Every fighting game story is fucking dumb. GG was dumb as shit and got TOO anime for my tastes (with a bunch of weird retcons, Slayer able to get dunked on by Bedman? Nah fuck outta here.). INJ2 was probably the best, but the pacing was awful, Supergirl was insufferable, character fights feel like they happen just because (and half the cast is just written off and doesn't do all that much), and both Batman and Superman are insufferable. Tekken was bombastic but only the ending was good - everything else was a forced trainwreck. SFV was a saturday morning cartoon - all fluff and not much substance, taking the good and bad of that.
Fighting game story modes should just focus on providing as much fanservice as possible and dump the pretense that they'll be some heavy handed Bioshock shit. That'll be better for everyone involved.
