When I was younger, fighting games were THE games to play.
Street Fighter, Samurai Shodown, Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct were the big ones back in the day. King of Fighters and the VS series brought an all new spectrum to the fighting era and with Tekken, Virtua Fighter and Soul Blade on the 3D side, it seemed as if any type of fighting game I wanted to play was available.
And it’s always fun to beat arrogant players who give any and every excuse as to why they lose a game.
However, nowadays it doesn’t seem to be that interesting again.
For quite some time, games that should hold my interest such as Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, Soul Calibur 3, Tekken 5 and Guilty Gear X2 just aren’t that exciting again. They’re fun to play for awhile but then I just lose interest in both fighting the computer and other players.
In fact, the only games that I looked forward to are Sugoi! Arcana Heart 2 and King of Fighters 2002:Unlimited Match.
Is that I’m just growing out of them since I’m older? Or gaming as a whole just isn’t as interesting?
Anyone else thinks that your gaming isn’t what it once was?
