Opinion on infinites?


#1

If there’s another thread about this, just send me the link. If that’s the case sorry about making another topic.

Personally, I think infinites take the skill out of a game. What’s the point if it winds up just being who can get their infinites off first? Now yeah, I may be new to the whole fighting game thing; loops don’t bother me as long as they’re escapable and all that. Genuine infinite combos bother me, however.

Sounds like a GG player?

Anyway, most games where infinites are allowed, the infinites hardly take the skill out of the game. In some regards, they’re the biggest skill requirement of the game.

There are however, some busted ass games where you can infinite off of the easiest setup, and execute it with extreme ease. Those, are usually banned, or in games that arn’t commonly played or played at tourney level.

And I’m pretty sure there’s a few threads where this has come up in discussion, I just didn’t look first =Q

I don’t think they necessarily take the skill out of the game. In MvC2 for instance there are tons of infinites but it’s not like you don’t have to practice a lot to be able to do them consistently. If per se the infinite was easily done by people of all skill levels, then I would say it ruins the game.
