I’ve owned a few fighting games, but I never really got into them until I recently bought Skullgirls. I find I much prefer the 2-D hand-drawn animation to the 3-D models of games like MK9, and I find hits much more satisfying and fun to watch with the 2-D effects. Also, I love the fluidity hit confirms gave when I was executing combos and using specials, a major gripe I had with MK. I don’t want to limit myself to just Skullgirls, but I feel I should get some other opinions before I end up buying something that suck/has no community.
To give you an idea of what I know, I have heard of but never played BlazBlue, Guilty Gear, and Persona 4 Arena.
So, what good, hand-drawn 2-D games would you recommend, and why?
