The two most popular gamecube games go head to head in an awesome battle on a silent forum. In your opinion, which was better, and why? You have 30 seconds.

01-05-2008, 05:44 AM
Uh oh. It's impossible to decide. They are both amazing games which you could play over and over and over and over and never get tired of. I couldn't pick if you put a gun to my head.

I've yet to play RE4 so I'm goona go with SSBM. It'll definitely last you longer and plus it's one of the best mulitplayer games ever.

That's true but RE:4 is long and also has extreme replay value. You don't get to shoot people in SSMB.

They are also tied for me.

Resident Evil 4 is a long, action-packed survival horror that never gets old, I've played through it about 30 times and I know every inch of the game. SSBM is a legendary multiplayer game that isn't even online and it's unbelievably awesome.

As much as I loved RE 4, not to mention I spent the longest time on a game in one sitting with this one, I have to go with Melee. All the good times and great memories playing Melee with friends is priceless.

while melee is a badass game-- RE4 is without a doubt the best game ever made.

02-18-2008, 10:06 PM
Yes, the memories with SSBM are priceless. All those days spent at my cousins house battling it out with four players can't be beat. Hell, I even play the first one for N64 cause its a legend too.

I gotta go get Brawl some time but I need a wii. o_o;

02-18-2008, 10:08 PM
Both great games but i will have to go with ssmm just because the multiplayer on it is so much fun

02-18-2008, 11:35 PM
super smash bros melee without a doubt, its hella fun, i remember in RE4 those monsters (not the spanis ones) but the ones that are churchy or what ever, it sounded like they were saying fandago, it was funny XD

Greetings from the Turok forum guys. ;)

If I might add, the sequels to both these games are probably gonna be equally awesome again.

02-21-2008, 06:20 AM
Resident Evil 4 is the only good game in the series, and by far the best game on the Cube. I finished it 3 times in a row, including all the extra stuff. It's one of those rare games that I'll probably own forever. Plus,(puts on fire-proof coat) I never really liked Smash Bros.

04-15-2008, 05:27 AM
Resident Evil by far. Great story line, great gameplay, an all around amazing game. Plus, I don't care for smash bros that much..

04-15-2008, 05:31 AM
I have both and super smash has hours and hours and hours of more game time. Never gets boring.(only if you play a year strait.)

04-15-2008, 08:38 PM
I loved both games, but I would have to go with Melee. If not for the multiplayer than RE4 would definetly edge it out.

Awesome games no doubt....

06-11-2008, 09:46 PM
I liked SSBM because it had a lot of replay value that came even when playing with friends which i did a lot.

06-14-2008, 02:26 PM
I liked both SSM and RE4

But i picked RE4 that game was just amazing for its time and very well done and i played this game through several times and it never seemed to get boring

SSM on the other hand i loved aswell and was always a good game to crack out when some friends came over but in the end thats all it seemed to be good for after beating it

While RE4 on the other hand i played through several times and just seemed better 2 me

06-14-2008, 09:29 PM
SSBM. You can't get bored of it

06-14-2008, 11:47 PM
There both great games,but I think Resident Evil 4 put gamecube on the map.

06-21-2008, 06:55 AM
That is really tought to pick. I just can't pick one. I love both too much.

06-27-2008, 05:34 PM
Mellee IS ACE thats y i bought me 'Cube for 20 quid lol:woop::woop::woop:

08-24-2008, 05:08 AM
I like them both but i think i prolly spent more time on RE4. Those two games plus Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2:Echoes, and Twilight Princess are my top 5 for gamecube.

01-25-2009, 10:57 PM
Super Smash Bros!

02-07-2009, 04:21 AM
SSBM! I use to play that game for hours

02-07-2009, 04:32 AM
Well...personally I think RE 4 is one of the single greatest game experiences ever released on any platform in the history of games. That being said...take a look at what each game has meant to the industry since it's release.

I think it without question...without any type of argument whatsoever that RE 4 has influenced modern games and modern game design more than any other single game probably in 10 years. What has SSBM done? Nowhere that much. No disrespect...it is a fantastic experience and has limitless replayability...but it has an end to its ripples...while RE 4's ripples are still being felt.

