    I think the fighting game genre is played out and they really need to introduce some vast revolutionary concepts other than some new "super kick" or a insulting palette swap of a character and calling it a "new character."


    With sports games not much revolution is needed, basically just a matter of tweaking the game engine every year and getting it closer to the actual sport. Some may argue the Madden series needs a complete overhaul, but that's another thread. To be specific, that's the thread on page 5.


    I can't think of any other genres that need to be changed, basically like I already said the fighting games. I'm trying to think of what new concepts they could add to it that's never been done before but I can't think of any, yall got any ideas?

    Just about every genre really...

    What seperates 1 war game from another? Not a whole lot. Some are better obviously, but in essence its basically the same shit everytime.

    Fighting I agree with, I havent played a fighting game in years. Honestly, 3d fighting sucks! I liked 2d fighting much better. Not to mention in fighting games these days, you do one combo and destory more than half your opponents life. I was playing Dead Or Alive demo, and matches would last 10 seconds.

    Most genres are pigeon holed. I mean, what more can you do for a sports or racing game these days? Now its all about slightly changing it, and making a fucking killing selling the shit.

    No genre can be overhauled really. Its all the same shit. A better question is what franchise should be overhauled.

    Like when they changed Resident Evil in Resident Evil 4. Greatest shit ever, prolly my favorite game ever.

    They just need to be more creative and more innovative when it comes to fighting games.

    are you assholes serious? :p of course 3D fighters are gonna be shorter, it's a pick up and play experience. you can still adjust the round amounts if u want longer matches. plus there's still some great 2d fighters out there if thats what u want. but as far as 3d fighters, cmon there's great titles out there too, and Tekken 6 is fuckign coming soon!

    Tekken 5 Dark Ressurection

    Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution

    the ONLY thing missing from fighting games is Online mode.

    I mean, the only reason why ppl think fighters need to be more "innovative" or "revolutionized" is because they've gotten used to fucking Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat formula, which is a classic set up on its own. And the fact that most of you haven't played the newer fighters released 2-3 years ago are obviously missing out on the change that these games went through.

    Gamespot has given both Tekken 5 and Virtua Fighter 4 over 9.0 scores, respectively, so why change something that's worked for the past 20 years?

    Them Tekken games are just stupid to me. You got like 20 moves, but all its takes is like, 2 and a half moves to win a match.

    Actually, each fighter has an average of 100 moves or more. Rofl.

    I used to agree with that mentality that "Oh shit these matches be too short son", that was my way of thinking when I was a noob. But after you start learning each fighter, especially one with alot of depth like Virtua Fighter, you'll start looking at the game play the way a real fighter would.

    In these games, it's extremely difficult to master more than fighter, because each has a unique style that doesn't completely replicate anyon else's. There might be some similar or downright switched pallettes, but this isn't fucking Street Fighter 2 where if you own with Ryu, you'll own with Ken and know the same moves for about half of the roster. No, this is where, you try and master one character you really like, and enter REAL tournaments to own other people. It's that same fighter's mentality. You go on competitions and try to defeat as many people as possible, like in real fighting circuits.

    And no it doesn't take "2 and a half moves" to win a match. A ten hit combo won't even completely deplete any lifebar in Tekken games.

    I'm assuming you don't know that all these 3D fighters are realistic-based right? What, you expect 20 hour long fights in reality? No son, people fight till someone gets enough damage and KO'd. They try to make it seem as real as possible in fighting styles, with some obvious video game flashy shit in the mix too.

    The old tekken games are like that, like 1 and 2....But after 3 all the way to now, they've adjusted the balance and the life bars so that the moves won't do as much damage and there's more room to punish opponents until they are knocked out.

    I agree with this, because 3d fighting games are so personal nowadays. It's very personal because you end up spending alot of time with only a few fighters (or just one), because the more you get good with him/her, the more your bond with that fighter grows.

    It takes time and alot of practice to become pro at each character, so I understand why some people would get frustrated at the requirement of skill needed to play if they're just looking for an easy-to-learn game. It's partly Namco's fault that they STILL haven't made online mode for their English version games at this day and age.

    And black people like Tekken. There's TONS of black Tekken players. I've seen them in tournaments, usually some of the best ones there too.

    but that IS the problem with fighting games now: there's TOO MUCH depth.
    i dont care how deep a game is, if i have to spend countless months mastering just ONE fighter, it's not fun!

    That's cuz you suck and have never seen two pro tekken players go at it.

    The better the players are, the longer matches there'll be, cuz they know how to block, counter, parry, and evade each other's moves.

    Usually the timer is close to running out when someone wins a round.

    Not good games? Oh gee, I guess that's why Tekken is the biggest and most commercially succesful 3D fighting game franchise in the world today for no reason. I mean, they hold worldwide Tekken tournaments where tens of thousands of players compete to celebrate such a terrible game, that must be it. Yea, yea it's so crappy that to this day, the latest Tekken installments, Tekken 5 and Dark Ressurection, all recieved an average of over 9.0 scores out of 10 in most offical video game review sites like Gamespot and IGN. Yea, real shitty.

    Fuck outta here.
