Is there a point where one needs to consider giving up on a specific fighting game (SF4 in this case)? I only ask this because I have found myself absorbing a wealth of knowledge, including shows like First Attack and the SRK forums and related sites, but I am finding myself unable to preform actions in-game (and basic combos period) in any fashion (I’ve been trying to play Juri if it helps at all), cannot seem to reach above 300 PP in SF4 nor can I manage to learn anything from the countless matches I have gone through online. The issue becomes exacerbated due to the lack of any community in my area and knowing only two other people who play fighters (with perhaps only one who wants to try and improve their game)
I wouldn't usually think this (and if I put it in the wrong forum please move it) but without any concept that seems to ever stick, or seemingly gets unlearned, it is becoming an issue that feels out of control. I really do not want to drop the game, or genre for that matter, but when it seems like I cannot get better I am unsure if continuing will become a waste of time and resources that could be better spent elsewhere.
Has anyone else run into this and if so what (if anything) should I try and do?
tl;dr Can’t improve and all the resources, articles, and videos don’t help at all. Should I just try some other game?
