4. Super Smash Bros. Melee (3 last year)
First Impression 10/10: The goodness of Smash Bros along with more than doubling the cast and adding a massive amount of extra modes and features compared to the original game, added along with the fact that this was my GameCube launch game of choice, so my first experience with Gen 6, it left one of the strongest first impressions.
Replay 10/10: Smash Bros, 'nuff said.
Technical 8/10: Balance drags the score down, unbalance that played into the hands of the hated tourneyfolks (to avoid a three-letter epithet). Nerfing Kirby sat poorly with me, too. Otherwise as solid as a Smash game can be.
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
