Smash

verb; clipping
To play the video game Super Smash Brothers. ’
 
‘To smash’ is used among friends as a short and adoring way to refer to playing Super Smash Brothers, possibly the most popular social video game in college. For example, ‘Bro, I need a study break, this linguistics project is long. Let’s smash.’
Etymology : Clipping from, ‘To play Super Smash Brothers’. It also looks like zero-derivation due to the use of the word smash to mean something entirely different than conventional definitions.
