This is really tough for me.

(13) Great Bay (Melee) vs. (12) Fountain of Dreams (Melee)

(47) Smashville (Brawl) vs. (3) Hyrule Castle (N64)

The Great Bay has always been such a favorite of mine. The rare representation of Majora's Mask and one of my favorite locales from that game... versus one of the nicest Kirby stages ever. Still, I have to go with the Great Bay.

As for Smashville versus Hyrule Castle,... as unique as Hyrule Castle kind of is from a design standpoint. I will trade in the early-stage-design for a refined, colorful, and well represented package that is Smashville. Smashville was the first Animal Crossing stage and it does a great job of representing the series and being beautiful while doing it.

Hmm, first one is kind of tough for me because neither really stand out to me. I sort of side with Great Bay because Fountain of Dreams is just Kirby's Battlefield, aka a clone of one of the most boring courses in the game, and also Majora's Mask is awesome, but I also find Great Bay sort of awkwardly designed and I never quite find my rhythm there. Still, I guess it's the one I prefer of the two.

Definitely prefer Hyrule Castle, the first "big" stage before "big" stages got TOO big, over Smashville. Nothing happens in Smashville.

Ugh, the first matchup was a super tough call. Those are two of my favorite stages. While I love the visual and audio aesthetics of Fountain of Dreams, Great Bay is the better overall stage.

For the second one, well, tornadoes rule.

(13) Great Bay (Melee) vs. (12) Kirby's Battlefield (Melee)

(47) Animal Crossing Final Destination (Brawl) vs. (3) Hyrule Castle (N64)

I actually really like all of these levels, but my votes go to the ones that aren't just a take on the Final Destination/Battlefield design. I will say that Fountain of Dreams is probably my favourite of the "boring" stages though. It's got great music and visual design.

That said, I miss Great Bay! There's no better feeling than bouncing somebody under the hut and into the smashy depths.

@ploot Pretty much my thoughts on the stages exactly. Smashville is just so plain, and it's too bad Fountain of Dreams didn't have a layout as interesting as its visual and music. Hyrule Castle is the quintessential Smash stage for me.

I love both of the first two stages! Argh don't make me choose! I guess I'll pick Great Bay only for how unique it is. And Smashville is boring, but the castle was a ton of fun.
