Today, someone asked me where I would go with SF3. As if there needed to be some profitable outcome for him to even consider taking the time to learn it.
The raw passion that players once developed for a fighting game is gone, they are now inspired by money, sponsors and the “fame” within the community.
This might sound corny but I’m sure some of you will understand that for someone new to take this game seriously these days, they really just have to see that “magic”. I’ve always been intrigued by fighting games but something was always missing. The second I seen this game I knew I wanted to learn, I seen the magic.
The amazing sound track, the announcer, the parries, fluid animations, even little nuances like the blocking sound.
Such an amazing game, but unfortunately it has allot going against it. Big learning curve, small scene, small tournaments, 3soe sucks, and we have Louiscipher.
The 5 years I’ve been playing SF3, I’ve never been motivated to become a strong player so I could do well in a tournament. I wanted to become better so I could be better, simple as that.
With the motive of improving for self improvement, I cant see my self quitting this game as long as I have one person to fight against.
This game is fucking awesome, and I hope if you’re new to the game, your judgement isn’t clouded by the popularity of other titles. If you like this game, play it, learn it.
Because the new games fucking suck.
What inspires you to keep playing 3s when there are obviously other options?
