    Where's the option for "additional characters should all be unlocked with Day1 paid DLC", because that's what players really want, right ?

    I love being able to unlock characters, makes them feel more interesting and can help act as a bit of training with the core mechanics before heading into competitive play.

    I absolutely loathe having DLC for fighting games however. I believe everyone should have access to all available tools in a competitive environment, creating additional characters you need to buy that someone else may not have access to is pretty shit imo. Give me the old traditional Capcom model of Hyper/Super/Turbo editions with tweaked mechanics and rosters anyway. It also helps create player bases around those specific versions of the games as well and their unique play mechanics.

After that I was playing the Alpha games on the PS1 and Saturn, with the Saturn version heavily preferred because of the more suited controller, though I suppose if you had a stick it's neither here nor there. I bought 30th Anniversary collection today for Switch, time to dive back in.

    I like playing Tekken 7. But I always didn't like the fact that a lot of characters are closed. Fortunately, there are always guides out there like this one on how to open them. In general hidden characters are a common thing in fighting games. I think it mostly done to motivate people play more so it's not such a bad thing. If you like the game you will eventually open them all.

    As long as it not something stupid like DLC or Loot Boxes. I would prefer to just sit down and play the game. I don't need bragging rights... especially in a fighting game. I can let my skill do the bragging... however, if I can't play certain characters because you have to beat Nightmare difficulty with this one character (which I don't care for) using a predetermined attack sequence... then yeah I'd rather just have the character from the start. Let me play and enjoy the game. If I never want to touch certain characters that should be fine.

    EDIT: And beating the game a set amount of times like 20 or 100 can fuck right off. It's not challenging it's tedious.

    If the requirements to unlock characters are reasonable (ie, play through arcade mode once as X character, and you unlock Y character), I don't have a problem with that. If it's some bullshit grind like "once you complete the story mode on the highest difficulty as every character 10 times, you get to play a slot machine for a chance to unlock a random character" then no. Fuck that.

    As for DLC...it depends. If a fighting game has Leatherface as a playable character, but he's DLC, I'm okay with that because he's a guest character. If I'm looking at the character select screen in a Street Fighter game and see grayed out portraits with shopping cart icons on them for characters like Ryu or Chun-Li, we have a problem.

    edit: just noticed this was like a 2-year-old necro. Oh well.

    GOD I actually kinda hate that. To me If they were playable without DLC in the previous game they shouldn't be DLC in the NEXT game. Fuck if they were a part of the core cast they DEFINTELY shouldn't be DLC...IE Shang Tsung, Mileena, Guile, Sagat, Balrog, Blanka, and E Honda
