Re: Super Smash Bros vs Traditional Fighters
Folks who knock Super Smash Bros. probably have a case of traditionalism. Like Mario Kart's introduction of usable items adding a whole new spin to racing games by granting you the opporunity to change the flow of the standings during the race, Smash does the same thing, albeit for a fighting game. And like MK, this gives Smash an interesting quirk that makes it standout and accessible to anyone regardless of their skill level.
I've played the series religiously since it debuted, but I only started to learn how to learn and use actual techniques when SSB3D / SSBU came out. As a result, I have fun playing it in its standard format (items, stages with hazards and aiming for KOs / stocks / coins / etc.) or in its universally accepted competitive format (no items, omega stages and stocks only).
