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.

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.
