DoA Central :: View topic - Easily Accessible, yet Hard to Master!
-“In the creation of Dead or Alive series as a whole, Itagaki took the best parts of Virtua Fighter(VF), while continuously making the game more accessible. He likened Virtua fighter to a traditional sushi bar, while Dead or alive was a sushi bar with beautiful women on roller skates. In other words, It has a similar foundation to that of Virtua fighter, but high octane. This translate to a game that is fast, furious, brutal, deep as well as being very accessible. This is something that fighters as a whole are trying to achieve.”
-“VF as a series have been very brilliant in the way it engages players in both the defensive and offensive play styles it present. There is no surprise in DOA taking this into its own and putting a ?twist? on it. This ?twist? the fighting game community scoffed at, yet you can see VF (even Tekken and Soul Calibur to an extent) implementing many of these ideas.”
-“Dead or Alive cannot be that bad, if the highest acclaimed fighter has been borrowing from it for the past 15 years. Please do not get me wrong, I am not bashing VF, or trying to make it look worthless.It’s a brilliant fighter and the Doa series owe its creation to it. I just want you the Doa community to realize what a great game we have. Despite all the problems we may see in it, It may not be problems when other fighters are implementing what we have taken advantage of for years.”
-“We have shown that we have a dedicated community, shown that our game is just as challenging as any other 3d fighter, and shown the world during Evo that we are bad ass mother fuckers.”
-“Is Doa4 the perfect 3D fighter? No, but is it pretty damn close? Yes.”
Virtuapai, you are a scrub of the highest order, goddamn. You really think DOA is nearly the perfect 3d fighter? Have you ever played Tekken? Tekken is vastly superior to DOA. Tekken has far more depth, unlike anything you can imagine. And the fact you even compared DOA to a masterpiece game like VF shows you are off your damn rocker. Fucking scrub, better keep your scrub ass at DOACentral, because the last thing SRK needs is a DOA loving scrub like you, scrub.
