    I don't even understand why you wouldn't shake hands. It's such a minor and mild form of respect, and therefore, what's the harm in doing it? Too cool to shake? Bullshit. I don't know what your parents taught you, but show some respect. If you don't want to shake hands, just say good game. I don't care if you don't mean it.

    I think you misunderstand the concept of a handshake... That's where the problem lies here. You're saying "Yeah I'll shake your hand after working my ass off on the basketball court but street fighters a game", okay, great. What about when you go for a job interview? Handshaking is merely a gesture of acknowledgement I guess more than anything. Manners I suppose. You do it to be polite.
    fuck that. if some guy interviewing me for a job wants to shake my hand, ill tell him to kiss my ass. shake your own damn hand, im not gonna do you for you. you want me to give you a reach around too? this aint a porno set or an alley behind a bar. this aint like a sport, if you want a handshake you better shoot some crumple up paper free throws into the waste basket, then ill think about it. if you wanna hire me, you better just be ready to hire it up and keep it movin, i dont have time for fuckin hand shakes. do you know how much time we waste in a lifetime shaking hands? like a months worth. all because of horseshit like 'social etiquette' and 'courtesy'. i dont abide by the laws of the man, man, i play by my own rules, dance to the beat of my own drum, fuck that, im not dancin, you cant make me dance, im not giving into the man, i dont put up with that bullshit. when i finish a match, i yank my stick out so hard the console flies off the table and onto the ground, fuck it, it aint mine anyway. not trying to be a jerk but thats just how i do things.

    I've got nothing against handshakes but the 3rd option seems most suitable for me to vote for since I'm not in a paticular hurry to do it either if the other guy doesn't want to.

    That said, manners cost nothing, if someone wants to shake your hand there is no reason not to, it's just the polite thing to do, is a couple of seconds of your life really that important to you?

    If someone is being loud, rude, generally abrasive I won't shake their hand. You can't be a belligerent oaf one minute and then a gentleman the next. That's like me laying my jacket down in some mud for a girl to walk across and then I tell her if she wasn't overweight she could have hopped across it.

    There have only been 2 out of maybe 100 in which I haven't shaken hands after a tourney match. One being a very obnoxious player that started yelling at me during the match using expletives. I won't say his name but alot of people know him for this on the forums. Another being a player that complained during the match. They didn't want to shake hands anyway.

    Sorry in advance for quoting not one but two walls of text...
    In the past tournament players had to travel sometimes hundreds or even thousands of miles just to meet each other in a tournament. Oftentimes these tournaments were a once a year thing for the player or sometimes less than that. So the players may have spents hundreds of hours and dollars just to get to where they were at preparing for that single match in a tournament. For them the match was the culmination of a way of life, and a lot of time and effort.

    It is customary in such a situation to recognize that your opponent and yourself have most of these qualities in common. You might would even be friends if you knew each other or lived closer together.

    The handshake is a mutual greeting of respect between players the shows the recognition of this relationship. It also shows the importance of what is on the line, $$$ and respect. It is a ceremony that tells both players "this is a serious match" and they are saying to each other they are going to bring their A game.

    Among players who know each other personally this means that they are temporarily removing all restrictions. The mentor player will not go easy on his apprentice, and the brothers who have grown up playing together will use every dirty trick they know to win. Top tiers will be played. It also means that his match is a bragging rights match. This one matters.

    After the match the handshake also has a lot of meaning. It is a way of accepting the outcome of the match. It is a way of accepting defeat for the loser, and offering respect to to loser for having fought bravely. It is also a means for both players to exit "tournament mode" and go back to simply being fighting game enthusiasts and considering each other friends again.

    If someone doesn't want to shake hands before and after a match that is fine, but I would consider it their loss. They are missing out on one of the the greatest aspects of the tournament experience: the notion of being a "pro". Professionals always respect each other, even when they are on opposing sides of a conflict.

    To simply stare at the screen and refuse to acknowledge the efforts of a worthy opponent is egotistical, and sad. True top players would consider it childish. To refuse to shake the offered hand of a beginner opponent for that reason is even worse. The community doesn't need that. That is pure elitism, and I would caution you to not let the door hit you on your way out.

    I think this guy has the right idea here. As a "pro," win or lose, I will attempt to make some gesture of respect to my opponent, win or lose, I'll put an arm out there as soon as "KO" hits the screen for the last time. It's just how I was raised. I'm not on some silly shit like "slide hand xx fistbump," or my personal favorite, hand grab xx bro hug, but the man you've just been at war with deserves at the very least a handshake. It's no different than sport, you play ball at a competitive level, that shit's serious to you, therefore you feel inclined to shake hands with your opponents, hell, I do after every pickup game of football I've ever played, but for many of us here at SRK, fighting games are just as big a deal to us.
    fuck that. if some guy interviewing me for a job wants to shake my hand, ill tell him to kiss my ass. shake your own damn hand, im not gonna do you for you. you want me to give you a reach around too? this aint a porno set or an alley behind a bar. this aint like a sport, if you want a handshake you better shoot some crumple up paper free throws into the waste basket, then ill think about it. if you wanna hire me, you better just be ready to hire it up and keep it movin, i dont have time for fuckin hand shakes. do you know how much time we waste in a lifetime shaking hands? like a months worth. all because of horseshit like 'social etiquette' and 'courtesy'. i dont abide by the laws of the man, man, i play by my own rules, dance to the beat of my own drum, fuck that, im not dancin, you cant make me dance, im not giving into the man, i dont put up with that bullshit. when i finish a match, i yank my stick out so hard the console flies off the table and onto the ground, fuck it, it aint mine anyway. not trying to be a jerk but thats just how i do things.

