Marvel Vs Capcom Infinite is in talks of having simple controls. This is so new fans to the series and fighting games in general can access the game not feeling left out or out of their depth. There is one problem with this though. Making things accessible means you deprive hardcore gamers of master mechanics that they enjoy to do or are amazed when others do so.
Something that most must argue with I guess when making a videogame. But Combofiend is saying that is not the case with MVCI. He says both camps should enjoy the game very much as new comers will have easier controls while hardcore fans who put time in will still find challenges and depth in their character so that you will have something those who haven’t put in the time don’t.
“Unfortunately there seems to be this mindset that you sacrifice depth for accessibility.But that’s actually not the case here. Not in any capacity, really. What you have are simple commands that allow players access to their characters quickly. It allows them to get a good feel for the game quickly. Ideally that would lead to them wanting to explore the characters further, sticking around and essentially becoming a player.” “For the more hardcore players who plan to put in time and effort, they’ll have deeper access to their character. They will be able to do stuff that a person who hasn’t put the time in will be able to do. There’s really no real sacrifice being made there on their behalf. For those who haven’t played a fighting game, if they just want to press the stone button, or press the switch button, push the attack buttons with their characters and see some cool things and do some damage, they can. Nobody’s being left out in the cold here. Nothing is being sacrificed for either party. We’re just making sure players who are unfamiliar are able to jump in and experience the world of Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite.”
So according to Peter there is a place for all. How this will play it we will have to wait and see so if I hear anything new I will let you know.
As always thank you for reading.
