Video Game Awards 2015: Best Local Multiplayer

Although local multiplayer has been fading away for years now, there are still a few games out there that proudly display the fun of playing games with your friends all being in the same place. There is something to be said about the fun to be had when your opponents are sitting right next to you, and seeing their frustration from their losses first hand.

 

Winner: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

Super Smash Bros. has always been among the best party games out there, and the Wii U edition is the best in the series. It does an insurmountably better job at balancing its roster than any previous entry. Better still, it caters to both of Super Smash Bros’ diehard fanbases.

For those who want to experience the party game madness of Super Smash Bros. in all its glory, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has you covered with the best stages yet in the series, a crazy arsenal of items, Pokemon and Assist Trophies, and even some boss monsters thrown in for good measure. And this time, you can have up to eight players join the fray, which represents Smash Bros. at its most insane.

For those seeking a more competitive fighter, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has you covered with ‘Omega stages,’ which strip the game of its more chaotic elements, and a varied and balanced roster that’s more fleshed-out than any Smash Bros. before.

Whether its two-on-two competitive matches or eight-player free-for-all chaos, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U covers all the bases and guarantees a fun time, every time.

Runner-up: Mario Kart 8

    I am by no means a competitive Smash player; I like my Smash Bros as chaotic as possible. Still, I am very glad Sakurai smartly ackowledged his brainchild’s dual nature (party and competitive) and gave plenty of options to both fanbases.

      I’m very glad Sakurai acknowledged both of his fanbases (now if only he could acknowledge Dixie Kong’s fanbase…), and although I’m not technically a competitive player, I have had a blast honing my skills against other players in For Glory matches.

        Fingers crossed. If Sakurai will really have a smaller role in future entries, maybe we’ll get a little more DK, and a whole lot less Kid Icarus (yeah, I’m still mad about Dark Pit).
