    History of Mr. Game & Watch

    I just recently came across this video on YouTube about the origins of Game & Watch's moveset, and I thought it was definitely worth sharing. I've always known Game & Watch was an important part of Nintendo's history, and I've always felt his inclusion in Melee was a nice addition to the roster. But aside from that, I admit I really didn't know much more about him.

    However, I know there are many of you who aren't as welcoming. Whether you felt his character is simply too old, or whether you felt his moves were a little too eccentric, I know there are those of you who had hoped he'd be left out of Brawl (for the spoiler-free, I'm not confirming whether he's in or out). I thought I would put this thread in the Brawl subforum, since it's a place dedicated to all things Smash.

    That being said, I thought I would post the following videos, put together by CrappyCaptureDevice and uploaded to YouTube. It does a great job of illustrating where each of his moves came from, with clips from the original games. Please enjoy, because I think this is some great info.

    Spoiler Alert!

    If you like these, I would definitely recommend checking out some of his other videos. I think you'll learn a few things that'll help you appreciate some of the finer points of this franchise. I know I did..

    Mr Game & Watch is pretty much the most original character on the roster. Those who think that he should not be on the roster then complain about clones are hypocrites.

    He's awesome.

    Yeah, I just recently found out they had released those games in a package. Maybe at some point down the road, I'll look for it and give it a go. I've never played any of the originals..

    Ahhh man... I use to play the one in the first video, the firefighters catching Mr.G&W, when I was a kid, and it was the original one too. That video brought back good ol' classic memories

    I think I'm gonna buy the old one I use to have off ebay, to play it again.
