Forgotten Video Game Mascots From The 1990s

Nowadays video games can have a totally nondescript person with a normal haircut and totally normal clothes as the main character because many modern games focus on the storyline instead of the visual gimmicks.

But back in the gimmick-filled 90s video game mascots were all gunning to be the next Mario or Sonic or Crash Bandicoot, so the crazier the character and their wardrobe the better.

And while some of those mascots succeeded in becoming part of video game history others like Rocky Rodent, Awesome Possum and Croc didn't make a very big impression with gamers so for them it was game over.

But a few beloved 90s game mascots may still star in new games despite not making it big like Mario, such as Conker the Squirrel, Banjo Kazooie and Bubsy the Bobcat, who is coming back after 20 years so his new game The Woolies Strike Back had better not suck!
