I just wanted to know people’s feelings on parrying. For example, in SFIII: 3rd Strike, many people loved the parry system, and thought it added strategy to the game, and wasn’t easy to do unless you really practiced. While others didn’t like the parry much, and believed it slowed the game down too much, along with people sometimes just sitting back waiting for the opposition to hit, so they can parry, and unleash a combo.
So what are your feelings on parrying in general? Do some games do it better than others? If so, which ones have the best parry system? Do you really think it slows down matches too much? Or does it ultimately come down to the dev(s) implementing it in a reasonable and fair way, while making sure the gameplay is at a decent pace?
