So, while Im replaying GudaGuda 3 and enjoying Sakamoto and Oryu again, I was thinking about how the GudaGuda welfares are my favorite kind of welfare servant.
I mean, not talking from a Gamepay perspective and usefulness of the servants, but GudaGuda is the only regular event that has Welfare servants that are original, makes sence and are a genuine characters and not some fanservice version like Artoria wearing a Santa hat. Yeah, I like Summer/Santa/Halloween welfares as much as everyone, but I cant really buy the arguments for that servants to really exist as different versions of the originals, in my head the only way to justify their existance is thinking that they are the original selfs just being dorks and wearing customes. Thats why I really dont use them in History Mode… Its like throwing away any chance of being inmersed in the plot. So, yeah, that “No real reason for exist” kind of servant is in my case relegated to farming and doing events that doesnt require a serious perspective (unless that Im stucked and I really cant beat a stage without one of them, but that hasnt been the case in a long long time). Even with some of my favs like Rider Mordred and Darthoria, that arent welfares but still goofy even related versions of another servant, I cant ignore the feeling of them being fake and breaking the suspension of disbelieff if I play them in History.
The Gudacrew, in the other hand, even having some crazyness and weird aspects, are real new characters with a real background and a real reason to exist, instead of some made up bullshit to have one of our Waifus wearing something sexy/cute. We could have them being part of the main plot in a Singularity or Lost Belt, or any event not related to GudaGuda, and they still make sence to exist in the game.
So, anyone feels the same way about welfares? or do you just value them on the gameplay aspects? or maybe do you prefer the fanservice factor? Or are all of them at the same time? I mean, Ryoma is good gameplay wise, he’s a genuine new character and also could be a husbando (he, good look dealing with Oryu).
