Why do people want Tomba? His games flopped even harder than this.

On top of being unpopular during his time, his time has long since passed, so he would alienate the average consumer. At least Sir Dan's games were successful at the time.



Is it just because hipsters want to mention the most obscure characters they can think of in their desperate attempts to look cool?




I'm serious, I want a serious answer.

I played the demo of Tomba one when I was a kid, all I remembered were pigs and thought the character was one until I saw a pic recently lol.

Saw some gameplay and I cant see him having a very interesting moveset.

Its because some people are basking in their nostalgia.

And no, I'm not a hypocrite for mentioning Dart in my sig. LoD sold almost a million copies in NA.

Because people's adoration of a game or character is not directly tied to its sales success?

What a ludicrous, loaded question.
It's like Justin Bieber in reverse. The world can't seem to stand him, yet he still keeps selling millions upon millions o albums

People love double fine to death, but nobody buys any of their games. That doesn't make the game or it's characters bad, it just means they didn't sell well

I love tomba games and would love to see him in here

Didn't Tomba get a sequel? Doesn't that mean it sold well at least?

He had a huge amount of different weapons/items to use. I thought the games were fun, personally; he has about as much worth as Sir Dan or Parappa being in the game.

Don't know the answer; resonance!

Neither game reached greatest hits status and the devs quickly went bankrupt.

I would say back then Sir Dan was abit more popular.

I would not compare Tomba to Parappa (everyone knows Parappa, the demos were everywhere!)

Tomba, however, is awesome! Tomba games were unique and a ton of fun. I have very fond memories of this game. That's why I want Tomba.
