Well, ive been thinking to my self, sense im going to be buildiny/buying a mame/DC/Ps2/jamma Arcade Machine.
How long will they last? Will people be as enthusiastic about it then as they are now? When it dies what will happen, will people just let go and give up or will people look for new ways to get better?
Why do people give up and stop playing a game just because someone is better than them? For example people not getting into marvel because justin couldnt be uncrowned, and to my knowlage this was his last year? Does this mean MvC2 will get more popular as a game?
Arcades suck alot for fighting games for two reasons:
- Sticks break and they dont fix them
- Somthing screws up and pplz cant fix it
If we want this to survive and for people to continue to get interested then somthing drastic needs to happen. All these kids are getting into counter strike and diablo and things of that nature that take lots of time to build their character or just fuckin shoot people.
I’m wondering if what Xbox is doing will revitalize what fighters are to the world, and get more people interested, knowing that they will ALWAYS have people to play against, Unless the game is so incredibly broken no one would play it even if u payed for them to play.
This is a sport for us, and we love it. But i mostly see people who have been playing sense the original Mk and Sf2 and Fatal Fury still around and playing. Don’t see many new faces, and those who are new dont spend the time it seems to get good, and expect it to just happen overnight.
1.Why Do We Continue To Play These Games?
2.Why Will They Eventually Die?
3.How Can We Prevent Them From Dieing?
2.Lack Of Interest And Players
3.Having Big Tournys Televised, Like In Korea.
How long do you think they will last?
1,2,3 maybe 4 more years? Never Die Out?
