it was an interesting list, but I swear that just made me spend like... an hour looking at other top tens they had on that site. Now it's like.... 3:30. Man does time fly...

But SSMB is still not a fighting game. I would say it is a platform beat them up game ala One Piece.

So take away 2 extra players and what type of game is it to you then?

 

In bare bones it's achived a sort of nirvana of "a perfect" fighter. It's even on all fronts for the most part and it's enough that no one is a simple clone of each other beyond weight classes (ala MK series, where the difference was only in Special Attacks). Replaced the life bars with lives and damage indecator. It also takes place on a 2D plane. Bad analogy, but it's like a hockey game; Both reset towards the center ice for the puck drop, and it can either go in your zone (defensively when your running at 100%+) or their zone (When your doing all the damage).

 

I honestly hate that analogy, but it's the best description of SSBM. But hey, it took me like 5 years for me to accept SSBM as a "fighting game." Well for one, it is a fighter but isn't in a traditional sense.

 

Ultimately, this list boardlines both niche and mainstream selections. If one would ask "Why no Capcom vs SNK 2" would be simple. Marvel vs Capcom 2 is simply the more accepted game because of it's ease to get into (Same applies too SSBM ironically).
