You're popular ... you bring in loads of money ... you're an icon ... But then ... it all comes crashing down! The game heroes in this Top 5 used to be awesome but somehow managed to lose their glory. Get ready for the five most washed up game heroes ever.

5. Mega Man

Remember when Mega Man used to be cool? Those games on the N.E.S took weeks to beat and it felt amazing when you finally did it. Unfortunately the series has been in steady decline ever since. Recent Mega Man games have been cancelled and the little fellow couldn't even get in Marvel versus Capcom 3. It seems there's no love left for the blue bomber...

4. The Prince

The Prince from Prince of Persia had no problem making the jump from 2D to 3D. He just happened to get cock blocked by this guy... Ubisoft started the Assassin's Creed series just when popularity of the Prince of Persia games began to taper off. With the immense success of AC it's unlikely the Prince will return any time soon.

3. Pac-Man

Pac-Man used to be huge boss. The little yellow guy had a TV show ... a catchy '80s song ... and starred in one of the most iconic games ever created. This all changed when he tried to find his place in the modern world. Where other game characters flourished in 3D, Pac-Man could never get used to life outside his 2D maze...

2. Duke Nukem

Duke Nukem used to be awesome but now he just sucks balls. His personality, dated one-liners and misogyny makes him appear sad and pathetic in 2012. The Duke reminds us of Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite ... This game hero is stuck in the past and can't get with the times like everyone else.

1. Sonic

Sonic is the Cuba Gooding Jr. of videogames. Everybody loved him in the 90's but now he can't even be considered an A-list game hero anymore. Sonic went from being an awesome character to a washed up has-been thanks to some truly awful games. It won't be long before the blue hedgehog pulls a Max Payne and starts to numb his pain with booze, drugs and cigarettes. We hope he bounces back one day ... cause Sonic, you are all right!
