Melee is pretty popular you say? All remaining levels in this bracket are from Melee, with only one actually originating from the N64. Perhaps this is a trend we will see continually.
Lives to Smash Another Day (10) Brinstar (Melee/Brawl) (11) Corneria (Melee/Brawl) (33) Kingdom II (Melee) (5) Yoshi's Island (N64/Melee)
Close Call Award: Yoshi's Island (N64/Melee) made it by a single vote. The rest were a bit more spread out, which disappoints because I feel that Luigi's Mansion deserves better overall in this poll series.
No Hope Award: Summit simply had no hope. The Ice Climbers and their stages never receive as much love as their hardcore fans would like. Summit was doomed to plummet.
Be sure to vote in the currently active bracket poll! One more day left!
It's not my favorite stage, but I like the Metal Gear stage because it feels unique in that you have this space on the bottom that there isn't much of a threat of being knocked off the sides. Kind of like the 'bottle' stage I made in the stage designer. Whereas Yoshi just kind of blurs into Battlefield / Smashville / Fountain of Dreams / etc.
I suppose I forgot the clouds existed. In general though I don't find the Battlefield-like designs very interesting. My favorite stages are um... actually I've been thinking of doing a top 10 Smash Bros. stages list. Would be interesting to me too because I don't necessarily have a mental list in my head like I do for Mario Kart and such.
Off the top of my head I'd say WarioWare, Bridge of whatever it's called, F-Zero, SMW Yoshi's Island, Mario Kart, um... probably some huge ones I'm forgetting.
That Metroid stage where Kraid flips it around is cool. Forget which one that is.
