I was going to say Pit, 8th Gen, but then I realize from looking at the OP that you are talking about the 7th Gen LOL.

So nevermind.

I honestly think the 7th Gen Software library was the worse outside of a small batch of games. But to each their own.

I say the 6th gen beats the 7th gen easily, and same goes for the 8th gen which also beats the 7th gen easily already.


Hate to say it, but Kid Icarus isnt a new IP. Its just an old IP Nintendo resurfaced from the 80's. I think Wii Fit, Wii Sports and Pikmin are like Nintendos newest IP's in a while.


Well Nintendo has come up with up to 10 new IPs for 3DS and coming up with up to 5 new IPs for Wii U:

I'll try to name some:

3DS:

Spirit Camera the Cursed Memior

Dillon's Rolling Western (the sequel out to)

Sakura Samurai Art if the Sword

Pushmo (sequel already out)

Ketzal's Corridor

Kersploosh!

Steel Diver

 

Wii U:

Bayonetta 2 & up

Yarn Yoshi

Nintendo Land

 

There are a bunch more 1st Party IPs that are new in the 8th gen.

I think Dillon might be most influential 8th Gen character maybe.

I dont play 3DS so I dont know any of those, but the Wii U titles arent new IPs. Dillon might be...but I dont know how many people he reached.

It's Mii. No contest, really.

I'd have voted if there was a box for FemShep, but there is only Commander Shepard. The female VO just had much more character compared to the male version and I don't want to vote for the male version half at all.



Well, the three most successful have been Nathan Drake, Commander Shepard and Marcus Fenix.

But Marcus Fenix has the personality of a brick wall and even less likeability, and Shepard can't really be considered an influential character because he isn't a character at all. He is of indeterminate race and gender, and makes no decisions at all other than those you tell him to make.

That leaves Nathan Drake, who is a hugely popular, very charming and surprisingly deep character who can hopefully be fleshed out further in future games.

Plus you counted the new version of Batman as new, so you have to do the same for the new version of Pit from Kid Icarus Uprising.

But don't worry because it's 8th Gen, and you are talking about 7th Gen instead.

You could say Nathan Drake as it affected the way Tomb Raider plays but i don't think new characters haven't influenced too much overall



Xbox One, PS4 and Switch (+ Many Retro Consoles)

'When the people are being beaten with a stick, they are not much happier if it is called the people's stick'- Mikhail Bakunin

Prediction: Switch will sell better than Wii U Lifetime Sales by Jan 1st 2018

From the list, I liked John Marston the best.....solid character. Influential? I don't think I would call any that influential.....maybe Shepard or Drake.

Fem shep is commander shepard. Femshep is just an alternate name gamers created to separate the sex, its not real. If you were in the marines and was to address the female version of shepard you would state her name the same exact way you in which you would the male.



Drake takes the cake

The male version is dumb because the VO has no soul, therefore I refuse to vote is all I'm saying.
