Fighting Fundamentals with JD

PixlBit | "Fighting games can be some of the most intimidating games out there. Whether it was back in the arcades where every victory relied on you hard earned money, or today where playing online unprepared can lead to some embarrassing losses. Though a tough nut to crack, fighting games can also be extremely rewarding." (Arcade, Culture, Injustice: Gods Among Us, PS3, PS4, Street Fighter IV, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

That was dreadful - there's not practical advice in that article. Watch videos, get better at the game, practice a bit... *pffff* those aren't fighting game fundamentals, it's just common sense.

Getting better at fighting games comes down to three main things. Learning simple BnB's to start off with - practicing them until they're used in practical situations, then try to expand them in training mode, with a little help from YouTube.

Practice, practice, practice to get that muscle memory down. And watch mathces with top players for insight into practical tactics and strategies - learn from there, but don't copy.

Lastly, GET OUT OF THE HOUSE and go to actual fighting game meets and FGC events and get used to competitive play, learn from those who are beating you, and talk to the people attending to get help.

None of this was covered. In fact, I think I just wrote a more informative article in, what, 45 seconds?

Agreed. I would add that it's not too difficult to pick your favorite character, learn all the simple commands and combos on the move list and learn a couple of frame advantage moves as well as damaging combos. Take all this and keep fighting online or with friends even.

I"ve never been to a tournament, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying fighting games.
