    I say yes, T6 was garbage, each version is just recycled content and characters from previous ones with nothing changed. Theres a reason why T6 sold like shit and is now $30 new.:wtc: They really need to bring some innovation to this franchise. Soul calibur 4 (while not great) still slaughters Tekken 6.

    Haven't touched Tekken since 3, doesn't seem like they ever add anything new.

    yeah I agree, Tekken 6 sucked ass, I still play online from time to time though. Soul Calibur 4 was better, but I still don't get why they changed Soul Calibur after 2 which was one of the best fucking fighting games ever IMO :dunno:

    I think the Tekken games sold because of their timing...and not so much because they were amazing games. Now that the timing isnt there, the sales arent there.

    PSOne Tekken was new, and came out on or around launch. Then they released 2 and 3 while there was still interest with just enough new shit to make the kids who had unknown boners for the first one, NEED 2 and 3. They were both really good games at the time...but looking back, 3 wasnt much of an improvement from 2...it just seemed exciting at the time. 2 was a Huge step from 1 though...but that's the same game they keep making. Tekken 2.

    Then PS2 came out and what's one of the first games you can get for it? Tekken Tag Tournament. I worked at Babbages (Gamestop) when PS2 and all the launch games came out. That game was HUGE and it wasnt because it was a super awesome/fun game to play. It was because it was like, the ONLY fighting game available at the time, it had these new graphics no one had seen before. It was slightly impressive in all areas, but overall was just tekken again. And most people bought at least 2-4 games with the system. There werent many choices for PS2 games initially so most launch buyers had it...it sold well...

    I think by Tekken 4, most people were sick of Tekken. I remember that one getting bad reviews. I stopped at Tag Tournament...and I'm glad. I played Dark Resurrection on PSP, and it was cool for about an hour but its just the same Tekken 2 over and over and over.

    The last good Tekken was Tekken 3.

    Tekken PSP was good though.

    But yeah, Virtua Fighter series > Tekken series.
