Super Smash Brothers Melee. A game where you and your friends all choose Nintendo characters and then beat the snot out of each other. Sounds like a blast, right? Well, it is... if you're winning. But if you're losing, it's a whole different ball game. Imagine this scenario: you and a couple of buddies are duking it out. It's you and one buddy versus the other and a level 9 computer. You slug the computer enough to remove it from competition, but then you keep getting pulled into the fray while your two buddies have a duel. You try to peacefully mind your own business and move to the opposite end of the arena, but you still end up getting caught in the crossfire. Whenever I am playing this game, I have offer-up rage. I get so frustrated getting attacked while I'm waiting for the titans to duke it out. Okay, so maybe I should go help my buddy. I usually play as Samus from Metroid Prime, and so what really tends to annoy me is when I am standing off to the side charging up my weapon for a massive strike, when suddenly, I get landed on by Fox. Or Ganondorf. Or Falco. Or Marth. Or Bowser. Or worst of all, the ultimate humiliation: Jigglypuff! I tell you what, when my opponent picks Jigglypuff, I tend to get more violent offscreen than on. I've never caused any physical harm yet, but one of these days, I just might. So if you're ever playing Super Smash with me, just don't choose to play as Jigglypuff and we'll all be a lot happier!
