Hi all, a week ago I was "youtubing" and saw a couple of vids of EVO, and I told myself I wanted to start taking FGs seriously.
I played (in my kid days) Virtua Fighter, Soul Calibur, Street Fighter, Guilty Gear...etc
I have 0 experience in any fighter aside of fighting against the CPU lol.
I'm completely sure I have 0 local scene, If i get decent online I will go to tournaments but the netcode is a must.
I've been looking for information about the fighting games released and I still have doubts.
I don't like anime fighters so Blazblue and Persona are out.
I want it to have a big community, so Virtua Fighter (plus VF6 being a perhaps) and SoulCalibur (sad because they look so good on vids) are out.
Dead or Boobs 5 is out.
Mortal Kombat looks a good option with big community but the game isw easy (as I've read).
KOF XIII could be a good option if it weren't for the netcode (which I read is bad).
I don't like the games that relies heavily on combos so Tekken and Marvel are out.
I've read a lot of complains about SfxT about being retarded, easy, etc, so is out.
And... that leaves Street Fighter as an option, with huge community, great netcode and no combo heavy.
The problem I have if I start with SF is the following.
Is it worth starting with SF now?
Do you think Crapcom will tur SF into a crappy franchise making the game noob friendly like SFxT?
Thanks all for your time.
