5. Super Smash Bros. New Characters (3DS/Wii U)
Today, it may be a bit strange to think of a competitive game that goes without any changes. Most developers support games with new stages, characters, and balance tweaks well into a game’s lifespan and yet, Nintendo is rather new to it. Super Smash Bros represents some of Nintendo’s first steps into the world of ongoing support for their games.
In 2015, Nintendo released a survey asking players to vote for what characters they wanted to be added to the Super Smash Bros. roster. Players jumped at the opportunity to suggest some of the community’s wildest ideas and to ask for old favorites like Lucas, Mewtwo, and Roy. In the end, seven characters were added to the game, including some rather unexpected fighters like Bayonetta and Cloud. Sadly, paying $5+ for a single character is questionable as far as ethics are concerned. But Bayonetta.
