I'm extremely disappointed the king of popoffs Pokchop is not on this list. Hell, his entire match vs Real Law is an 18 minute popoff.

Smash is a fighting game and has a community so therefore is part of the fgc. There’s no need to seperate it from the “fgc.” Respect the people who have worked so hard to make it into the fighting game that we all love and treat us like equals for once.
Justin Perez (7 months ago)
smash community is very different from the fgc. Very few people who play smash know the figureheads of the FGC such as John Choi, Alex Valle, Yipes etc. And same thing goes for the FGC, outside of the "Gods", member within the FGC know nothing about smash. There is very little overlap among player bases. This is the major reason for the divide, Leffen being one of the rare instances where someone can be dominant in both communities.
Eats (7 months ago)
blank a lot of people do actually?🤔
Denzel Rozier (7 months ago)
Friendly reminder that EVO and plenty of definitions of the genre say otherwise. Smash is a fighting game. It may not be traditional, but it's a fighting game nonetheless. And don't say "it's a party game". Games can fall into multiple genres, which Smash does.

frankly, no one cares.

goateeguy11221122 (10 months ago)
I'm mad at how badly this video misrepresents a player I respect. Axe is doing nothing like "rubbing it in" Silentwolf's face. He gets his energy from the crowd and shows a ton of respect to his opponents. See that hug he gives SW at the end? The set had been extremely close up until that point and that's Axe acknowledging it. This video shows no understanding of the narratives behind the clips and spends too much time narrating instead of letting the clips speak for themselves. The made-up story they tell about it is also way more generic and forgettable. Soulless. This is what makes people worry about going esports instead of staying grassroots.

Why smash is not a part of FGC?
UrInternetGF (4 months ago)
They've always kinda been two seperate things, I think the closest they are to being the same is just the fact that smash tourneys are also hosted at these events. Beyond that the two communities mostly stick to their groups.

I wish you'd included ESAM's win over Ally at Civil War. Hype and creativity are definitely important, but the cinematic quality of ESAM's pop-off, owing just as much to the cameraman's presence of mind, is something so rarely seen.

Where is S2J waving his chair around when he beat ice? When he beat M2K at the same tournament, everyone in the crowd had a chair and was waving it.
Guy Lloyd (1 year ago)
Wait a second... I just realized that the title says "FGC and Smash Bros History"... Do y'all really not consider Smash to be a part of the fighting game community..? Seriously, lmao.. you could've just removed the extra part with Smash and had the title be that but no, there has to be a distinction..
petersz (9 months ago)
.. you know smash players or fans Will jump in .. even if its not to comment on it 🤔. And it is also a great clickbait title
Alexis Kai (11 months ago)
Guy Lloyd because even with existing rivalries between the fgc games/communities they all agree smash is not an FG. I think the same but it has to be somewhere.

Duv Jones (7 months ago)
Smash and the general FGC have a rather bizarre history. The long story short is that they are not the same community despite the MANY similarities between the genres of the 2D fighter and the platforming fighter. This is signified one simple fact, the two communities have separate tournament circuits... Evo (or APEX) happens to be one of the few places that the communities meet in one place, other than those few (and there are others that I have yet to mention like Canada Cup) the circuits don't interest at all. The same can be said for the players, few from Smash transition to a 2D/3D fighter and I have yet to hear of an FGC player that has moved into smash full time.

Chris Cha (1 year ago)
Shows how little research they really did... Calling Axe, probably one of the humblest players in the community, one to pop off arrogantly. Called Evo, "Evil"... Like, at least try to sound convincing....
Dominik K (1 year ago)
all they want to do is rub it in their face as deeply as possible? what? did we watch the same footage? axe was super happy, but he kept it really respectful. no need to twist the facts for the sake of sensationalism.

Freddie Wompton (9 months ago)
Just so we're clear. A game in which you "Beat up other character" does not make it a fighting game. By that logic, every hack n' slash ever made is also a fighting game. A fighting game has very tight concepts and rules to them, which do no apply to Smash, to be frank.
HD Vision (10 months ago)
Wow you're argument got completely destroyed lol
itz_me (11 months ago)
razrsrealm The only one who seems like an autist, is you. You have no arguments despite someone telling you, that it is not a fighting game. It is not a traditional fighter, true. But a platform fighter. You can not argue with that. Next time if you argue with someone you should stop throwing insults at their face and instead get your arguments straight.
razrsrealm (11 months ago)
Sorry, still not a fighting game. I don't mind the game smash, but you smelly autists can stay very far away from the fgc. Sakurai said so, Harada said so. Making bank off of your retarded delusions doesn't mean you're right lol.
itz_me (11 months ago)
In Super Smash Bros. Melee for the Nintendo GameCube you beat up other Nintendo characters. So it is a game where you fight your oppononet. Simply put: It is a fighting game. Any game where you beat people up is in fact a fighting game. Even "Gang Beasts" is technically a fighting game. We don't modify the game in tournaments. We had to add an actual good training mode (with 20XX). We use the base game in tournaments. We change the rules ingame to get a balanced recreatable competitive environment. No items, no stage hazards. You sound like one of those FGC-elitist, who "defend" their precious genre with all their might not realising that opening up their mind can improve the community as a whole, because if you treat fighting games which are not SF 2.0 like shit, this community will not grow at all. It is true that Smash was not meant for competition but this has changed. With Smash 4 we get balance patches and even proper 1v1 online action. Looks like they are seeing that both casual and competitive players enjoy the game. And I bet you enjoy it as well. Stop being so ignorant towards other games and communities.

I think most pop offs are subconscious and just in the moment, not necessarily trying to insult the other player directly
powerowl2120 (4 months ago)
Any athlete who's worked with their soul to achieve a stussy ass victory will pop off, fining or judging them for that is retarded. And I consider high level game players to be athletes, because it requires the same amount of dedication if not more since you aren't held back physically, so the meta evolves much quicker therefore you have to put more time in. And this is coming from a sports dude who cant play fighting games for shit, I just respect the dedication and hard work of these dudes. And the crowd pops are the greatest things ever
CXX Hacksignify (8 months ago)
Yeah, I've popped off before. It's just the adrenaline getting released. Just pure joy.
