No one is being ignorant. They just don't belong in this game. Deal with it or leave.

You wanna know the big difference between the Greek Myth Zeus and God of War Zeus? Greek Myth Zeus didn't father a child named Kratos that would eventually come back to kill him, and cause a lot of problems for the world he rules.

The reason that Zeus is in this game is because he's the big bad of on of Sony's biggest franchises and actually does things that are not in the original Greek Myth. He originated from Greek Myth, yes, but this is Sony's take on the character.

And the reason that is different from putting a character from a **bleep** anime in is because anime characters are no different in their games than they are in their shows. Now stop acting like you know everything and just shut up.

There were some Harry Potter games on the PS2. Should we put Harry Potter in PlayStation All-Stars?

No that whole "But anime games had huge success on Playstation" argument is completely void.

Those games are based off the anime. GoW is inspired by Greek Mythos, but takes a different twist on it. So it's not the same thing.

Oh, big surprise, anime games are popular. Newsflash, they're popular because people who actually like the shows buy them. Their popularity doesn't mean anything for Playstation, nor any other console they're sold on, their popularity speaks for the popularity of the anime in which the games are based on. Just because it sells well doesn't mean anything, otherwise we'd have a Call of Duty character in this game, and we all know that's a terrible idea as well.

woah wait. why not call of duty characters. they are video game based. whats the reasoning for them not to be in here? If no anime characters why not call of duty characters. Judging on EVERYONES description of an all star they would fit. There is literaly no arguement against them being in this game. You cant use the "not exclusive arguement" anymore so a rep from CoD should of been day 1 for this game "its a celebration of VIDEO GAME characters" as Retrosoul has added 326429784629567 times. why not one of the highest selling franchises characters? HMMMMMM! Ignorant people that dont like change or different ideas that is all.

No. It's because you don't seem to understand anything were saying. That's why your an idiot. I'm not arguing. I'm just making a statement about how foolish you apparently are.

Adding a Call of Duty character is a bad idea because very little people would want one in (In fact, people would be pretty mad if one made it in), their gameplay woud just be generic use of guns and explosives, and they don't have a lot of "character" to them. I used that as an example because sales shouldn't determine whether a character should make it in. Call of Duty sells a lot, doesn't mean the character belongs in here. Similar case with anime characters, their games sell, but it doesn't make they belong in this game.

I disagree with Newman but I think you should edit your offensive comment. I have been getting in the habit of reporting offensive threads so we can get moderators in here to keep the community clean and productive.

 

I don't think CoD characters would do well in this game because they aren't dynamic characters with unique movesets. CoD is better represented by a stage or weapon than a character. The analogies are getting further and further from the actual issue that anime characters do not represent video game history. They represent anime history.

 

Edit: The video games they are in are what is celebrating anime history. Putting them in PSAS would be celebrating a celebration. It's too far from the original. Zeus being in here is celebrating a game, not greek mythology. Goku would be a representation of a game that celebrates an anime. There is a degree of separation that I think disqualifies anime characters as all-stars.
