    Only if tekken 7, melee and project m are involved

      not fighting games
      and heres why
      Because Smash games are designed and focused on being party games first and foremost. And while they do have layers of systems and mechanics to give it more depth than most party games, it's still a party game at heart.

      The core difference between Smash and fighting games is that Smash has to be made into a fighting game in order to make it work. It has to have items (such a huge part of the game) switched OFF. It has to have stage hazards (such a huge part of the game) switched OFF. Stage selection has to be regulated, win conditions have to be regulated. While other games have their admin done outside of the game for tournaments, Smash requires a lot of the admin to happen in game as well.

      What does this mean? Well compare it to Mario Kart. Mario Kart is a party game. It does have in-depth systems and mechanics, like drift boost and trail boost, kart kits and character stats. Sure, to make it competitive you can switch off a lot of the RNG based mechanics and the zaniness with items off and certain stages made non-regulation; make it more skill based that 'control the chaos' as it originally is. Focus just on the racing. But you've taken away everything from Mario Kart that makes it Mario Kart.

        Same is true with Smash. I love Smash. And I think the ugly truth is so does most of Kappa. Kappa doesn't hate Smash, they hate the Smash community because the Smash community (on top of being one of the most toxic, entitled, obnoxious communities out there) demands that their make-shift Mario Kart should be held at the same level as Nascar. Smash has always been a party game. Sakurai and Nintendo approach it like a party game (first) and at its most unique, when it's most effective, is when it's just crazy. Stages moving and shifting, racing and dog piling for items, laughing and cheering and raging when your luck turns on you or when it turns on someone else. It's a phenomenal game. From stage hazards to items, so much of what makes Smash Smash is the zaniness. When you have to strip almost all of that away in order to make it "skill based", it's like turning off the stages and items in Mario Kart to make it more "skill based"; sure you can do that with literally ANY game...but you lost what that game is, in the process.

        Compare that to games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, Dragon Ball Fighterz and Guilty Gear, UNIST and Tekken. The core systems of these games are for competitive based play. Fighterz Dragon-Ball system, for example, is even a big part of its competitive scene. Sure these games have custom characters and modes and such to tap into more party game styles the way Smash tapes into fighting games, but at their core you don't have to shut off what makes these games what they are just to make them competitive.

          There's a lot more to the argument as well (Smash is much more shallow in terms of fighting game mechanics, for example) but at its heart, I think that's the main point. If Smash can be made into a competitive game by stripping away most of its content and tightly controlling what's left, then so can literally any other game. You could make Katamari into a competitive game, or Minecraft, or Overcooked. And here's the thing: that's fine. That's ok. You can do that and if people do that and enjoy it, more power to them. The problem happens when you demand your make-shift wannabe-fighting-game should be on the same stage and at the same level as games designed to be competitive.

          I don't say it's a party game as a criticism; party games are awesome and Smash is king of them. I think we can all agree, Smash fans or not, that Sakurai is a brilliant man who deserves admiration from all side. But the thing is, the Smash games didn't have to be the black sheep of the FGC. It could have been friendly pet, one that everyone loves and appreciates. The problem with Smash has always been its competitive community. It is one of the most toxic, obnoxious, entitled, bratty group of people I've ever seen; every event there's always a controversy, a story, an embarrassment over how the players act, the audience acted, etc. Which again, is fine...except they want to show up at FGC events and stages and pollute the place while demanding acknowledgement that they neither earn or deserve.

          It's kind of a shame because if it had a better community, I think Smash would be beloved by the FGC all round as a well-made side-show and an event worth watching.

          Well put bro. With my friends growing up we had countless hours in melee. It's one of the best games ever made and I don't give a fuck what anyone thinks. That being said the competitive scene is the single worst scene on earth. It's really sad because it ruined melee for me for a long time.

          kinda like how dark souls fans need to limit themselves (no summons, no powerful items/weapons, no leveling, etc) in order to come close to a semblance of a challenge

      I went in 2019 and honestly it was rather poorly TO'd and organized, I was pretty unimpressed with EVO just as a tournament.

