Do you ever feel obligated to play the games of the characters you play in Smash?

I feel a little dirty when I play someone like Olimar and have never played a Pikmin game.

Although it kind of annoys me to have a friend main Ness even though he hasn't the slightest clue where he's from.
>>
Who the fuck is Lucas, even?
>>
>>263548760
I play through all of my mains' games. Earthbound had excellent atmosphere and I'm fucking great at Octopus.
>>
I really only got into Fire Emblem after really enjoying playing Marth in Melee. I hadn't the slightest clue of FE before it.

>>
>>263548760
does anybody else feel the opposite? if they like a series they have to play that character in smash? I main sanic and will probably main villager because of this.
>>
My favorite ninty franchise is metroid and I always tell myself I'm going to play as samus, but I hate the way she plays.
>>
The only games represented in Smash that I haven't played are Fire Emblem series (tried it out and disliked it) and now Xenoblade (want to play but haven't gotten around to it yet

This shit ain't so bad. My stylus ain't a gun, but still.
>>
>>263549247
Well Fire Emblem was a Japanese-only franchise before Melee came out, so its understandable
>>
Not really. I try to play the ones I haven't since Pikmin and GX look cool, but I feel more guilty about enjoying playing characters that happen to be high-tier. I like how Marth plays, but I feel like an asshat picking him sometimes.
>>
>>263550923
Yeah, my favorite Nintendo series are Kirby, Pokemon, Mother and Xenoblade so I'm maining guys from those games.
Time to git gud with Ness now that Lucas is gone.

The gun was a piece of shit anyway. Just like the power pad.
>>
>>263550923

Not really. I have absolutely zero interest in Fire Emblem, but Ike is one cool motherfucker.
Like I don't feel the need to educate myself on every Marvel franchise before playing MvC.
>>
I think I've played every series that is represented in Smash Bros.

Well, actually, I never played a R.O.B. game.
>>
>>263548760
I remember renting F-Zero as a kid while my dad still had his SNES. I was very surprised and confused to see it was just a racing game. I don't really remember what I was expecting, but I was confused about Captain Falcon's as a fighter after playing.

And I remember Melee getting me interested in FE, but I never actually got it. Then Ike's announcement happened and I picked up PoR and fell in love with the series.

Also interested in playing Xenoblade but I've had that interest before Shulk got announced.

Donkey Kong, Xenoblade and Gyromite/Stack Up.

I main G&W and while I had the game and watch gallery games I feel like I should buy some original G&W games.
>>
>>263548760
Yeah. I'm playing through Xenoblade just to know what Shulk's deal is, since he's one of the few characters whose game I haven't played. I'm not enjoying it, though. Not sure if I'll beat it.
>>
>>263548760
I don't usually but it always helps you appreciate a character more when you have played their game
Like take Lucas for example for the longest time I just called him a pointless clone but after I played mother 3 he grew on me to the point I was saddened by his removal.

>>263552753
I have not played the Fire Emblem and ROB games.

Personally it always weirds me out when I see anons who haven't played any Mario or Zelda games.

How the fuck have some of you guys never played any Mega Man games?

>>263550923
This is how I am, too. Kirby has always been my favorite series, and I've got a huge nostalgia-boner for Pokemon, so I've pretty much mained Kirby or Pikachu or Jigglypuff in every iteration of Smash so far. But people always shit on me and called me a tierfag in Brawl when I always played MetaKnight.

Fuck you, I've loved MetaKnight ever since I got Kirby Super Star on my SNES.

Uprising is fun. Its longer than you'd think but in a good way. Comedy is solid, action is a bit clunky to start but you get used to it.

You do realize that if you guys actually played some of these great games you would probably be having so much fun you'd forget all about waiting for Smash?

>>263554462
Exactly, I never understood people's anger towards more obscure characters, especially in a case like Smash where all the popular stuff has pretty much been covered and then some.

The roster would be pretty boring without any surprises.
I will admit I never even knew what a Game and Watch was before Melee, but I'm glad he's made it there and is still around.

