Nintendo mastermind Shigeru Miyamoto, and the guy who created Luigi in the first place, recently said that the Year of Luigi ends on March 18. Surely, a sad day for Italian little brothers (like me) everywhere.

Of course, that means that it’s time for another video game icon to get a little recognition. So, who do you think should get a whole year dedicated to them? Maybe it’s time for the Year of Samus? Hell, why not a non-Nintendo character. I’d kill for a Year of Protoman.

We want you to offer your own suggestion in an article for GamesBeat Unfiltered, our community-focused site where all our readers can publish their own writing. If you haven’t written for us before, just head over to our “about” page. It’ll tell you how to make your own account and submit stories. Our editors will select your best stories, edit them, and put them on GamesBeat’s front page.

Have fun, everyone! I’m personally pulling for the Year of Sully.
