Official PlayStation Magazine have asked the top hardcore gamers, their readers, who have voted in their tens of thousands to crown their favourite PlayStation Icon.
The magazine presents the top 20 PlayStation Icons of all time in the February issue, and Crash Bandicoot was voted top of the poll.
Speaking about the winner, Official PlayStation Magazine Editor Matthew Pellett said; “Despite being absent from our screens since 2008, the original PlayStation Icon remains in the hearts of modern gamers. Our readers have spoken loud and clear: even though Naughty Dog has moved on to blockbusters such as the Uncharted series and The Last Of Us, the developer’s PS1 marsupial still casts a shadow over all other gaming characters. Thousands of people voted Crash Bandicoot into the number one spot and calls for his return to PlayStation grow louder every single month.”
The top 10 are:
9 Cloud Strife
8 Pyramid Head
7 Big Boss
6 Lara Croft
5 Scorpion/Sub-Zero (joint placement)
4 Nathan Drake
2 Solid Snake
1 Crash Bandicoot
