Really? because my issue is the lag. It's HORRIBLE. Brawl's gameplay is ridiculously replayable. People STILL play Melee, after all, 7 years later. Brawl could have been Wii's Halo, but its online unfortunately sucks balls.
Mario Kart Wii has seen more success, and I'm sure part of this is the tournaments and the different online modes and options, but for me it's honestly more because it freakin' WORKS generally well, ya know?
I played this game online a couple months after it came out and it was fun enough. Tetris Party I only just got about two months ago and found online matches pretty easily...
I admit, it's kind of hard. I kind of wish games like this advertised, like, "gathering" times when they encouraged people, in-game, to get online to play. Just an idea, but I think it could work pretty well.
Making a meager living selling games, writing about games, and writing fiction.
Can't complain about that!
