Luigi is my favorite video game character. He has personality to spare and even though he might be afraid of pretty much everything that doesn't stop him from saving the day. Plus he is a ghost-busting plumber!

Some of these reasons aren't good.

I prefer Luigi to Mario, but Link and Samus are pretty cool too.

Luigi, Mario and Link really aren't characters, though. They're player-avatars, blank-slates, hell, Samus falls into the category, too, for most games--save that one Metroid game everyone hated.

Being the younger brother, I was always forced to play as Luigi, he is still my favorite.

Being an only child (at the time of the NES), I always found the idea of playing as Luigi interesting. So much so that I'd put it on 2 player, and kill off Mario so I could play as Luigi. I know... I had serious issues as a kid. You do stupid stuff like that when there's no one to play with.

10 reasons why he's not would be an easier deduction.

I wish I would have gotten Luigi's Mansion when I had a GC.

Dont worry. You didnt miss much.

Even though it was a fun and original game, i believe its campaign only lasts 8-10 hours or so.

I remember i bought this game as a kid just before i went to visit my grandparents.
Of course i brought the game and my gamecube with me to play during the otherwise boring visit :p

But then to my disappointment, i finished the game the same night i first popped the tiny disc in my GC.

Like most games i finished, i wanted to trade it in, especially since it still had the full trade in value, since it was just a day after purchase, (cause hey, getting all the games you want isn't easy when ur just a kid :p)

but i was 100 miles away from home, 100 miles away from the gameshop i bought it. :p
Luckily the guy at the gamestore still let me trade it :D

And they all lived happily ever after
