I do wonder how the hell the Tekken team managed to pull off such a good and balanced second season for Tekken 7. Every game (excluding T1 because I don't really know much about it competitively) had relatively bad character balancing: T2: Mishimas very strong, T3: Jin strong, TTT: Mishimas and Double Ogres T4: Jin sitting in a tier of his own, very few could match him.
Darksiders 1 Warmastered > Darksiders 2 Deathnitive > Darksiders 3 (haven't played DS3 yet but from what I've seen on the internet and heard from a couple of players, I think It'd be the weakest DS title for me). Whats the situation with Genesis though, is it good? Also, I do hope that Genesis won't be Strife's actual game/main game, that'd be slightly disappointing.
I feel that if a new fate would be coming to BBTag, then it'd be either from Melty Blood or from a KT game maybe. If that were to happen, then on the KT side the obvious choice would be DOA, the interesting but at the same time not insanely surprising choice would be Atelier and the one that I'd be happy the most would be Nights of Azure.
What Marvelous could do with the Senran Kagura franchise after 7EVEN comes out (hopefully): SK2: Deep Crimson Re:Newal, new/3rd dimension where they canonically incorporate some if not all the new characters from the New Link mobile game (think that game is completely non-canon, right?) while retaining the old Musou-esque gameplay and continue the SV-EV dimension's story post 7EVEN.
Can. We. Stop. Adding. More. Fire. Emblem. Characters. In. Smash. For. Christ's. Sake. Seriously, I get it, Fire Emblem is one of Nintendo's most knows franchises now and Three Houses did well but, for crying out loud, 1/7th or 1/8th of the cast is made of FE characters....in a 70 character roster. Character seems ok though gameplay-wise.
Tales characters could be excellent guest characters in many games. Lloyd and Cress would be good guest characters in Smash while Velvet and Luke or Asch or Sorey would be good additions to BBTag in my opinion.
Next year won't be too bad for gaming now that I think about it: Granblue Fantasy Versus and Relink, new guilty gear, persona 5 new version, under night new version, tales of arise, re3 remake, nioh 2 and I'm pretty sure that I'm forgetting about more amazing games coming out next year.
Belial looks like a cool character, he's giving me like 60% Hazama vibes and 40% chill vibes. I'm still hoping that Beatrix makes it in the game either in SP1 or 2. Also, yay, we're doing the BBTag stuff all over again, half the roster is going to be dlc and we already know about it 3-4 months prior to GBFVS's release.
Damn, there's an entry cap for EVO Japan's Smash Ultimate tournament. From what I've seen and heard so far though, it probably is this way because of a lot of casuals participating, just like how it was with this year's Smash tournament at EVO (had more than a thousand participants compared to SFV).
Best timeline: DOA6U gets released on PS5, Xfridge and PC and fixes previous problems+better content leading up to and after 6U next year, Kasumi for SP4 of T7.
Worst timeline: TN/KT messing up DOA6 more and more+enough negative feedback that DOA would die for good.
Seriously, the best moment of TGA was about the Te-Ken fighting game that those two like to play (and FF7R I guess, even though I don't remember seeing a lot of new stuff about it in this TGA trailer). The Game Awards? More like The Lame Awards.
