my brother plays that game all day and when I ask him to play something else with me he starts to cry. I hope my mum stops giving him money because he spends it all in games, the stupid idiot thinks he's a gamer for having 200 games on steam of which he only have played 10. Damn, stupid kid I wish I had his luck when I was his age… He even gets to eat fancy asian food which I've never got the taste of when I was that young because we were piss poor.

I played it back in the day but at the time I preferred mortal kombat.

Then 3d fighters came out which were my true jam. I just don't like 2d/2.5d fighters all that much.
I miss the fighting game genera but I haven't really played much, and nothing new since I switched over to PC only.
I know that Saga will probably never port my favorite fighting game to PC or make a new one in the next decade if ever, but there really must be a 3d fighter out there that I can play on my PC that is really worth my time.
Maybe the new Soul Caliber will be as good as 2 (didn't really like any of the others after), or the upcoming DoA game if they don't censor it to hell, or maybe I should just bite the bullet and get good at Tekken.
IDK, there hasn't been something that really stood out to me as must play when it comes to 3d fighters on the PC. 90% of the fighting game focus seems to be on 2.5d stuff that I just am not into.

>>45145
Before non-shit online play was a thing playing the computer excessively was required and expected. To truly get good you still would have to occationally play skilled human opponents, but if you don't care about something like that then there are a lot of fighting games that have a lot of content and suport for solo play.
Actually the game I am playing now is great in that regard (soul caliber 6). The last few MK games and the injustice games are also known for their great story mode and single player experience.

My sister always used to beat me by button mashing on any fighting game, while I played like a pro. Anyone else have that experience? How the hell does it work.

 No.45567

>>45566
i did the same, beat all my friends in school back then in every fighting game by mashing buttons, enraging some of them really hard because they felt they were pro and knowledgeable. the secret is timing, while you waste time on thinking about your moves and combos i just hit the button when my intuition tells me, i have more awareness and calmness. once i caught you off guard you will just panic making even more mistakes while i button mash you to death. i doubt this would work against a real pro whos an expert in countering, but people like you are usually those half serious players that only think about offense and never spent a second training defense, so when their offense fails they die.

I´d only give that label to sports games and CoD. Because is exactly what you find in the library of a person who owns a console but doesn´t care about games or media very much.

The classic convo when you enter some normie´s living room: Fifa, some shooter and maybe a racing game or GTA next to the bottle of tequila. Is the stuff people buy almost by default.

I always like to spam with Sagot and generally play hyper aggressively. But I am not really a fan of SF and 2d fighters in general. Though MK was a lot of fun with other people back in the day. Super shit hitboxes and imbalanced as fuck though so never got serious about it.

fighting games are a nearly exclusively companion-centric thing and you will be forever shit unless you hang out with people IRL regularly.
these normalfags you will be forced to play with are constantly moving on to "the next big thing". if you like a game and want to play it, you will be playing it completely alone soon, within a year probably, making all of your practice and money invested worthless instantly. you know how many people are playing street fighter IV still? zero. you know how many iterations that game had and how much DLC it has? probably $900 worth. all worthless now cause no one plays it. if you suggest to play it they'll say "wtf dude no, i'm practicing this new anime fighter, besides that game is shit and broken" because every old game is "shit" even though they liked it at the time.
the normalfags you are forced to play with are braindead apes that talk in buzzwords and memes and use weird coded twitter language that will take you a year to learn on its own. when they try to "help" you, they'll talk in this weird coded language and think you're a retard for not understanding. they'll just think you're a retard in general and ostracize you in under 12 hours.

also i don't know if you care about this or not but most local fighting game hangouts have 0 white people, or their one white person will be a succubus/tranny.

it is a complete waste of time, money and energy.

Other than the obvious (practicing a lot) just watch other people play your character and get the frame data. I got competent at tekken in no time and I had never played it before.

Yea, I've noticed fighting games seem to appeal a lot to niggers, spics, and mentally deranged whites. I'm assuming most people in this thread are non-white.

 No.46567

I can't stand playing multiplayer games since the other players tend to be like rubbing against sandpaper, but you get better at them by doing the "training mode" and learning all of the "frame data" so that you know that doing, say, 236 a (down, down forward,forward, horizontal) is less frames than your opponents attack, or that your opponent will do something like parry, so you do a slow break attack.

Played a bunch of Soulcalibur VI this way. Got pretty good but mostly because I don't watch or copy other people but instead make up my own gameplan based on what other people do.

 No.46591

I have never payed much attention to frame data in all honesty.
I do however pay attention to hitboxes and the various states (invulnerability frame, hit stun, etc.).
I rather develop a sense of timing and spacing from playing the game, espcially with well made ai, then doing tech drills in practice mod and counting frame in replays. Maybe with such a mind set I will not be world class competative level, but I have a lot more fun and still am able to do relatively well in casual play.
Besides, the single player of a lot of fighting games now days is actually pretty good. You can have a lot of fun without knowing anyone who also plays, going to tournaments, or having a superb ping in online match ups.

So like everything else in my life?
Whatever should I do!
I think the only time I played a game against someone else was once when a neighbor allowed me into their house, since then I've literally only play alone or random online matches. It's not too uncommon from what I hear, those people are just obviously not gonna be in tournies much
>also i don't know if you care about this or not but most local fighting game hangouts have 0 white people, or their one white person will be a succubus/tranny.
the international appeal of the genre is one of the things that I find fascinating honestly
Also being an outsider in a public space, how could I ever deal with that

try going to any local fighting game meet up and finding just 1 person who would agree to play any of those games more than one round as a novelty.
the second a new guilty gear comes out, xrd 2 will be dropped like a rock and people who previously loved it and bought all dlc will claim it's shit and unbalanced.
even if the new game in the series is literally manure, ala SFV, MvC:I, the new dead or alive, normalfag fighting game "enthusiasts" will play them anyways and drop the old (superior) predecessor.

i've asked many of them why they do this, and the response I sometimes get (besides propagating that the old superior game is "bad" like a retard like previously mentioned) is "i play it because of the EVO money" even though none of them ever go to EVO and if they did would never ever win anyway.
whatever is paying at EVO is what these retards will play.
