I was talking to some of my friends today, none of who play street fighter, tekken, marvel vs capcom or the like, and we got into an argument about if video games take skill or not. I defended street fighter, saying that fighting and RTS games take the most skill. But when they retorted saying you can button mash your way through it, that things like call of duty take more skill, I was sort of at a loss for words as to how to come back at that.
I just feel like its impossible to describe to someone who doesnt play what its like and how difficult yet skillful it is. What are your thoughts? Does Street Fighter take skill? How would you respond to this?
