My friend is in to adventure games. He does not get fighting games. Now, that’s not a problem for me, but when he starts to spout sh!t about fighting games having “no depth”, “no skill”, being “boring” and “two dimensional” when he hasn’t even PICKED UP A PAD/STICK and played for himself, then that was too much. He then proceeded to try and have several jabs at Marvel/fighting games in general with ludicrous comments about what actually comes down to personal preferences and his ‘personal’ issues with characters, etc. Makes me mad just thinking about it.
Anyway, rant over. He eventually said that I could/should send him a few matches to show him what it’s all about. Now, I’m pretty certain that this is not going to ‘convert’ him and make him see the light - whatever, I don’t care. You have to make some effort and make a personal choice to get into fighting games/discover it for yourself. But I still want to show him some of the best fighting games has to offer. So I’m thinking a couple of matches from SSF4 and Marvel, tournament matches with commentary (as he obviously has NO idea about what’s going on) and lashings of hype :D. Oh and I suppose they can’t be too long as I doubt he will have the attention span. So, what great matches can you guys suggest I link him?
