A Fascinating Look At The World's Best Super Smash Bros. Players

You've gotta watch this Super Smash Bros. Melee documentary that follows some of the top players in the scene -- it's quite good. Accessible, too: you don't need to be a fox-only no-items final destination type player to enjoy it; they break the game down wonderfully.

And as always, I continue to be amazed at how Smash players turned a party game into a competitive game.

Remember to watch the other parts of the documentary too, if you have the time:

    And as always, I continue to be amazed at how Smash players turned a party game into a competitive game.

    It's because it's not strictly a party game. It can be seen that way, but there's actually a deceptive amount of depth to it, and it was deliberately designed that way.

      You could say the same of any game, realistically.. Any AAA class game has so many mechanics..

      Next minute; "Mario party has a lot of depth to it because there's so many minigames to master".

      No.. Just no.

        Erh, well no, you couldn't. Quantity is not depth, for one.

        I don't think you really understand what I mean by "depth" in a fighting game...

        Yeah, quantity is not necessarily equal to depth.
        I think its also important to note that complexity is'nt always a good measure of depth either.
        You know, before someone goes there too :p

        You're right that it isn't particularly deep, but you might be surprised who the target market is (less so for the Wii Party games). The main demographic of players are the hardcore Nintendo fans; roughly the same ones who kept the Gamecube afloat.

    That was well worth the watch, thanks for sharing this :D
