I might have to try it if it goes on sale. Most reviews I read were not too kind.

I played a ton of the arcade, NES and SMS versions of DD1, and the arcade and NES versions of DD2, but very little after that, as Technos kinda mucked with things in the wrong way after 2.

Just realized how few games get me interested in their characters
Good chance I forgot someone though

10. Prinnies (Disgaea series)
9. Ghandi (Civilization series)
8. Mac (SSX(original) and SSX Tricky)
7. Minsc and Boo (Baldur's Gate)
6. Mass Effect Characters (I have no particular affinity for any one but enjoy their depth)
5. Portal Characters (otherwise the main four would be on my list)
4. Link (Legend of Zelda series)
3. Lilith (Borderlands and Borderlands 2 to a lesser extent)
2. Jigglypuff (Super Smash Bros (only the first))
1. Gaige and D374-TP (Borderlands 2)

Try the demo. I've played it to death.

Rampage on SMS was also a really good conversion.

My first game for the NES was Adventure Island, as I was going through a major Wonder Boy arcade addiction at the time.

A month and sixty hard-earned dollars later, I finally wised up and bought SMB2. MUCH better game. Still regard Adventure Island as my worst purchase, even though..damn I still love it. Wonder Boy in Monster Land as well. Never liked the Adventure Island sequels, though. Wonder Boy over Master Higgins, every time.

In all fairness, it's not like characters from the 8 bit era and earlier had many characters with any depth at all.

I'm not sure exactly what the story behind it was but I always loved how much of a blatant rip off Adventure Island was, you'd never see that today on a console

This.

I could of listed characters that I liked when I was a kid such as: Mega Man, The Battletoads, Mr. K in Renegade, and Star Man from Pro Wrestling..but they really didn't do much for me personality wise seeing that all they did was shoot or attack.

For sure. The industry is 1000x bigger than it was in the early 90s so you definitely can't get away with that these days.

Sure when you compare them to more recent characters, it's clear who the more interesting ones were. However, in the moment of the early/mid 90s, I'd say they were equally as iconic.

@RandV I believe Hudson created Wonder Boy for Sega and had the option to port the game but without the Wonder Boy character, so it was an amicable settlement. Also somethign that wouldn't fly in today's market.

Not exactly, but other than the NHL series it's pretty much the only thing I've played in the past five years.
