I expected a pretty diverse split on whom the favorite Smasher would be, but I didn't expect to see so many votes considering the usual voter turnout. Maybe I need to make future poll questions less abstract and more definitive. Link is the winner here with Fox McCloud, Samus Aran, and Mario holding their own as well. I tend to be a Mario man, but I also like to play as Link and Samus. I find that I prefer the characters with whom I have a nostalgic bond. I don't necessarily play Smash games to win, but to watch the chaos unfold with my favorite performers as the stars.
Continuing on with the same concept, this week's question is all about the newcomers to the Nintendo GameCube's Super Smash Bros. Melee. Which of the roster additions is your favorite to play as? Somewhere down the line when it's safe to discuss the hidden Super Smash Bros. Brawl characters without spoiling things for everyone I'm sure there'll be a poll about the new Brawl challengers, but for today let us remain rooted in 2001. So who's it going to be? Princess Peach? Ice Climbers? Marth? You know the drill.
