Do you see yourself playing 3s or CVS2 10 years down the line? I really dont.
I’m not even that good in the games, but I feel both of those games will die out eventually. Same with MVC2. I know ST is still fairly popular but how long will that last. Eventually they will get stale.
Only Sammy and SNK are making 2d fighting games, Namco and Sega are the only ones making 3d ones. The genre is dying out, at least on the 2d front.
Capcom has forsaken us in favour of garbage compilations (though I have hopes for the cell shaded game), not even bothering to release 3s in Europe. Even Battle Colliseum came out here.
So, do we all have to make the move to 3d, GG and KOF, Samsho or Melty Blood? Or keep playing the stuff we have now till we’re old and teaching them to our grandchildren.
