    When you think of Nintendo, what are five game characters that you think of besides Mario?

    Dont list more than one Character per game

    Mine are:
    [*]Bulbasaur[*]Link[*]Luigi[*]Samus[*]Yellow Tetris Block...
    So, what faces pop into your head when you hear Nintendo mentioned?

    He's their mascot. They've intentionally made it so that Mario is the first thing you think of and when you hear Mario you think of Nintendo.

    I have 2 cousins, a Classmate and a friend who's a fan of some celebrity actor guy--all named Mario but whenever I hear their names you know what I say automatically and aloud--"Itsa, me Mario!" Thats what.

    Thats not a bad thing exactly but I really dont think he counts.

    Well even before he was their mascot, I would have picked Mario.

    I think that Zelda "screams" more than link does (in the eyes of social gamers). I dont know how many times i've had to correct people (in a none patronising sense) that Link is the main character in the Legend of Zelda games rather than Zelda is. If that makes any sense...

    Any character from Mario games.. Donkey Kong, Kirby..

    IMO, Although Zelda and Metroid are very bonded to the Nintendo name.. they're very peculiar, have more serious stories and stuff..

    James Bond. When I hear that name I think of GoldenEye 007 on N64

    EDIT: And Johanna Dark (even though there's PD: Zero on the 360 it still rings "Nintendo" in my mind)

    2. Link
    3. Pokemon
    4. Yoshi

    I didn't get a 5th 'cause it was at the top of my head without stopping to think. But I'd say Donkey Kong only because I started to read other people's posts.
