Because they have a very narrow definition of what a "fighting game" is supposed to be, thus comfortably limiting themselves to a small number of games they can readily recognize.

Similar to debates over previous games (ex: Is Mass Effect an RPG or a third-person shooter?)

I don't understand it either. Almost every definition of a fighting game is present yet people claim its not. Is it because you can play oy 4-1, items?

Even if it wasn't, why would it matter? It's still an awesome series, regardless of what trolls say.

Why do you automatically assume that this topic title is correct? You just go straight on speculating and grasping for answers.

I have never met a single person online or offline who has ever thought that SSB was not a fighter. There might be a few out there, but its really not many.

It is a fighting game, but it can also be a party game.
