I think that Melee is the more timeless game, and will have more people coming back to it for a long time. The game's over 15 years old at this point, but was still the smash game with the most entrants at the recent apex this year. It has a delicate metagame where many characters counter eachother and has developed over time. Regardless of this, new tech is still being discovered all the time, showing the timeless depth of the game. Project M wasn't at this year's apex, and the community already appears to be shrinking of this mod.

Melee has the competitive aspect and the tight, more stressful battles, but since the genral public is more focused on casual party games project m will have a higher appeal due to better gfx, more stages, and diff style of gameplay. However, personally, i can see myself replaying project m more due to continued updates and more permutations in character and stage choice

It's because of the competitive scene that these games are still alive -- Project M was crafted after melee, to create a similar experience, but doesn't quite match up to the speed and depth Melee had. Melee easily has the largest competitive scene of the two, and whenever a new game is released in the franchise, the casual players will move onto that game, because it will have the core gameplay that appeals to them; taking away from project m's timelessness. Melee also has a smartly chosen artstyle that compliments the gameplay.
