Nintendo has to be the Mario Bros series or Zelda

XBOX is probably Halo series or Forza

Sony I am not sure on is it Ratchet and Clank? Grand Turismo?

What do you think are the game franchises that people automatically think "PlayStation" or "XBOX" or "Nintendo" when you mention the name of the game?

Uncharted

Gran Turismo

Rachet and Clank

Little Big Planet

MLB The Show

Killzone

Team Ico Games (Last Guardian and Shadow of the Colossus)

And new Ips such as Ghost of Tsushima and Horizon Zero Dawn, and many more SUCH AS

Sony never really settled on a mascot like the other brands.

They had a bunch of options that none really took over, which I think says good things about the early years of PS support. PS2 didn't have shit for first-party support, but it had a lot of great 3rd part games.

not attempting to troll at all.. I have not had a PS since the PS1 and the last game I played on it was Grand Turismo (I have played friends PS consoles since though).

I just was not aware if (other than what I listed) they had one name that stood out among the rest. Looking at your list SOCOM would be another one.. not sure if you went to the average casual gamer and said "Sly Cooper" they could tell you what console it was for.. the same way if you said "Sunset Overdrive" the average casual gamer could not tell you that it was an XBOX game. I think to make it a "known franchise" there has to be multiple releases of a game in the series (3 or more)

Nintendo is still the various Mario games and spin offs such as Yoshi, Smash, Kart, etc...

MS has Halo and Gears

Sony has a crap ton of IPs that will be different as being known for depending on what you play. For me... it's Uncharted.

@Star67: You're butthurt over the OP's picks for PS, and Gran Turismo is synonymous with Sony, its flagship franchise, highest selling franchise, and i'm no cow such as yourself so maybe you can correct this part if wrong, but the only Sony franchise to have a game on every single PS. And now the franchise is average at best LOL.

Well Nintendo = Mario, Xbox = Halo, and Sega = Sonic is a lock. Not too sure about Sony but I guess God of War would probably be what it would most be linked to.

Nintendo and Sony are not consoles, but console makers. Also, unlike Sony which has its Playstation brand, and Microsoft with its Xbox brand, Nintendo does not have a long-standing console brand. The NES/Famicom and Wii brands were each discontinued after two generations and I doubt that the success of the Nintendo Switch will change that.

Nintendo - Mario and Zelda

Microsoft - Halo and Forza

Sony - Changed over time:

PS1 - Final Fantasy and Metal Gear

PS2 - GTA

PS3 - Uncharted

PS4 - Tough call. They had a lot of big hits, but I wouldn't say there was one that defined the system.

Edit: I take it back, Uncharted and God of War for PS4

I have to agree about Xbox controllers using AA batteries. So many people make fun of this, I think it's a selling point.

MS only has Halo.

Nintendo has Mario & Zelda. which are obviously head and shoulders above anything.

Sony has too many good franchises to pick just one...

The Last of Us 1 & 2 ? (two best games but only two of them, and are recent...)

Uncharted?

God of War?

Gran Turismo ?

R&C ? J&D? Crash? etc..

I think Sony and PC are more similar due to how many faces they have for the platform.

Sony - Crash, Drake, Kratos, GT, etc.

PC - Blizzard Games, Valve Games.

Nintendo - I feel this is definitely Mario until the end of boomer gen.
