See, these are the type of arguments that hold us, the fighting game community, back. Knowing that the scene is pretty much struggling to stay alive with whatever games that are currently being played, there will always be ppl that don’t like certain fighters and are quick to criticize the game. No wonder the scene here in the US feels like it’s dying.
Now, i’m not a DOA fan by any means, as i only casually enjoy the series, but i think that we should at least be greatful for the fact that it is the “in” thing now and the Xbox online scene is thriving on it.
Sure, DOA isn’t the most respectable fighter…heck, i think it’s scrubby also. However-- we can’t be too critical on it…i mean, honestly, this popularity shit won’t last and yall know it. DOA4 will get it’s shine on until SF2 Turbo hits Xbox Live Arcade…so just let that game get it’s glory for now.
OK…so what i’m trying to say is, just be respectful for the fact that it’s there…creating/reintroducing a community to the world of fighting games once again. I mean, it doesn’t hurt the community.
Just because it’s in doesn’t mean you have to automatically dick-ride and like it.
I’m just gonna respect the fact that it’s the current mainstream fighter and let it help the scene out a bit.
That’s my 2 cents.
