RDR 2. Smash isn't for me.



Around the Network

RDR 2, since it's the game I'll most likely play.



Both are really far away from my mind right now quite honestly.

They are the only big games of the end of the year ( unless we consider Spiderman but september is not really the end of of the year)



Predictions for end of 2014 HW sales:

 PS4: 17m   XB1: 10m    WiiU: 10m   Vita: 10m

 

Yeah, I mean, what is this question about. Both games appeal to widely different audiences, not saying someone can't be excited for both but there's no real comparison at all. Different genres, different platforms, different audiences, different everything. Personally I'm more excited for Smash, of course, I've never even played RDR - and the opposite probably applies to many who picked RDR.

RDR2. There is nothing wrong with Smash, I played Smash 1 and 2 and enjoyed them (skipped 3 and 4 since I didn't own Wii or Wii U), but in the end it's nothing all that special. You can only get but so much enjoyment out of beating up people and sending them flying off the stage before it starts to feel kind of samey. It's a fun game to play for an hour or two to kill some time, or to play when you have friends over, but that's about it. A game like RDR2 with a most likely top-class story and lots of gameplay variety just offers so much more than a game like Smash does imo, if it's anything like RDR1 I'll be able to play it for marathon 8 hour spells at a time and not get bored. 

Also, this post gave me c... no I won't say it because of that thread the other day. But it made me quite disappointed.

I don't see what about it offends you so much. I've played both series in the past, and while I think Smash is a fun distraction, time killer type of game, I don't feel like it has the "meat", or depth if you prefer, to have lasting appeal for me personally. Smash is the kind of game that I'll rent, play around with for maybe a week, a few hours a day, and send it back to Gamefly when I get bored. RDR2 is the kind of game that I will buy, marathon it on release, then replay it several times over the years, just like I did with the first RDR, which is my #1 all-time favorite game. If you prefer Smash that is perfectly fine, but my opinion is just as valid.

Calling Smash a "fun distraction, time killer" type of game, because it's not. Sure, maybe that's how you see it, but for millions of people, Smash is a way of life. It's obvious you are the kind of person who enjoys single-player games, because you seem to judge Smash solely based on its single-player appeal (on which terms of course it's nowhere near as good as RDR, because it's not meant to be), so it kinda makes sense you'll get bored of it after a while. Matches against CPUs can only be fun for so long. But as a multiplayer game, Smash has always had an immense wealth of content with rather deep gameplay, making it essentially everlasting for people who delve deep into it.

I haven't played RDR, but there are many single-player games I can marathon for 8-hours once or twice. It's awesome. Smash, though? I probably played it for 8 hours straight (or more) with friends dozens of times, and it never gets old. That's the beauty of multiplayer games - they can allow for endless possibilities.

Also, the amount of content delivered with each Smash release has grown exponentially since Melee (except exclusively single-player content in Smash 4, which was lacking), and Ultimate doesn't change that. But implying Smash has no "meat" when it features possibly the largest fighting game roster ever (and certainly the most impressive one), over 100 stages and 900 songs, besides loads of different modes for both single-player and multiplayer, yeah... no.



Smash Bros. hands down!!



Both games are ports, so no hype here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
