I’m pretty new to the SF series; the only one I’ve played seriously is SSFIV(and AE). Previous to that the only series I really did was Tekken (T3+). Trying SSFIV is what got me to attempt BB, which sold me on MvC3; I’ve realized I love the 2D fighters as much as I love Tekken (which is, oddly, the only 3D fighter I have ever really liked).
The biggest thing I notice in the games I prefer is how easy they make linking moves. I got somewhat good at links in SSFIV for a while, but then I didn’t play it much for a couple of months and when I came back all that practice had gone to waste. 1-frame links are just a little too demanding for me to want to invest the time, but I’ve found I really enjoy the characters in SF so I’d like to pick up a game that isn’t quite so difficult in that regard.
Do the SF games generally have this high of a execution level? Any recommendations for someone like me or should I just stick to other series?
