Great read that was, loved D.O.N on the PS2. I reckon it mimicked the Smash style pretty good with a bit of uniqueness for the win condition... something All Stars seemed to have taken influence from.

Nintendo fans are very sensitive, they don't like games that resemble other games of theirs, epecially now since Nintendo is lagging behind in terms of system power. If Mario and Link aren't in it, it sucks. Such a sad mindstate really. Just like people that think Nintendo doesn't have good games because they have less system power.

As a Nintendo fan, I welcome Smash clones. It gives me a chance to play Smash, but with characters Nintendo wouldn't consider using. Yeah, there's always hacks (textures, movesets, music, and stages can all be modded with little effort on legacy Wii, but that still requires going out of your way for the experience)

If the game is horrid, the game is horrid. The reason Smash is the standard is because Smash is just a good game series.

I always considered these "party brawlers" as a subgenre of fighting games. I wouldn't mind seeing more games like them.

"epecially now since Nintendo is lagging behind in terms of system power." Even though they have the most powerful console available...
