Best Super Smash Bros. Games

The Top Ten

1 Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. Brawl Product Image

Wow, I'm shocked Melee isn't #1. Melee is universally heralded as the best Smash game of all time, and I would agree, actually. It has the most polished and balanced gameplay. But Brawl has Subspace Emissary, Twilight Princess Link (the best design of Link, game aside), stage building, music preference settings, and all of my nostalgic heart.

I'm surprised this is #1, because I was expecting Melee to take #1. So far, Brawl is my favorite Smash game. I played the HECK out of it back in the spring and summer of 2008 (got it for my 11th birthday). It had a fantastic roster that was getting more diverse (adding non-Nintendo characters like Sonic and Snake), and also introducing Lucas (which drew me towards playing the Mother series). It also had Subspace Emissary, and it's a lot of fun to play through.
It's a shame that Brawl is the black sheep of the Smash Bros games. It gets a lot of flack, especially from Melee fans (the rabid Melee fans seem to hate any Smash game that isn't Melee in general, sadly...)

This game is perfect! Best story, greatest graphics, so much crossover characters to play as, very strong emphasis & a lot of skilled fighting! Now why do people give this game hate all of a sudden?

So glad this is number 1. All I hear is negative points about this game from melee fans when they can't accept that Brawl is better in almost every single way

2 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Product Image

I started Smash Bros. With Melee, but when I played Smash Wii U, I really loved it. It has the best roster in the entire franchise, great modes (my favourite being Crazy Orders) and amazing DLC. To me, this is the best game in the series, followed by Melee and I would highly recommend this game to anyone.

Ugh the modes in this game are only like 2 or 3 newcomers are good, the new stages are pretty and no one likes that Mario party ripoff 6/10

Best controls. Best graphics. Best gameplay. Best roster. This game is the best in the franchise.

Well, at least until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes out.

THIS GAME IS AWESOME. I just really want it but sadly I don't have a wii u

3 Super Smash Bros. Melee Super Smash Bros. Melee Product Image

Melee surpasses EVERY smash bros game, it has the fastest gameplay and the best controls.

Melee is better then Smash Bros. 4 because it has characters that don't exist in Brawl. It has better controls, Awesome audios better then 4. They got 1 rock and roll is Multi Man Melee. 4 has no rock and rolls so Super Smash Bros. Melee is better then Smash Bros. 4

One of my favorite GameCube games to my childhood days. I actually like this second installment because the atmosphere of the game is quite fun and amusing at times. With the arrival of 12 newcomers (Ice Climbers, Marth, Roy, Peach, Bowser, Falco, MG&W, Zelda/Sheik, Mewtwo, Pichu, Young Link and Ganondorf), new music, new features and some brand new stages with the returning stages of SSB64, it's quite a good game from this premodern console. Although there are some few flaws like the game speed and the game mechanics from the character, it's certainly a game that you want to play it again due to the replay value. This game is not the best on the Smash series and not bad either, it's a good game on the GameCube era. I give it a 7.5/10.

Crazy fast and difficult to play. arguably the second hardest fighting game to play at top level.

4 Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Product Image

I'll say it should be at least third because it's a little worse than wii u because wii u has eight player smash and it's just fine. I have smash brawl and the problem is that it has a not much things in it, and melee and smash normal has not too good graphics.

Nintendo lost their creative streak when it came to names for this and Wii U.

I like the portable smash bros because it is an easy game to pick up and play in the car. Gameplay wise it isn't the best though

Smash is finally portable!

5 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Product Image

I have always preferred the gameplay speed in Melee over other games, but after playing through every character in Ultimate I found that it was easier to plan out each move and have a little more control throughout the game. Ultimate is my favorite for the amazing gameplay and surplus roster. Melee is my second favorite for its competitive nature and fast gameplay.

EVERYONE IS HERE... I mean, come on, its got everything. The largest roster with all fighter in it. The largest stagelist with over 100 unique stage, 3 forms of every stage.

This game is the most bought fighting game for a reason

Why is smash 4 and stupid brawl above this?
This game literally has every character every. However, just wait for Waluigi.

Come on. Why isn't this the number smash game. I mean seriously. Everyone is here! Anything you like from other smash games, besides Subspace Emissary, is in tye game. Along with other amazing extra things such as Squad Strike and Spirit Board.
How could you not like this game. You like Pichu, Snake, Young Link, Pokemon trainer, but didn't get some of them in Brawl or Smash 4. Well... Smash Ultimate has it all. Not to mention it's not missing many stages at all. I thought Smash 4's stage count was ridiculous, but then I got Smash Ultimate, and WOW! All these stages are so much fun.
I don't know about you, but when you have everything in a game, why wouldn't it be better than it's predecessors.

6 Super Smash Bros. Super Smash Bros. Product Image

In the cartoon show of super smash bros Mario and luigi would be the cool guys donkey kong would love fighting and be over the top pacman would love talking and mega man's favorite band would be styx and it would have the monsters magicians dragons and warriors from yugioh not the pokemons and that would be better and there can be a movie that be a crossover of super smash bros and yugioh called the army of darkness like Mario luigi dark magician and magician of black chaos donkey kong and nitro warrior link and celtic guardian mega man and junk warrior and sonic and speed warrior they would all fight side by side it would be so cool

Far better then Tr4sh on the WiiU and 3DS. Extensive comboes, fun to play. set the stage for future games, this is the original

Super smash bros is my other favorite video game and I believe there should be a cartoon show of it donkey kong would joining forces with Mario and luigi captain falcon and link would team up and so would mega man and sonic also some romance about sonic and amy it would have very cool animation and heart pounding action like video power and captain n the video game masters and have higher ratings

You cannot even argue that this game is best! The N64 graphics & etc are perfect! I love this game no matter what. I especially love the story & crossover characters.

7 Super Smash Flash 2

Smash Bros 4 Wii U might be great but this game is just amazing in my opinion. What other Smash game lets you play as Black Mage and Goku? While I like Ultimate the most this one comes in at 2nd for me. And the first Smash flash game is nothing compared to this

This game is the best flash game ever I swear I can't even say how many hours I soaked in this game 10/10

Free, easy to access, also really balanced, like Ultimate but maybe even more. has GOKU

Should fan games really count?

8 Super Smash Bros. Project M

How can a FAKE game be higher than a real one?

This actually exists?...

Amazing mod 9/10

9 Super Smash Bros N64

I don't have that game but its nice

It's just called Super Smash Bros. and it's already on here

10 Super Smash Bros. Crusade

The ability to customize the gameplay, your character, and the roster is incredible, despite the few scenarios and game modes, becomes a game quite addictive and perfect for casual players, each character has his own and even has a touch Different compared to other fan games and Smash games, no doubt deserves a great approval.

Multi-Man Crusade

Smash fan game with a gigantic roster. Much easier to play than ssf2

Giant roster, amazing animation, easier than ssf2. Need I say more?

The Contenders
