Yeah we've all discussed our favorite character to death. You play as character x because of reason y and blah blah blah. But which characters do you think look the coolest? Which ones do you look at in their original games and then turn to their Brawl version and go "HOLEESHIT" about? Same goes for stages: perhaps you hate playing on a certain stage, but which one do you like the look of the most?
EDIT: As an example, I HATE playing as Pokemon Trainer simply because I SUCK with him. But he has amazing form. I love the concept and the way it was executed. And all three Pokemon look beautiful. Especially Charizard. Stage-wise, I can't stand...well actually the only stage I don't like is Electroplankton and Final Destination and both of those have boring designs in my opinion. So we'll go with the Melee stage Rainbow Cruise. Beautiful and a cool concept that brings back a lot of memories, but I HATE playing on it.
