"You just watched an insanely long video telling you how to play a vide ogame so I think you have at least a little bit of free time."

How dare you.

Fighting games feel lonely without a local scene. Real lonely.

I picked Lil Mac cause I thought he was cool. It's my first smash game.

I regret nothing.

I love how MK11 has an incredibly complex and informative tutorial. I’m pretty experienced, and even I learned some new things. It’s also great for newcomers.

Mortal Kombat 11 and Smash ultimate are my games. Fighting games really make you feel like you're in the tournament Arc lol

People need to wake up to the idea that fighting games can be fun. People give up because there is a steep learning curve. But if you stick with it, keep pushing you get to the point where a match becomes a piece of art, you see the amazing beauty and skill of execution of moves. You will learn to love fighting games and the characters that come with it. Just stick with it, its so worth it.

The perfect fighting game right now for newcomers is Samurai Shodown (2019). It focuses on anticipation rather than the ability to string long combos together. One normal attack can take away a quarter of life, but can also leave you completely vulnerable should it fail to connect. Straightforward mechanics, slower pace, yet still very satisfying to play.

You mentioned the guy who plays SF with just his mouth. There is a guy who played at Evo 2013 who was blind and get pretty far up. It was super amazing to watch.

Fighting Games are therapy for those that suffer from being pissed off from team competitive gaming.

"If you're playing Ken and you can't shoryuken, you're only using half the character."

I feel personally attacked.
