#42: Super Smash Bros.
The game that started it all. For that alone I have a spot in my heart for this game. But even today it still has something to offer to anyone willing to pick up a controller. It's one of the reasons I think the series is so beloved, for the fact that each game has a unique feel compared to the rest. Smash 64 is different from Melee which is different from Brawl which is different than 3DS/Wii U, and all of them are a blast to play. But Smash 64 is still a great game, just as it was back in 1999 when us gamers were freaking out about the fact that we finally got to pit Mario and Link together in a battle of the ages. So many amazing memories, so many smiles. That's what it's all about. Oh, and my main is Link in Smash 64. He's pretty rad in this one!
