I should mention that Super Smash Bros is a topic that will be interesting to not just me, but you as well! As my audience, I should tell you all a little bit about why Super Smash Bros might be of interest to you. Firstly, Super Smash Bros is an extremely diverse and family-friendly game, much like the sport of soccer in some ways, anyone can pick up and play, without needing to be very good. Of course the diversity and broad appeal of the game also means that more competitive gamers are able to pick it up and delve into the deeper, more hard-core competitive gameplay. That’s the great thing about the game though, even if you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re still able to start playing and have an amazing time, and in this sense it’s a game that draws parallels to other family-friendly ones like the famous Mario Kart. In addition to this, watching and following competitive Super Smash Bros, much like sports, can become really interesting and is something worth blogging about. Much like sports analysis shows prior to the actual sporting event, I will be using this blog in a similar manner to keep you updated on my favourite Smash Bros players as well as my own progress as a player. The current state of play in Super Smash Bros globally is one that is flourishing greatly. The most famous and religiously played Smash game of them all is Melee, the second edition in the franchise. Across the globe, many people play Melee and the latest Smash game, which is Super Smash Bros for the Wii U. One of the best things that will make Smash such an interesting topic for you guys and for a blogging platform is the fact that it lends itself to the analytical side of writing. What I mean is there is a flourishing online gaming journalism trend where many gaming journalists will keep track of and review the playing styles of their favourite players. What with it being such a diverse game, everyone’s playing style is different! And this makes for some fantastic analysis which, like I said, draws similarities to sporting analysis’. I look forward to discussing Super Smash Bros with you, and I hope you find it as diverse and fun as I’ve made it out to be in this post! Thank you!
