Opinion on Character Selecting (Main selecting I mean)

#1CT_HardcasePosted 1/9/2013 10:59:16 PM
So, I have noticed that everyone assumes that guys flood to Raiden, Kratos, etc, because they are Overpowered. While some might be, you should also think about this...

Kratos, AKA Main character of GoW, was in a bestselling game series that people generally enjoyed. Same with Raiden. He is a MGS characters.

Another example is my love for Radec. KillZone is possibly my second favorite series of all time, and I absolutely loved Radec in the game.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Kratos is likely op because he's the developers favorite and has fanboys, he's essentially the gaming world's Wolverine. They seem to make sure he was very, very good.

Many top tier characters who have some cheap things aren't popular though. Fattie P, Sly, etc.

Evil Cole is pretty popular and top tier as is Drake. In some instances it wasn't probably intentional, but in others developers like to play favorite. I wish they would just make a good balanced game instead of doing that though.

I main Raiden because metal gear is my favorite franchise. For **** sake, look at my sig. Its a combination of Snakes "tasty" and peace walkersIntro conversation with zadornov. When Mgs 2 came out, I thought Raiden was cool while a bunch of these players hated him for stealing Snakes spotlight or looking like a girl or a loser. I enjoyed Mgs 4 while people complained that it wasn't even a game and just a "overly dramatic and confusing movie". I don't main Raiden because hes good, I play as him because he is a part of a franchise I hold high in regard.
"Squaretos" on the other hand can go rot in hades for all I care. I like GOW, but I hate Kratos. Definitely someone I would avoid in real life.

It doesnt hurt though that the kid tries Kratos just because he enjoyed GoW then beats the hell outta 3 people in his first ranked match even though he hasn't learned what all the buttons do yet. Them goes to try someone else he recognizes from a favorite game like Ratchet, gets pummeled, goes back to Kratos again and wins once again.

And again

And again

I chose Fat Princess because she plays similarly to Olimar from SSBB. Also, her mic trolling ability is legendary

Pretty much. That spoils the player for a long time if they want a easy win button.
