Sure, Smash Bros. is a game about watching a bunch of colorful characters duke it out. But it's also about arguing over which character is best.

I'm not a Smash die-hard like some of our staff members, but I've been having a hell of a good time with the new 3DS version of Super Smash Bros. I haven't unlocked much yet, but I already feel a bit spoiled for choice when it comes to which character I'll play.

Of course, the first thing I started wondering after I began playing was: Which character does everyone choose as their main?


I made a poll:

This should be interesting.

I actually hate the concept of "maining" a character in a fighting game, unless you are prepping for competition. I remember we had a summer worker from America come to Tokyo a couple years ago, and on a whim, we decided to play Super Smash Bros Melee on the GameCube. Right of the bat, this summer worker yelled out, "ROY IS MINE! He's my main." My Japanese colleagues and I got worried and were very weirded out by the response. Despite, we agreed and let him play Roy the whole time (No one else wanted to play Roy after that scenario).

After that, that summer worker proceeded to lose every single match of the night, and the more he lost, the more heated he got. Since this behavior is bizarre in Japan, I took him aside and tried to calm him down, only to find out he would lose his shit even more.

I know this story is a little over-explained, but the rest of us didn't care about winning or losing. We just wanted to play and have fun, and that's exactly what a game like Smash Bros should be about; having fun! Who cares about mains? Who cares about winning? Just get in there, pick whoever you want, and Smash it out!

Oh, and I literally "main" the whole roster. I love all the characters!