    The way I see it in a tourney setting:

    All the time spent training and thinking, the money poured into this whole thing (entry fee, previous tourneys, gas money), all the other things I could be doing like not ditching my girlfriend or getting some work done, all the hype and expectation built up within yourself, only to come short and get knocked out of tourney? Fuck that. I'd be pretty fucking pissed off and I won't offer a hand. It hurts too much to lose, but if an opponent gives his hand out, of course I'll shake it.

    On the other end, if I kick your ass, then you shouldn't want to shake my hand. If you don't love the game to the point where it hurts to lose then you shouldn't be competing.

    As for casuals, it's all shit and giggles :p

    The people who don't shake hands "or perform other forms of respect" are usually the people who think they are hot shit but aren't.


    It's about etiquette, courtesy and respect.

    I always shake my opponents hand win or loss, I don't give a fuccccckkkkkkkkkkkkk.

    Well I'm not a dick. And I show respect for the other person I just beat or lost to. So I ALWAYS shake hands after a match. Not usually on casuals but always on tournament matches. Its about respect. If you don't shake hands I'm not going to flip a shit over it. But if I put my hand out, you see that I put it out, and you ignore it. Then you're a fucking douchebag.

    I'm not that great at fighters, I fall for mind games easy. I admit that. Tech stuff I can do but damn i fall for easy baits in most games....lol.

    I don't hype myself up at all to people, I don't talk smack. If someone wants to shake my hand, I shake it. And I shake people's hands when I win. I don't even think anything of it. If I extend and they don't do it, at first it hits me as "wtf?" but I never take it personally. Some people don't do it. They might not even mean it out of disrespect.

    I've fist pounded in casuals, but only with my close friends. In casuals I often say "good game" after wards, not even expecting anything back.

    One thing I tend to do, after a heated match (or even round) when i win (usually if it's close), I do a little victory air punch upwards. I don't know why, I've done it with everything since I was a kid. video games, sports, tests...

    I like to shake hands after good matches. I do it to both show respect to and thank my opponent. I feel like everyone that I play is a teacher, and I appreciate the game. I would bow to my sensei in karate, why not shake hands?

    I hate the little pussy hand shakes, though. Where there other dude grabs your fingers instead of palm to palm? I'm not asking you to dance, muthafucka.

    Something I want to mention because I love getting people to re-examine things:

    Dasrik made a similar thread exactly one year and one week and one day ago; it was sliiightly better received than this one. {link} Jimmy1200, the creator of this thread, was actually the first person to respond in that one.

    Dasrik commanded--and continues to command--a great deal of respect among the SRK community, and the way I hear it he rightfully earned every ounce of it by 1) knowing a ton about Marvel and 2) being a very genuine person.

    Just a reminder that it's good to stay open-minded about differing viewpoints and opinions.

    lol. ill see you at evo, sir. do as you please. :) would you like me to pm you what im wearing each day during evo? :) actually, i will, because i dont forget. :)

    am i the only who finds it funny how volatile some of you are towards me, when i mentioned nothing of being such a way towards anyone else, other then stating im not into shaking hands before or after matches.

    jimmy: nah, im not into shaking hands before and after matches. unplug and move on. wanna say good shit to each other. okay.

    random: fuck you, you ****** ass bitch! you dont wanna shake my hand if i put it out there.grab it!

    lol! but please continue to get so aggy over something so trivial. its funny at this point reading the heated replies.if im at a tourney, and me and whoever never shake, or really acknowledge each other much, im not gonna be thinking, damn, dude didnt even try to shake my hand, hes mad salty. its not like i havent done it before, but like i knew before, im not a fan, even when i have done it before. im just now full on not wanting to do it anymore. i dont know, i guess its just not that serious for me. we can say good shit, and move on if your ego needs it that much. i think if anyone is willing to get highly upset over someone not shaking their hand, they have personal issues they need to deal with. people act like you cant sit down, have some good matches, and move on without a handshake, or even saying good shit. i dont know, maybe some people got some major insecurities, but i dont feel the need to be complimented, or shown anything after a match. its cool to get acknowledged, but if i dont, im not sitting their thinking, yo, who the fuck do these dudes, or this guy, thinks he is.

    i think some people got some major insecurities in here, considering the amount of heat coming off some of these post.

    way to make a huge deal and "pop off" about the smallest thing. how pressing of an issue is this for you?

    you just have to know the timing. sometimes you do, sometimes you don't, it's not like some ultra fucking complicated procedure that you must do exactly right every single time. if it's casuals and maybe I've seen someone around before but havent got to meet them, or if its a buddy I'm greeting, then i'll do it. again, its no big deal...can't believe im even commenting on something so stupid.

