I was wondering what everyone’s opinion would be about fighting games not being for everyone. I’ll fill you in on my situation and why I have been thinking of this question. I bought Super Street Fighter 4 the day it hit the shelves, I had a few friends online who would talk about the game and how much fun fighting games are. So as I’ve said I picked up SSF4 along with a SE edition madcatz fightstick (later modded with Sanwa parts) and went off on the path trying to learn the game and all that it holds. Fast forward to today and I’m starting to think fighting games aren’t for me. I seem to have not improved at all outside of basic execution, I get kicked from lobbies due to being an easy win and I cant seem to find people in the same “skill” gap as myself.
I don’t know why but I just seem to never be able to improve at all even after reading and watching all that I could about beginners and improving your game. After recently buying AE I seem to be at that point where I really enjoy watching anything and everything about street fighter, from streams to SRK guide but I can’t seem to make the translation to playing the game.
So as I’ve originally stated this isnt necessarily “help me thread” but more of else what people think about fighters being or gamers. At one point in time do you have to realize that they’re not for you? Or that all this time you just arnt doing something right.
Thanks for reading.
