What's super serious about playing a 1v1 with some people you barely know from a forum?
Have you actually tried playing a 1v1 without items? It's fun. Doesn't have to be work either.
Yeah I have and it's not fun at all, to me. Playing stock 1v1 with no items puts me in a VERY specific mood, and if I lose I hate it. I'm only kinda okay at Smash so losing all the time would just take the fun out of it. That's why i play multiplayer, all items, all stages, time battles, oftentimes a random character. If I'm not trying my absolute best I don't care if I lose. Being put in a situation where it's JUST the characters with no random elements or hazards, it stops being fun. Hell, even when I'm winning (which I used to do in that environment), I got bored of that playstyle very quickly. Often the same characters in the same level doing the same moves ad nauseum.
I happen to love fucking people up with Jigglypuff or King Dedede but I'd never play 1v1 with them because they're troll characters to me. Sometimes I wanna be cool with Lucario or badass with Ryu but I'm not great with either of them and going into a 1v1 fight with them is a recipe for death. I'd basically have to chose Link, Marth, Ness, or Zelda every time and damn that'd bore me. The glory in Smash comes from the chaos that ensues with items and stages and modifiers. Sure, it's base gameplay is wonderful and some of the best in fighting game history which makes it great for competitive play but jesus I have no interest in that. I avoid most online games because losing all the time (due to me being a filthy casual in most instances) is infuriating.
Do not understand why having a preference and an opinion on what makes a game fun is somehow condemning others. Cat girl is right, it's kind of strange that one has to add a qualifier to subjective statements just to assure certain people that you're not attacking them. Try growing a backbone and stop being offended by people having opinions that don't match up with your own. Gaming is great BECAUSE we have so many different types of gamers and Smash is outstanding because it really does offer something for everyone. I just personally can't stand playing with certain types because it takes all the fun out of it.
I got it all, baby!
