- 15 Jan, 2023
A recent study conducted by an organization has determined the most popular video game character in America. The data was collected from Google search data over the past five years and has revealed some surprising results. This study has sparked a debate among gamers as to which character is the best and who could beat up who. The discussion has ranged from the Legendary Pokemon to Kratos from God of War. The study aims to find the answer to this debate.
The study was based on five years of Google search data from the United States. Sonic the Hedgehog was revealed to be the most popular video game character, with 758,300 monthly searches. Pac-Man followed in second place with 758,300 monthly searches, and Kirby was third with 432,000 monthly searches. Kratos from the God of War series ranked fifth with 209,010 monthly searches. Super Mario characters Yoshi, Princess Peach, and Bowser took the sixth, seventh, and tenth spots, respectively.
The popularity of Sonic, Pac-Man, and Kirby is likely due to the fact that they have been around since the early days of gaming and have stood the test of time. Kratos' popularity likely stems from the release of the 2018 game God of War and its sequel, God of War: Ragnarok.
The characters from Mario were also popular, with Yoshi in sixth place, Princess Peach in seventh, and Bowser in tenth. Yoshi is particularly popular due to his friendly nature and his ability to swallow things with his long tongue. Princess Peach is popular due to her strength and independence, and Bowser is a fan favorite for his villainous nature.
The study conducted by the organization has revealed that Mario, Link, and Sonic are the most popular video game characters in America. These characters have been around for decades and have become iconic figures in the video game industry. The debate over which character is the best is sure to continue as fans continue to argue over who could beat up who and who is the best character ever. Regardless of the outcome, these three characters will remain iconic figures in the video game industry.
