The axe that clears the forest
People who bitch about NRS story modes have clearly never played any other fighter's story modes.This.
Even if you don’t like where the story goes, there is no denying that NRS has the best story modes.
Just take Street Fighter V and Tekken 7. These are absolutely fucking AWFUL. I'm not even going to bother to play Guilty Gear Strive's. It's just way too weird and I don't care about the characters at all.
NRS has raised the bar for story modes but no one is even close to them in that aspect.
