Oh my god, the Melee elitism in this thread is just getting atrocious.
If you honestly think your game is so much better in every way (I lol'd hard at "more balanced"), why the fuck do you even have to waste so much time and effort bashing the newer game other people love instead of just playing yours? Holy shit, seriously guys.
Both games are fucking fine. They take different approaches, and that's the whole point. Isn't it good that we actually have two Smash games at EVO? Well guess what, if every Smash game was just Melee reborn, we wouldn't. It was always going to be just the newer game, and screw fans of the older ones. Be fucking glad Melee had its revival and stop trying to bash on what's new just because you're a fan of the 14-year old game. Ugh.
Edit: If I'm being totally honest, I actually thought Melee was more hype than Smash 4 at Apex. Despite thinking Smash 4 is a better game for the players and just better game in general, at the time I felt like Melee was much better to watch, whereas Smash 4 was slow and boring. But you know what? That's to be expected, because the game just came out and people are still learning and getting better at it. And I'm glad to have seen that clear evolution at CEO, where Smash 4 was as hype as (if not more) than Melee.
Edit²: and obviously, I don't expect these hype levels to be anywhere near as high for Smash 4 at EVO, because customs suck hard.
