When all a game has to offer is sex appeal then you know it's a piece of shit game. And that's all Dead Or Alive has going for it. You could pick any other real fighting game and end up with a much better experience than DoA.
DOA's existence has always depended on its pandering to sadsacs who have learned to play a controller with one hand and stroke themselves with the other - cause nobody in the fighting community gives a shit about it.
This, it markets to its target demographic and it does it well. (as seen by the money they're happily making) If you want something with less T&A, and more gamer/event/Doritos/git gud attitude, there are countless games you can play to get that.
The worse thing about people like you is that you assume the game is selling purely on sex appeal.
The same fucking thing is happening in OP's article.
>OH IT HAS SEXY WOMEN
>THAT MUST BE WHY
And I'm not saying that can't be a fucking reason, but too narrow it down to just sex appeal is a fucking lie.
please don't associate fsd with the fgc

Okay anon, show me some promotional videos from that the devs have made to advertise their game.
And remind me, how much DLC does this have again? And how much of it is female exclusive costumes?
Because that's how the developers market it. Its YOUR burden of proof to show the devs marketing it as an actual fighting game and not softcore porn.
The number of and ratio of female to male costumes only further proves my point.
It's a poor competitive fighting game, and a bad fighting game in general.The only thing it has going for it is the sex appeal.
You seriously think it'd be relevant with just regular characters?
>same people defend "cinematic games" when movies exist
>I'm bad at this video game and thus it is a bad video game because it happens to have cosmetic outfits that I can target my anger on and never admit I just am furious that I am terrible at it.
This is like saying all movies are bad because every film since the 90s has had fanservice in it and usually straight up tits and sex.
I am genuinely surprised you all saw "A Shit To Remember" and didn't immediately want that.
No one does that. Clickbait fucks.
They allow you to escape out of basically any situation. Believe me when I say it was given a chance at the start of it's life span and quickly dropped. The concept almost goes against fighting games themselves. The idea of a balanced neutral is crucial. Someone being able to escape an disadvantageous situation so easily is just bad design.
>the mod just wanted you to post a full collection all along
DOA threads are always around. Your shitty comics can go infest some other thread.
I can see how people don't like holds, but it's a 4point system, it's not like you can easily get out of any situation or just spam holds espacially against good players.
You really have to know every characters combos and mix ups in addition to the playstyle of your oppenent to be able to hold often and even than the opponent will adjust to it.
It may go against the "concept" of fighting games themself, but it also makes them more realistic just from a technical standpoint, of course ninjas and tengus aren't exactly realistic.
In mixed marital arts you don't land a hit and from that point on you can hit all you want,
The oppenent would take their chance to get out of it through dodging, blocking and in the end holds too.
As i said i get taht some people don't like itm but it's not like holds invade other games or force them to have them too.
It deserve it's place with the other fighters, it may not be the best, but it's far from being shit.
At least 2, 3 and 5
OP, video gamers are manchildren who have never seen an actual woman. Most could be described as overweight 25+ with social anxiety and mental illnesses, often very racist (but scared of blacks in real life). They play semi-porn games while touching their microdick when mom is at work.
Making a fighting game more realistic from a technical stand point is not necessarily a good thing, and I think DoA is an example. In fighting games, you are rewarded for successfully reading or outspacing your opponent. This is the same for something like chess when you put them in check, where your opponent has to react to your turns (disadvantage) as opposed to positioning themselves freely (neutral). Winning a fighting game usually involves capitalizing on the advantageous situation in some way. Allowing your opponent to escape this with holds just makes the attacker weary of attacking, since the tide can be turned so easily. Again, this is imbalanced.
You are not rewarded for you check as you should be. It's like if you put someone in check, but if you weren't careful, the opponent could put you in check in just one turn, while you had to work to get yours.
I like DOA cause its fun. I dont win much cause I'm bad, and honestly I don't care too much to git gud cause well gittin gud isn't too much fun, but I still try to improve combos cause its fun. Vidya games are fun. FGC and everyone else can suck it.
Iam pretty sure just becuase the porn is HD doesn't mean the porn-stars stop being ugly.
