Fighting Games

With the launch of Street Fighter 4, the fighting game scene was reborn. I found my own love for fighting games with SF4. It showed me that if I put my time and effort into something, I will be rewarded. Generally, people dislike fighting games because they think they're not good at it. If you refuse to learn and get better, then sure you'll always suck at it. Next time you see someone who you think is really good, consider this, they spent their time practicing and grinding to get to where they are at. That is the reason you're losing. So practice and train your heart out and remember to never give up!

  2. I don't understand what happened, but the time Street Fighter was an exciting game to play was before the year of 2000, with consoles.

    I played SF4 and found it very boring.
    Big part of awesomeness of my life I get from a game called Battlefield 2. I have been playing it online since 2005.

    I have spent thousands of hours on it and I still have tons of fun with it, everyday.

    It is hard to believe that some commercial FPS game published by EA Games can be alive for so long. But it is.

    Even today, servers on my country are frequently full. I can imagine that north american servers are in even much greater greater numbers, and of course, even fuller.

    I think Battlefield 2 is the greatest online game ever made. But I have definitely nothing against players that still enjoys games like SF4.

  10. I was never a fan of street fighter games, or fighting games in general really. But I was at PAX East a few weeks ago and I was playing it for the 3DS and man was it GOOD. I think I may have to pick it up it was that good!

  18. SF4 is such a great game. It's a shame MLG only takes up Tekken :(.

    ReplyDelete
  19. SF4 and SSF4 just will never get old. I'm glad they brought back old characters like Ibuki and Guy, but still added somenew ones. SF will always be the best fighter for me.

    I just hope Mortal Kombat makes as big of a comeback.

  32. The reason I refuse to play them is because for me is because every fight is too similar. I lose interest pretty fast.
