Default Mario vs. Sonic vc. Crash

I am watching this show about the origins of video games and the characters that got them famous. Which of these three characters is your favorite:

Mario of the Mario Brothers (Nintendo)
Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega)
Crash Bandicoot (Sony)

Most of you are probably around the age bracket that grew up with video games. I got a Super Nintendo for my 3rd birthday, so that's who I am voting for! What do you think?

Fun fact:
The Original Nintendo Entertainment System was first released in Japan but was call "Famicom" for Family Computer but family was thought to be not as important in America so they went with "Nintendo Entertainment System".

Famicom:

For the super nintendo there is a code for Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 that lets you enable 1 button fatalities. It goes a little something like this: select, A, B, left, right, down, down, up

Mario is the ****. If I still had a Super Nintendo I'd play Super Mario all the time. Some classics are timeless.

Crash Bandicoot doesn't stand a chance, lol. I had NES, SNES (later on) and Genesis, so it's a tough call. Gotta give the love to Mario tho.

Mario!!!! I still have an NES and play Mario 3 all the time; sadly I don't have the gun or Duck Hunt any more .

I remember they used to have an adapter to fit the Famicom games into the NES, I used to play "Baby Mario" with it .

I don't have a personal affection to any of the characters, but the mario games are the best.

I wasn't alive when the original NES came out but I actually just recently bought one. It is a real one (not the new ones they make to play the old games) and I love it. Absolutely nothing wrong with it and I play it all the time. I just got the duck hunt game with the gun! I play it more then all my other systems. haha

Link and Zelda both first came out for the NES system, correct? Somehow I never had any of those games or have ever played them. I chose these three characters because they are the character that seemed to make the systems they were on, big. I might just have to add them on though. Donkey Kong was my second favorite series of games that came out.

Link> than any other video game character.

The whole reason I got a gamecube was to play Zelda.

EDIT: Ocarina of Time for N64 is the greatest game ever.

I voted Sonic because I used to love the show that came on saturday mornings, however, if you wanted to know my favorite VG character of all it would have to be Fox Mccloud from Starfox.
