Tekken Producer Isn’t Happy with Series Fans
First Nintendo takes a shot at gamers, and now Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada takes a shot. We should probably get behind a few overturned tables and wait until all the shots have finished flying.
As seen on Twitter, Harada said that fans should really stop and think about what they’re saying before they start complaining and learn to be an adult.
“I have something I want to say to the people who spam me with requests to ‘switch back to the voice actors used previously’,” he tweeted. “I believe that, before whining and complaining about everything, you need practice at taking a step back and analysing things objectively. And also at being an adult.”
Perhaps it’s an illustration of Reggie Fils-Aime’s claim that gamers are hard to please and are “insatiable,” always wanting more. Harada went into some detail about the complaints, pointing out that decades-old data in games aren’t always suitable for current hardware.
“The Tekken series has continued for 17 years,” wrote Harada. “The development environment, as well as the environment in which you all play games, has changed.
“I will continue to sincerely comply with fan requests. However, I can’t continue to engage the negative ones that, without knowing what you are talking about, or even thinking about what you are saying, blindly repeat ‘bring back, bring back, bring back.’
“After this lengthy explanation, I will be quite surprised if there are still people who still don’t get it. Thanks for understanding or not understanding. Whatever.”
Er…maybe we should just stop complaining so much? After all, Nintendo’s getting fed up with it too.
