After the frenzy around the final character reveal for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we're now in the home stretch before Sora drops and concludes the DLC and updates for the iconic platform fighter. It's a big deal for those that have devoted a lot of time and, indeed, money to the game, while for the rest it's a bit of a toss up as to whether or not to drop money on the Kingdom Hearts hero.

As one perspective, this scribe played the game a lot in the first 3-4 months after release, but fell away as online play could sometimes be rather laggy and, probably the bigger reason, most players were too good. Practice makes perfect, yes — git gud and all that — but after a few dozen hours and a lot of fun it was time to play other games. It was a great purchase and is a nice part of the collection, but there's been no personal motivation to go back even as the multiple fighter passes and additions have rolled in.

On the other side, though, Smash Bros. remains a big part of the weekly gaming schedule for a lot of players. We have members of the NL team that play in a lot of lunch hours, and the excitement around character reveals has shown that each new addition has a large and eager audience. And why not? Smash Bros. remains a hugely enjoyable game, whether you're a chilled out button spamming player or a well practiced and skilled fighter.

If you've been all-in on the Smash Bros. DLC you may have spent pretty much the retail price all over again, especially if you dipped in on Mii Costumes. In terms of the main content there have been two Fighter Passes combining for 11 characters and their stages / music; there's been a lot.

So, which sort of Smash Bros. player are you? Did you fall away like this scribe, or have you been following the game's updates and DLC over the past couple of years? Let us know in the polls and comments below!
