When I was a teen, one of my biggest dreams was to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Video games are quite expensive where I live, so I couldn't afford a Wii. However, Super Smash Bros. 64 was one of my favorite games to play with my friends.

After some years, I could finally play Brawl and I got hooked to it. What an amazing experience. Loved the new characters, the Subspace Emissary mode, the cutscenes, everything.

However, I found quite a bunch of people that really hates Brawl. I'm not sure if part of this community is just being toxic, but I couldn't ignore it. It started back in 2012/2013 when a online friend of mine, who is a Melee lover said that Brawl is "a slow paced pile of crap" and the only suitable way to play it was through Project M.

I mean, I love Brawl. It's one of the best experiences I had with gaming. I don't understand where this hate is coming from. The game is not even as slow as they say, it has the best cast of characters (Maybe before Ultimate) and the stages are very fun to play. Also, Subspace Emissary is the best single player experience I found in the series.

So, how do you rate Brawl?
