Also, LMAO @ games like Super Princess Peach not being mentioned to conveniently railroad the argument. Ya know, the game where the Princess saves Mario?
Yeah, except she doesn't get to shoot fireballs out of her hands like a boss. Instead, she gets to use her emotions to get through the game, such as depression, joy, anger. That's not sexist at all.
I no rite! Men don't have emotions! Dey don't get angry, sad or joyful! They're devoid of feelings and monsters!11!1!1!1
I don't know what you're trying to say exactly, so let me put it this way:
If these were the powers that Mario had and was known for, do you really think people would take him seriously? Do you think Mario would be as popular as it is now?

"If these were the powers that Mario had and was known for, do you really think people would take him seriously?"
Mario was an overweight plumber who stomped on sentient mushrooms and was portrayed in popular media by an aging wrestler and a porn star. And when Nintendo gave him an official voice they made him sound like a castrated pasta chef.
I don't think giving him the channel to power his emotions would have made all that much of a difference when it comes to "being taken seriously".

Oh, I only read the first page (50 posts), or skimmed it rather since I read all this entire debate on the Wii U forum. My bad, didn't realize you were here too! :) --- I don't see Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony.
