I think my obsession with Smash Bros. is winding down. Having all the characters and stages unlocked takes a big part of the motivation to keep playing away. Not having a serious number of serious players on hand also takes away part of the allure Melee had back in 2001. I still enjoy reading the little text along with all the trophies, and seeing what CDs and stickers I can find, but I don’t think I’ll be playing it for hours on end like I have this past week.
