So, how often do you use these predefined chat texts?
I think it’s pretty dull to never use them, and instead being either the driver or the surfer in this picture when you reach the rematch menu:
The game is afterall a form of communication - and chatting a few simple lines in good humor is often a lot easier than actually playing the same, so why not do both [from time to time], and simultaneously practice “good communication”? Because actually playing the game with a positive mindset works actually much better than the mindset of “Okay, back to menu - press press press press press press READY!! - okay, here we go again…”
I thought the “smiley face communcation” in vanilla SFIV was pretty fun, and thought it was a shame that they took a step back in that regard with the later iterations of SFIV, but I think V has done a very good job with it.
What do you think? “Talking” - yay or nay?
