PluggedIn - Many, many roundhouse kicks ago in the days of button-mashing yore, fighting games were a much simpler lot. You jabbed your thumbs into a controller to throw punches and kicks, and if the game mechanics were slick enough, you could even block when the need arose. It was all a matter of timing and good hand-eye coordination. But those old old-school battlers are laughably simple now. They couldn't even get near the ring with today's games. Nowadays the fighting game is all about complexity and options. And there are none more robust in those areas than the Tekken games.
