Hello. My favourite pvp game, WoW, has a dying population, the game is over saturated with skills, and the skill cap has dropped significantly over the last few expansions, so I’m looking for another competitive game to play. I spent some time playing League, but the 30-40 minute matches are simply too long for me to enjoy. Now I’m looking into the fighting game genre to give me that competitive fix.
The fighting games that I’ve put a decent amount of time into are SSB and DBZ budokai 3. I played one of the soul caliber games, but I never played online, either due to the community being dead or not having internet access at the time (not sure which). I vaguely remember playing the bald black guy with a scythe.
Anyway, I’m looking for a popular fighter on the ps3. I’m not a big fan of fighting games where people just jump around everywhere; they look very unappealing and frustrating to play and don’t resemble fighting. I’m not too concerned with balance or game depth: I just want something fun that has short queue times so I can endlessly chain matches, win or loss. If there’s a ladder/elo/mmr system in place, excellent. I love ladders.
