What does /vr/ think about Tekken?

Since Tag came out in '99 for the arcade it's retro too

One of the few fighting games I actually like.
On a very much related note anyone know where to get those strange semi-custom connectors for Tekken 3 arcade pcb?

One of my favourite video game series of all time.

Tekken 1 through 4 were great. Fondest memories playing 2 and 3.

One of those rare series where the newest one is better than the older ones. Except for 4 of course.

It really makes you look at his ending in T1 differently. It's kind of funny that he's actually worse than Heihachi at this point, especially since he continues to act like a dick after gaining control over his devil side.

I'm aware the story in a fighting game is missing the forest for the trees, but I really wish Tekken had a more concrete one.

What the fuck is Yoshimitsu's deal, is he even human?

What's with all the various Kings?

Is Jin truly evil now?

What happened to Jun?

What's Angel?

Are you talking about the kick harness? To connect to the extra buttons? Google Tekken/Namco kick harness.

Overrated juggle fighter with stupid designs and slow/clunky mechanics.

VF/DOA/Soul Calibur are all way more fluid and more fun.

The King in the first two was killed by Ogre and the King from 3 onward is his successor.

Angel represented the influence Jun had on Kazuya and Jin. It was a yin to Devil's yang. When Jun died, that influence disappeared and all that was left was Devil.

My friend and I still play a lot of Tekken 3, though it usually just boils down to Brian vs Nina marathons.

Yes, though his dominant hand was replaced with a cybernetic hand.

>What's with all the various Kings?

Armor King 1 and King 1 are dead. In their steads, Armor King 2 is AK1's brother, and K2 is K1's student.

>Is Jin truly evil now?
Not in the least, he saved the world from Azrael in T6.

>What happened to Jun?
Killed by Ogre after T2.

>What's Angel?
A representation of Kazuya's good side, which hasn't been seen since T2 because Kazuya is a complete asshole.

>yoshi's story
actually yoshimitsu is a sort of comic relief character. his backstory got changed for the first few games. he began as a "automaton" in t1, and i even think i read he was an alien in on of the games as well.
but by now he is the leader of the manji clan, a group of robin hood like ninjas. got his hand replaced by bosconovitch, and in my head he humped kunimitsu

>jun's fate
supposed to be killed by ogre, but never explained.
jun is more or less an angel, and unknown is an evil power using her as a medium. equivalent to kazuyas devil and angel, or jins devil side that got triggered once he found out about xiaouyu and hwoararararang

I always thought it was a pretty bad game and never really understood the popularity, especially nowadays among people who play fighting games seriously. When I was younger I played it since everyone had it, myself included.

There was always one kid I hung out with who was obsessed with yoshimitsu and swore that if you "mastered him" he was the best character in the game, dude was obsessive and never shut up about it. Then when we actually played the game he either told you to wait and not do anything while he tried to do that hara-kiri move or just spammed his one-button spinning combos that made yoshi all dizzy and fall down, playing it off like a joke when he lost and obsessing over replays on the odd occasion he snatched a win.

Tekken, not even once.

Fun casual game but I felt bad for all of the PS1 kids who never got to see it running in the arcade beside Virtua Fighter 2 to realize how shit the early Tekken games really were.

I like it but 99% because of nostalgia for T2 and T3. They're both horribly balanced. Soul Calibur games are much superior in gameplay, though arguably worse in design.

First PlayStation game I ever saw was Tekken 2 at my friend's house. I was 9 or 10. He was telling me about PlayStation at school and I had no idea what it was, told me I had to go to his house to play it and so I did. The graphics COMPLETELY blew my mind. He also had Twisted Metal 2 and we played the shit out of it. Man... going home to the SNES was painful that day even with DKC2 in the machine.
