Earthworm Jim for me, I adore Guybrush Threepwood but I wouldn't really class him as a mascot

Dunno if I'd classify her as a mascot (although she was closely associated with PlayStation in the nineties), but Lady Lara Croft is the winner:

"All these years you looked back on that day, drunk on the memory of its perfection. How shiny her lips - how instant your connection."

I used the term 'mascot' somewhat loosely for some

Take Lara, maybe not an official mascot, but she was essentially the face of the PS back in the day.

Again Guybrush wasn't really a mascot sure. But he was one of the top regular faces for Amiga and PC gaming at one point.

Most choices were at one point everywhere to be seen, for a specific machine. Others were simply well known mascot failures/attempts.

I'd say Crash Bandicoot was more of a PS1 mascot than Lara. Though I love Lara, too!
