What made you buy DOA5?

#1AkuumuuPosted 6/2/2013 7:08:03 PM
I'd like to think majority of the people who own DOA5 bought it because they wanted a good fighting game, yet a few of my friends say I'm one of the few who did, and the rest bought it because of the sex appeal.

Tell me why you bought DOA5, and if you think it meets your expectations.

I enjoy the DOA series. I've been a fan since DOA3 and currently own. DOA3, DOAX, DOAU, DOA4, DOAX2, DOAD and DOA5.

Though I do main a DOA female in Hitomi. So I am sure your friend would say I buy for the sex appeal.

Other fighting games I own are VF5, VF5FS, and I did own MK(2011), but I sold it as I didn't really like it.

I love DOA.

1. I had loved the series ever since the first DOA game.
2. I need to brush up on the combos I used back then and even learn the new moves then come up with new combos and juggles.

Eroticism. Honestly not going to even lie.

I always wanted to get into a fighting game, since I hadn't really bothered with any much since the days of Mortal Kombat 3 and Super Street Fighter 2. I always thought Dead or Alive was the black sheep of the fighting game world, but I liked it because it always seemed cool, even though people in the fighting game world think its just a joke game about boobs. Even I thought that was the case as I had only played a demo for the original back on PS1 which was only famous for insane boob physics. But I like DOA because it's the underdog of the fighting game world, and I find Tekken boring.

Okay I only bought DOA5 for the girls. I originally never found them that attractive, but I like the new character models a lot better. I only play as the female characters so far.
