    1. Its a silly argument to have because it is a subjective label. It is, undoubtedly, different enough from what fighting games typically are and have been since their inception to consider it a sub-genre of some kind, but the label itself is neither a compliment nor an insult.

  1. Seems appropriate. Not only is Smash a mechanically sound fighting/party game that’s easy to learn to play. It’s also one of the biggest (if not the biggest) crossover ever. The charm of the game alone can carry it past most other fighters.

    1. This is kind of a ridiculous complaint to make about a fighting game. This is like criticizing Chess for being repetitive. A fighting game is a competitive format. Knowing all the moves of all the characters is only the *starting point* of the game.
