I notice the AI could extend holds so damn long to the point your health bar is empty. This is especially true in the Street Fighter 2 series (especially SSFT2 and HSF2) where Zangief and Blanka controlled by the AI on hardest can simply grab your character and keep biting nonstop till the health bar literally looks empty on screen and you like have 1 point of health left.
I tried all sort of things from tapping while you caught your enemy to moving the left and right but I never could extend the hold that long.
Is it even possible to do this? If so how?
