Fighting Games for Dummies

"With the release of Soul Calibur IV, recently I've noticed a lot of people saying "I want to get into them, but I just don't get fighting games." As always I'm here for you; so feast your eyes on my beginner's guide to various fighting games. I didn't include Guilty Gears and King of Fighters because no one gives a fuck. Enjoy!"

Darth Vader and Yoda are equal. Not sure which is better; all I know is I want Yoda on PS3 DLC.

Dude, Yoda on SCIV sucks. He's extremely cheap. Most attacks won't hit him due to his size. You have to aim low.
He can't be grabbed either. Not even Yoda can grab Yoda.

Out of the three(Yoda, Vader, Apprentice) the most balanced character is Vader.

Virtua Fighter is better than Tekken. I don't care what you say.

It actually depends on what's your taste because Virtua Fighter is more realistic than Tekken. Virtual Fighter tries to stay grounded in reality while Tekken has an anime exaggeration to it. I agree with you that Virtual Fighter is better because I love simulators over arcade games. Simulators usually have more complex elements but since we’re talking about fighting games it’s kind of hard to tell.

Street Fighter is a good example it has the anime exaggeration feel to it yet there is still a lot to be learned. If UFC 2009: Undisputed is done right I would say that game will be on my top fighting games than boxing.

Virtual Fighter still can't catch up with the world's best 3D fighter.

Time_Is_On_My_Side4322d ago

I haven't played the recent Virtual Fighter or Tekken so you might be right I don't know.

I really prefer Soul Calibur, but I have to say, EVERY fighting game has the one huge flaw.... You can keep attacking faster than they can get back up, which opens the whole "you play like a dirty whore" argument and ruins friendships

It's his opinion mate. Just because he doesn't like a certain thing doesn't mean he doesn't know anything about it.

Not a bad article, fighters are getting a lot more technical these days and with tastes so diverse it's difficult to speak to all types of fans.
