Retro gaming gives perspective to Tekken 7's Lucky Chloe having played Tekken on PSone

It's long been accepted that you can't please everyone, but lately it seems that pleasing anyone is a daunting task. Take a peek at social media for a minute or two and you're bound to find a war of words. One of the latest arguments surrounds Lucky Chloe being too plain and not "right" for Tekken 7.

I'm not even sure what that means. She's programmed into the game to kick ass. Is that not enough? I'm willing to bet there are plenty of other characters to play should one not wish to play her. I wonder how many of those questioning Chloe have played Tekken on the original PlayStation.

Tekken 7's Chloe Nina Williams was an original character from Tekken on the PSone and made appearances in all the main games. Comparing her Tekken 1 image to today's photo-realistic features is like comparing Indiana Jones on the Atari 2600 with Nathan Drake on the PS4.

Some characters progress across a franchise while others are added to balance out the mix.

Game disc and manual from the Original Tekken on the PSone I understad the arguments being made about Chloe when compared to some of the outrageous characters to come along. But having loved Tekken since it's inception back in the mid 90's, I think her upcoming inclusion will work out just fine. And... I can't help but think that trolling would be far less pervasive if more people read books... just a thought.
