If video game historian was a career that would be my goal in life. I have spent a lot of my life studying various histories and so I am super familiar with sourcing, which is pretty essential for this site and just a good thing to do in general so you do not spread lies. I have a huge fascination with the old days and ips with Nintendo. There is so much potential for old franchises like Balloon Fight, Marvelous, Nazo no Murusame Jo and more to come back in the modern age. At least Smash celebrates those games! My focus for source gaming are the Dream articles and working on Project Omega. I hope you enjoy reading my work.

  1. When it comes to who we can reasonably expect next time around, I think you guys hit the nail on the head, especially Bomberman, a Dragon Quest rep, and the Capcom reps. As far as who else could be on the list of legacy characters my picks are Doomguy and Master Chief. I consider these characters to have lower chance of getting in than your honorable mentions, but they would definitely meet the criteria of the out of left field icon, similar to what we got with Snake and Cloud.

  2. One character that I would add to this list is Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes; while I don’t see him as the flagship Third Party rep for the next Smash (Bomberman would be my top choice here) he has both a strong history with Nintendo as well as cross-platform support, not to mention Goichi Suda’s friendship with Masahiro Sakurai. Nice to see Simon Belmont so high up on the list, he’s been my most wanted character since before Brawl.

    On another note, around the 10:30 mark I felt your argument against Snake’s inclusion became a bit cloudy- I can understand wanting to debunk the Konami argument but the explanation of “rotating third-party characters” seemed like a crack theory at best. I’d hope to see this point of view in another video with stronger context support; it felt more like a tangent here that could use some much-needed elaboration.

  3. Nice picks, i agree on Heihachi, Dragon warriors and all of the Capcom reps! on Konami part, i think that Simon should get in before Bomberman. also you forgot Jack Frost from Atlus and Ryu Hayabusa from Koei Tecmo
