Will mobile phone gaming kill off systems like the 3DS?

Don't know if you guys heard but people are saying pac-man is the most recognizeable character in video games. Do you thinkg that this is do to the large number or casual gamers now voting? How did they come up with this conclusion?

No, Mario is much more recognisable than Pac Mac (though Pac Man is very recognisable). Mario is is the most famous gaming character in existance and is an icon for Nintendo and gaming in general. He's even more recognisable than Mickey Mouse now.

I think this one could be a hard one to call depending on the circumstances however I do think it depends on how much of a gamer you are. I have found that people who are not much of a gamer always recognise Mario alot more than they would do Pac Man, I think it's more down to the fact that Mario get's advertised alot more not only in shops but on the TV than I have ever seen Pac Man get advertised.

Hm, I would have to say Pac-Man, though I don't want to. He's a big yellow dot. Easily distinguishable. Mario *could* just look like any ole cartoon character to Gramma Fatsack.

Doesn't change the notion that MArio is the most IMPORTANT video game character in history.

As much as I love Mario, I have to agree that Pac Man edges him out as the most recognizable. Among gamers, Mario is a colossal icon. He's done more for gaming than Pac Man ever dreamed of.

Still, you can't deny that Pac Man is older and is one of the original smash* hits. (If not THE original.) The older generation is more likely to remember him because they saw and played Pac Man before there was such a thing as a gamer. Many of them don't even like video games, but they played that one.

Almost everyone who knows Mario knows Pac Man. Not everyone who knows Pac Man knows Mario.

*My use of the word "smash" got me thinking. Pac Man could be in the next Smash Bros, too! He'd be his modern 3D version, of course, but when he gets the smash ball, everyone else turns purple and he turns 2-D and goes chomping around the screen, KO'ing whoever he eats!

Nope. Sorry guys. It's Mario no doubt about it. Pac-Man is just a show off for no reason.

Absolutely hilarious, bro.

@ Antilles: That is a freaking amazing idea.

Oh yes. Pac-Man. And a fine idea for the smash attack. I also want to see Mega Man, Simon Belmont, and Ryu from Ninja Gaiden.

Mega Man is a gimme on anyone's list. I already had Simon Belmont on my dream list. I hadn't thought of Ryu, but good choice.

It all seems very possible to me. Really, with the tremendous success of the last game, I would think publishers would almost PAY Nintendo to have their characters in the game.

Like Antilles said, it depends on the generation. However, my parents were playing mario when they first bought me a nintendo back in the day. They grew up with pac-man, but still know and love mario.

I'd have to vote for mario (although it's extremely close)
