Smash Ultimate no contest.

Is it really any different then previous Smash games?

Terrible poll.

Beat Saber -- if you own VR, vote here
Celeste -- if you're an indie snob, vote here
Dragalia Lost -- mobile game
God of War -- if you own a PS4, vote here
Luigi's Mansion -- remake
Monster Hunter: World
Red Dead Redemption 2 -- if you own an Xbox, vote here
Spyro Reignited Trilogy -- remake
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate -- if you own a Switch, vote here


How did a mobile game (oh, Nintendo) and not one but two remakes make this list?

Hell, if Beat Saber is on here then Just Shapes & Beats should be too.

Celeste is great but where's DUSK, Subnautica, The Forest, Rimworld, CrossCode, Iconoclasts, Deep Rock Galactic, Into the Breach, Ghost of a Tale, Minit, Deltarune, Frostpunk, Wizard of Legend, Forgotton Anne, Unforeseen Incidents, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, Overload, Dead Cells, Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark, Amid Evil, The Messenger, GRIS, The King's Bird, Lucah: Born of a Dream, Return of the Obra Dinn, Distraint 2, and others?

Where's Hitman 2? Kingdom Come: Deliverance or Dragon Ball FighterZ? Ni no Kuni II?

The marketing for the game was literally 'we're not doing anything new, this is just a compilation of previous content'.

The poll just takes the winners of the previous polls, it's no conspiracy.

That's all it needed to do, Smash is one of the greatest franchises of all time (imo at least), the past games were incredible as well, no need to screw up the formula too much.

And Sakurai seemed to go out of his way to appease as many fans as possible (Although the smash community is super whiny and will complain about stuff anyway). Every character returning meaning no one loses their favorite characters, this is a big one for me since I've lost mains in the past and it sucks. And then several highly requested characters got in, Ridley, K. Rool, Daisy. Only ones they are missing is Waluigi and Isaac, Waluigi fans I don't even take seriously, and Isaac is scraping the bottom of the barrel. He even threw Indies a bone with Shovel Knight as an assist trophy and Shantae with spirit representation. Then for stages sure we didn't get many new ones but we got back some great ones that have been absent for a long time like Fourside and Brimstar Depths. There are 74 characters + 6 on the way, and 103 stages + 5 on the way, I find that incredible and I for one really appreciate the lengths Sakurai has gone to for the fans, it's a level of dedication you don't see often these days even if many others don't appreciate it.

Only thing I will say is that it is kind of lacking certain modes. No stage builder, watered down all star, no home run contest, break the targets or other mini game modes. But World of Light was fun and I sunk 60+ hours into that in no time.

World of Light is the best thing to happen in Smash in forever. I enjoy the series, but it really helped give it a new layer, I feel. I also feel like this is the best Smash yet, and the customization options make it possible to feel like any previous Smash, for the most part.

I mean it never really did anything for me personally, growing up it was only a game I would play because other people wanted to play it.

As an adult I have no desire to play it really since the social aspect is gone.
