Lots of things. Iggy: I thought I would be gone longer. Last time it was 2 months, this time, 2 weeks...though last time, I didn't post too often here and nobody knew who I was. Spoon: Ness doesn't count. His original character design was clay. He's already 3D. Still, I get your point. Everyone: I still think that all 3 of Capcom's firsts had charm when they came out, even if they don't stand the test of time. Vampire blew my mind. None of my friends cared, but they had to listen to me scream in their ears "It's STREET FIGHTER...ONLY WITH MONSTERS! MONSTERS!" and it was fun enough for the time. Zero was a new Street Fighter, and that was enough. And SF3 was SF3. Don't you remember what a big deal that was? Don't you remember how spectacular the game looked by the standards of the time (even by today's standards!)? I felt pretty "ehhh" about it in the end, but I still played it a lot, as I played Zero and Vampire. My point is that while all 3 games were a little weak, I didn't think that at the time, I just enjoyed what I had, and without knowing what I was missing, that was more than good enough. CFJ on the other hand is the opposite, because I know what I'm missing: Lots of characters and backgrounds. I still stand by the belief that a sequel to CFJ with twice as many characters/backgrounds/everything would be a great game. However, my line of thinking that "the sequel will be better" fits into the typical "Capcom's first game sucks" theory in a different sort of way. I find SFZ2 horribly boring. I fully understand complaints that SFZ3 is too loose and has zany systems, but that's better than SFZ2's totally bland offering. Also, (although this isn't fair) SFZ3 has Karin, who is the only SFZ character I can get excited about. The other characters, for the most part, are entirely too boring. A long time ago, Iggy made a brilliant comment about how the characters in KOF 98 (despite being in a good game) are boring to play by today's standards. (very true) With the exception of Karin, that's how I feel about SFZ2. It's also why I can only use about half of the characters in 3rd Strike. The others are too boring. (though a game where I can happily use half of the characters is a true accomplishment)
