Smash really doesn't take much real skill. I've been to a few Smash tournaments and It was always against the same couple characters, this game...Pretty much any character can be devestating against anyone, and it takes more skill, getting the setups right, and taking risks on your supers.
Smash Bros is definitely the more balanced game, and it's also got far less flaws about it, but conceptually, I vastly prefer PSA. I like this game's style of play more than the one in Smash Bros. I'll always love Smash Bros, but this game has a certain style of play to it that is just more fun in my opinion. Don't get me wrong though. Smash Bros has a wonderful system, but I prefer PSA's combination of combos and super attacks better than Smash Bros' damage building and straightup kills. The concept of building up energy to take out opponents with super moves is much more fun for me than building damage and then going in to kill them with a strong enough attack.
Edit: I was trying to think of the term 'ringout' but just couldn't. Anyway, what I was trying to say is that I like having to build energy and kill with super attacks opposed to just building upb damage and hoping my strikes can cause a ringout. Smash bros is fun, but that concept just isn't as exciting to me.
Tough call. I enjoy both so much. However, I think the All-Stars system could become the clear choice if it is perfected. I like having combos and how All-Stars is closer to an actual fighting game than Smash Bros, but it retains the sheer fun and absolute insanity of Smash Bros very well. Obviously, balancing is an issue in both games. I think certain tweaks to the All-Stars formula would put it way over Smash. I think the super system should be kept. I enjoy it.
I agree entirely. The combos and super system are what really makes me enjoy this game. With the proper fixes, this game could go so far. This concept is far better than damage building and ringouts to me, but the game is just filled with annoying glitches and flaws.
