This is a very interesting topic indubitably, the smash community is indeed toxic but how does it differ from other fandoms? Depending on some look at it this could be a good thing. One reason is everything has its pros and cons, after all it's not perfect. There's a saying that goes don't fix what ain't broke and if it isn't broken then that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. Regardless of the matter there's a deeper meaning within the community that needs to be exposed.
In today's society it's safe to say that the gaming industry has boomed better than ever. Not to mention it has become extremely marketable to the point where it can provide potential careers. One reason in particular why is because graphics have become more of a priority than anything else. If you're not convinced check out literally any game that's being released and you'll see that the overall consumers prefer a game with "Good" or "Realistic" graphics, not to mention developers spend more time on it. Although this is the case there are other factors of a good game, one would be Sribblenauts (2009) by 5th Cell.
