18. Super Smash Bros (29 last year) first impression 8.5, replay 10, technical 7.5
Pros: It launched the Smash Bros franchise, with its focus on fast-paced fighting action that, for once, did not revolve around endless combos and instead focused on spatial maneuvers, platforming, and singular strikes. Chuck in 12 iconic Nintendo characters, and you have an instant classic.
Cons: Rather paltry content-wise compared to the games that came later.
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
