     If you purchased(any day one purchasers?) Super Smash Bros. Brawl, do you find yourself still playing it?

If you haven't purchased Super Smash Bros. Brawl, you can see prices for it on below:



  1. I think I bought it on the first day but I'm not sure. It was definitely in the first two weeks. I played through pretty much all I could accomplish withing the first month and I don't think it's been touched since. Still made it to 140 hours though, and that's with very little multiplayer.

  2. ha i bought it from day 1 and i still play it! ive logged in about 500 hours! XD lots of multiplayer

  3. I bought it day one. I don't play it alone anymore (I unlocked everything, every single trophy) but it's still a great game and a must-play when friends come over because of the awesome multiplayer.

  4. i pre-oredered brawl, so got it the day before it's official release, and i have now clocked just pver 300 hours on it. I love this game, and although i may only play it about once a month now, when i do play on it, i find myself stuck on there for hours. it's amazing how i can play a game for 300 hours, and still have more fun than i do on most new games. amazing.

  5. @Jonath:
    140 hours and very little multiplayer for a game is great I think! Is there any particular reason you didn't play much multiplayer in it?

    500 hours is more than any game hours we have recorded on our system! Do you play the online multiplayer?

    @Anonymous from August 7, 2010 @ 12:07AM:
    How long did unlocking everything take you?

    "it's amazing how i can play a game for 300 hours, and still have more fun than i do on most new games."
    Yea, I found myself last generation continuing to buy new games, when I hadn't completed "new" games I had already purchased. I have done better with that this generation.

    I'm trying to play the games I have, before buying new ones.

    Thank you all very much for the comments!

  6. Watch out Monster Hunter Tri is going to smash those records pretty soon. ;-)

  7. My wife got me a pre-order for my birthday. Picked it up day one, still my number one in hours played. This is the only game I've put back into my Wii since getting MHTri. In fact, I just played over the weekend.
    The online is the best in this game. People whined about friend codes, no stats and other features, but I found it perfect.
    No stats means no reason to cheat and strikes me as the best anti cheat method ever implemented. And when people do cheat, its actually more fun than anything else.

    When you do do something amazing online, bam, replay. I have an SD card chock full of crazy replays and snap shots. This game is just packed to the gills with stuff that makes me happy.

  8. @The Butcher:
    Monster Hunter Tri will smash one of the records pretty would take some MAJOR sales of MHT and data reporting for it to smash all of SSBB's data.

    Interesting that your wife got you SSBB for your birthday, my wife got me SSBB for our 4 year wedding anniversary...I traded the game off a few months later! Yes, yes, she knew I was trading it off.
    For whatever reason, I have never really gotten into the Smash Bros. games.

    BTW, I watched that YouTube video, and that was really crazy. It's interesting what people can program these days on consoles.

    Thanks for the comments!
