Wiiloveit.com: Is Super Smash Bros. Obsolete?

"A few exceptions aside, I typically do not fancy fighting games. But after all these years, Super Smash Bros. is one fighter I still feel comfortable playing. While other gamers have since moved on from the allegedly dated nature of the original, why do I continue coming back to it?" -- Wiiloveit.com (Retro, Super Smash Bros., Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Wii)

No.

Smash Melee rocked. Unfortunately Brawl sucked giant monkey balls.
Edit: my reasoning is this; I was dominant among my friends at the original and Melee. When Brawl came out one of my buds could beat me with Kid Icarus by tapping A over and over. It was the MOST LAME thing ever. And smash balls made it unfair as many characters had an advantage in chasing them. It's like killstreaks in modern warfare, u only like em if YOU'RE the one getting them :( to further defend myself, I love smash its my favorite fighting game of all time. I hope they balance it and make it fun again.

Brawl wasn't as good as melee imo, but it definitively didn't suck

something that sells 15+ million units worldwide and scored very high isnt obsolete.

It did't sell 15 million worldwide(unless maybe you count the entire series which would probably be over 20 million sold.) Lastly, the new one better be more like melee(faster and less noob friendly)

actually it did

If you read the article, you'd know that I was referring to the original, not the series at large.

Smash Brothers
Since the N64 has been a breath of fresh air in the fighting game genre. It is classic arcade gameplay at its finest. Easy to Learn but hard to master, simple yet with depth. It is no wonder I am still playing the hell out of this game 3 years later.

And I loved the original, Melee..wasn't much of a fan, Brawl to me is the best entry into the series. And I am hoping they improve the formula even more for the next iteration.

Fighting games post SNES Have struggled to capture that mainstream appeal. Brawl is the best selling fighting game ever. Selling upwards of 10 million copies on a single platform, you can't do that if you are 'obsolete'

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm happy to hear someone else finds the original still has some depth. Some nowadays feel it has become flat or made obsolete since Melee & Brawl came out (which is what I was questioning in my article), but obviously I disagree.
