I’ve been playing FGs since Yie ar Kung Fu, and after 27 years, I’ve decided that I am never going to be any good at them. I’m okay with it, and I still consider myself an enthusiast, but I’m never going to be anything more than a half-step above a button masher.
I’ve played damn near every fighter ever, from 2Ds like SF, GG, and MvC, to 3Ds like SC, Tekken and VF, to obscure stuff like Arcana Heart and Toshinden, to every MK game, to terrible games like Star Wars: Masters of Teras Kasi and ClayFighter, and I’m always terrible. I put a lot of practice into SSFIV (A LOT) over a period of about four months, and eventually felt comfortable going against a serious player I know: He beat me like I was a four year old.
I don’t know if it’s an issue with my reflexes, my hand-eye coordination, or what, but I just can’t compete with players who play any more than casually. Rather than deal with the extreme frustration that comes with sucking, I’ve chosen to simply watch, cheer, and stick to single-player Easy modes.
Anyone else feel this way?
