Don’t flame me, I just want to know why 3s is so good? I don’t play 3s, having only casually played the game twice, so I don’t know what makes it so good compared to other fighters, like alpha 3 and mvc2, my favorites. Also, is 3s really that deep? I keep hearing about how deep 3s is, is it due to the the parry system, or is there a bunch of other stuff I am missing? Also, one thing that makes me hesitant to play 3s is a what I perceive as a lack of available combo options. I like that in in a game like a3 with vc’s there is almost a limitless number of combos that can be made. Also, mcv2 has tons of combos waiting to be discovered. It seems to me that 3s lacks in “combo creation,” please correct me if I am wrong though, I may be missing something obvious that allows combo flexibility (EX moves, supercancels, do they do much?)
Basically why should I play this game when I would be happy playing a3 and mvc2 for the years to come?
edit: Thanks for the all the good responses, very helpful hearing what the 3s fans have to say. As to the combo thing, it sucks having huge combos and all that make things broken, but on the flipside when things are more simple, there is less to discover with your favorite character (like new vc’s,etc.). As far as practice mode goes, it’s much more fun working on new stuff than grinding out your exection on combo’s you already know. As to what’s better for competitive play, I’m on the fence, each has it’s benefits.
