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.
