    And then Guild comes in and trashes all of the Melee fans.

    Neither. I'm simply not a fighting game fan, Smash Bros being no exception. I tried to like it, but it's all the same button mashing mess (anyone who complains about me using the term button mashing clearly needs to get out more ;)). Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. It's all luck.

    Except it's not, SSB is very simple, so button-mashing would actually make you more likely to lose because of the simplicity. And if you don't like it, why'd you post here?

    brawl for characters, melee for controls.

    god, i have no idea how they could fuck up the controls like that, when they had them perfect in melee

    Melee is better for competitive playing.

    Brawl is more fun in parties.

    Just because I didn't enjoy something means I'm not allowed to express an opinion?

    I never said you weren't, it was just a simple question.

    No you didn't. He asked why you posted, and your response was pretty much 'wai not?'.


    You do realize you can customize your controls, and that you can use almost any controller you like? If you wanted to, just plug in a GC controller and change the control scheme if it was that different to Melee.

    On-topic: Haven't played much of Melee, so I'm not really used to how it handles. So I prefer Brawl.

    I prefer Melee for Mewtwo, the stages, and the missions (God do I miss those), but I prefer Brawl for the additions, the music, and most of all: The Hacks.

    So? Without criticism, nothing can improve. Effectively, you guys are setting up a "club" with a sign out front that says "haters not allowed!!" And yet, I'm not a hater! I'm not sitting here, raging about people liking it because I didn't. I have not ONCE condemned someone for enjoying Smash Bros. I have given a reason why I didn't like them, and yet I'm told to *bleep* off. Great conversation we're having here. Who's the hater here?

    Melee brings back nostalgia of when i had a gamecube, my first home console.

    So I would go with melee.

    thats not what i meant, theres a clear difference if you play melee and brawl with gc controller

    in brawl, characters movement is is not as exactly executed as it was in melee. its kinda sluggish, to put it into a word. jumps arent as precise and running is different too


    also @benrk:
    the question was really simply, what do you prefer, brawl or melee and why?
    you not being able to actually answer that question kinda does make your opinion uninteresting in this special thread.
    obviously you can have your opinion and you can voice it, but in this topic with this question, it has no value as it does not answer the question asked.
    your argument that, without criticism, nothing can improve, is invalid, as there is nothing to improve here, though i do know what you mean.

    noone is setting up a club where you arent allowed in, hater or not hater, but the topic just does not want your opinion

    thats like when someone asks a clear yes / no question and people answer with "maybe". great, you can say maybe, but its not answering the question.

    The thing is that it's more realistic. Rather than jumping immediately like they did in Melee, they go through the motions, and thus the player has to wait for the animations before the character actually jumps.

    If they did that they'd be breaking several canons.

    if they want to be realistic, characters should not be able to even jump as high as their actual height,

    I had some really intense matches with friend on Melee.

    Mostly in Brawl the matches are clusterfuck Free for Alls.

    Melee is better imo in terms of combat and balance. Brawl was dumbed down.
