Why Polygon Man is a poor choice for the final boss

56 replies 1342 views Edited Nov 8, 2012

1. When you have to take the time to explain who the final boss is, it's a bad choice.

2. When Sony decided he was a bad idea shortly after his introduction and was never seen again, it's a bad choice.

3. When Sony has so many untapped IPs with very interesting characters, and they choose this one obscure character over great, recognizable ones, it's a bad choice.

 

Smash - Master Hand

All-Stars - Master Face

Xbox 4-Player Brawler - Master Foot

When PS, Nin., XB merge into 1 giant company - Master Man

I COMPLETELY disagree. I think he's an awesome choice.
When in doubt, freak 'em out.

Jesus, this community is really awful

Master Hand is something unique? something recognizable when it first came out? No. But it worked with the story SSB was telling.

P-Man works with the lore of this game. He makes the most logical sense as a foundation to PlayStation that incorporates the brand as a whole. Get over it.

At least they didnt go with the Helghan Army like originally planned Smiley Very Happy

When you fail to recognize the history and story behind his inclusion, it's a bad thread.

I think explaining the boss was only in the interest of keeping newer PlayStation fans up to speed on who he is, as he hasn't been shown for QUITE some time. But once it's explained to you, you come to realize that it makes perfect sense and that he is, as cobbys2012ps said, an awesome choice.

He a good choice since it doesn't favor one IP. Also he actually represents a part of Playstation history unlike Master hand or Tabuu

Lets say for example the boss is Dr Nefarious.

- Why do we need all of Playstations All Stars to take out one boss that has been taken down by one character in the roster many times before ?
- Why does he take priority over another charecter from another IP ?

Then there's the suggestion of having multiple bosses, but then there's no real payoff and the same questions can still apply - unless your fighting them all together, which I highly doubt would work well.

Using Polygonman is perfect for that very reason. He's an obsecure character which shows this game really is representing the Playstations history, he represents no IP therefore no IP takes priority in that sense & he's got the perfect and most obvious motive - he got pulled out just before the Playstation launched, that story writes for itself.

There's nothing wrong with an obscure character, in fact it's a good idea to have obscure characters to make them more well known.
