Desturctoid recently tried arguing such a point. Sorry, but all those other examples they cite (well, most) don’t count because they don’t feature characters from many other games, all together.

With the lone exception being DreamMix TV, but at least kudos for bringing it up in the first place. Not enough people know about that game in which Optimus Prime beats up Solid Snake…
