Mwahahahahahaha... Uh... Thanks, Marilink!

Actually, you know what would be good?

Let's hit up a real sacred cow. Super Smash Brothers Melee, the unmistakably most popular game in the franchise!

1. Poke Floats might actually be the worst stage in Smash Brothers history in terms of unfair terrain deaths, but most give it a pass because it has a bunch of Pokemon flying around in it. It's literally just taking random models, making them platforms and having them bounce around the room.

3. c stick is camera control for some reason in the 1p modes, and there's no option to change it to attack. hope you haven't developed muscle memory in vs mode

5. Obviously, balance in this game is an issue. Fox is just simply the best character. Every move of his is useful, in a way that just invalidates a large majority of the cast. And the low-tier characters are truly trash, no two ways about it. There's a beauty in the meta game that has developed from it, but the factually terrible balance in the game is a fundamental flaw.

6. There is a stage based on and named after Onett from Earthbound, but the music for it is entirely from Mother 1.

Granted, it's one of the best tracks in the series, and there's Earthbound music in Fourside, but like. That's still false advertising.

10. Roy was a crappy character, almost as bad as Pichu. Why did people want him back for SSB4 again?

^^it's based on the Burning ability, and actually being able to go off edges with a dash attack is pretty useful

11. not only is Mr. Game & Watch the only character with a non-L-cancellable aerial, but he has THREE

(yes, L-cancelling is intentional before anyone brings it up)

12. I mean Val just mentioned it, but Pichu is so ****ing bad he warrants a post of his own. **** Pichu.

13. To get the Diskun Trophy you need to get all 249 bonuses which includes stipulations you would never think to do on your own. Also, you can't track which ones you have and haven't done so good luck with that.

14. The dress physics for Peach and Zelda are wonky on windy stages and their legs clip through the fabric of their skirts half the time. This bothered me so much as a kid. So much.

15. captain falcon and sheik are kinda useless in home run contest (you can subvert this with falcon punch and turning into zelda but still)

16. There's not enough slipping.

16. Technically moveset clones have been around since the first game (looking at you, Green Mario), but Melee was where they started appearing in droves.

^ um, I think we can all agree that the real offender in 64 was Red Luigi.

17. The category where you win based on style points is a fun concept (my sister and I played it a lot for ****s and giggles) but really unbalanced. It's more like "read & memorize all the arbitrary possible rewards and deductions to win."

19.) Some of the models (Yoshi, Bowser) look a bit off-model upon closer inspection.
