i really hate fighting games >.<... they never make them easy to learn, how in hell am i supposed to know which button is heavy punch or Light Punch, or Kick or whatever, when i am trying to learn in the training room when they don't tell me what button is what unless i go through 10 different menus to see the control configuration. i find it all really unintuitive, especially for beginners. i am not looking to play competitively, since i suck at any multiplayer game no matter how many hours i log in, 1000+ hours of CoD BO2 and my win to loss ratio is 0 wins 1000+ losses. in Mario Kart 7 i averagely earn 5th place, i have never made it into the top 3 in any race unless there was only 3 people. i gave up on Multiplayer and playing competitively, but i would like to at least beat the COM on normal.

CoD isn't a 'fighting' game, it's a shooter. Mario Kart is also not a 'fighting' game, it's a racing game.

Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Tekken....ect. Those are fighters.

Now, what is your point? Are you looking for fighters to play to get better at them?

Post title should be more about how much you hate MP/Competitive games than just Fighting genre.

i was explaining how i am not interested in playing competitively.... and yes i am, and i am kinda venting, because i just spent the last 3 hours playing a fighting game with a really unintuitive tutorial trying to do 1 move.

the point was that i am not interested in competitive play, i just want to be good enough at fighting games to beat the computer on normal, without button spamming.

Guess that's fighting games for you. Learning curve only as steep as it comes natural to you. At least you will always have a challenge

I'd like to recommend the SoulCalibur series if you're looking for a slightly simpler fighting game. If you have a PS3 there's also the recently released SoulCalibur Lost Swords. It's F2P and from the short time I've played it, there isn't any competitive play, just battle computer opponents, get some loot, improve your weapons and armor, and do it all over again until you're a badass.

If you going to play Tekken, Law is the best character to use. Just push two buttons at the same time and you get some good moves out of him. Or just button mash the hell of it.

The people that play them is mostly my problem. With a game like Tekken or UFC, the limb to button layout makes for easy to understand but difficult to master controls. I hate spammers and in tekken, infinite ukemi combos that drain 1/2+ a life bar.

I don't play fighters the most but I do still get enough good matches to keep them in the mix. I used to play a lot of Soul Calibur 4, but now it's Tekken Tag 2 at #1 on my fighters list. Street Fighter sucks although I want to like it, MvC is ok, and so is UFC3.

The new super smash on wii u looks like it'll be a blast.

If I were you, then I would take some time memorizing the controls and movesets by repeating them for a few times (repetition implies importance). Recognizing their animations would help as well, for they tell you which buttons are pressed to execute certain animations. If you worry about characters, then try to stay with ones who may fit your style, whether in gameplay or design. However, do not always perform same moves/combos, especially ones with slow startup/recovery rate which will render you vulnerable to any incoming attack, over and over (x insert number) again, or else your opponent will recognize your pattern and you'll get hand your ass! With that said, try to practice some basic combos first, and then try to learn new ones that deal even more damage. Make sure you watch the startup/recovery time (and hit boxes)!

The thing about fighting games is that there are real execution and mindset barriers to entry, and you can really see this in the "competitive" and "balanced" fighting games such as Street Fighter, Guilty Gear and Blazblue. So much that all other games except "Street Fighter" have an "Easy" or "Casual" Mode to appeal to people who can't invest the time and muscle required to play the game.

Even if you play casually, the fact is that fighting games require a specific mindset and style in order to win. For now, ignore any jargon that fighting game players will throw at you, and instead try to get into the mindset of how to win and get better at fighting games. Here's a little primer for you:

http://www.sirlin.net/ptw/

Do read the Playing to Win series, because it helps you get into the fighting game mindset. Once you do, Shoryuken.com's forums are more than willing to lend you a hand in getting better at fighting games.

Just know that there's no disgrace in finding out or saying that the mindset and the play style isn't for you.

Injustice is the most easiest fighting game. Combos are easy to remember and easy inputs.

My friend, you need to play KILLER INSTINCT.



If you go to DOJO, it will teach you the basics and you will have a blast!

Play Mortal Kombat, use Scorpion, PROFIT

Or play Persona 4 Arena. Tapping Square pretty much guarantees you a combo in that game
