Tekken 7




Page Updated:  Dec. 14th, 2018

I always give fighting game guest characters a "chance"... and even if I end up not liking them, I always have fun writing about them here in my character overview. This particular character allows me to rant about The Walking Dead as a series, so here I go. :) Negan is obviously a very weird and ridiculous choice for TEKKEN... but Bandai Namco / Tekken Project continues to "show off" by demonstrating that they can literally take any character, even a real actor from a live action TV show, and make them a TEKKEN character.

I was actually a fan of TWD when it was in its first season, and watched it religiously until about Season 6 - when I stopped watching because the writing turned to horse-shit, and yeah, this was around the time Negan was introduced. TWD actually had a solid storyline and great character development in the earlier seasons, but the writing and storytelling became so bad that it literally began to "insult" the intelligence of its viewers. AMC is a desperate company desperate to get viewers in any way they can. Clearly the writers ran out of ideas for TWD, and the only people left actually watching the show were horror fans who don't care about storylines. Personally I think Negan mostly an unlikable character, unless you're an actual psychopath who likes characters who murder people for no reason, of course. As a TEKKEN character, it'll be interesting seeing a character fighting with a weapon at all times... but my expectations remain low.
