but in my roster, Pokémon and Zelda would have 7 characters each and Fire Emblem would be down to 5, so it doesn't bother me too much.
Yea that is where the count should be. Fire Emblem shouldn't have more weight than Zelda and Pokemon even though I don't care about those series. Weight should be on most successful franchises. Now if anyone ever suggested taking Falco out. I'd shit a brick.
