smash (and PASBR by extension), are not fighting games. they are party games. they are beat 'em ups.


Exactly.

These are not fighting games.

Party game is not a gameplay genre. Mario kart is a party game but its genre is racing game. Guitar hero is a party game, its genre is music/rhythm game. Smash and PSABR are party games, but that doesn't change the fact that their genre is fighting game.

Whether they're meant to be played seriously or not, whether the game is tournament worthy or not, and whether the game is good or not are all 100% irrelevant as far as what genre it is.

I don't even know why I posted this though. Let's be real. Anyone who is saying psa or smash aren't fighting games isn't saying that out of concern for correctly categorizing games. They're all either trolls or just smug elitist fanboys trying to put down smash or psa.


One of the few people not making nonsensical arguments in this thread.

Have you guys even looked at some of the games that GameFAQS considers a fighting game? .hack? Acceleration of Suguri? Vitual Rabbit Missions?

This game along with SSB are not traditional arcade fighting games, which was what people usually mean when talking about a fighting game.


Not being a traditional fighter doesn't stop it from being a fighter though, zam. Mario Kart and Crash Team Racing aren't traditional racing games but no one argues that they aren't indeed racing games.
I dont get why so many people have a problem with Smash type games being fighters. They aren't traditional fighters but that doesnt make them not fighters. :/


They dont have a problem with smash type games being called a fighting game. They just dont want smash type games to be lumped together with their traditional fighters. FGC people want a way to categorize the type of game they enjoy. Its a lot easier to say "fighting game" than "traditional arcade fighting game", and since traditional arcade fighting games like SF and Tekken have a bigger player base, "fighting game" genereally means "traditional arcade fighting game" and not whatever you consider smash type games to be.

Then just call it a party fighter, zam. It's much easier than all these inane arguments.
