For me it was watching MK9 fatalities with my friends that got me into fighting games. I watched how gruesome and creative they were, that sparked my passion for fighting games. When I’m fighting and see something happen with my character I try to memorize the buttons I hit in what order to do that again. It’s figuring that stuff out which I get the enjoyment out of.

This is why I hate injustice 2. You actually do get better stats, and a level one vs twenty, you will die in two hits. I prefer injustice 1, mortal kombat x, and mortal kombat vs dc. I want to get into marvel vs capcom infinite.

Fighting games are for nerds that can’t win a fight in real life

To everyone who bellyaches that fighting games are too hard, let me tell you this: I ended up teaching my wife, who had never played a video game in her life and just enjoyed watching me play, into virtua fighter just so I could have someone to play with who wasnt specifically online. After four months of playing she got to master rank with goddamn Akira of all people.
This states two things: 1) fighting game are only difficult because you made it difficult in your mind and 2) it really sucks being a virtua fighter fan.

i watched this video around the time it first came out, and it's what convinced me to get ultimate. I'm still a bit of a casual but i became genuinely interested in fighting games overall largely because of this video and really enjoy them whether just watching or actually playing

just weird environment tbh with how tournaments play compared to when playing with your friends,lemme explain a bit what mean. Tier lists become big problem when all see is same 4 top tier characters over n over again so if not into top tiers makes things difficult. Also the lack of fun environment when everyone is just punishing n whiffing n playing defensive so gotta devise strategy deal with spamming fireballs/projectiles or watching somebody just waiting it out too scared even mix it up n get close...all just leads to less fun n ppl getting bored.

6:26 I watched that match live. If you want a lesson on how top card game players manage luck through skill, you wont find a much better example. Good choice in clip!

My buddies and I were really into fighting games such as Tekken 5, Marvel v.s. Capcom 2, Guilty Gear XX Core, Super Smash bros. & Mortal Kombat back in high school & I remember we would practice at our houses and go to our favorite arcade at West Edmonton Mall (R.I.P. Circuit Circus) & we would challenge other people, good times

I play fighting games but I’m strictly a casual player and I’m definitely not good at performing combos either. I’m just trying to find a way to play my favorite fighting games on my preferred console because right now Tekken 3 is one of my favorite fighting games but I can’t play it on the switch or PS4 if I wanna play it I have to use my PS3 but I unfortunately don’t like the controller anymore because it’s too small. Then i consider the fact that I could play Naruto: ultimate ninja storm since I have that on my switch and PS4 but I kind of want to play the traditional style fighting games like street fighter or Tekken. I ended up buying a bunch of games recently some of them being fighting games so I guess I’ll use quarantine as a chance to learn one of them

You hate sports because you are delusional to believe superbowl is something relevant.
A world cup is relevant, olympics are relevant, not a yearly private national final of a game only people of one country plays.
And you're not REALLY into fightgames until you learn to play KOF 2002 and win some matches in fightcade.

I find it funny that Smash---or Melee, anyway---is "really goddamn hard" (21:10) when the point of Smash was that it was supposed to be the easier alternative to other fighting games. The especially funny thing is that what makes Smash so great is its hard and unintentional mechanics (everything from wavedashing in Melee to perfect pivoting in Smash 4).
