Nintendo have Mario surrounded by his trusted lieutenants - Link, DK, Samus, Fox and Pikachu.

With Sony it's not so clean cut. A few years ago Lara was on top of them all like a malevolent dominatrix but now Drake, Jak, Ratchet, Kratos, Snake and Sackboy all share her roost.

So to that end who rises above the mediocre to claim the Microsoft crown. There are many contenders I will not insult you by listing them but would like, eventually, to get a poll going to see if the likes of Chief and Marcus just run away with it or whether it may be a bit more interesting.

Firstly know we need a shortlist.

A shortlist of 16 who will square of, stand toe to toe till one remains.

So please post those whom you deem qualify for such an accolade. Entries must be of characters that have only been on an Xbox console or started life on the Xbox (so Shepard is eligible). They can come from Arcade games and boxed retail games.

When we have a good selection, hopefully 16, I will get the first poll going.

It's just a bit of fun and apologies if this has been done recently and evokes eyerolls at its lameness and unoriginal nature.

Its Master Chief. If it wasn't for Halo I don't think there would even be a Xbox 360. Then comes Gears. Also Shepard wouldn't be eligible since its not owned by Microsoft anymore. Most of the "Mascots" are characters that are owned by the companies they are tied too. Also Lara was never really Sony's top.

This kinda goes against the rules of the thread, since Portal was on PC first. Anyway, I'm going for Masterchief only because Halo was the first major success on the Xbox. If you mention Xbox to a PS3 fanboy then I'm sure Halo will work it's way into the conversation within the first minute.

^^^Whooops.... fail on my part, I'm rather sick today so my brain isn't 100% :p

I'd like to recall my original suggestion and now go with Masterchief as well... it makes the most sense IMO.

I'd nominate Alan Wake. Dark, mysterious, 360 exclusive. Add in Zippy Zombie from Kinect sports and Miss Aubrey from Dance Central and you have some damn fine exclusive characters. Go with Saren for Mass Effect. ME1 is still exclusive, and he was the only major character to not appear in #2.

Banjo & Kazooie should be on the list. Despite having premiered on the competition's console, both platforming games are available on XBLA. They got a brand new adventure that was 360 exclusive, and were also the Xbox-only characters in that Sonic kart racing game.

*sigh* Yeah its the Master Chief. Compared to other titles Halo is ehh so so. I used to play Halo 3 a lot but then after that it got kinda silly. Reach was epic but whatever MC is the Xbox figurehead.

If it was my choice, then Marcus Fenix.

But all in all I'd say it's Master Chief.

Worhammer
04-30-2011, 02:30 AM
Definitely the Chief. He's the most iconic character, followed by Marcus of course. There are a lot of lesser known ones. Alan Wake, the hard to pin down Fable Hero (He's always looked generally the same...) then there's the kid from Limbo, the Viva Pinata animals, Kameo (both big selling points at 360 launch), Frank West & his buddy Chuck Greene. Hmmm....what else....Ilo & Milo, King Raskully...

Unfortunately, there aren't many MS exclusives. They've focused more on the exclusive DLCs to gain their foothold, instead of console exclusives. That's another debate for another time, though.

Already know how this poll will end

Xbox 360-Master Chief

Personally, I would vote for Commander Shepard even though he's now on the PS3. So he's not really a 360 mascot anymore.......I go with the original 3 I said before

The only reason I bought an xbox was cause of Master Chef.

That's exactly right. I was a PS2 only gamer for a long time until I saw Halo and bought an Xbox just to play it.

I also think second place should go to Marcus Fenix. And now with Master Chief dead you could make the argument that Marcus Fenix is actually the better mascot for the Xbox 360. Since ODST and Reach never involve Master Chief, Fenix is actually the more visible and relevant mascot.

TakahashiDemon
04-30-2011, 08:06 PM
It obviously be one of the exclusives..
Masterchief would stand out though out of all them, so he's probably the mascot.

Just to set a spark to all the MASTER CHIEF stuff. Halo was a PC title also, and was not an XBox exclusive. Neither was Halo 2, it was released same time as Vista.

