Time to time, Smashboards covers notable Youtube content creators who make videos on Super Smash Bros. and its community. There’s a lot of great content out there that focuses on competitive play, speculation, modding, information, reactions, and more. Today, we will look at a content creator who really doesn’t need any introduction and, in particular, a video he just published. This person is none other than fighting game enthusiast Maximilian “Maximilian Dood” Christiansen.
Maximilian Dood, aka Max, is known for his love of traditional fighting games such as Street Fighter, King of Fighters, and Mortal Kombat. He is also a fan of Super Smash Bros. and has dedicated many videos to the series. Max has recently released a new video focusing on Smash in what he coins “the Golden Age of Smash” which has caught the community’s attention.
Warning: The video contains offensive language.
It’s easy to agree with Max that we’re in the golden age of the series. Everyone is back, and that’s something that we might not ever see again. We have our fan-favorites like Ridley, King K. Rool, and Inklings, and we have characters many thought were impossible like Joker, Banjo & Kazooie, and Terry. There are more songs, stages, items, and modes than you can shake a stick at, and there are new Spirit Events appearing such as the Trials of Mana event. Plus, we are getting future downloadable content with the Fighter’s Pass Vol 2. We are possibly in the best timeline for Smash, and it’s amazing to see. Sure, people get hung up on characters they want not getting in, and people get upset over technical issues like net code or frame data. That’s to be expected with any game and its community though. However, the proof speaks for itself that Smash has one of the greatest rosters in the history of gaming and fittingly celebrates not only the history of Nintendo, but the history of gaming as a whole. It’s great to see Smash recognized for this by not only the Smash community, but the entire gaming community. Anyways, like Max said, let’s enjoy the ride because we might not ever get this again.
