Yeah, you'd think Commander Keen or somethin' like that'd be more reasonable. Oh well.

If you start with Mario characters, it would make more sense sticking to them. Otherwise, it would be something like:
Former Person (Doom)
MS-DOS Icon
Some Quake Wierdo
Vorticon (CK1)
Jazz Jackrabbit (only JJ1/Holiday Hare '94/'95)
Worm (Worms/Liero)
Mario
Commander Keen
Wolfenstien Machine Gun Guy
Donkey Kong
Pacman

etc.- It wouldn't make sense!

Homz: So you deny the obvious superiority of Mario in contrast to other hero's? No, I wasn't indicating anything nasty by "sexy" (donít take it the wrong way) just his natural charisma, smoothness, and his way with ladies... got a problem with that?

Yeah, think about it. Pretty much every venture of his has to do with rescuing a chick from this dino dude in a castle. You know he gets laid nightly, unless that damned idiot princess gets captured again.

Sorry, Dogbreath, I read your comment wrong. I really like Mario, and I think the Mario post count system is great. Technically, though, the expression

is a better way of expressing your opinion than using the word sexy.

Da_Goat's comment was on the off-color side. He seems to imply with his statement that Mario is morally loose. Au contraire! He has flamed Mario. We must avenge Mario's honor.

Specifically to DG: How cynical you can be at times, in contrast to you being nice(for lack of a better word) all the rest of the time, suprises me.[/quote]

Uh, that's usually the meaning of the word when you (meaning me and other males) refer to a guy as "sexy".

So you refer to guys as being sexy! Therefore, if you question my vantage point to call men sexy, you are being sexist!!!!! AIIIIIEE!!!!! DIEEEEE!!!!!!!!
