Dead Or Alive 5 Outselling Expectations Thanks To Gamers Who Don’t Know HD Porn Is Widely Available

Video Games Made Me Do It: "Though the title hasn’t received much attention from the gaming community as a whole, Koei Tecmo is reportedly celebrating what has amounted to a cult hit in their latest release. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is outperforming the publisher’s sales forecast thanks to strong early adoption numbers from gamers who still don’t know HD porn can be found all over the internet nowadays." *Satire*

Why are writers still trying to convince others that DOA sell because of attractive, half naked girls?

The game is actually a very good fighter. It having representation of women with juggling boobs doesn't take away from that.

I will admit though, that they have been trying to exploit the fact that some are fixated with that aspect of the game.

But the game is a very varied and entertaining fighter.

Because these writters are just as perverted as the people that they claim are the only ones buying and can only see DoA as some japanese sex sim game.

Agree DoA is very underrated as far as technical fighting games go and DoA 5 is great fighting game.

"Dead Or Alive 5 Outselling Expectations Thanks To Gamers Who Don’t Know HD Porn Is Widely Available"

What a clickbait title. I think people who own an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 know how to view HD porn, if they so desired. The author with his SJW opinions, fails to comprehend that some people know Dead or Alive is a game and simply want to play it.

OtherSider937d ago

Claiming that sex appeal is what is selling DOA5 does not detract from the fact that DOA series is a great fighting series. Yes it is a greater fighter, and undoubtedly without the sex appeal it would also sell well. But with the sex appeal it will sell much better.

Baka-akaB937d ago

You're asking those writers to understand the appeal of fighting games , to begin with , when they usually can just wing it and fake it .

And then there is that slly trend that wont die of criticizing anything with T&A or "racy" content . There is no washing away that stigma , and no reason to care about their opinions

Because being the only 3D Fighting game available on Next Gen consoles could never have anything to do with it

Bolts937d ago

Being able to fight in 3D is not a make or break feature. Aside from the boobies the DoA series do have an excellent and highly kinetic fighting system. I don't play fighting games a lot but I actually prefer DoA over SF.

Baka-akaB937d ago

BArely anything to do with it . DOA5 was outselling Tekken tag 2 for a while on ps3/360 .

The serie has renewed with success with it's gameplay changes

Last Round outselling because it is

-one of the few current generation fighting games available
-it is packed with content
-is more fast paced than other fighters
-is more accessible on the surface level than other fighters
But more importantly, it is selling because:

-IT'S A GOOD GODDAMN FIGHTING GAME AND WHETHER IT HAD TITS OR NOT WOULD NOT HAVE INFLUENCED MY PURCHASE. I GOT LAST ROUND DAY 1 ON PS4 AFTER ONLY HAVING PLAYED THE ORIGINAL RELEASE BACK IN 2012 AND I HAVEN'T HAD THIS MUCH JUST PURE FUN IN A PS4 GAME YET SO STOP BEING IDIOTS AND PREACHING NOTHING

EDIT

it's also launched at $40 instead of $60. Don't belittle the quality of a game because you're a dumb social justice warrior. Get out. Whoever wrote this article has no place writin opinion pieces on video games or ANYTHING about video games. This author has no credibility with his inherent stupidity shown by this article.

"WHETHER IT HAD TITS OR NOT WOULD NOT HAVE INFLUENCED MY PURCHASE"

LIAR LIAR SALTY PANTS CAN'T CATCH FIRE!!! lol

Gwiz937d ago

Shit i get to fiddle with real tits for the price of this game.

Darkwatchman937d ago

Wait....it shows satire at the end after the quote now and I do not remember seeing that when it was first posted...could it be because of negative backlash?

lizard81288936d ago

TBH, the $40 price tag was the main selling point for me. I have only played the 3ds version, which was very fun. Plus they are also doing a free-to-pay type deal, where you can play the game for free, but gotta pay for characters, ect, which is fine.

DOA is a solid fighting game.

WeAreLegion937d ago

TNA doesn't matter when you match them up with generic face models. Seriously. Are they just replicating mannequins? These games sell because of the gameplay.

JohnathanACE937d ago

The game is selling well because its the definitive edition of a good game. Is that so hard to wrap your head around? Also since when did skimpy costumes equal porn?

Bolts937d ago

Politics pure and simple. The beta males and femi Nazis hate this game just like how they hate BF Hardline because of "police brutality".

TheJacksonRGN937d ago

While this is stupid. This is also a satire article.
