Do you care about the story in fighting games?


As Steven reported yesterday, Yoshinori Ono and the team at Capcom are taking the story mode of Street Fighter V seriously. Sure, they'll have the usual arcade mode intro/wrap-up for every character like Street Fighter has had since time immemorial, but come June, Capcom plans to release a more ambitious, “more modern cinematic treatment” of a story mode. They want to provide some context for all the hadokens and psycho crushers this time around and finally connect the dots between SFII and SFIII (yes, that's right, SFV is technically a second prequel to SFIII).

Nope. I care about the mechanics of that fighting game. I love blaz blue and guilty gear but I have no idea what is going on in that world. I dont care either. I just care for how well the fighting mechanics work.

I would care if it is a game like dark souls/bloodborne but not mk or street fighter

I guess my opinion would be 'sort of, but not really'

I care more about the mechanics of the game over the story, but having a story that I think is interesting helps me with fleshing out that universe and the personalities of the characters. I find that cool. Again though, mechanics in a fighting game are the most important and as long as they are solid and I find characters that suit me I'm good with a story that makes zero sense or without one at all.

BlazBlue made me care, probably the only fighting game that made me care about the story.

I just came in here to post that, BB has an amazing story.
