Why 20 characters is unreasonable

65 replies 240 views Edited Sep 29, 2012

people want variety, i know i do, and 20 characters barely scrapes that in
if these were the best franchises they could get thier hands on, fair enough, we cant blame them if crash wasnt allowed in

however, im sure that peopel like myself would have therefore liked a few characters from the same series
Dr neferious from ratchet and clank, perhaps the 3 sages from Jak1 as a pokemon trainer "character"
Any of sly coopers buddies, or guys from metal gear
it could have really expanded the game i think

 

thoughts?

I'm pretty sure all characters having their own unique feel to them as well as supers and other fighting mechanics are plenty in variety. I don't know why you think it isn't the case. Every character is represented in their own style.

My thoughts: You're an idiot

If superbot steamrolls all the good characters now, there won't be any room to improve with sequels without scraping the bottom of the barrel. In All-Stars 2, there will probably be 2 reps per series, and 3 for All-Stars 3. That way, they can effectively still use "All-Stars" and also make improvements as time goes on

yes i know that Smiley Tongue i mean just with the gazillions of people who will play this, many will flock to their favourite games
most of my friends love ratchet and clank, so im afriad this in situations, we will all be the same, hence no variety
obviously between each character theyre completely different (except coles) which i think will be amazing Smiley Happy

Here's my thought. All fighting games start small. "Oh thats because they were all made before ps3. Systems are hight tech and blue ray so thay could handle more" No thats not an excuse. Look at injustice, its a brand new fighting game but only has around 20 characters. You also have to think about the money. Less characters = more sequels = more money. Plus where the hall are they going to get all the money for these third party characters anyways. They use the money from the sales of the first game to pay other devs for their characters in the second game. Its all about business and development time.

IT'S MY WAY OR . . . HELL IT'S MY WAY

yes but quality is THROWN OUT THE WINDOW when they say they are making a game to represent playsations history and the fans and then give us THIS

 

Omar - "what are you guys doing? Why did you get rid of crash!"
Game devs - "we wanted to put in evil Cole so we had to get rid of everyone else the fans wanted"
Omar- "Oh nice, good idea. I didn't think of that"

Can you at least make your posts sound less accusing/exaggerated? Honestly, I don't want to feel like I'm attacking you mate.

My thoughts as well: You are a moron

20 characters alone adds variety. And since everyone is different its more unique than Smash right now.
