Where to even begin? Wait, we know. SSB Melee on the GameCube loses its place on this list to SSB Brawl for one simple reason: Brawl's introduction of third-party characters like the much-requested Sonic. Finally, Sega and Nintendo can face off and fight! If that wasn't enough, this Wii title features Solid Snake, a roster of 37 Nintendo characters, and "final smash" attacks that left us battling for hours on end.

YOU AUGHTA KNOW:
Designer Masahiro Sakurai said that Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima "practically begged" for Solid Snake to be included in SSB Melee. Hideo had to wait a game (and about seven years) to get his wish.
