Absurd.

I was browsing GameFAQs in my free time, and was very surprised to see an article titled, The Top 10 Rabbits in Video Games. I was even more disappointed when I realized that Jazz Jackrabbit was #3. That’s right. NUMBER THREE. Some jerk named Max, who’s ever heard of him, got number two. Who cares. And number one. READER RABBIT? Like, REALLY? Reader Rabbit? I mean, I loved that game when I was a kid, but… Anyway, that’s just ridiculous, but if anyone is interested, the article is here:

…omg. We were done in by a children’s icon.

…oh wait.

remove the predator bit and i’d vote this to the frontpage!

Fail. I can understand Jazz losing to Max, but… Reader Rabbit? Seriously?

Reader Rabbit was only an educational game on the PC. There’s no way that JJ should be 3rd.

READER RABBIT? WTF, MATE!

You’re seriously missing out if you’ve never played the Sam & Max games ;)

Marijn on 11 Jul 2009 at 13:58

I cant stress Disguise comment enough. Its awesome.

SPAZ18 on 11 Jul 2009 at 16:23

Sam & Max FTW! I have played the entire Series One and I loved every bit of it.

plunK on 11 Jul 2009 at 19:36

WHERE IS SPAZ. WHY IS SPAZ NOT ON THIS LIST ALONGSIDE OR ABOVE JAZZ?

Slaz on 12 Jul 2009 at 19:29

Maybe the author of this article had some kind of special memory about this ‘Reader Rabbit’ thing. But the thing is, I’ve never heard of it, neither have any of my friends.. There’s no way Jazz can go below that, not if it comes to popularity. Sam & Max is an other thing yep.

Ron97 on 12 Jul 2009 at 21:47

plunK is right. I think Spaz should be 1st and Jazz 2nd.

DennisKainz on 13 Jul 2009 at 16:22

Cream should be 3rd.
The one of SonicX.

PurpleJazz on 13 Jul 2009 at 18:51

Cream was honestly a totally useless character, just like about 90% of all Sonic protagonists.

CrimiClown on 14 Jul 2009 at 16:58

The funny thing about Sonic is that everyone has cool moves like flying and climbing walls and whatnot and Sonic is just fast… IF any faster than the other characters. Being fast will only help you run in enemies and spikes more often.

That said, Cream sucks.

Lark on 15 Jul 2009 at 05:40

Mmm yeah I hear good things about Sam and Max, maybe I didnt realize Max was from that ame, but srsly, reader rabbit.

Slaz on 15 Jul 2009 at 18:19

I don’t see the point why Sega is releasing new Sonic games with even more spin-off characters (like Cream yes) and strange gameplay elements that nobody wants to play. The latest in the series, Sonic next-gen and Unleashed, had a good impression at first but were a huge faillure thereafter. Yet the whole fanboy population can’t admit that they’re playing low quality games..

M y l e s on 17 Jul 2009 at 12:02

Sega should improve on their crappy games and make good one. Especially Sonic Rush, which, unfortunately, got ruined by the appearance of Cream in it. >=(

4Kids should stop making crappy Sonic cartoons. Especially ones with “Chris Thorndyke” in.

PurpleJazz on 17 Jul 2009 at 12:36

Sonic Rush was alright, yeah sure the story sucked but would honestly buy a Sonic game for the plot over gameplay?

omigosh! READER RABBIT?!

ahem, ahem This is an outrage!
Methinks the author maybe had a wee bit of bias, don’tcha think?
Although I will admit that we are pretty biased ourselves, in that half the people commenting here [including myself] have never played Reader Rabbit [some again like me have also never played Max & Sam], and they say it sucks, c’mon that’s just disgraceful.
I only say that Jazz is best because I’ve played it for so long, and from seeing a picture of RR [who actually looks kinda like a Jazz ripoff :P], who’d wanna play that?

Puffie40 on 18 Jul 2009 at 23:50

I remember the stuff from The Learning Company. Gizmos and Gadgets (As well as the other super solver series) was one of my favorites when I was growing up, and Reader Rabbit 2 was a cute little game.

Doo doo de doo doo de doo doo doodododoooodoo…

SlaYo on 20 Jul 2009 at 16:24

Max should’ve been first, Jazz second. Having said that, nobody ever agrees with a list another person makes.

Dark_Petal on 29 Jul 2009 at 16:57

Buneary and Lopunny shouldn’t be on the list. They belong on the list of most sucky pokemon (yes, I’m a pokemon fan).

Ahem… Who the hell is Reader Rabbit?

Cobra NF on 3 Aug 2009 at 04:15
