First off, you got this from the IGN video. Dont pretend your being original.
Secondly, Sonys only really started developing their iconic characters in the last 2 generations. That doesnt make them any less viable as fighting game characters, alot of people will argue nintendos tight character roster limited the directions smash bros could go in. The inclusion of more non-marioland/non-nintendo characters in the last 2 games proves this, dont be suprised when SSBB2 (or whatever they call it) includes Ezio and Sam fisher.
This game is not PlayStation All-Stars of the PAST!!! It's meant to represent past, present AND future. Stop whining because it didn't focus on the past as much as you wanted it to, it's still going to be fun to play. SB never promised that they were going to bring tons of past playstation back in this game, that was an expectation that the community created for themselves.
True its got sir dan, spike and parappa and i love their inclusions to death but come on. RPG's were a huge part of playstations history. Maybe not a final fantasy character if they couldnt get the rights but there have been other RPG's. They have just missed out a huge part of their history right there.I'm not even gonna say who else is missing because you all know it.
It baffles me when I see this. Final Fantasy's inclusion I can understand, but most other RPGs? Not hugely popular.
RPGs are very much a niche genre, with only Final Fantasy (and maybe Dragon Quest) really reaching mainstream success. That's why I can understand the clamouring for Cloud, but I honestly can't see how Disgaea and Persona are all that important to PS history when barely anyone bought them over franchises that are already represented.
And honestly, we have enough people complaining that they've never heard of half the cast as it is without obscure JRPG characters.
raiden has been in mgs4 (hes pretty much the same as he was there)
everyone else is from past games..
i dont see the problem here.
the only stage from a future game is bioshock infinite.
Seems to me like you care about the game and will definitely buy it. Otherwise you would have come and gone.
Critical analysis is fine, but most of your gripes go far beyond that.
the roster, online is broke, if they do pull what twisted metal did, this game will die VERY VERY fast, and the gameplay is lack luster
