This is the version of SFV we should have got years ago. Fighting games need to be released as complete packages. None of this "Oh, we've got six new fighters on the way, if you just give us another $40 for our season pass." nonsense.

Frankly, the biggest problem with SFV wasn't the lack of content it launched with. The real shit show was the expensive season passes and how much time it takes to unlock things.

The update is free. The grind for characters is real, but you can get the characters without buying them. It's still cheaper than the old model. I played SF in SNES era. SF2 was over $70, Turbo was $60, and SS2 was $60. That's $190. With no free option for characters. SFV even if you bought the season passes, hasn't come close to that.

@Dark Requiem There was only really just SFII World Warrior, and SSFII back then. Yes, Turbo existed but it didn't add anything all that new. At least not in the console versions. BTW I also played SFII back then. Was 7 when Sonic first came out.

Season passes are $30, not $40. I can't speak for Arcade Edition, it's not out yet. I post at SRK, there several posters there that have all the characters and haven't bought one season pass. Heck SFV with both season passes was $32 last December for games that like to wait on sales deals. ArcSys, Netherealm, Namco, and Tecmo all have character DLC, non of them provide a way to earn their characters for free.

So thats an excuse for ridiculously over priced Season passes, costumes, and stages?

Kudos for having an unlock option, but the grind is so long that buying to unlock is appealing. But unlock prices are so high people dont want to pay. So it sucks either way.

When Alex launched for SFV in 2016. I had already earned 400k in fight money. That's enough for 4 characters. Just save your FM for characters. My main issue is that no one seems to call out all the other developers but seem to crap on Capcom for the one thing they did well. Give people a way to earn characters without spending cash. I went after Capcom hardcore for the on disc DLC nonsense for Street Fighter X Tekken. The lack of single player content in SFV was inexcusable. The FM money system however is something I wish all fighting games had. The current industry standard is $5 dollars or more per DLC fighter.

On paper being able to unlock everything sounded great, but some of us rather pay because the long grind is not an option. But the season passes cost as much as the game, even more if you include Season 3. They dont even have much content. Its was grossly implemented. Its even more disgusting unlocking a character doesent include a stage. SFV is one the worst case scenarios for games with grinding and microtransactions.

For the record, Im fond of SFV as a game, but this crap literally has me playing it less.

And one last thing... Sometimes Ive considered double dipping and getting it on PC. But then I consider the grinding and dont bother.
