Top Ten Best Playstation Characters


The Top Ten

1 Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

Crash Bandicoot was an original video game character, he was even ment to be the face of playstation and to compete with sonic(the face of sega), and mario(the face of nintendo). But now crash is not as popular and as good as he used to before crash of the titans came. So I think that crash is the the number one playstation character.

By far the most original character Sony has been involved with. Too bad his other publishers sent him into the downward spiral.

the first character I have ever played on a video game he's legendary - whatsitsname

My favorite.

2 Kratos

He has 4 major games as of right now, with Ghost of Sparta on the way, with the main trilogy completed, and a prequel (Chains of Olympus), this series is one of the, if not the best, videogame series in the world! Everytime Kratos appears on a console, it is not only the #1 seller, but the best critically review of the games on the playstation systems. Each game also pushes the graphical capabilities of the systems, and kratos, is amazing!

Kratos is the biggest playstation character ever. Strength, purpose, will.

Badass, angry and powerful bastard. What else do you need? - esxdri

All hail Kratos! - TriggerTrashKid

3 Solid Snake Solid Snake Solid Snake is a fictional character and one of the main protagonists of the video game series Metal Gear by Hideo Kojima. He is a legendary soldier cloned from Big Boss's DNA, who is sent to infiltrate and investigate the titular weapons in an effort to stop a potential war.

It's a simple thing to say who the coolest looking is, or who instills the greater sense of nostalgia, that's not what this should be about, things like this should be determined on the depth and merit of the character as a whole, Solid Snake has character traits I could list all day but the one thing I always come back to is the indomitable will he possesses, as long as there was a villain to stop he would never give up trying to make a better world, even if it meant burning up every last second he had left in his body, he taught me as a young gamer that as long as you have a true dream no matter what the odds, no matter who or what stands in your way, even if all you have is the determination to keep fighting, nothing can stop you.

Well that's my 2 cents anyway.

Sony's Snake(Metal Gear Saga) has come quite long ways from the starting pixel mashing portraits. Where Crash Bandicoot is a smash, Solid Snake delivers in wholesome. Big Boss has changed also in this series such as colors on the identification of the persona. The mesh with pixels is the simplest to gratify could find however still neat to shoot at times and give it a whirl of play. Dandy.

snake is the character from the single best videogame series to ever be created. he starred in the defining game of the playstation's life and some of the best games on the PS2 and PS3. He deserves it.

4 Spyro the Dragon Spyro the Dragon

More than 15 years later and Spyro 2: Ripto's rage is still my favorite game. It was just so pure, so innocent. These kind of games are not to be found ever again, unfortunately.

The insomniac games were legendary! I want the old games back! The new ones are rubbish!

Spyro the dragon. The sole name triggers chills down your spine. - keyson

That lovable dragon. - TriggerTrashKid

5 Ratchet Ratchet

He is my childhood hero, my cousin introduced me to the first Ratchet and Clank game. I have played and loved every single game. The series has gone so far, and Ratchet and Clank are also going to have their first movie based on the first game, which is set to be released in 2015. I will be 19 by the time it's released, I can't wait!

He manages to be both kid friendly and still interesting to adults at the same time, what more can you ask for. - lethaldose

The first game I ever played on PS2! Ratchet is cool, cute, awesome, funny and badass! Even Clank may seem cute with his little chuckle at times but he can be very dangerous too...

Amazing - TriggerTrashKid

6 Dante

He did really good in Devil May Cry Series. So his first enemy was Phantom, like a spider with a scorpion's tail. My favorite villain of the first one was Nightmare, and he even brought back Phantom, so that's pretty cool, I'm interested. If you see the newly released 2013 Devil May Cry, my favorite boss would be... BREAKING NEWS! BOB! A news reporter. He doesn't seem all that much but at the end you end up fighting multiple Android-Hims. Dante is really good and of course my favorite villain is Vergil, the Twin Brothers, Dante lost much family. Lost his mother, lost the Legendary Dark Knight Sparda (His Dad), and lost his brother to evil.

Are you kidding me!? Spyro, ratchet, crash and jack are on top of the most badass freaking demon hunter?! Dante is unbeatable! He can use any type of weapon with unmatchable skill and kill and destroy anyone that tries to stop him! He could beat anyone character of this list, even kratos!

More powerful than whatever Hell can throw at him. I'm referring to the original Dante since I never played the new DMC.

7 Sly Cooper Sly Cooper Sly Cooper is the title character of the Sly Cooper video game series, developed by Sucker Punch Productions and Sanzaru Games for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita consoles.

Sly Cooper is my all time favorite out of all the PlayStation Hero's, I loved him ever since my childhood and would endlessly play the 1st many times. He's got tons of abilities and I just like his design and his gang. I hope to see more go into the character in the future. May not be the best PlayStation character, but I would say he's ONE of the best, and possibly standing on the side of the face of PlayStation, that being, Crash Bandicoot, maybe even with Ratchet and Clank, and Jak and Daxter

I was expecting Sly cooper, Rachet and Clank, and Jak and Daxter to be in the top three because these guy have the best graphic I have ever seen in gaming when I was a kid, but Sly Cooper was the best he is my second favorite video game character right above him is Dante from Devil May Cry and the third is Ratchet and Clank. Anyway it was fun playing this guy when I was young and If I were to compare him to any superhero that I know It would be Batman. I mean he has one of the best villans I have ever seen in video games; Clockwerk

Sly Cooper especially with his gang is just the best video character to me. Plus this and Batman makes me think I can do some sneaky like them. I probably would dress up as batman if it wasn't so crazy. I would (but I don't)

Whatever. - TriggerTrashKid

8 Nathan Drake Nathan Drake

The Uncharted series are the best PlayStation 3 games for many reasons, with this grave robber being one of the biggest. Nate Drake is brave, intelligent and has one of the sharpest mouths in video gaming. Also, Nolan North is the voice behind this epic treasure hunter.

he is a man he kicks everyone's ass and uncharted 2 is the greatest game for ps3 actualy and sixth greatest of alltime after legend of zelda and mario and those nintendo people

He is better than the others. More popular than Lara Croft, better than Indiana Jones. His game beats the other rookie game.

One of my favorite characters. - TriggerTrashKid

Famous PlayStation character from one of the first exclusive games on the ps1

He should be top ten at least. That one crazy clown, who kills people to get a wish... a simple wish, amazing O. O he was another character I grew up playing, and was in one of the best games. All out warfare in cars. The remake is amazing to. - That_Dude5414

Seriously? Only 45? This guy is a real hero, definitely should be in top 10 at least, it's sad how these characters who we all loved are slowly and slowly getting forgotten by most people... I will always remember the adventures of Sir Daniel Fortesque... god I need to play the games now...
