“would you like to see more ar­cade-style wrestling games?” Face time

Games Master - - Fanbase -

I have been won­der­ing lately why sports games such as the WWE 2K se­ries have been con­cen­trat­ing on a sim­u­la­tion game­play style. With WWE it is sports en­ter­tain­ment where any­thing could hap­pen, but in the game it feels such a chore to play. THQ con­cen­trated on the ar­cade style of play, which made the game so much fun. Would you like to see more ar­cade-style wrestling games? Luke Thomp­son, email We do of­ten find it a lit­tle strange that the wrestling in those games is treated rel­a­tively re­al­is­ti­cally, when the thing it’s sim­u­lat­ing isn’t real in the first place. We’d love to see a WWE game that re­ally em­braces the scripted nature of it all – make it more about en­ter­tain­ing the crowd and play­ing up your char­ac­ter than de­tailed grap­pling sys­tems. But then, would that be break­ing kay­fabe?
