Gotta be Mario, for so long(maybe not as much right now) he has always been the face of video games. People who dont know shit about games, they still know Mario.

Yeah, probably Mario.

Or maybe lately that Pikachu? Doesn't everyone know that.

Solid Snake is a popular one, but does not belong among the top ones, no matter how good the games are and how cool the character is.

(And it's spelled Pacman)

Mario. Young and old, everyone knows Mario. Megaman doesn't have the mainstream exposure, Sephiroth DEFINITELY doesn't, Pikachu is mostly for younger gamers, pacman isn't so popular anymore, and Solid Snake might have a great following, but come on. Really? And Pacman definitely doesn't have the popularity he had like twenty years ago.

It's Mario. Probably followed by Sonic.

Sonic? In modern popularity, Master Chief is likely above Sonic.

I would say Mario and second would most likely be Sonic. Come on; how many game series can throw out crappy game after crappy game and still sell as well as Sonic has?

Master Chief is definitely popular, but he doesn't even begin to reach the wide demographic that not only played Sonic video games, but watched him on television.

Our modern video game characters are more talked about than Sonic and Mario, but the amount of people who know who those two are isn't even comparable.

We'd have to define popularity. Current popularity? Popularity at their peak? Or are we assuming an experiment where we ask every person on earth to identify various characters? Whoever gets recognized more is more popular. A few have already touched on this distinction, which would be needed to make this a more objective analysis.

Because in something like Sonic v. Master Chief, MC has current but I'd go out on a limb and say Sonic is more universally recognizable, if only because he's been around longer, and on more systems.

Mario and Link, obviously, though. Those are a pretty clear 1-2 in my mind.

First off I'm taking "popular" to mean more widley known since knowing what character people like more is very difficult to actually know. Second, Sonic is WAYYYYY more known then any 'Gaylo' character probably ever will be. Master Chief isnt even in the same league as Sonic in that respect. Without a doubt though Mario is the most known character, I'd say hes about as recognisable as Superman or Mickey Mouse, EVERYONE knows him even people who have never seen or touched a video game before. No other character in videogames comes even remotley close to Mario, hell most characters in ALL media dont come close to Mario. He is an Icon, to many, Mario IS the poster boy of videogames.

I dunno; Sonic gives Mario a huge run for his money in this field. Heck Sonic is so popular he was the first video game character to be placed in the Macy Day Parade.
