    Gambia, The
    Kirby belongs to Hal Laboratory, it's published by Nintendo.
    Lack of choices, there's WAY more Big N properties than that. Like Pikmin.

    So true. Also, most of these are just published by nintendo. They're not made inhouse.

    Even not being developed by Nintendo itself.. they're still Nintendo property [​IMG]

    Specially cause Intelligent Systems (Warioware, Advance Wars), Retro Studios (Metroid), HAL (Kirby, SSB), Game Freaks (Pokemon), etc.. make games exclusively for Nintendo platforms, like RARE used to do before the MS thing..

    For some reason, I seem to only remember Mario from childhood. I never played metroid for zelda until I got to North America. So Mario feels much more nostalgic for me.

    No matter what, Nintendo's biggest franchise definitely is Mario. He is Nintendo's mascot after all. You don't see Samus or Kirby sponsoring Nintendo.

    Mario rules the scene. Not that I'm a Mario fan, but I can make obvious conclusions.

    I added metroid as they are fficially nintendos 3rd biggest franchise according to sales several months ago.
    So I should kill off samus and addd pikmin or chibi robo or something made JUST by nintendo. May I remind you that
    50% of the mario branded games are made by external game developers.

    Kirby is a neuter. It was designed for children as a gateway "drug" of video games... and it works really well. I voted Mario. He saved the gaming industry.
