I got over platform games like Mario, Kirby, and Donkey Kong years ago. Super Smash Bros. really shows that Mario is way more than rated E. You can spend hours playing this game. Yes, you may go at eachothers throat playing this very addictive game. My biggest complaint is that this game is on the Gamecube. Everyone knows the Gamecube doesn't support online play. If it did, this would deffenitly be the best game I own. If you haven't played the game you shoud really rent it, maybe even buy it.
