The 5 most recocognised gaming icons

Pac Man

Gamerlimit.com has put together their list of the top 5 gaming icons of our time, while we obviously won’t be complaining about how won I do think that they have missed some important ones out.

Their list is as follows

5.  NES Controller
4.  Space Invader
3. T-Shaped Tetris piece
2.  Mario 
1. Pac Man

Pac-Man and Mario I have to agree with and the T-piece from Tetris is possibly there but I would have replaced that with the Z shaped one to be honest.

I also find Space Invaders more recognisable than tetris and mario so that would be my number 2. 

Some of the ones that I feel are missing are the following in no particular order

1. Sonic the Hedgehog
1. Lara Croft
1. Donkey Kong
1. Master Chief

Do we have some other great ones that I have missed out?