      Perhaps bringing in the combo breaker guy as the new general manager will lead to some changes.

                AI play way better than actual people simply because of input reading resulting in absurd options for situations that would never happen in a match against humans.

                Yeah, people are buying these games for the story after all, they want to see Ryu not fuck Sakura or Chun Li and lose to Akuma for the 37th time or see Kazuya/Heihachi throw Heihachi/Kazuya off another cliff again. That's the real appeal of the genre.

                The best way to do single player fighting games is to just use different genre's of games for that part. Like how Tekken just had beat em ups and bowling games or SF6 is doing some kind of open world thing. The typical 1 on 1 gameplay doesn't lend itself well to compelling singleplayer content. The most creative it gets is Mortal Kombat just literally throwing shit at you in the middle of a fight.

                there's not a single fighting game AI that is worth fighting for the experience of fighting it. At this point either you invent literal artificial intelligence or just give up trying to make them interesting.

                I don't think there's actually a single AI in any game that is fun to fight for the experience of direct competition against the AI, in fact. Every single fun fight I can think of in any genre is fun because of the mechanics of the fight and the overall fight design, all the AI has to do is not get easily looped/cheesed or input read too hard.
                I guess chess AI is pretty good and chess players use it to practice for playing real people, so that's an exception. But even RTS vs the ai is only fun for the experience of playing an RTS, making a base and building an army and making them fight, not the part where you try to outplay your opponent while he tries to outplay you.

                Fighting game mechanics are designed to be fun for two humans to use to fight each other. That's basically all they're good at. If you remove the human element the flaws in AI and the unsuitability of the mechanics become apparent really quickly. It's impossible to mix the computer, if they fail to block something it's not because you overwhelmed them and they missed the reaction, it's not because you were in their head and knew they weren't ready for it, it just rolled dice and decided not to.
                If you want to fight the computer play a beatemup or something where a boss can just have patterns and still be fun.

      The FGC is kill, the time to fight is long gone. Every single major tournament in the west handed Infiltration a ban without explaining him why and they all did it in the same day. You know what that means? It means all these major tournaments are no longer separate entities, they are all under the eSport banner now and their general is Rick The gay. It's over.

      The only reason he’s banned is unironically racism, if he was anything but Korean he would have some sort of ally on the scene but he does not so he’s fucked

      Like half the issue is nobody even knows korean so people get meme translations, people think he literally raped his wife and went to jail and other stupid shit

          Tekken has the ability to low, mid, high crush moves through ducking, jumping, priority, sidestep, backstep, and armor. GB has some of this but a lot is regulated to meter and very sparse, almost every move is avoidable in any neutral situation in Tekken.

        Probably not. It's another big con in my decision to even try it out.

    If they put the Melty tournament in the venue bathroom and broadcast it from there, then I would watch.

    reminder fighting games are prevalent in the moron, moron, chud and pedo communities. if you watch or play fighting games, you are a member of the aforementioned communities.

    Didnt gllty get banned from tournaments, or at least publicly exposed, for groping female attendees? And tried to play it off on some "its ok, i'm a "girl" too, its normal haha" type shit?
    The only real trans fighter that has maintained relevancy as a competitor is Tricky Ricky Ortiz, he never changed his main and almost always makes it to top 8 in most tournaments. Gllty never made it far, anyway

      this game isn't real. It's an elaborate piece of performance art created by an anonymous japanese street artist, all the supposed players are paid actors just making silly faces and flailing at a controller while the screen plays a prerecorded video

    It should be playable by now. The last time I tried it out was last Spring so I'm sure it's gotten a fair bit of development since then if they're considering it tournament viable. IIRC the dev was also trying to add netplay.

      Oh were you replying to me? (

      can we play a few matches in it?

      If it doesn't have netplay currently then nevermind.
