Gatekeeping exists for good measure. It's to avoid anti-consumerism like MTX and overall bad DLC practices. If people are just ok with something because they aren't a vet of that series, then the devs will try to get away with more with the new "fanbase". Look
Think it's sad and pathetic that in order to see hellsweeps in Tekken, like seeing lows in every other 3D fighter, you need the 120Hz mod with the monitor to go with it. This is why I don't think Tekken players don't know how to truly Yomi people, as it's simply given to them for free like Zangief but worse
One thing I do appreciate about FG accessibility, at least for intermediates like me is getting to the human element sooner. I always hate when I play people that I know for a fact are hiding weaknesses behind a character or mechanic.
I wonder how many people suffer from procrastination to the point when they finally decided to do things, it had to be during COVID19? A lot of shops and businesses are closed. Now, you can't get anything important done.
I kind of want the FGC to acknowledge the CoD community's ignorant backlash of SBMM. It's a regular thing for FGs in order to improve. If they said that about a FG, they'd be considered scrubs. They act as if your Rank and Skills is absolute.If you lose, you'll go back to the kiddie pool. That's just how it is. They don't like getting exposed.
Anyone else feels like they love fighting games because it makes them unique in the sphere of gaming culture as a whole? Especially among your cicrles. More so than RPGS would for others. That's my push to play them. Just hard to match-make because people perceive FGs as too difficult w/o realizing they're enjoyable on all levels.
Anyone else feel like it's too easy to block and run away from people in KOF14? Like I get punishing rolls and stuff but you'd be surprised how little you get to do what you want. GGXRD had this same issue but more so.
I like how Sega owns all the property rights for all the anime fighters, but since they don't directly make moves but Arcsys does, shit gets done. Otherwise we'd probably be waiting more long for those game releases just like VF.
There's people that feel as though Ranks should be taken away from FGs. Considering the nuances and the fact you can look amazing one day and horrible another. Overall knowledge isn't translated well. Esp with Tekken and GBFV Skills aren't predetermined like enemies in an RPG Region.
