Reader Discussion: Who Is Your Favorite Video Game Mom?

by Brian Shea on May 10, 2015 at 06:52 AM

It's Mother's Day, and we want to celebrate all the hard working moms everywhere – both in and out of games. With that in mind, we want to know who your favorite mothers in video games are.

The first one that came to mind for me was your mother in Pokémon Red/Blue, but there are plenty of other examples throughout gaming. Crimson Viper from Street Fighter IV (pictured above) was also one of the first moms to pop in my head, as was Sarah from Lost Odyssey. If we want to go with classic moms, why not pick Ms. Pac-Man for her mothering of Pac-Man Jr. and Baby Pac-Man?
