Ready? We're ranking all Super Smash Bros. games from best to worst, including both official and fan-made games. Featuring different character rosters, advantages and game mechanics, the Smash games have evolved over the years, but fans will always stick to their favorites. What do you think is the best Super Smash Bros. game? 

While Super Smash Bros. Melee AKA SSBM was released in 2001, the Nintendo GameCube game is still one of the most popular games today, and commonly acclaimed as the "perfect accident." Developed by fans, Project M and Super Smash Flash allow players to select non-Nintendo characters, like Goku, Naruto, and Luffy. Other good SSB games include the Wii U version and the original Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64.

Vote up the best Super Smash Bros. game in the series, and get hyped for the December 7 release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.
