well, this is my first time making a thread so uh, pray for me.
Now, I’ve really gotten into fighting games this year and the gateway drug for me was SkullGirls, a game that you all obviously know was made by mike z. I dug up some info on the game and learned that mike z has played in tournaments and stuff. I thought it was interesting on how mike z really wanted to make a game that not only payed homage to MVC2, but gave each character tools to go against others.The introduction of the anti-infinite system was what really hooked me in. For people like me, who hated getting caught in a infinite, this feature convinced me to go get the game.
there was also this other game I heard of called Weaponlord, which pretty much introduced features used in fighters today like “thrust blocks” and clashes. I also recently learned that this was one of the first fighting games to be played online, which really got me interested on how this was done. The game was made by James Goddard, who played in tournaments and created the character Dee Jay from Street Fighter.
Those 2 games had me thinking if there were any more tournament players who made a fighting game or had a hand in making one.
Does anyone here know any games like that? I wanna get my hands on them and stuff. They don’t even have to be super famous games.