A couple hours in. Nothing too interesting has happened yet, so I guess there's still time for the plot to pick up. But in terms of gameplay and visuals, it's not impressive so far. It kind of feels like FFXII without any of the charm. And I'm not even a fan of FF.

>>263555172
I don't mind characters that are more obscure, but I feel like they should at least be characters who have shown that they are still memorable in Nintendo's history.

That's what bothers me about Smash 4, in the previous games all the characters were major memorable people in their series, now we have a bunch of people like Robin and Shulk whose games are really recent and probably won't be remembered in the future the way Link or Olimar is, it just feels weird to me.

Once you get to the Bions Leg things start to get fun until you have to slog through a shitty Mine because plot

But after that its smooth sailing since you start to get more party options, the Mine is arguably the game's lowest point

You still have at least 60 hours worth of game to get through if you're only a few hours in.
>>
>>263555810
No, I'll accept any quest I find on my way to doing things, but I've never done a conscious effort to beat them. The affinity chart looks interesting, but I don't want this to drag on. I think I'd rather rush through it just to see the story.

It made me even more pissed about pittoo though, even if he wasn't a clone literally any other character would've been better.

I've not played Uprising, but Phosphorus seems like a far better idea for a character than both Pitoo and Palutena.
>>
>>263555662
I definitely get that feeling from Smash 4 as well. (Guy's like Robin or the Kid Icarus charactes outside Pit don't quite feel "iconic" in any particular way)

I guess thats part of the reason why people were really wanting more villains in this one, since that is always an important part of any series with one.

It all depends on their future relevancy. Roy was in for advertising FE6, but was cut because he wasn't as relevant, while Ike stayed for getting two games and at least being more popular than Roy.

Awakening stuff might continue to be relevant, and Robin will stay, he could be replaced by a future MU, or he could be cut.

Xenoblade appears to be being set up as a FF-like franchise with different worlds but shared elements like battle system and mascot species, so Shulk could stay around as the first MC for that series if it takes off, especially since XCX has a created MC.
>>
>>263548760
I know what you mean. I probably never would have even considered Nintendo games outside of just Mario and Pokemon if not for Smash. I had never even played a Zelda game before Smash.

the megaman reveal got me interested in the series, and i've played megaman 2/megaman x and battle network, all of which I liked a lot (BN was okay)

Yes

I've been trying to play all games that have characters which appear in smash.

Tried to do this with pretty much any game that had stages / assist trophies, but not enough time.

About to finish punch out (never played a game with little mac), then I have to move on to path of radiance and xenoblade (for shulk and ike) and I'll be done. I don't think I'll make it. Those are the only characters which I havent played their games

I at least try to give them a try, but if I find the games unenjoyable I drop them and forget about them.

Not gonna lie, this is probably why I'm so interested in Villager and Greninja. This is also why I like Olimar (and Alph) a lot.

Xenoblade, Wii Fit and Gyromite/Stack Up. I'm sure I played Ice Cimbers at some point. I'm gonna get Xenoblade when the new 3ds comes out probably.

The only series that is acceptable to not have played is game and watch, ice climbers, wii fit and gyromite.

If you have anything besides those 4 then what the fuck are you doing on /v/?

Such as wii fit and gyromite, ice climbers and game and watch are mediocre and obscure games that don't really have any merit besides being old.

Xenoblade I can KINDA pass because it is too new and also hard to play if you're a poorfag since you either have to pay retarded amounts of money for a copy or need a high end pc to emulate (you're still a suhuman casual, but not quite dudebro tier), but fire emblem? Which anyone can emulate on a toaster?

Nah, fuck off casual.

I kind of do feel a bit obligated for the most part. Smash is probably my favorite series and I want to be familiar with most of what is represented. I purchased New Leaf and Uprising after Smash was revealed back in 2013. Also, since it appeared that Shulk was going to have a likely chance (especially with all the talk of leaks) i decided to pick up Xenoblade beforehand. It made the reveal much sweeter.
That's just my opinion though, and of course it doesn't apply to everyone.
>>
>>263562054
the thing about ice climber is that you can play 10 minutes of it and get pretty much the entire experience. there's no real excuse not to have played it when it can be emulated and theres ports everywhere. hell the little "masterpiece" area in brawl is all you need. all that aside i'll admit its pretty shit. punchout is fun as fuck though and one of the coolest NES games so yea fuck you

punchout is not easily missable. earthbound is long, expensive, and didnt get any ports for a long time that's easily missable. you could be playing punchout right now on your computer or phone. It's definately a classic. also the sequel for wii was one of the best games for that system and is relatively recent. so you're still a casual.

