Why do people dismiss PS1 characters as wasted slots?

I never knew who they were until This game came out..so yeah..not everyone on the roster is an allstar..more like unknown stars.


I didn't recognize a chunk of Super Smash Bros.' lineup when that game was first released either, so I guess Kirby and Samus were wasted slots.


How is this even possible?

There should be an equal spread of PS1, 2 and 3 characters.
Just because some characters aren't relevant anymore does not mean they should not be in the game.

My first console was a PlayStation. Played SSB at a friend's house and the game introduced me to those characters. Kirby has been my main ever since.

Don't pretend you knew everyone there, unless you just mean the part about Samus and Kirby who had incredibly successful games. But it's a good way to show, just because you don't know someone doesn't mean they aren't valuable.

Anyway, I had no idea who ones like Ike and Marth were, due to the fact they were from a not-so-popular GBA game never released in North America (until after SMB). You think PS All-Stars picks obscure characters? Think again. Also Captain Falcon, who had a popular game but was easily unrecognizable due to the fact it was a racing game where you see him much much less than say, Sweet Tooth.

Because youre most likely 11 or 12. If you dont know who Sir Dan or even Parappa is then you must not have owned a PS one. Those games were very popular then and are great representatives of that era.

I actually knew about Parappa before this game came out, I'm glad he's in it.

So yeah, I'm pretty glad that there are PS1 reps in this game.

I didn't know about Samus or Captain Falcon, and definitely not Ness, when i first played ssb.
Marth and Roy was also really surprising since Fire Emblem wasn't released internationally at the time of ssbm release.

im 15, the only character i didnt know was sir dan, even though ive heard of medieval (i think thats the name)

also, the only character i see as a wasted "slot" is evil cole. i even made a topic about it.
Parappa is awesome, and i actually saw him through pewdiepies youtube channel.
i heard of ape escape before
Toro, ive seen him plenty of times.
I just didnt know sir dan beforehand.

Wait, really?

All I've been hearing is that the newer characters don't deserve their slots, and this should be PS1 All-Stars.

IE stuff like Sackboy, Kratos and Drake don't deserve their slots over Crash, Spyro, Dart etc.

Sackboy main here.

I hate Pewdiepie
He's just a screaming little punk who gets views from being an annoying hipster and knowing how to play the average Youtube viewer like a bongo. I was going to add attention whore, so add that I guess. But not very much, those reply girls are worse.

Though even with that, I'm glad he's there.
He gains awareness for ones like Parappa.
