What’s up everyone? I just wanted to know what was the best fighting this year for you, as the year is ending, and I know there’s still much to come out and to be expected as far as Street Fighter X Tekken Soul Calibur, Skull Girls and Persona 4. But that’s next year. I was curious to know because there was a handful of fighting games that came out, but yet few came to me as overrated and not worth playing anymore because to me it’s either not tournament savvy or it’s not challenging, which is why I believe SF IV is still this years best fighting game, and will continue to dominate in the next couple of years I almost said Tekken 6 which to me is still a great game, I’ll tell you why. If you look at Street Fighter IV the challenge is there, no rushing, no looking over your back for extra characters to come out to bombard you you have a good window timing for cancels and good transitions for other moves with a less chance of dropping combos, and you don’t have to worry about training 3 to 10 characters get the right set of squad, no combo shortcuts just good old fashion lp,mp,hp etc. Also you do have to think about match-ups and strategy for other characters. And yeah you can say there’s a tier problem and I agree but the changes will be made for SF IV in v12, and lastly what’s a tournament without SF IV? I’ve touched on Marvel and a game I think just rope a doped America. The mechanics in the game is way too easy not challenging at all, with too many midget characters and unappealing characters and high hit damages, I mean lets be honest Dante and Deadpool made that game, also people still would agree that MVC 2 is still better regardless of UMVC3. I’m sorry I just can’t see that game still being a hit in years to come.
Blaze Blue CS, I was a fan of Blaze Calamity Trigger until this came out but Blaze has became a game where the impossible is possible there’s absolutely no restrictions in what you can do and true it’s a sprite game, but really…one mistake and you pay for it, barrier bursts where you can combo into and make a comeback with two forty hit combos, I just think this was the most broken game to date, but with the most interesting story-lines starring Sol Bad Guy I mean Ragna the Bloodedge. Mortal K made a comeback (a tremendous comeback!) but only the story-line kept me playing and for some reason I still prefer Mortal K Trilogy. And last KOF XIII quite frankly I already traded that game. My biggest problem with that game is the window for cancels is just way too short and I like a challenge but this was over the top some of the missions is ridiculous that kept me up for hours figuring what to do in so little time which tells me there a high risk of dropping combos during the game. Believe me you can keep combos simple but the meat and potatoes of the game is cancelling and trying to cancel moves online is a pain due to lagging input delays. This is my reason on why I think SF IV is the best fighting game to me as of this year. What’s yours and why? Thanks for replies.
