In the harsh cold of a snow covered NYC, I was waiting for my bus and I happened to encounter two teenage boys talking about one's 3DS. I glanced over and saw one was playing Smash and couldn't help but challenge him to a match. Turns out both of them had a 3DS, so all three of us played. There's nothing like the feeling of encountering an unknown opponent, especially in person. Out of respect, I picked Zelda first and whooped the both of them soundly. We played a few more matches after we got in the bus and I used some of my other characters, but even with both of them working together, I was able to win. When I told them I've been playing Smash since the first game, they responded with: "You mean Melee?"
I think that broke my heart more than if I had actually lost... T_T
