Mario is the most popular character in ModNation Racers

You give gamers a chance to make their own character (and/or vehicle, in this case) and they’ll go nuts. Mario is always in the mix, it seems. He is in PS3 kart racer ModNation Racers, and now he has climbed to the top of the most popular user-created characters.

This Mario, created by user Peto-Mad, is quite good. That’s probably why it’s at the top of the rankings. Other top characters include Spider-Man and a Transformer. Oh, and Iron Man, which was done perfectly, as you’ll see in our gallery.

The folks at Joystiq also have pictures of some of the top vehicles. I love the Mystery Machine! There’s some really talented gamers out there.

So Nintendo and Sony are cool with this?
