Hump day. Yes that means we are in the middle of the week, but even if you keep checking it will still only be Wednesday. When preparing for writing today I was thinking what else could be forgotten when it hit me why not just do a list of my favourite forgotten characters in video games.
5. Zool - Zool Series
He was a Gremlin Ninja. How awesome is that? Plus all the levels in the game look like Candy Land. The 90's had tons of Platform games this one just failed to make the cut probably because he was on the commodore 64, but if only eh?
4. The Ice Climbers - Ice Climbers Series
Sure they make an appearance in Smash Bros, but not the most recent versions of the game. Plus when was the last time there was an actual Ice Climbers game. I looked it up 1985 ya so I think they qualify.
3. Tiny - Tiny Tank Up Your Arsenal
So you are an adorable destructive robot who happens to be a tank. Sadly only one game was released, but that doesn't ruin the memories
2. Marina Liteyears - Mischief Makers
So when the world was switching all there games to 3D one chose to stay in the 2D bubble. Now what is weird is this game now is looked very highly upon, but at the time many wrote it off because of the 2D platforming.
1. Earthworm Jim - Earthworm Jim Series
I don't know about all of you, but these games and his show were always fun to watch and play. If the gaming world could forget about the absolutely horrible 3D I think we could see the return of this guy.
There you have it this week's list. What are some of characters that you think the gaming world has forgotten about. As always let me know one way or another.
