Who's Your Favorite?

Oricon held a survey called "Who's your favorite game character?" recently. The results are as follows:

1. Mario // Mario Series
2. Cloud // Final Fantasy VII
3. Yoshi // Mario Series
4. Pikachu // Pokemon Series
4. Solid Snake // Metal Gear Solid Series
4. Slyme // Dragon Quest Series
7. Chocobo // Final Fantasy Series
8. Doraemon // Doraemon Series
8. Kinopio // Mario Cart
10. Professor Layton // Professor Layton Series
10. Yuna // Final Fantasy X
10. Squall // Final Fantasy VIII

Mario and FF characters are dominating the market as expected. As a personal preference, I'm glad to see Chocobo and Squall among the list.

She's alright once you get to "know" her, really. Though probably a major fanboy factor at work here, I've no doubt.

Yay for Slyme on there! :D

I really wonder why Dragon Quest isn't half as popular here as in Japan. But then I don't even know if they were ever ported here. LOLz.

I wouldn't have paid attention to it if the whole GAME CHARACTER logo didn't catch my eye, haha.

For some reason I'm more surprised at Squall being in the list. I was sure he'd make something like top 50, but wow top 10? As for Yuna, it's the power of Japanese fanboys I'm sure ;)

Ugh, I hate Yoshi. Yuna I can almost understand.

Aug. 12th, 2008 12:01 am (UTC)
I can't say I hate Yoshi but I'm beyond annoyed by the sound he makes on my TV screen, lol.
I'm sure Yuna's second installment of dresses made many J-fanboys swoon for this poll.

On a random note, I totally didn't know that Chiling Lin (the best-selling Taiwanese model ATM) graduated from my university. What a small world!

FAKE BOOBS CAME FROM UT!!! xDDDDDDD

Haha I was wondering: how can such a tall, slender person have such amazing boobs? Even if she is hot, haha.

LOL, Mario. I am happy to see Squall up there, but tied with Yuna? :\ What the f, man.
lisamio
Aug. 12th, 2008 12:03 am (UTC)
It is amusing to see them lined up @ the same spot out of all things. I just totally imagined Squall murmuring "...whatever" to Yuna's "oh my goood what shall I doooo~" @ the result of this poll, ROFLMAO!

Good luck on your formal project in two days!

No worries, I totally sympathize with you ^^; /says the person who loves NPCs the most in practically every single FF game except IX

Thanks~ I hope I don't screw up big-time, lolz.

Seniority wins, I suppose xD And FF is more for the hardcore/semi-hardcore gamers so I'm not surprised less people know of its characters, hhe.

Wow, Mario > Cloud?! D:

Doraemon is in, lol :DDD
lisamio
Aug. 12th, 2008 11:12 am (UTC)
Because more people play Mario than Final Fantasy~ hahahha.
I wouldn't be surprised if Doraemon was in the "Who's your favorite ANIME character" poll, but wow, games? xD
