Before you tell me its my own choice, just read a bit more, just trying to see how logical a choice it is for my situation.
I just took up the hobby of playing fighters competetivly about…3 days ago, after a while of debating and was immediately attracted to 3S. Im currently in a bind of deciding on a character; Makoto or Ken.
Ken has always been a favorite character of mine, and the fact that hes in the top tier makes him a good choice for the long run. But from the videos Ive seen and playing him myself (btw, I have no skill at all, if you didnt already pick that up :P) he seems sort of boring ot me.
I find Makoto alot more fun to play, even easier in some aspects. Also the fact that the Makoto forum has that great guide which makes starting for me alot easier and less tedious then finding the chunks of Ken for complete scrubs info scattered all over the place. But, from what I’ve read from Makoto, and non-Makoto players is that shes really not a solid character; it also seems pretty hard to find match videos of her now, although that may just be me.
Im still learning right now, and only do casual play with my friends who are pretty much completely absorbed into the whole fighters scene in my region (reason why I started playing) I want to get into tournament play some day and want to be 100% with the character I chose, but I dont want to be gimmped from the start.
So who should I chose? Maybe even suggestions on a different character?
