We can see Snake is the fourth character in the list of top characters.


In the top games list are four Metal Gear games (that were also mentioned during the award show). Metal Gear Solid can be found at number 10, Metal Gear Solid 4 at 14, Metal Gear Solid 3 at number 18, Ground Zeroes at 23 and Peace Walker at 34.



It’s clear Metal Gear played an important part in the legacy of PlayStation, and that Japanese gamers are still very fond of Kojima’s series.
