The Smash Brothers

Hey! Thanks for reading! Just a reminder that I wrote this some years ago, and may have much more complicated feelings about this topic than I did when I wrote it. Happy to elaborate, feel free to reach out to me! 😄

While I play a ton of StarCraft, one of the games closest to my heart is Super Smash Bros. Melee. I probably played that game more than any other in high school, and only as I was having to focus on my senior year and a major production did I discover that there was a high-level scene, where people (about my age, often younger) from disparate cities would drive up and down coasts to play and learn from each other.

A member of the community made a fantastic documentary on the game and its most influential players. If you ever played the game, at any level, there's a good chance you'll love checking it out. Even if you've never played it, it's a very entertaining story.
