Here Comes A New Challeneger: A Gamers Return To the Fighting Genre

Back long ago, in a time far far away, I used to be engulfed by fighting games, they were the quintessential form of multiplayer but instead of linking up online you either found yourself in an arcade (yes arcades) or in the TV room of you or your friends house. It was the purest form of "Who's better than whom," as you either beat or got beat by your friends or randoms that threw quarters down ( Yes you actually put money into machines at one point to play video games). And back in the 90's there were more fighting game titles than you probably think. (Culture, King of Fighters XIII, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3)

That is because they all had a certain character or charm to them that most are missing now.

While some game genres have suffered fading out over the years, fighting is one genre of games that has grown exponentially in spite of the death of arcades in the us and europe. Its only gonna get bigger from here, so welcome back.

Thanks! So far im having a blast, even though I'm getting spanked by most people. Im just trying to learn 1 character and get comfy with the controls. It'll be another struggle once I get a Fight stick haha so we'll see how that goes
