Did people really want Little Mac & Isaac during the pre-Melee days?

I hear a lot of people wanted these characters during Melee. Despite Isaac being too recent. But, I say Little Mac should have been considered instead of Urban Champion Fighter while deciding who to add to rep the NES era. Ice Climbers is a good choice, but Little Mac would have been another good choice to add. But seeing how the mechanics were, I can honestly see Little Mac being the same how he is in Smash 4 but a little less. I can see him ranking in between #5-#10 and Isaac being middle tier, like in between Link & Donkey Kong.

I wanted Isaac in Brawl and I was thrilled he was an AT. Now that Little Mac got promoted, it gives me far greater hope for Isaac being playable.

I didn't think about it. I was one of those people who thought, "Well it's a sequel coming, so it'll probably be better than what I was playing before." Although I did have a friend who was hoping for Pit in Melee.

Something to keep in mind is that Golden Sun was released only a month before Melee.

As for Little Mac, I really wasn't much of a fan of Punch-out when I was younger, but I knew of him, and wouldn't have had any problem with his inclusion earlier.

Also, Golden Sun 1 came out in 2001 so that's not likely. I was just a preteen barely discovering the internet then.

Little Mac would have been perfect in Melee.

He's perfect now too though, imo. I'm very biased because he was the only requested character I had. And I very badly wanted him to be playable.

I don't know about pre-Melee, but during pre-Brawl, tons of people requested Isaac.