    Also, for the record, why did you even bother to make this thread? You said it yourself that you didn't want to sound like a douche or tough guy or anything, when you clearly made this thread to try and rile shit up. You have your reasons for not shaking or anything, which I respect (though I don't exactly agree with), but why bother going ahead and announcing it to have everyone flame you? It's just like you're begging for attention, which kinda pisses me off. If you have your own personal code, that's fine, but you don't need to be proving yourself to the world when nobody is trying to challenge you.

    see, something is wrong with people on srk sometimes, because i have no idea how people that dont know me, can get so upset over me saying i dont want to shake hands. but anyways, i was watching the justin wong interview with dogface, and they talked about when kuroda just walked away when he went to shake his hand. so i was like, i wonder what the general consensus on this is, because i see so many half ass hand shakes on streams, and at last years evo. i was like, do people even like doing that, or are they just doing it to do it, because they are following what other people are doing, rather then just doing what they WANT to do. we see a lot more following in the fighting game community then anything else, because its easier to follow and not deal with the hassle of shit like what was posted in this thread, then to say how you feel, or do how you feel.

    people are in la la land if they think every competitive scene doesnt have its different type of players. you think everyone in the nba, nfl, mlb, wants to always be so courteous? of course not, and it fucking shows from time to time. im sure if teams had options to sometimes just walk the fuck off after a game, they would do it sometimes, but there is a whole other beast behind the scenes that dictates that from happening. a beast that is not within the competitive gaming scene, which is nice, because it allows us to express ourselves freely however we like. if we wanna blab a little while beating someone down, there is no one to pull a red flag, you just have to suck it up, and keep focused. anyone here raging ever wonder why no tournament bans shit like shit talking, and general hype, because that is the scene, its gonna happen. that is the beauty and freedom of it. if i want to get up after a match, unplug, and walk away, i can do that, and i dont need to worry about being dq'd for bad behavior, or penalized in any way.

    threads will always take odd turns when a couple negative people want to come in and rage ultra hard over nothing, and declare their word the ultimate word, which is not something i did at all. all i did was pose a question because i was curious. some threads on srk are made to inform, others are straight up useless, and some are just purely out of curiosity. mine was out of curiosity. i was wondering how people would feel for someone to get up and bounce on them, or shake their hand, and which did people like or dislike. if anything it gave someone some good info who hasnt been around the community long. they can see this thread, and be like, i was wondering that too, and the poll shows that so far people like to shake before or after.

    the fact that you say something like my thread seems to be begging for attention, and pisses you off, is completely fucking retarded. im sorry. something obviously is wrong with you, if you cant be like, nah, i disagree with him, ill vote to shake before or after, and just move on. what is wrong with you personally inside that makes you read probably only some of what i posted, and be like, who the fuck does this guy think he is asking questions like this on my forum. no, seriously though.

    im not proving anything to anybody. i mean, do i need to make cliff notes for people of what i posted. i didnt come in here saying, i dont like to shake hands, and you shouldnt either, its fucking dumb. i came in and said how i feel about hand shaking, made a poll out of curiosity, and that was that. it was others who had to pull out their usual wannabe srk thug shit, and start calling me names, and talking bout they gonna spit on me and crazy talk that will never ever happen in real life. never. thats why i didnt post much about some of the rage directed towards me. it was more entertaining to see people be total hypocrites.

    its understandable, people cannot agree to disagree, especially on srk, but i didnt make it to get any attention. attention from who? a bunch of randoms i dont know. do you think im behind my computer screen jerking off to replies, and feeling important? but it doesnt matter, ignorance is bliss on srk, we know that. its easier to assume shit about someone, and lash out in typical "cool" internet fashion, then to just, i dont know, chill the fuck out, and act normal. lol

    take time to reread the thread. i didnt attack anyone of gate. hell, let me reread it, because even the people i replied too, i didnt go off with blind red rage like they did on me.

    the end game of the thread was to see what the general consensus was on handshaking, from the replies to the poll. at least for anyone that read, they will know i dont want to shake their hand at said tourney, so when my name is called, plug in your controller, and lets get it on. no one here is gonna act all crazy like their posting when it comes to someone like me who doesnt want to shake their hand before or after, so i dont know why they getting so hype. its not like i said i hate everyone who shakes hands, and im gonna talk shit and disrespect you during our match. i just wanna plug and play, then move on. people should actually read what i posted. more insecure people here then anything else.
    LEMME GET DAT!

    Personally I'd never refuse a handshake if it was offered. Why be a prick? It's not that serious, even if I was the winner I'd probably offer my hand or a mere ggs comment.

    This thread is the fucking dumbest thing I've ever seen come from SRK.

    It starts as a bitchfest and it ends up a bitchfest.

    Goddamn, this is worse than anything 4chan's /v/ could spout out.

    talking about sports you can relate this too professional football. The players shake hands after a game no matter what game it is.

    It shows good sportsmanship and good respect to the other player.
