More than once I've seen Parappa and Spike dismissed as wasted and "not all-stars", when the fact is Parappa the Rapper and Ape Escape were some of the most iconic PS1 games.
How can people say franchises like Killzone and Heavenly Sword are more representative of PlayStation than the aforementioned ones? Seriously, when I first heard about this, my first thought was that Parappa should be playable, not, say, Nariko or Radec.
I am the cheese. I am the best character on the show. I am better than both the salami and the bologna combined.
The first time I heard about this, the first thought that came into my mind was "oh god, Spike would be absolutely amazing in this". So glad he made it in since him and Ape Escape are amazing.Same for Parappa.

I think it's just because the PS1 stars haven't been relevant in a long time. In their day they were extremely relevant, but this generation didn't see their relevance, "back in the day." Older folks who don't like the PS1 characters and dismiss them as wsted slots simply found their own personal Playstation all-stars.
