Ok, so I was inspired by those alphabet playmats you get for children to make a Gamer's Alphabet version, to put on a t-shirt or whatever. Here is a draft of the design:



The characters are listed below (including the series for which they are most famous, where the series is not eponymous)

Alex Kidd
Bomberman
Crash Bandicoot
Donkey Kong
Ezio Auditore da Firenze (Assassin's Creed)
Fox McCloud (Star Fox)
Gordon Freeman (Half-Life)
Heavy (Team Fortress)
Ice Climbers
Jill Valentine (Resident Evil)
Kirby
Link (The Legend of Zelda)
Mario
NiGHTS
Otacon (Metal Gear Solid)
Pac-Man
Q*Bert
Ryu (Street Fighter)
Sonic The Hedgehog
Terry Bogard (Fatal Fury)
Ulala (Space Channel 5)
Viewtiful Joe
Wario (Super Mario)
Xiao Qiao (Dynasty Warriors)
Yoshimitsu (Tekken)
Zero (Mega Man)

Naturally I was looking for iconic characters, and I set myself the impediment of characters known chiefly for videogame fame that I could get a decent image of on a white background (I had to remove two initial choices of Nathan Drake and Ico for that reason). I also tried not to lean too heavily on one particular series, genre or era, so went for a mixed bag of characters as long as I could apply the principles that they were sufficiently iconic and that I could obtain an appropriate image.

I wanted to share this draft to find out the community's thoughts. Are there any characters that people would swap out? What characters would you like to see instead? Any suggestions are welcome.
