Before someone says it, yes I know ggpo, played it since alpha ver. and its the best thing by far in terms of input response for a fighting game because it really does eliminate the feel of delayed inputs.
i know nobody will know the true answer to the thread title unless you have a crystal ball but I’m sure a lot of us can’t help wonder if it will become a reality some day.
I’m not gonna lie, afaik all the commercial fighting games on current-gen with online play, be it 2D or 3D have more or less noticable input lag thats enough to distract me (and probably others here) to play even semi-competitively. They don’t come even close to an alternate option for ggpo, much less offline play.
It saddens me as a fighting game player to see other genres such as FPS and RTS can strive online while fighting games, due to the nature of thier gameplay relying on basically no-delay input, to be unable to be enjoyable online.
I want ggpo (or ggpo level) online play!!! /rant
Right now my next hope is this. i hope this isn’t a hoax or anything.
