I thought Smash Bros was pretty worn out by the N64... can't understand why people enjoy playing the same game with a graphics update over and over. Personally don't think the formula able to support even the two sequels it got.


Each game is COMPLETELY different, hence why you have people who despise Brawl but love Melee.

I take it you haven't actually played them.


I owned the first two. Played the third a few times at other ppls houses. Same basic gameplay, some new moves and characters and stages don't change anything in a way significant to me. They most definitely aren't "COMPLETELY different." The caps don't make your argument.


To casual fans I can see your point, but to people who really dig into the series and analyze it like crazy, there's a myriad of differences to be found.

Better graphics, core gameplay changes, new characters (who offer different gameplay options), and a load of new levels don't change things?

Other than making an entirely new game, what would constitute a 'completely different' game?

Don't forget completely new physics, the addition of a new special attack in each game, theaddition of dodging, tripping, new game modes, bosses, etc.

I actually didn't say it should be completely different. He just took exception to me essentially saying I don't understand why people still enjoy playing the same game. I said the formula couldn't (i.e. wasn't worth) support two sequels, lol.

I guess my criticism could apply to the fighting game genre in general, which I don't enjoy at all anymore.

Smash Bros for console Nintendo equals Pokemon for Handheld Nintendo equals Halo for Microsoft


Smash Bros is a system seller

LOL, it's got a HUGE following and is present at all the major fighting game tournaments.


No it doesn't, because people are fighting games are busy playing fighting games, not party games.
