lol.. Yeah Liu was a blatant Bruce Lee rip off too, maybe not as humble, but more enjoyable to fight as. Then again, never was the biggest MK fan. The series peaked with MK 2, then took a nosedive for the worse. If you notice, all the characters fight more or less the same way aside from the special attacks. What saved this franchise to me was the gore and the mythology behind every character. Great storyline and atmosphere, terrible gameplay mechanics.
I hated MK3 but loved MK2 and also hated Sonic 3 but loved Sonic 2. This lead me to think all things come with a terrible 3. But I analyzed the fact that out of Sonic, MK and a lot of others.......there was a significant improvement from 1 & 2 that was not present in 2 & 3
Same. Tekken, Virtual Fighter, Soul Caliber...I ain't playin' none of that shit. Also never playing any of the Smash games & never want to see the it's a fighter/it's not a real fighter argument again in my life.
I did enjoy Soul Calibur for the weapons gimmick, but it got old fast. Virtual Fighter was kinda cool back in the day since it was one of the first (if not the first 3D game to make it's way on consoles). I remember getting a Sega Saturn for Xmas, it came with Virtual Cop, Daytona USA and Virtual Fighter 2. Played the hell out of those games because the selection at my videostore for Saturn games was basically non-existant. One GREAT thing about Virtual Fighters is that SEGA used the engine to make All Japan Pro Wrestling Featuring Virtua, one of the the best non-domestic wrestling games ever made.
Tekken 3 did so much right. Don't really care about the story sorry.
Law was still Law to me in Tekken 3. And Forrest Law had a badass song on his stage.
Tekken 3 was a great game despite the fact that the story resulted in many of people's favorite characters being killed off, only to be retconned sometime later on down the line. It also fueled my hatred for Eddy/Christie players, who were always rewarded for mindlessly button mashing.
