I’m currently “recruiting” some friends into the vibrant world of fighting games (of which I am quite new myself), and I’m wondering about what game would be best to pick up if you’re a new player.
I want to teach them (while I’m teaching myself) proper space controlling, pressure and all that, but some games are just too… explosive? Where the basics are no longer in the spotlight.
We do not have the luxury of actually meeting, since they’ve moved out of town - so we’re stuck with GGPO (not like there’s anything wrong with it!) and whatever doujin games are lying around.
We’ve been testing a lot of different fighting games recently but have yet to decide on one - hence why I’m asking about your opinion.
For someone who wants to develop a solid understanding of the basic gameplay that is consistent throughout all fighting games, which one would you pick?
