Was Super Smash Bros. Melee a commercial failure? I ask this, because the GameCube was a Commercial Failure (It even lost to the Xbox, which was a newcomer)

>> No.8110226

The other question I have is would you call Melee obscure, because it was on the GameCube, which was the least successful system of that Generation?

>> No.8110234

a thread died for this

>> No.8110236

It is the only Smash game that has outsold the Mario Kart game on it's respective platform

>> No.8110249

Pretty sure melee was the best selling game on the gamecube

>> No.8110289

How is Melee not obscure and a Commercial Failure? It was on the GameCube, which was dead last in that Generation. It got beaten out by the Xbox and the PS2

So how much of a flop was Melee? The GameCube was the least successful system of its generation, so I imagine Melee was a flop and the second most obscure Smash game next to the Wii U Smash

Dreamcast is fondly remembered by those graced by its presence and it nearly outsold the Gamecube despite only being in production for 2.5 years. Try again Nintentoddlers.

>> No.8111309

Relative to the disappointing GameCube sales it was pretty successful. I have an original copy but the box is a little damaged.

>> No.8111561

It was the bestselling game of its console and everyone played it, even people who didn't own Gamecube. It was weird that the developer thought it didn't appeal to casuals enough despite being King Casual Game of the generation.

Think of like this, 6 games saved nintendo from utter destruction.

1) super mario 64
2) ocarina
3) animal crossing
4) smash
5) dk 64
6) mario party / paper mario

those 6 right there WERE the game cube, every other game is a filler episode.

A game can do very well despite the hardware itself not doing well overall. Why is this a hard concept to grasp? Just because half the 1st world owned PS2s doesn’t mean that each of those people bought Metal Gear Solid 2.

>> No.8114027

Why are you capitalizing "commercial failure"? It's not a proper noun.

>> No.8115481

Melee continues to be played to this day and is pretty mainstream as a game. It's, if anything, not only the most successful Gamecube game, transcending and outliving the console that birthed it, but the second most successful of the Smash franchise, considering it's influence in gaming culture.

i once prank called Xbox support saying that my Xbox One doesn't play Xbox ONE games, and I said yeah I got games for the original Xbox from 2001 and it won't play on the Xbox One. Then the lady on the other end told me that the 360 was the first Xbox

It was kind of a disappointment, but no, it lived to the end and Nintendo still makes consoles.

if that's true, why does Beyond Melee want Melee diehards to "accept change" for their retards decisions?
>thinking the game that considers PNG and board game battles as content is better
back then we could throw as many pokeballs as much we wanted, single player that didn't suck, had trophies made from scratch, and a good competitive scene on top of that.

nigger, there's a website containing thousand of filehosts to Brawl mods since the 2010s

You can have commercial failures and still keep your company on float. This isn't a poker game were you put all in, anon. Just ask google or nitendo's previous and most recent failures

Melee was the best selling GCN game of its period and is the 3rd best selling Smash, in-between 64 and the 3DS version of Smash.
>The GameCube was the least successful system of its generation
compare to what? the fucking Dreamcast? I also guaranteed GCN had better variety of software sales compared to Xbox, which was pretty much a Halo machine.

Even if you go just by the numbers(which already makes it decently successful) you have to remember that it was a group party game. People who didn't own a gamecube would play these games because their friend had it and they'd go play it in a group.
This is why zoomers who look at the numbers of sales don't comprehend, growing up in the N64/GC era meant you'd hvae friends groups where at least one of you owned a nintendo console. I never had an N64 as a kid but I had a friend who did, so me and 2 or 3 other friends who didn't either knew the games by hanging out. I had games they didn't have and vice versa since we were 9 year olds who only had a handful of games.

>> No.8121701

Maybe he meant N64?