3rd person survival shooter with stratospheric production values...

I voted for Resi 4 bcos its a better game... And one of the best games ever made IMO
I completed it loads of times and loved every minute of it.

But i have probably had more fun playing Smash Bros Melee..
That game is so funny when playing with family or friends.

Both great games, but in my opinion fun with friends beats most single player games.

07-14-2009, 09:01 AM
I had good times on SSBM for years, but I absolutely loved RE4. It was a totally different experience, there wasn't a game out that you could compare it to.

Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil 4

07-15-2009, 04:17 AM
Haven't played Resident Evil 4 so I got to go with Super Smash Bros. Melee.

08-26-2009, 11:35 AM
SSBM definitely. Now for the moment of shame. I could never get past that first zombie on RE4. I hit it, it bit me, I hit it, it bit me, I'm dead... Never found a gun or anything. Eventually took it and sold it to GameStop along with some other old games, and got 43 off of Assassin's Creed 2 when it comes out :)

08-30-2009, 05:01 PM
I'm a hardcore RE fan so RE4 is my choice on this one.
Never played SSBM but I did play the first and I own the third so they're pretty fun although they couldn't change my opinion on the poll.

Though both games are awesome (never played RE:4, but I watched my borther play it all the time and looked fun), but melee has to be my favorite from all the memories I had playing the game (like collecting all the trophies, completing the story modes with all characters, and unlocking every character)!

04-08-2010, 07:40 AM
RE 4 as a single player and SSB as multiplayer :woop:
What?! I have to pick one?!
...eh sorry but Wolf won't let me do that...yeah

05-15-2010, 07:14 AM
I love them both so much but I'm gonna have to go with RE4. Mostly because I'm better at it. XD But it also has surprisingly high replay value, which isn't always expected from survival horror, I suppose? Like I have seriously done so many runthroughs of RE4 and I'm STILL not sick of it.

05-20-2010, 06:08 PM
I never played RE4 for GC, but I had it for Wii...and while it was good, I think I'm gonna have to go with Super Smash Bros. Melee on this one. Nintendo definitely lucked out with whoever came up with that idea...genius.

06-02-2010, 06:19 PM
SSBM without a doubt. I have played this game for hours and hours with my friends.

10-13-2010, 07:48 AM
melee is probably in my top 3 games ever so im glad to see it on top:woop:

11-18-2010, 12:58 AM
SSBM. Wave Dashing will always be classic. Can't touch that short hop knee.

12-04-2010, 10:01 PM
Super Smash Bros Melee all the way!!!!!!!

01-09-2011, 02:23 AM
Resi 4 was probably the best gamecube game you can get.

01-15-2011, 01:30 AM
Loved Melee. Never played Resident Evil 4 so I can't really vote for that one.

04-25-2011, 01:20 AM
Both these games provided me wi endless hours of fun. I loved RE4 for it's thrill factor as well replay value but Melee beats it out. Nothing was better than playing it when having friends or during a party.

Melee: extremely technical at its most competitive while still being extremely fun, never getting boring. Only game I've ever played more than 600 hours of.

08-01-2011, 04:28 AM
hmm very hard to decide ive played both but i think ssbm could be better not sure why maybe because i love it more? lol

super smash bros melee all the way

05-20-2012, 03:06 AM
Super Smash beats Resident Evil anytime of day for sure.

05-20-2012, 03:17 AM
Super Smash Bros. Melee because Super Smash Bros. Melee.

06-02-2012, 10:41 PM
I've sunk so much time into SSBM so it really couldn't be anything else for me.

07-26-2012, 02:13 PM
Melee because it was more fun to play with friends. :drunk

Easily Resident Evil 4. The whole story, game play and I can remember playing it over and over and never got tired of it.

SSBM all the way. Had some great times back in the day with some all-nighters!

08-03-2012, 11:35 PM
definitely would be Super Smash Brothers Melee!
