An interesting thought. If we had all the most requested characters.....

would people still complain as much about wasted slots and unworthy characters? I don't think so.

You can make a case for just about any character in the game that they belong. Even ones that get a lot of hate like Fat Princess...you have to admit, it's one of Sony's most innovative and quirky titles in a long, long time and the sales and reviews were really good for a PSN game.

HOWEVER, I think the thing is, when we look at the missing God tier popularity characters, that's when all this resentment starts.

Deep down everyone knows Fat Princess isn't the reason Crash didn't make the cut but it's still easy to have resentment because people wanted Crash so badly.

If this game announced tomorrow it was getting Crash, Spyro, Cloud, Snake, Lara, Sora etc. I honestly don't believe any character in the game would warrant much hate.

Characters would still get hate, but because of how OP they are.

I'm talking about in terms of characters though, not gameplay. That's a different topic all together.

And you should get back into playing competitively. Every Wednesday and Friday(?) tournaments are hosted.

But yeah we certainly should for old times sake.

We'd get complaints still, people would just be more demanding of obscure JRPG reps

One of the most primary constants in the Internet / gaming world is the fact that people will always complain, no matter what. If the roster size was doubled and health and percentage modes included and even an option for traditional SF style mode for fighting added plus the game was 100% balanced and perfect for competition... People would still whine. They can't help it. Their own lives suck too much to ever be happy

I play a lot of Starcraft 2 now, but I still play this with some friends locally. I quit taking fighting games super serious just because it was really stressful for me. Lately I've made it a point to remove negativity from my life and if I'm not having fun I don't feel I should be playing.

What brought me back was really new characters. Despite what people might think, I dropped Sackboy after a super convincing loss in a 1v1. It really showed me what Sackboy lacks in his toolset and how poorly off he really is in some situations. My usual thing is to play a well rounded character, which Sackboy is not. So I picked up Drake a while back and have been using him online for a little bit now. I also like using Emmett and Kratos more now.

Only if competition is fun for me again. I really only enjoy Starcraft because it works my brain in a way that fighters just don't. That's all I really want from gaming too, so if I can get in on a 2v2 tournament or something then maybe I'll jump back in.

Tell me how Sackboy isn't well rounded? He pretty much has moves that can counter range and can stop up and close fighters.
