I've seen a lot of people say that this game should not be taken seriously (at least at a competitive level) and I'm not sure I think people who like to argue that this is simply a joke or shouldn't be taken seriously actually have legitimate arguments to back it up. I've seen:
- It doesn't look good.
- It's only played with two buttons.
- One-hit KO / No health.
- It's just meant as a parody.
And I don't think any of these are valid and seem to be stated more by people who don't even play fighting games that much or know about them on a fundamental level compared to those that do.
Thankfully, most people think otherwise or just don't care, but it's rather frustrating to see people dismiss it for practically no reason.
