If a developer announces that a loved franchise is suddenly turning into an MMO/multiplayer/MOBA title, the initial public response can look like disappointment. Those aren’t the types of genre shifts that people typically clamour for… unless the game in question is Pokemon.
Yes, being mean or trolling someone isn’t exactly recommendable or even particularly empathetic, but that doesn’t mean both are completely off the table all the time. Not if you’re playing a game, anyway.
One thing I can’t help but admire about fighting games is how well the genre uses moves and kinetics for characterisation: sure, not every game has a fantastic story attached to it, but that doesn’t mean a fighting game can’t have well-defined, unique characters, you know?
