Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown 

 

Sony was kind to us at their E3 2012 press conference. They gave everyone in attendance a code for a free one year membership to Playstation Plus. I used that to download this game. So it cost me nothing but time, and one more thing I will mention later. Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is a fighting game on the PS3 and Xbox 360 from Sega. This franchise had been quiet for some time. I had actually hoped it was dead and buried. Few things in the video game industry are though.

The stages in Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown looks amazing. The diversity factor is huge in this fighting game, I went all over the world in all kinds of different cages. Some of them were open ended so we can ring out the other vicious fighter.

The downside to the graphics in Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is how women are portrayed. Yes this fighting game shows them as sex symbols for men and boys to lust after. This genre has still not matured. Some of the men are bare chested in this game as well. The violence in Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is insane. It boosts the aggression levels to all time highs. Every single one of us that played Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown were aggressive immediately afterwards. It took time to purge the HULK SMASH mentality this game teaches. Even in people who were just watching.

The voices are lame in Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. I do not speak that language so I have no idea what most of them were saying. The few I did understand were rude to the defeated combatant most of the time. That kind of poor sportsmanship is not needed, and it gives gamers bad attitudes towards others.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown surprises me in how few modes there are. And how few characters there are to play. There were even fewer in earlier Virtua Fighter games. So it improves the franchise, but Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is still not up with the rest of the industry.

Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown is all about getting them before they can get you. And then getting them as often as you can - until they can no longer stand up against your ruthless aggression. The violence gets boring very quickly.

Does our industry need to be known for games like Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown? It takes the image of the gamer and throws it into the gutter, and connects us with school shooters. I want our industry to mature past games like this one, and soon.
