From Pwn or Die Blog:

There is a monument in the United States devoted to four of our greatest American Presidents. Mt. Rushmore is a stone monument that features carved out heads of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

These four men have been great examples of leaders of our country, but the monument was made from 1927-1941 so many have argued that there would be better fits for the monument now. If people had their way, it may look different if built today.

In the video game world there has been no such monument built so we thought it would be fun to try and pick the four most worthy gaming icons for our fictional statue. Selecting just four was no easy task. In fact every single recommendation was different than the next. In narrowing down the field we used the criteria of longevity, importance to the industry, and how recognizable the characters are.


Their choices:

- Mario
- Master Chief
- Lara Croft
- Sonic the Hedgehog


I'd go with:
1. Pac-Man
2. Mario
3. Master Chief
4. Kratos/Snake

I'm actually leaning towards Snake more than Kratos, for what it's worth.

I like Ryu & Pikachu, but not feeling Liu Kang. Yes, MK is a huge series and very well-known, but I think SF edges it out and using two fighting characters would be illogical/useless.

If trying to represent the most aspects of gaming I would prob. go with:

1. Mario [platforming, sidescrolling, 2d & 3d, open world, action/adventure]
2. Tetris block [The Z-shape; brain games, puzzles, etc.]
3. Snake [shooting games of all kinds (espionage, tactical, mutliplayer, etc.)]
4. Pikachu [adventure, arena, fighting, photography, and more in the pokemon series as a whole]
