Mini-Article: Is there a wrong way to Brawl?

A short article, but I feel it was something that needed saying.

If there's one thing that seems to divide the Super Smash Bros. fan base, it's whether or not to use items. Some people prefer the chaos of random items, while others think that the game better enjoyed with nothing but the fighters on the stage. Personally, I belong to the former group, loving the insanity of Bob-ombs and Smash Balls popping up here and there. Am I wrong? Are the other guys wrong? Are we both wrong? Could both sides be right?

Really, it all comes down to what the player prefers. If you're the kind of person who prefers to carefully calculate every move, leaving nothing to chance and allowing naught but skill to determine the outcome of the match, then you're best off without items.

On the other hand, you may be a bit more chaotic in your battling. Perhaps you prefer to let not only the skill of the players determine the winner, but also allowing the variable of luck to become a factor. If this sounds like your style, then you'll probably enjoy playing with items more.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the kind of game that's practically impossible to play incorrectly. It all boils down to what you prefer. Sora Ltd. made it so you could tweak each match until it was just right for a reason. There is no such thing as a wrong way to Brawl, as well as there is no one definitive way to play it right.

So go ahead, folks. Grab your controller of choice, pop in that dual-layered disc of glory, and play the game the way it was meant to be played: Your way.
