Things were simpler in 1999. Everyone was worried about an apocalyptic computer clock error, people were obsessed with Tang and talking animal movies, and video game ads could still reach a mass market via television. And so it was that Super Smash Bros. initially introduced itself to a generation of gamers, four frolicking, bobble-headed mascots beating each other to the tune of "Happy Together" by The Turtles. The popular fighting game kicked off almost a decade of sequels with an ever expanding roster that includes the best characters not just from Nintendo but also the wider video game industry. 

So, let's look back on the game that started it all - is Super Smash Bros. one of the best games of all-time?
