The experimental simplified mechanics, layers of meters, cut corners, and kawaii scourge have made new instalments in fighting game franchises that I still play to this day unpalatable and that makes me sad. I used to look forward to a new fighting game announcement, but now I just wonder when and how they will disappoint me. Only game that has not disappointed me this generation was Injustice 2 and that is because it features a relatively new gameplay design, is well produced, and has no competition. While it has room for improvement (like removing clashes), it remains the best I can find, so I stick with it.
P.S. I still look at EventHubs because I have hope that one day another great fighting game will be announced that can compete with the classics and they are relatively quick with fighting game reveal information.
