I’d agree though, for general comsumption from the populance, 3D games probably stand a lot better chance at keeping their attention. They may get someone nostolgic by seeing some people play ST, but people don’t keep tuning in for nostolgia’s sake. People watch Poker in the numbers they do, because a lot of people play poker, sadly a show showing real kids fighting Pokemon against each other would relate to more people than people playing ST.
The only 2D game that may have a shot is GG because of how it could possibly crossover with the anime fans. (Though then you’d almost need coverage to show up on Cartoon Network or something, lol.)
Anyway, any interest in the fighting game community is good, even if it means that games like Tekken are in the forefront. (Which is no knock to tekken, I like tekken.)
