Best Super Smash Bros. Games

The Top Ten
1 Super Smash Bros. Brawl Super Smash Bros. Brawl Product Image

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...)

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.

Brawl is best game because it had a good version of Lucas and Lucas is the best. Take that back I main Ice Climbers. I used to play Meta Knight but they don't let me play him anywhere for some strange reason.

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?

My ranking of all the games, from worst to best:

5. Brawl: Don't hate me... The game has sluggish gameplay and RANDOM TRIPPING! The online also sucked, back when it still existed.
4. Smash 64: VERY Underrated, I don't know why people say it is clunky. It has a lot of nostalgia involved with it.
3. Smash 3DS: Still fun, even if it is downgraded for a portable console. DLC makes the game even better, and Smash Run is also the BEST EXCLUSIVE MODE IN THE WHOLE SERIES! (Even better than The Subspace Emissary)
2. Melee: Very fast-paced, which makes it great for competitive gaming, and the single player modes are all really fun.
1. Smash Wii U: Has the best gameplay, the most content, a functional online mode, and DLC to improve the game and make it appeal to a wider audience.

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.

Wii U stinks, badass HD graphics, badas Kirby inhaling sound, badass Internet because I end up getting disadvantage of Expert characters and laggy Internet, Fox's voice is annoying like a Mexican, No subtitle, OP Princess Peach, deleted characters in Brawl so I hate this game, Like I said, Melee is better. 2 more things, Rosalina keeps appearing in every Mario games, and Nintendo keeps bringing back the old 1980 stuff which really needs to be a worst game

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.

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

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.

When ultimate came out, everyone was hooked, including me. "Everyone is here! " I know, right, sounds awesome! It is. But there is really no topping the classics. It was THE game that people bought gamecubes for, and it did not disappoint. People say that ultimate is somehow faster, but no! Ultimate I found to be only a bit faster than ssb4, still respectable, but still geared more towards casuals (and the online is an amalgamation of all the things that can make the internet bad). However, melee, even though almost 20 years old, STILL is one of the fastest VIDEO GAMES ever (only fzero tops it) and it just works. Unlike the recent games, which you can unlock every single character within a day (looking at you, wiiu), it actually took time and felt good to unlock characters, and even though there were only a few of them, every one felt polished and fun (even if they sucked brawl in competitive play), and there will never be a game that takes more time to truly learn and is more ...more

Even though I never played it, I know that no one can argue with the fact that Super Smash Bros. Melee is the best Super Smash Bros. Game

Melee is better than Smash Bros. 4 because it has characters that don't exist in Brawl. It has better controls, Awesome audios better than 4. They got 1 rock and roll is Multi Man Melee. 4 has no rock and rolls. Melee surpasses EVERY smash bros game, it has the fastest gameplay and the best controls. Brawl may have the better adventure mode but compare tis classic mode to melee's. now the event modes. melee has better single player over all. it also gives you more of a hardcore competitive feeling than brawl in my opinion.

Follows through with almost all of the mechanics that were enjoyed in previous games. Not only is the game way more balanced, with low tiers sometimes winning tourneys, EVERYONE is here, and I mean everyone. (Of course, the Fighters Pass can be controversial, but we got Banjo and Kazooie!). Ultimate also has huge amounts of versatility in speed, with certain characters like Joker playing with almost Melee-like speed and dexterity, whereas there are slow characters like Sonic (who could be super fast, but has the power to run away like no-one else). Honestly probably the most versatile game in the franchise. I started liking Melee more, but definitely amazing for players of all calibers. The online is absolute crap, but apart from that, great game for casuals and competitive players.

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.

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.

The ultimate title of the Smash game in the Nintendo Switch. With around 76 characters and more from returning characters, newcomers, Echo Fighters and DLCs, 108 veterans, remaked and returning stages (+5 in DLCs), 1000 music, new modes like Spirits and Squad Strike and the World of Light mode on these ones, new features and etc, this is massively the mashup and the most profilic third-party fighting game of all-time. Combine 64 x Melee x Brawl x 4 in ingredients and mix it together: Now is the true Smash game for everybody!

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

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

Smash is finally portable!

Yes this awesome.

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.

Oh yeah! The N64 days! The first game that I have to see the Nintendo characters fight each other on the T.V. screen! It was one of my favorite N64 games.

I love it, it's an old classic!