What happened?
>>
>>263548760
Just picked up Xenoblade after seeing the Shulk trailer, and I'm glad I did. Partially because it's a good game, partially because I'll feel a bit more attached to the character when I play as him.

I'd say it increases the novelty of the game if you're familiar with the characters, such that instead of just being big blue haired swordsman vs. little schoolboy dude, it's Ike--the same guy that defeated Ashnard and eventually even Ashera--battling against the very same Ness that fought against bizarre enemies and saved the world with the help of some other quirky helpers. It definitely adds to the charm of the game.
>>
>>263550923
Yeah. Though opinion on him is divided, even if Mega Man turns out to be shit I'm still going to use him a lot. At least I hope so, I gave up on using Samus in Brawl after a while, thank God she's gotten buffed.
>>
>>263567889
/v/ is an echo chamber.
They heard people were hyped for Mac and got hyped themselves.
>>
>>263552753
Animal Crossing, Wii Fit, and Gyromite

I also, shamefully, never played much of Earthbound or F-Zero. Bought them on the VC and forgot about them quickly. Damn, I should at least get back to Earthbound, what I played was fun.
>>
>>263548760
It brought me into the Nintendo games.
I seriously could only name Mario and Pokémon characters.
>>
>>263568723
Wow
>>
>>263548760
Growing up with 64 I had never heard of most of the characters. I recognized the Mario characters, the Pokemon, Donkey Kong and Captain Falcon. I grew up with a SNES and had vaguely heard of games like Zelda, but I didn't have a chance to actually play them.

By Melee's release I knew all of them except Marth, Ice Climbers and Samus, and by Brawl I only hadn't played Gyromite.

Smash got me into Metroid. I picked up Metroid Prime after seeing Samus in Smash 64 and Melee.

I almost picked up FE:A the other day, but it was $40 new at Gamestahp. I'm also interested in trying Kid Icarus Uprising.

I'm afraid after playing Uprising I'll be like "Oh. Dark Pit is kinda neat actually" when I want to continue disliking him for the sake of disliking him.
>>
The fist time I played Smash 64 was through emulation, on 2004. I was 10.
By the time Brawl came out I knew a lot about Nintendo and hyped the game to death; I would check the Dojo every single day before going to school.
When Olimar got revealed, I shat by pants just by how cool his playstyle was even though I had never played Pikmin; I also loved Dedede even though my contact with Kirby games was very little.

Now, seven years after Brawl, I know most of Nintendo characters and history, and I can thank Brawl for that.
Smash is more than a fighting game, it's a celebration of Nintendo's history.

I only play as characters from games I like.
I mained Samus since 64 and Bowser since Melee. Lucario was the first pokemon I used in the games that appeared in smash and now use him. I wanted to main Olimar since I love Pikmin but could never get the hang of him, but I do use him for fun. The only character to break this rule was Wolf in Brawl, I like the StarFox series and everything but never really got into it, I only mained him because I like wolves. And when I get the game I intend to main Bowser Jr because my favourite Mario game had the koopalings and Duck Hunt because I had the Mario/Duck Hunt cartridge as a kid.

I remember playing Earthbound after playing as Ness in SSB. I never even heard of the character nor the game before but I loved it when I did get around to playing it.

Though you can bet your ass we'll never get a Giygas stage nor as an assist trophy. Nintendo has a "whatever happens in Earthbound, stays in Earthbound" stance. Except when it involves the start of the game.

I would have liked to see an assist trophy at least where he fucks with the screen, glitching it up and making multiple smaller screens moving in a north-west direction, going to static and then turning back to normal.

Similar to the game I mean.

Either that or he becomes the background and inflicts random status effects on opponents.
