NGN: "Selecting a preferred fighting game is a pretty intimate choice, as far as video game purchases go. When you make your pick from the many available titles, you’re signing up for an experience that will have to be studied, rather than intuited. There are exhaustive command lists to be learned and strategies to adopt. There are specific characters to take on as your “mains”, ones who speak to you better than the rest. And while nearly all fighters contain the same tropes (health bars, rounds, etc.), subtle variations on the themes mean that one fighting game might fit you like a glove, while another feels nigh unplayable."
