Super Smash Bros. Melee EVO Stream Breaks Viewership Records

The EVO stream for Super Smash Bros. Melee has not only broken records for EVO, it is now the most watched fighting game in history. (EVO 2013, GameCube, Super Smash Bros. Melee)

Wow and I don't mean that in a good way. It not even a serious fighting game and it was the most watch. Are you serious.

A LOT of people take Smash Bros. very seriously. Don't know why it doesn't qualify as a serious one to you. I'd consider it one, this coming from a huge fighting game aficionado.

It doesn't matter if they take it seriously. It not a serious fighting game. These people are trying to make it into something it not. That what I don't like about this situation. It just doesn't belong at evo.

Smash is not in the same league as street fighter,umvc3,persona arena, kof13 and tekken tag 2. Those games require skill and it shows. I was just watching the smash stream and it honestly didn't look like it require much skill. It just didn't belong there.

@Mika I went to a smash bros melee tournament recently, and let me tell you, you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. I've been playing the series consistently since the first one, and some of the skill I saw at that tournament blew me away. I saw tricks done that I had never even thought of, and the guy who won was so far above my level I could barely touch him. The way some people at that tournament played was incredible.

Smash bros is easy to learn, but difficult to master. It is a serious fighting game.

exfatal  +   403d ago

It must be serious enough for EVO to add it to the lineup.

First time ever seeing someone throw a hissy fit over something that has little effect on their life.
exfatal  +   403d ago
really your first time? havent you seen Mika's other comments? lol

On topic though, greatly enjoyed this years evo. Really wanted jiggly or IC to win though, hate them damn space animals :(
JasonXE  +   403d ago
But UMVC3 is broken as hell. You think UMVC3 is a legit fighter but Smash isn't?

Lol, ok.
Dannycr  +   403d ago
I dare you to play with a pro smash player and say the same thing. You clearly don't know what you are talking about.

Pro players always make everything look easy. People who really know how hard it is to pull something off, are the ones who understands the game better. Otherwise, they end up saying exactly the same thing you just said.

Nobody talks bad about our beloved Smash Bros, nobody!!!!
M-M  +   403d ago
Lmao Mika going full force.
Lionalliance  +   403d ago
I'm sorry, but you're pathetic : /
Gamesgbkiller  +   403d ago
Now I know why always your comments are disliked :\
Smashbro29  +   403d ago
If it doesn't require skill why don't you show up to evo and win that big pot of money?
TriforceLightning  +   403d ago
This level of trolling is god-tier.
king_george  +   403d ago
ummmmm.... pretty sure smash bros is one of the top fighting games in like...well ever. what are you talking about mika?
AnimeAvenger  +   403d ago
Not even a serious fighting game? LOL

As a smash fan and someone who plays competitive, I am literally speechless.
akaihana86plus  +   403d ago
You "seriously" need to get some preparation H Mika, that behind might be burning like hell, right?, " a serious fighting game ", Lmao, no fighting game is supposed to be serious you silly head!.

Now, on topic, bravo to Nintendo, this really shows how Smash has tons of people who care about the franchise :)
jcnba28  +   403d ago
Wow, the jealousy is strong in this one lol

Pick up the controller then and show these guys that this is not a real fighting game. Show them that anyone can pick up the controller and beat them.
Lionalliance  +   403d ago
And Nintendo wanted to banned Smash all together lol
exfatal  +   403d ago
I know good thing they went back and changed there decision. or we woulda missed some great matches.
diepdiep  +   403d ago
Hopefully this kind of achievement would convince Nintendo that there should be some changes in their legal policies.
just-joe  +   403d ago
I guess Nintendo's plan worked all along. Just kidding, though I'm sure them wanting to ban it had something to do with it.
r21  +   403d ago
Sounds like a conspiracy that could be true though. Pretend to cancel, get people's attention, uncancel, more promotion for upcoming game O_o
Trago1337  +   403d ago
I think the highest it went was about 128k viewers. Really impressive for a game that's 12 years old. Shows how well it holds up.
HexxedAvenger  +   403d ago
wow! Didn't know Melee was still that relevant. I'm really happy for that. :)
SonyPS4  +   403d ago
Melee is my favorite of the series until something else tops it, but it's a very hard game to top IMO.
cyguration  +   403d ago
I prefer SSBB over SSBM but hot dang that grand finale was unbelievable. It deserved the viewership it received.

The people chanting Nintendo and Smash Bros at the event gave me goosebumps. That was unbelievably legit.

LOL @ Xbox getting booed out of EVO
WeAreLegion  +   403d ago
If Nintendo is going to take the Brawl route and pander to the casual audience with SSB4, that's fine. I just hope we get a "Tournament Edition" or something with the same fine-tuned mechanics and gameplay as Melee.
