Smash Bros. documentary discusses a game that was never designed to be played at a competitive level, and the community that grew around it East Point Pictures has put together a very awesome Super Smash Bros. documentary that discusses the community that grew around a game that was never designed to be played at a competitive level — mainly focusing on the 7 greatest players ever to play.

This is a 9-part series which covers the roots of the title, talking about how Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube was originally intended to be a party game, but grew into so much more.

The series weighs in at over 4 hours long, but it's broken down into several 20 to 30 minute segments which means even if you can't watch the entire thing in one sitting, Lord of the Rings style, you can break it up into more easily digestible parts.

The production quality and story telling here is rather strong, so if you're at all interested in the Smash scene, I'd highly recommend checking this out. Hit the jump to view all of the clips.
