Because of the lack of ability to put any opinion of the opposite in the other Megaman Legends 3 thread, and at fact of being -banned- for a week for it. I've decided to place a thread outside of main threads. While the game is not out yet and little critiquing can be done from that, there still can be the opposite opinion because that's...well, you know. Only fair. While I am glad that there is a Legends 3 in development, I find myself being brought back to Legends 1, and 2 along with my thoughts on the series itself. Besides it's ability to tell a story in game, it wasn't too great outside of carrying the name "Megaman." The controls were stiff, the textures were terrible while they could have been made better, and the gameplay was rugged. Honestly if it didn't have the title "Megaman" on it, it would not get the shine it does get now.
I'm also a bit surprised at the hype behind it around the forums. I do in fact get that we are all Megaman fans. I am too. I like the idea of Legends 3, without a doubt. However it's a bit strange that people are willing to shell out a large amount of cash for the system and the game alone for reason, given what kind of game it was if you would take the fan appeal out of it. Now, that is not to say that Legends 3 will be like the other two. While enjoyable, the game had more than enough problems than it's share and could have been made better on the second go-round. Capcom used the "if it isn't broke don't fix it" application it is known for. Personally, I am a bit worried this will carry on in the third game. While I understand that people are excited about a game they've waited years for, it seems that obsession has caused any other opinion to automatically be non-factual or irrelavent despite local evidence. For fan hype that's been around, I can personally say my anticipation for the game has decrease.
Not to sound in offense, it sounds as if there is a tinge of social pleasure from it. I understand, it is a game we've all been waiting for. I understand that we want it badly. However, I am disappointed with the fact that it will not be coming out for a current generation console that cost plenty and more than enough revenue would be made. I am not attempting to crash the "Celebration" as it is cause (No offense, but it's a video game, guys. Common.) But I am merely stating my opinion and would like other -senseable- opinions whether they be agreeing with my own or against. Then again, this is the internet. No such thing as free speech depending on situation and location.
