>>322623052 Okay guys I know this is an oft-repeated phrase when it comes to other franchises but bear with me
F-Zero by Platinum Studios
Two primary forms of gameplay. Captain Falcon has always been a bounty hunter since the first F-Zero, so you play as him in a fast paced stylish action game where he Falcon Punches and Kicks baddies into the next planet. At other times he'll be racing in the grand F-Zero tournament at blazing fast speeds.
>>322624451 The characters are all pre-established icons. And it's not like they can have character development or anything in these games so they just amp up the most recognizable characteristics of these characters to 1000.
I can't escape the meme because the meme is his character It's not like batman where there is batman the meme and batman the character is something different. Casuals who only know batman the meme, lol prep time batman always wins, will go on to read a batman comic and get super pissy to see he is actually fallible, fucks up a lot, Doesn't always save the day, and is not the omnicompetent god the meme makes him out to be.
Captain falcons character on the other hand is accurately represented in the meme. He has always been a campy super sentai haha yeah alright! Intense beefcake guy
For me, and maybe 5 other people, F-Zero has an appeal over most other racing games because it has interesting characters in it. It has guys you can root for or hate, plus racing as a cyborg is fucking great. It's stuff that also doesn't get in the way of gameplay.
I still think the series would benefit from keeping that in mind, especially if it can transfer into the gameplay by creating some interesting game scenarios in a story/challenge mode of sorts. Sort of like how GX's changed the pace from normal racing, except less retarded.
As for the meme, it will unfortunately never go away. Captain Falcon is a weird looking dude from the outset, and people just love reducing things to repetitive jokes. The best Imamura or anybody else handling the character can do is embrace it just enough while doing their own thing. Sort of like the anime, where Falcon wasn't a complete retard and the Falcon Punch made some sense in context.
