Unless you meant his old one from Brawl and Smash 4
It's always been terrible yes but that's not what we're saying the sorta 'Melee is God anyone who disagrees is factually wrong Excetra, excetra' generally got more tame as the years went on but that sort of fan vitriol is surely gonna be reawoken with a SSBU skin when in the next game when they're gonna have to cut so many characters and with whatever other changes they'll make.The Smash fanbase has always been terrible, I don't see any change since the Melee days.
If you think Smash fans are that rational you don't know smash fansI'd like to believe no one expects smash 6 to be anywhere near what ultimate has given us, there's just no way they'll be able to do this again, and it's probably unlikely that they can just pull a "hey come join the series again everyone" like they did after smash 4.
TBH I don't think it'll be like Smash 4 I feel it'll be more like Brawl in a sense, these things usually come in threes (stay with me)Like, I guess my unpopular opinion will be that smash 6 is going to have to change the core gameplay in someway (possibly with dumb gimmicks or something) to make the series fresh for next time, otherwise the disappointment of so much lost content will be like smash 4's but in triplicate. On the plus side, if they don't have to spend all their time doing an admittedly good job of balancing 80 fighters, maybe we can get a really cool adventure mode again.
No, you're right, I don't really deal with the genuinely gross part of the fandom, so I tend to assume everyone is just being ironic when they spam about Waluigi and Goku and that people know what's actually likely for the series. I want to say it's a small minority that are the outspokenly toxic fans, but that minority is probably bigger than I realize.If you think Smash fans are that rational you don't know smash fans
That's an interesting way to see it, I always thought of it in a different way that kind of comes to the same conclusions. Either we both overthink this, or maybe neither of us do:TBH I don't think it'll be like Smash 4 I feel it'll be more like Brawl in a sense, these things usually come in threes (stay with me)
You have the game that's great when it comes out but is VASTLY lacking in single player and is sorta primitive. the next game is generally just an improved version of this and is released soon after so once it's out the former game is generally forgotten (Smash 64 and Smash 4)
The most well received game seen as near perfect by the community, it's competitive community thrives, it introduces quite a few fan favorite characters as well as quite a few clones, it has better single player than the last but it's not perfect, it's not got a story mode but an adventure mode that while having some great moments it quickly devolves to just slightly specialized matches, it's core gameplay is considered the best, cuts no-one (Melee, Ultimate)
And currently all we know about the next game is that Sakurai said there would be cuts and given how many fighters there's looking to be in Ultimate there probably gonna take out quite a few of the clones and probably have to cut of a couple more popular character and it's gonna be a loooooooong while until we get the next game. Given how they can't just sell the same game again but with less characters they'll probably beef up the single player to make that it's unique selling point, sorta like Brawl? Probably not, I'm likely overthinking things
I hope so too, Subspace 2 would be rad. Granted they improve on what came before (And bring back the Subspace trio) , I love that game mode but man does it have some blemishes.That's an interesting way to see it, I always thought of it in a different way that kind of comes to the same conclusions. Either we both overthink this, or maybe neither of us do:
The next game is most definitely going to be a long wait like Brawl was, which means it's most likely going to feel like a black sheep again, but maybe they can retain the gamemode and singleplayer content from last game while expanding upon Adventure mode more like Brawl did.
Footstools aren't the only means of edge-guarding if that's what's implied from the post.You were meant to play Smash with items on, Hazards on, and Edge-Guarding off.
Spikes ARE a form of edge-guarding though?edge guarding is intended, otherwise spikes would be useless
also there is no intended way of playing Smash, otherwise there wouldn't be so many options on how to play it
