I’m a full fledged VF nut for more than 10 years. First got hooked playing with Pai in VF3, then gradually moved on to Akira in VF4. It saddens me that a lot of other people want to play those easier, more flashy, cheap games like Tekken and Soul Calibur. I’ve always felt that VF had the best balance of any fighter that has ever existed, but the “casual” gamer can’t get behind it cuz it’s too difficult is such a lame excuse for laziness and wanting everything to be easy.
So i’ve been obsessing over a way to make VF more widely accepted by the masses. As I feel deep in my soul that nearly everyone would love this game if they just bothered to really give it a chance. So here’s my solution:
A widely publicized Virtua Fighter Tournament boasting a 5 figure prize. (e.g. $20,000) NOt controllers, not brand new gadgets. I’m talking CASH MONEY.
I seriously think that with enough publicity this could boost interest in VF over %200.
Theres a good chance that this could easily become a reality. (Company I work for might attempt to pursue this very thing. But I want to ensure that this will be a good endeavor.)
Do you honestly think it would work?
