A Love/Hate Relationship With The Fighter Genre

Sean Halliday of Pixel Gate writes:

''The fighting game genre has always been a harsh mistress for me. For every happy memory I have of the genre there’s about 3 bad memories that shortly follow.

From a young age I became interested in fighters and my first experience with the genre was (unsurprisingly) Capcom’s Street Fighter 2 on the Super Nintendo. From the first minute of the game I was hooked. The characters looked visually interesting, the environments dazzling and the action thrilling. Playing solo was fun but lets face it, fighters are meant to be played against people and not AI.'' (Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, PS3, Retro, Soul Calibur II, Street Fighter 2, Xbox 360)
