Game reviews and news

Who’s your video game hero?

From sports to comics, every kind of fun has its heroes. Here are some top video game heroes and their latest games.

MARIO: The mustachioed plumber is always saving Princess Peach. He has been in more than 200 games, including last year’s terrific Mario Kart Wii.

CRASH BANDICOOT: The wacky marsupial continues his fight against Dr. Neo Cortex, most recently in Crash: Mind Over Mutant (Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older).

SONIC: The speedy adventurer is featured in more than 100 games, 36 for mobile phones alone. He currently stars in Sonic and the Black Knight (Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older).

LINK: The Legend of Zelda hero proves his bravery with his Master Sword in every game, most recently Phantom Hourglass.

POKEMON: With about 500 Pokemon, it’s hard to pick just one hero. Maybe that’s why the series, with the new Pokemon Platinum, has sold more than 175 million games.

SPONGEBOB: The buck-toothed sea sponge appears in dozens of video games (even Monopoly), including 2008’s standout Drawn to Life.

SPYRO: The perky purple dragon joined forces with former enemy Cynder in last year’s Dawn of the Dragon (Rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older). Keep an eye out for the Spyro movie in 3D.

  9. ??? says:

    Mario, Sonic, Link, and Pokemon are some of the best series ever, mainly because of the new games of their series that are being released. But why no Captain Olimar? He’s a GREAT character, especially with the upcoming release of Pikmin 3. ( Yes, at the E3 convention or whatever they call it, Shigeru Miamoto, Mario game creator, announced that the Pikmin would have another game, due to its popularity.) WOOT!
