With the 3rd update to SF4 coming up and Capcom still following the same inferior principals of pleasing the fans first before letting the developers minds run free I got pissed the F**K off and decided to create this thread.
The whole Idea of trying to please everyone so you can sell more copies should have stopped with the creation of SF4.
What they are doing now is sitting in one place, impairing progress. Would SF4 have sold more copies had it been made with a more creative mindset instead of rehashing old characters and playstyles? Probably not, although with the money they spent on marketing they would have made their money back and then some.
But more importantly would SF4 be a better fighting game three updates in if it had been made with a more creative mindset ? If history has anything to teach us I can say for sure it won’t be as balanced as it is now but more fun,thought provoking and deep? Definitely.
And no its not just the suits fault or Ono’s fault for wanting more money. The biggest fault lies with the fans, the fans who always want more, the fans who put unneeded pressure on developers and last but not least the female-minded fans who hate this game and proceed to the nearest store to buy it because Gootecks or Daigo said so.
