Just thought this would be a fun idea to toss out. What’s a fighting game that you once greatly enjoyed, but now can’t stand to play now?
I don’t have a long history of fighting games, but the oldest would probably be SC 2 which I loved and still enjoy. Even SC 5 was fun to play around in for a couple days (rented it). I was actually brought back in with SSF4. But after playing MvC, MK, BlazBlue and SF x T, I can’t seem to get back into SF. It seems… stiff, and kinda boring to play. I get that it’s a more methodical fighter, with more emphasis on zoning and space control. And I did that really well with Guile and Sagat. But I was bored out of my mind having shootouts with other players. And I couldn’t play rushdown, I was just never good at it.
But I feel like UMvC and SF x T, there’s a bit more speed and more flashiness to the game. It feels more fun to just play, or even watch. I get that SF is more like a chess match, with well-thoughtout moves and planning, but UMvC or BlazBlue feels like watching a stream of some guys playing Crossfire (the boardgame). And SF x T is just fun for the novelty of any crossover game; It’s fun to watch these two franchises duke it out.
That’s just me, but I don’t feel like I could go back to SF after spending time with some faster, more active fighters. How about you, SRK?
