Is anyone really *that* excited about Tekken 5?

Tekken 3 was definitely the apex. Only the otaku around here even gave Tekken 4 or 5 a look. I think its problem was that the control scheme got so complex that it turned the casual gamer off. I think that is why Soul Calibur has become arguably more popular because a beginner or casual player can pick up and play it.

I'm psyched for Tekken 5, I've played it a lot in the arcade and it's way better than Tekken 4. People that praise SC2 and down Tekken 5 should be shot for such stupidity, the last time I checked you still had to practice to get any good at any game. Tekken 5 is a lot more precise, and it plays a little more tight like in Tekken 3 and Tag.

Nope.

But I never liked Tekken.

I'm still trying to figure out why Christy is White now.

The only 3D fighter I liked was Virtua Fighter 4 Evo. I sucked at it, though.

2D fighters all the way

Meh.

I'll never understand this obsession with 2-D fighters.

I'm not a huge fighter fan though.

I usually buy every Tekken when they're released. It's turned into a tradition for me. Tekken 5 looks fantastic and that's good because I'm playing VF4:Evo to death and DOA:U was an absolute bore-fest. I need another good fighter!

You played one, you've played them all?! I hope you *really* didn't mean that.

And the controls and timing are difficult compared to 2d fighters and other 3d mainstays such as DoA, SC, or VF.

Last time I checked, you shouldn't have to practice too hard to make it past the 1st CPU stage.

All Tekken games after Tekken 3 sucked big time. WHo still needs sparks, and flames, and fire balls in fighter games? VF4: Evo is where it's at. No 3D fighter compares to that game. All figthers need to abandon the floating moves. It is just totally crazy.

I meant if you have played one tekken you have played 'em all!! I've always wanted to check if it's true that Virtua fighter is THAT good! for me it looks like DOA all the way but since I have played it I just can only guess.

With the addition of knockdown pursuit attacks, rushing attacks, linkables, tackles, reverses, etc, from one game to the next, you are playing an evolution of the previous title. If a Tekken 1 player thought that when playing a Tekken 3 player, he'd probably be pwned in 3 seconds by an unblockable or have a Xiaoyu player dance circles around them because they take advantage of the 3d map. The problem is that, like the Bemani series, when you evolve and ramp up the difficulty *too* much, you alienate that casual gamer. That's probably why Tekken 4 didn't sell.

Meh! Really should see the arcade, but im too lazy. Tekken Tag or 4 didn't have me hooked like 3 did (worship even). No.4 was a dissapointment in my eyes.