Only Halo 3, Halo 3 : ODST and Halo Reach so far are xbox exclusives.

Same with Fable & soon to be PC also Fable 2. So basically your probably looking and Gear of War guy, as ME is no longer exclusive either.

Personally I think the exclusive games idea sucks as, I would love to play some God of War etc. But don't see why I should buy a PS3 (I cannot afford) for a few games.

Oh and Master Chief is NOT dead he is in cryo and the ship he is on crash lands on another planet (check the video at the end of Halo 3 after finishing it on Legendary).

Obviously gonna be the most popular character.
That's why Mario is chosen for Nintendo.
PS3 is different.

It'll probably be Halo, but they're not making games anymore so I don't think so.

It has to be a character where games will continue to be made, like Mario. He's just too popular, and always has new games coming out.

Yeah Halo isn't Xbox exclusive but Master Chief is ALWAYS tied to the Xbox. Like many people have said, if it wasn't for the Chief...

Tommy from Prey might also be a contender. I'm not sure if that game was on the PC or not.

And finally, Marcus Penix. Because a badass marine in sage power armor who fights aleins and doesnt afraid of anything isn't cool enough.

You can't just go by who you THINK should be the mascot. Personally, I think Samus should be Nintendo's mascot. But she isn't. Why? Cause Mario is way more recognizable. And I understand that.

That's how it works. Not everybody knows who Marcus Fenix is, even if they recognize him as a character (which many probably don't) they don't know his name. Master Chief? Everybody knows who that is, and would recognize him on sight.

Wait. No Commander Shepard? N7, all the way.

Mass Effect was originally released as a 360 exclusive in 2007 until ported to the PC in 2008. Commander Shepard's legacy was already solidified before if it was confirmed that the PS3 was getting ME2 a year after 360 users.

360-I'd say Master Chief. Even people that dont like vidio games know who that is they say ''From Halo''. Not everyone would know who Marcus Fenix is,though hes my 360 mascot.

For Nintendo-No doubt Mario.

halo is no doubt the pillar of Xbox, the most important franchise, but for a mascot masterchief doesn't have the vibrant and friendly image of the like of Mario and sonic.

I honestly think the avatars would be the best option for a mascot, the are after all our reflections in gaming and fun looking.

its a shame that Microsoft hasn't put enough attention to avatars.

FatalDeathSG45
04-07-2013, 08:47 PM
I actually consider Master Chief XBOX's mascot because of one simple thing: Halo is the reason XBOX even exists at all.

Sure, he may not be as kid-friendly an image as Mario or Sonic or... whoever Sony's mascot is, but it's not appearance that makes a mascot. It's how much of a role that character played in popularizing their console. As I said, without Halo, XBOX would have gone the way of the Dreamcast or the Virtual Boy. Master Chief is a lovable, if robotic, protagonist and has become one of the biggest video game characters ever.

So... yeah, I consider Master Chief the mascot of XBOX :)

This really just brings to light a serious flaw with the Xbox console and that's the lack of exclusives (coupled with the lack of identifiable characters.)

When you get right down to it:

Master Chief
Marcus Fenix*
Theresa* (Blind woman from Fable 1, 2 & 3)
Alan Wake
Kameo
Joanna Dark*
Banjo & Kazooie*
Any Pinata from Viva Pinata

That's running through every store-released game on the Xbox 360 that wasn't released on 360 or Wii. The ones starred means they were released on PC or (in the case of Rare) the N64. Obviously missing a few games missing like Forza, Project Gotham, Fusion Frenzy, etc... where the game was either really bad or there were no characters to be mentioned. Overall, though, pretty bad list.

Now if you want to keep going back to the original Xbox (again including PC releases and consoles prior to that generation, but excluding games that have received ports or sequels on other 7th gen consoles.)

