Anyone here play it?

I've been playing these games on and off since N64 and always liked them a decent amount. A few years ago my co-workers and I got a Switch that we just leave at work and we play during our lunch break or throughout the day when we have nothing else to do (your tax dollars at work, sorry). At this point we've got a few thousand hours of gameplay each lol. I think the little notification thing for 10,000 matches played dinged for us a few years ago at this point 😅. We all still play pretty regularly as it just makes for some good casual fun or some super sweaty, try-hard non-sense for a few hours.

I played a looooooot in the n64 and melee days, but I've had a hard time giving a shit about the later games tbh. I have the newer one on switch but I just can't get into it.

Melee is still the best imo

I remember as a kid everyone always wanted to play Smash Bros. and I fucking hated that game. Still do.

As far as playing these games in a screwing-around way, I think the latest one is the best, the gamecube one is second, and the N64 one is third. I miss the screw attack being comically overpowered in that game. None of us really knew how to play it other than just cheesing each other and not being good enough to counter it (ex just ground pounding with donkey kong or lightning with pikachu over and over and over again in an inconvenient location). Like, we didn't even know about "smash" moves in the N64 one. Come to think of it, I haven't played that game since the gamecube version came out, so I don't even know if it had one.

I think every version of this game we ever played much we'd turn off the home run bat cause it was stupid.

I think I played the wii version like twice, and the wii-u version about three times. They seemed like more of the same from the gamecube version! They were probably fine.

I like them. I'm not a die hard fan but the game itself is satisfying to play, it's so freeform I think id lose my mind trying to play it competitively. Iirc I bought ultimate for the switch when they added the piranha plant guy, silly dude haha.

I don't think I've played a game of Smash with items on in maybe 6 or 7 years. I used to get slapped around by everyone in these games, then only ever played against my bro who was a top competitive player for a while. Since then I beat everybody who isn't a competitive player.
