I see notoriously great players like Justin Wong, Daigo, and a plethora of other players and I began to notice something.
They are all very good at the games they play. This could easily mean that being good at one fighting game is almost to being good at another.
Take for example, Chris G. a notoriously good MvC3 player also did very well in MK9 this EVO2011. There are many other examples of this as well, Tokido being a person who never ceases to make top 8 in multiple games.
My question is this: Is this always true? To be a better player in MvC3, would it help to be a better SSF4 player? To be a better SSF4 player would it help to be a better SF3 player? Will MvC2 and TvC help one play Blazblue?
Because in my case, I realize I’m pretty terrible at SSF4, SF3 (granted I wasn’t there during its hey-day), MvC2, and a myriad of other fighting games.
The only game where I can say I’m decent at is TvC (giants lol) and MvC3, but I feel I’m hitting at some limit point and I’m still being trumped by players who seem to be at a skill-tier that’s higher than mine, yet I do not know how to break it, and I’m beginning to think that to break it, is to expand my skillset in other games.
What do you guys think?
