Not so much pertaining to beginner skill questions, but I thought it went best here because it deals with getting others to a basic proficiency to have fun as soon as possible.
What I am asking for in this topic is, once I get a few friends to acquiesce to a fighter, in this case SFxT because I’m doing this tonight, what do you think is the best pace at which to teach them the mechanics of the game so they can have fun but not be overwhelmed?
I have a tendency to give too much information at once, so I’m considering just going “here are the buttons, here is how you switch, these are the win conditions,” and have them go crazy for a few rounds; not even tell them about special moves or anything. I feel this puts the least pressure on them in the beginning but unless I can find a way to sneak in specials, supers, and launchers (all I really care about day 1-2), they will tire quickly and accuse me of being cheap and knowing stuff. I just want to play fighters with people (and the online speed here stinks), and I especially think we could have fun with the co-op feature.
P.S: What is a list of characters that work best for beginners? I’m thinking:
Or is it just best to let them pick whoever they find coolest first?
