Top 10 Fighting Games with the Most Disappointing RosterThese are the fighting games either good or bad whose roster ends up feeling very dissapointing.
The Top Ten
Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was such an anticipated game unfortunately the game failed to live up to all the hype one of the reasons is the roster they mostly brought back a lot of the same characters from the last MVC game only bringing in a small number of new characters and worst of all no X-Men characters seriously what the hell, for me I was really disappointing that they didn't bring in as much new characters for the series there were so many characters both from Marvel and Capcom that I really wanted to see in the game who had never been in a Marvel vs Capcom fighting game. - egnomac
The returning casts are fine choices, but I wish they kept most of the cast from SCIV. The new characters aren't bad at all, they just weren't given much depth and there wasn't a Arcade mode with each individual's ending, which is pretty sour. Although I can spare almost all of the new characters, Patroklos is easily the worst fighting game protagonist I have ever seen. I would have preferred Pyrrha as the protagonist as she does have some development, because Patroklos is a whiny, arrogant and overall unlikable guy.
Let's hope SCVI manages to redeem the roster by including all of the main cast (It's a reboot after all), while also (hopefully) deliver some justice to the new characters of SCV should they decide to include them. - CrimsonShark
Easily one of the most disappointing rosters that I've ever seen in a fighting game, next to 2017's Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, to date. And you can thank then-director Daishi Odishima for the completely unnecessary timeskip and god-awful main characters, along with the game having three mimicry characters, for this mess of a cast.
The roster is mostly filled with Street Fighter Characters from Street Fighter II, III & Alpha then there are Darkstalker characters without Morrigan who next to Felicia is the face of the series then there are The Red Earth characters who are just plain weird. - egnomac
Despite having plenty of well known Playstation characters like Jak, Ratchet, Sweet Tooth, Nathan Drake, Kratos, Parrapa, and other iconic PS characters there were so many more deserving characters that were left out like Spyro, Lara Croft & worst of all no Crash Bandicoot who was basically the unofficial mascot for the PlayStation back in the 90s. - egnomac
The third Mk game was decent but the roster kind of lacked in comparison to the second with no Scorpion, Kitana, Melina or Reptile thankfully in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 they fixed all that by including all the Ninja characters along with Ermac, Noob Saibot, Classic Sub-Zero as well as Kitana, Melina and Jade. - egnomac
The only returning characters from Street Fighter II were Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li & Akuma the rest of the roster was made up of new characters though many of them were pretty intresring however many of them were too weird & strange that it turned off long time fans that a lot of their favorites were absent. - egnomac
MK4 was a hit and miss while it featured some of the usual familiar characters like Sub-Zero, Sonya, & Raiden some of the new characters were completely forgettable like Jereks, Kai, Reiko and it would be the last time most of them were seen again until MK Armageddon. - egnomac
This is the same exact game as the other Super Street Fighter II games with the same exact characters and the only new additions are Evil Ryu and Violent Ken who are nothing more than super version's of Ken & Ryu they could have at least added some more new characters. - egnomac
While it is the first Mortal Kombat game and is understandable that they would have less characters than the sequels but with only 7 playable characters it makes me wish that they could at least have added two more playable characters. - egnomac
