I don't know what half of these words mean. I am going to be in way over my head when I begin building my PC.
I had a similar mentality when I was building my new PC last week. It's definitely an interesting project to undertake and it's not as difficult as it seems. You'll eventually learn what some of these terms mean and there's always people to help and criticize your choices.
At the beginning of the year, I would have said Bioshock Infinite would likely run away with the most GOTY awards, but if The Last of Us, Watch_Dogs and GTAV are as good as the hype surrounding those games, it could be a free-for-all.
And hey, there could even be a few indie darkhorses in the mix. Hell, even something like Super Mario 3D World or Rayman Legends could be mentioned in the conversation.
While I always prefer as many characters as possible in Smash Bros., I have no problem trimming the roster as long as they eliminate some unnecessary clones like Toon Link and Wolf. If they cut it down to 30-32, that's enough variety to satisfy most Smash Bros. fans, I believe.
Also, Snake was a cool idea and all, but not really a character that's synonymous with Nintendo. I would cut him before anybody else. Mega Man, on the other hand, seems like a more appropriate fit, especially old-school Mega Man.
