1.) Did you lose because the player was better than you at making decisions? If so, then a.) the game is designed correctly and b.) no amount of execution will make up the loss.
2.) From each loss, to win would you have a.) Needed to make different decisions? b.) Knew the answer but missed an input? c.) Got the input but did it too late (reaction time), or d.) Needed more character knowledge (got hit by shit you didn't know how to handle or never seen before)
This game is trying to eliminate b.), c.) and to a certain extent d.) ... but a well-made fighting game can never make up for your lack of decision making during matches. Knowledge should be easy to build up by just playing matches or the CPU.
As a person who isn't able to win a lot of matches because I don't have time to train and learn 1-2 frame links, combos and 45 character rosters, I think that's kind of cool.
I was born in Mumbai, India. I would set a sweet Taxi Simulator. not Crazy Taxi. More like, get the most amount of money, have some rpg elements like story that unfolds with different people you pickup from the airport, and night missions where you can do things outside of your regular daytime taxi job, also some elements where you maybe have to feed your family, or join a taxi gang ... perhaps hack your meter and see which "tourists" notice or care ...
If a game that has been soo hype for so long can't sustain a solid 9.0 or higher from a decent amount of reputable gamers, than its not worth 60$ to ME... not because I can't afford 60$... not because they don't "deserve" 60$. But because I know that there is no reason for me not to wait and get it on a price drop, steam sale, or otherwise wait for my internal hype to die down before giving it a chance. I hear the story isn't something that, even if it inadvertently gets spoiled for me, is the reason why you purchase this game. So that being said... I might boot up Sleepy Dogs, or Saints Row or GTAV or whatever to go cruising around for a while and see if I care enough...
TLDR: I expect something mind-blowing to spend 60$ day 1 for a game. This doesn't seem that.
60 is clearly better.Playing something like perfect dark on the n64 then playing the 360 HD version of that same game will solidify the argument for you. Go try it. Just because games used to have horrible frame rates doesn't mean that we should be used to it. Far Cry 3 is a great example. It literally plays like a shooter on PC but it plays like an RPG on 360... Akin to Fallout 3.