Mechwarrior- Mechassault 2
Edgar- Phantom Dust
Darth Revan- Star Wars: KOTOR
Blinx- Blinx: The Time Sweeper
Glitch- Metal Arms
Any of the characters from Whacked
Ryo- Shenmue
The mech from Steel Battalion
Nathan- Crimson Skies
Conker- Conker: Live and Reloaded
Orta- Panzer Dragoon Orta
Brutus- Brute Force
Vince- Voodoo Vince
Cooper- Grabbed by the Ghoulies
P.A.S.S- N.U.D.E
Derrick Cole- Breakdown
Gideon Wyeth- Advent Rising
Ailish- Sudeki
Commandos- Star Wars: Republic Commandos
Your character- Jade Empire
Stubbs- Stubbs the Zombie


LOTS more games to pick from!

Mercury
04-08-2013, 10:59 PM
Definitely MC - he's the reason I bought an Xbox at the time (I was very happy with my PS2 and Gamecube, but I had to have Halo). Then Marcus Fenix or Farmer Dom. If Mass Effect had stayed Xbox only, I would put Shepard in there.

Ninja Eagle
04-09-2013, 10:26 AM
Master Chief easily. He's exclusive to Xbox. So therefore he is the mascot. I don't think Alan Wake would make a very good mascot even though he's a brilliant character. Master Chief is just more well known I guess.

Haha yea Blinx! I'd say he would probably be the closest thing to a mascot Microsoft ever had (Since he was one of the few kid-friendly games which seems to be a criteria for being a mascot for a gaming company). Plus, he looks like a total boss with his steel toed boots and pilot goggles! Bring on Blinx 2!

Blinx, Vince and Banjo should all be the official mascots. I mean literally, they should feature them as hidden characters in ever first party game and everything.

Master Chief... eh... I don't even like him in Halo, but I guess he is the most famous.

CyberPunch83
04-11-2013, 08:06 PM
I firmly believe that Master Chief in almost indisputably the mascot for the Xbox, going all the way back to the launch of the original Xbox alongside Halo 1 in November 2001. It could be argued that in recent years, some other characters have come forward from other exclusives and made cases for themselves as mascots (Marcus Fenix, among others), but to many Chief was the first character instantly recognizable and attributable to the Xbox.

There's already a Blinx 2, but I definitely would like to see another one. If MS was smart, they'd do an HD remake of the originals and bring the series back from the dead since he's an original Xbox Platform character.

Conker and Banjo should both definitely maintain a presence in the Xbox library, but they're not original characters to the Xbox brand, so they really need to try and get some more likable characters out there.

I would also like to see Psychonauts and Metal Arms get picked up by Microsoft and see some support as well. The biggest thing Xbox is lacking that Nintendo and Sony do well are platformers. MS needs to get some good platforming games in the works.

It's obviously Master Chief. He was pretty much THE force that sold and made Xbox what it is whether or not you like the character/game. If you ask anybody who is the mascot for xbox they will probably say the same aswell which is why he IS the mascot.

Marcus Fenix would be a runner up obviously.
Alan Wake, probably not. Not that many people know the game outside of xbox and even within xbox it's a pretty niche fanbase.
Viva Pinata wouldn't work seeing as there are multiplatform sequels. Goes against what a mascot is really.

Any characters from games such as Dead Rising, Mass Effect, Lost planet etc. also wouldn't fit into the description of a mascot seeing as their sequels are multiplatform.

Some people really don't see what a mascot is. Mario, Link, Samus and Fox are exclusive to nintendo, which is why they are eligible to be a mascot.
Crash Bandicoot and Spyro where (at the time) Sony exclusive characters, since they went multiplatform notice how Sony doesn't really use them as a selling point for the console.

Also Lara Croft and Snake where never really Sony mascots. Tomb Raider was multiplatform and I believe started on the PC, Sony just did the Microsoft thing and bought the rights for the sequels to be exclusive. Metal Gear also started on a Nintendo console (the NES I think) so the only company that could have ever claimed Snake as a mascot are Nintendo.

I couldn't think of anyone better than The Cole Train as Xbox's mascot. :p

Cole over John-117?

No. Just, no!
