TLDR but im gonna give my super drawn out opinion on this game in a obscure sorta vague way…
Have fighting games finally come full circle? And has this self entitled “nerd” community gone to far?
I mean really think about it. This new “hype” blazblue cross battle thing, has 2…TWO attack main attack buttons. We have gone from the very first days of street fighter with 2 buttons, all the way to 6… now back to 2. We have systems in games with people doing visually ‘crazy’ ‘insane’ 'creative" combos, sets up from players who wouldnt even be able to do a low forward into super in a game like ST. We have 2 button reversals, almost no command variety what so ever.
Ive said it before but there is this ridiculous idea to enjoy a game you have to be the star quarter back of the team. If YOU cant throw the hail marry pass the game sucks and is to hard. But what happens when the team you play for everyone can throw the winning touchdown? The breakaway goal in overtime? What moral victory do you even get as a player anymore?
Theres this idea and thought that many nerds have, as humans do in general, that they are “special” at times for no reason. As games got more popular, “nerd” felt threatened when they realized not just cliche looking nerds were the ones that were good at video games. And ive said this many times before when I was going to tournaments and anyone can look at me im sure. I was surprised to find out that most stereotypical nerds… SUCK at video games.
So with games being more popular, the internet only getting bigger and bigger we see a larger outcry from these “nerds”. Like “im the real nerd! My opinion matters the most! These games are to hard dont listen to these other people that are better at me in these games. Because im your REAL consumer base”.
I mean even on some level look at the secret characters in this tag game. Its just ninjas with big boobs. And thats cool, I use to get off to video games. But I mean really just think about that, of all the different series they could have taken things from. Obviously they are gonna have to make new sprites…they COULD have made new GG sprites then if thats the case right? But they picked ninja girls with big boobs so they can have more things to jack off to instead of going into the real world and see that being a “nerd” doesnt make you special anymore. Because lots of people are nerds.
You only have to look at this new DBFZ game as well and look at all these “nerds” who tried to flag my youtube saying I stole stuff and tried to make sites not post my videos and all sorts of excuses posting fake quotes of me saying things on twitter and discord blah blah like that as proof that “nerds” cant handle people they dont deem as nerdy as them doing things they cant do. And its ruining fighting games. I mean dude ya you can do crazy stuff in this game, but its fucking 2 buttons bro. Like what the fuck has the community done to games. Like you guys want to play a beat mania game or something as a fighting game just memorizing what buttons you mash in what spot/vise versa its just crazy to me.
