Nintendo has made so many games, products and franchises over the years. It's hard to point to any one of them and say "this is their greatest work."
But I believe I've found it, and more importantly why Smash Bros. is Nintendo's greatest franchise.

Well I do agree that smash is huge the one nitpick with your review I had is the fact that I do not believe it is bigger than mortal Kombat. if you walk up to a random person and say you know that one fighting game most of the time they will instantly think of mortal Kombat. and that just goes to show how truly big mortal Kombat is you could probably walk up to someone and ask them something like you know that one fighting game and they would think of it

I think doomguy can be put in supers smash bros. nintendo will do is put m rating in super smash bros. and put the whole mortal kombat crew in smash bros. and the final smashes will be more bloody than usual

If we can't get Waluigi in Smash, then maybe we can get him in COD.

I love subspace emissary. It’s a shame it’s not as popular. Smash is how I learned about most Nintendo games. It’s a genius IP to serve as a gateway to other ones

Literally genius! Nobody can deny it, the best franchise to date! Microsoft and Sony still need proper collab games themselves and MS is going to need about 10 new IPs and Sony will have to do something other than PS Allstars (even though it was actually fun, sadly it's legacy died shortly after coception)

Smash bros is a cool series. I think its fine that melee's your least favourite in the series, ultimate is a disappointing game to me compared to the rest of the series, we cant all agree on everything when its something as subjective as video games

Funny story. 1st time I ever played this game was on n64 when i was a kid. I went to a party at my pastor’s house. She had 2 sons around my age. They had friends over that evening. And those boys kicked my ass In this game all night long. I went home with my parents that night in shame. Great party though!

I think Halo is 100 percent the best franchise ever and in my opinion is even more recognizable than Super Smash Bros. Maybe I'm biased because I started a life of gaming with Halo and COD but the storytelling and simple gameplay compared to smash (I'm assuming I have actually never played it) is superior. You constantly make connections to old Halo games in your reviews, but I have never once seen you talk about Smash Bros. Anyway prove me horribly wrong if you want or whatever but thanks for reading this!

Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for Break the Targets Edit: what if Microsoft tried to have a 3D arena brawler that has their franchises collaborate in the same sense of Smash Brothers? Imagine having Master Chief and Marcus (from Gears of War) showing down in a colosseum and you can chose whether you’d like to play them in the way they’re meant to be, or more like Call of Duty (for certain characters). Or how about Steve from Minecraft, being able to destroy the arena and build himself a wall or something (maybe even have anyone he defeats die and have their weapons be usable by Steve), or a Sea of Thieves character with Dizzy’s hat and shouting “Yeehaw” every time got a kill.

Your opinion may be smash brothers, but I prefer Nintendo's classic platformers. Mario, Donkey Kong, etc etc. "Oh you only can name two? You're not a TRUE Nintendo fan!!!1!" Yeah, no, I'm not. But I like platformer games. Reminds me of a simpler time, playing alllll those flash games online. I just like platformers, it pleases my monkey brain that I can play something so simple and be rewarded. I'm bad at smash so yeah it's not the highest on my list. I just really like the coin noises and all that stuff. It's the same science as a loot box but it comes with the game. I am a simple man with simple likes.
