For months, I've been trying to figure out why I HATE Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale. I initially thought it was the fact that it's a blatant rip-off of Nintendo's Smash Brothers franchise. But I've played games that copied other games and they didn't bother me at all... so that couldn't be it. So what then?!? Why do I hate this game so much? 

I think I found the answer...


Sony is copying the wrong fighting game!


With characters like Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Cole MacGrath, Colonel Radec, Big Daddy, Solid Snake and Nathan Drake, Sony shouldn't be copying Smash Brothers, they should be copying Mortal Kombat! Yes, that would do the trick - Mortal Kombat would be a much better fit! If Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale was a less violent version of Mortal Kombat, I'd go from despising the game to making it a day-one purchase.

Think about it...


Cole MacGrath is Raiden



Solid Snake is a male Sonya Blade



Nathan Drake is Johnny Cage



Kratos is Baraka



Sweet Tooth is Kano



Colonel Radec is Cyrax



Parappa is Liu Kang



Big Daddy is Goro



And of course, Kevin Butler is Shang Tsung! (credit to Chris Mrkvicka)



See what I mean? So as I was saying, I think if Sony copied MK instead of SB, Battle Royale would be a must-have title for a lot more gamers.



Er... I mean... BATTLE ROYALE!


This blog is mostly intended to be humorous, though it is a serious suggestion. It's not the Smash Brothers gameplay, but the... Nintendo vibe that doesn't seem to fit Sony's roster, which is mostly made up of more mature characters that lend themselves to violence. Personally, I'd rather see them copy a more mature fighting game if they're going to just straight-up copy something, HAHA!
