What's your point?

Because from where I stand, all I see is an insufferable fanboy that implies something is wrong with all these Sony and Microsoft games just because they aren't as wanted as Smash Bros.

Please, please, PLEASE tell me I'm dead wrong. You don't have more bubbles, but if you prove me wrong in a PM, I'll happily post it here in your behalf.

KH 2.5 is not a next gen game but yeah, its my most wanted game this year :)

"Sony and Microsoft, with all their new "

Their you say?
I only see
The Order: 1886
Sunset Overdrive

All thers ain't theirs. KH2.5 isn't new.

LOL The main reason I got a Wii U was for Super Smash bros. that game will last me for years.
LoaMcLoa  +   471d ago
I'm getting a 3DS just for this game

I've pretty much played Brawl atleast 1-3 times a week with my siblings since it came out

That was 6 years ago

If this is your first foray into the 3ds, might I recommend; Fire Emblem, Mario 3d, resident evil revelations, gta:Chinatown wars...hell I could go on and on.

I'm still playing Melee 13 years later. I'm actually going over to a friend's house a little later to play some Melee.
truechainz  +   470d ago
yeah Smash always has staying power. Makes it a no brainer buying it and whatever console it is on since I know I will be playing it for years to come.

If SSB generates so much anticipation, I can't wait for the Zelda U reveal.
deafdani  +   471d ago
Zelda U was already revealed at E3 this year, look it up in Youtube.

I would call that a "world teaser" and "short feature trailer" combination, at best.
The real reveal will probably hold much more than that.
Music being used in the game, introductions of other characters, some storyline elements, maybe even some gameplay from wherever you start the adventure after the main trailer.

Well deserved.

I'm surprised actually. I don't see why people like this game and the ones in the past. I tried them when I was younger but it just wasn't for me. That's not why I'm surprised though, I fully understand that my taste in games isn't fact, just my opinion. I'm surprised because I thought it would be a multi platform game. So when you consider that smash bros is solely NIN, you really have to tip your hat for such a feat. The wii u was hurting for a while there but nin is coming with some pretty solid titles. I'm waiting for the new Zelda to pick a wii u up.

Super Smash Bros has always been a 1st party title by Nintendo. That's the reason you have Mario, Link, DK, and others in the game. You will never see a Super Smash game on any other consoles because Nintendo owns the IP and (most of) the characters in the game. I know a few people who are waiting for this game before picking up a Wii U. I'm really hoping it helps the Wii U out.

I think he meant that he was expecting the most wanted game to be a multi-plat title, not that he thought smash bros was multi-plat.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   471d ago
I'm not surprised in the least.
Smash is a juggernaut in the gaming industry; third parties everywhere scramble for the acclaim associated with seeing their characters fighting against Nintendo's greats.

I call hax call of dooty: black warfare 8 should have one

I enjoy Super Smash Bros., but it's nothing I absolutely have to have. It'll be fun for when friends come over, but I doubt I'll play it much, other than that. I'm more excited for Yoshi's Whooly World and Splatoon, to be honest. Got to play them at E3 and fell in love.
SpeedDemon  +   471d ago
It's definitely my most wanted game, but still surprised it got the award, I figured Evolve or Call of duty would had gotten it.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   471d ago
Maybe Germany is getting a bit fed up with shooters?XD
frezhblunts  +   465d ago
I hear your speed demon as great as smash is and it deserves an award. I myself have heard a lot from evolve and figured that would be the big one. Just to show that nintendo has some power out of the USA
Geekman  +   471d ago
Like the Wii U version. A little iffy on the 3DS version. I WANT to like it, but I guess it doesn't suit me.
