Ok. I pick
>G Gundam masterpiece
It's perfectly fine to enjoy it anon. I am not taking a jab at OP for liking it.
But just because you like something does not make it good.
I am coming from the perspective of what would have been in the best interest for the G Gundam franchise.
An animated series was really a poor choice of a medium for it (the reasons for this are conflicting concepts that impeded the idea from reaching its potential---something for another post). A fighting game would have served it much better.
By making a fighting game the need for a 'story' or plot is lessened--fighting games only need to have a semblance of a story or plot.
When you consider the main plot thread of G Gundam this point becomes even stronger. G Gundam was basically all about robots just beating the shit out of each other.
The whole 'get your lost brother back/find your brother' was merely an afterthought--and it shows.
If this would have been a serious effort at making a viable commercial product, then a fighting game would have made it feasible:
- It would allowed for multiple iterations of the game, kinda like street fighter and other fighting games (KOF, GG].
See, if they would have made it into a fighting game we would have: 1) the nostalgia value of the 1st iteration, and 2) new iterations with new characters--basically an infusion of 'new life' to keep G Gundam going.
>G Gundam was a mistake. It really should have been JUST a 2D fighting game.It's okay OP, no one is perfect.
G Gundam is the most epic hot blooded series from the Gundam metaverse. It stands proudly alone in its majestic light. People that hate G Gundam deep down hate Gundam as well. You cannot call yourself a Gundam fan and hate G Gundam.
I don't hate it. I just think making it an animated series was a disservice to it. Would have loved to have it as a fighting game instead--and not the mediocre SNES one but a primo fighting game.
