It was hard to pin a title on what I mean with this topic.
What I’m getting at is that throughout stages of my life since I was young the only fighting game I’ve ever put good time into and learned is Street Fighter (mostly II and IV).
I picked up Virtua Fighter 5 for 360 recently (it was real cheap, and I admire a lot of Yu Suzuki’s other games) and just got round to playing it earlier today, I went in the dojo with a character to learn some moves and how the commands worked and such, but whilst doing this I was thinking about how it seems like a LOT to take in, and had me having some concern over the fact I don’t want to get distracted from SSFIV or potentially forget things I’ve learnt about that game.
I thought this mainly due to how the game play is much different, and VF seems like it’s own original entity in terms of play, where as the Street Fighter series, and a number of SNK fighters all share similarities, so the learning curve doesn’t seem as steep for them.
Am I over thinking this whole thing?
or is it common for people to not want to learn alien (to them) fighting games and just focus on the games they’ve put the most time in and having the most fun with?
