One thing I'm worried about when Brawl comesout is the Tier list that people make. There was one for Melee and now that Brawl is out in Japan by the time Brawl is out here you know there is gonna be a tier list out for the game.
Me personally I don't think Tier lists are needed. why should you use a Character because a tier list made by People who are looking the Cheapest Character Possible just to have an unfair advantage against your Opponents.
And not only that if everyone followed it most Characters will end up never being used at all and it's sad really it kills the point of super smash bros. to play as your favorite Video game characters from the Nintendo world isn't that the reason they made it?
