So I was playing Brawl today at school, and I find it amazing to see how many people insist on no items, and only choose Final Destination for the stage, It's like they're cutting the fun out of the game. I realize that's how tournaments are played, but this isn't a tournament, it's recreational gaming. What's the big stigma against items? They add a nice twist to the game. So what if a proximity bomb spawns near your enemy, it's not that hard to dodge. Same with Pokeballs and assist trophies. If you have enough skill, you should be able to overcome these temporary advantages.
When I was playing I chose random and got diddy kong, who I'm abysmal as, so my entire goal for the match was to do the face hugging hump move. I sang this song the entire time. It was fun.
