GameZone takes a look at why fighting games in 3D don't end up meeting people's expectations. Street Fighter IV’s success isn’t just a wake-up call; it’s a warning to every fighting game developer.
i prefer 2d
When fighting games went 3D, it was one of the reasons I stopped gaming for long time. My favorite franchise did this *cough* MK *cough*...
There's always Blaz Blu :)
Hey hey, the new MK looks fucking sick. Its like they took the 2D game, made it 3D and added more blood and gore. Honestly going to be the first time I'm looking forward to a MK game in a while.
Well, I think I prefer 3D. I bought Super Street Fighter 4 a month ago and its frustrating as hell. Idk if thats because its 2D or just because its Street Fighter. Like, u literally have to spend hours upon hours practicing just to get good. Sorry, but that type of dedication and frustration isn't for me. I've never had a game other than Street Fighter that made me wanna go outside and get some tail lol. @Wraith- Well, regarding ur first comment, I actually found MK vs. DC to be the most entertaining fighting game I've played this generation. Its very accessible and challenging at the same time. And the learning curve isn't steep like Street Fighter. I guess ur right...its a matter of taste.
Yeah, I guess its taste or what you've grown up playing. I'm an old school gamer, so you'd have to understand practically all games were 2D...minus Zelda, which I don't know what to call that type of game's dimensions.
and i prefer the new SF's to be honest. I do hate capcom though for there prices on DLC. Really 4 costumes cost 3.99 how can you even justify that cost. I admit though between sf4 and ssf4 i have over 300hrs of time played online so i love them to say the least easily over 1000 games played fyi didnt read the article but by seeing lower comments is this a real 3d thing or just a 3d charcter models?
I prefer 2D as well. The action seems more concentrated, faster, and the controls more precise. I remember avoiding jumping attacks in 3D, and shuffling to get in closer.
MK on 3D plane was terrible. Tekken on 3D plane is awesome! Budokai 3 is on a "2D" plane and it was damn good. Blaz Blu >>>>> Street Fighter I actually liked DBZ3 on my Famicom (aka SNES). Here: http://www.youtube.com/watc... ^this is slow. There's a way to make it really fast and damn, these guys suck!
Fighting games usually take a lot of concentration. So if you are seeing stuff come out at you, you will lose focus, and lose the match. Therefore, taking the fun out of games.
I like 2d better for the simple reason I don't want to have to wear glasses of any other type of head gear when playing a game
out of subject
actually he isnt. just misinterpreted. in fact his definition of 3D is accurate. WE'RE the ones who are using it incorrectly
Interesting take - I guess I prefer 2D as well, but I also like 3D fighting games. GZ - #Tropico3
2D Fighting just avoids all the pitfalls of the camera in 3D Fighting games. In for Tropico 3! Twitter: MRxDURDEN
Street Fighter gets it right, so the move back to 2D is probably for the best right now while the devs figure out what to do with 3D.
Soul Caliber mastered 3D fighting. i see not one problem wit that franchise in terms of functionality
3D fighting games make local multiplayer impossible (or at least very difficult with a split screen). 2D is the best for playing with your friends.
2D for me. I find the pace much faster with 2d fighting games.
I can count more 2D fighters I like in comparison to 3D fighters, so I agree.
Must agree. 2D fighting games are better.
jus dont wanna have to wear any glasses for it. if they can somehow use 3ds technology so we didnt have to, it could be cool.
What? Thats funny...even if you're not serious.
another misinterpretation lol
2D keeps it nice and simple. My fav fighting games have all been in 2D. SSFT2, MK3, MVC2 and CVS2.
I like both, but you have to view them as different kinds of games, not to be compared to each other. Since there are both types to buy, it is a non-issue imo.
The best fighting Game is Super smash bros. BRAWL
I prefer Melee over Brawl. Why do you like Brawl so much?
the graphics are better the gameplay is better more items more everything internet gaming adventure mode (a lot of modes) why do you think melee is better??:O....(the charging combo and the air dodge what a bug :A)
Fighting games are all about speed, smoothness of response, and twitch reactions. Putting them in current 3D technology interferes with much of that. Maybe someday when it improves.
Perhaps the problem with 3D fighting games is that they just try to change things a little from 2D fighting games. To be successful, they may need to have very different mechanics. They might also need new advances in 3D gaming hardware. GZ
2D is the way to go
BlazBlue...that is all.
