Fighting games

>2024
> I am forgotten

Everyone I know is tired of SF6. The focus on avatar stuff, the lack of new stages and costumes, the shit roster, the shit DLC Characters and pacing... They're killing a game that had a great start.

Too bad I'm not into Tekken. What are you playing and looking forward in the fighting genre?

    I'm playing Tekken 8 now. It's way better than SF6 but feels like an arcade/beta release due to its poor balance and testing.

      The problem with fighting games is the first few weeks/months are even more essential than other genres to have a stable and fun release as they are the most enjoyable times to play it online before people move on. Frick it up and you're game is even more dead in the water because FGs need an active community.

        Yup. SF and Tekken have advantage in that they're crossplay and are mainstream so new players always drop in when there's a sale. This is why SF5 could live despite being so hot garbage for so long.

        Am I the only one who doesn't mind playing with CPUs? Why should I give a shit if the game is dead. Both SF and Tekken have a SP campaign.

          Yes. CPU can't get tricked by my high/low mixup because it's literally reading my inputs, where is the fun in that? If you try to use your brain and develop strategies, you will learn what the CPU is weak to (I think SF6's is weak to sweeps, but I don't remember) and from them on it will lose every time as it can't adapt. Where is the fun then?

        I never play fighting games online, even during the launch/honeymoon period. Until I'm able to turn on an option that goes "ok, if the person OTK, infinites you to death they get punched in the balls and disconnected on automatically" I don't care how "GOOD THE EXPERIENCE DURING THIS PERIOD!!!™" is.

        I'll continue to button mash when the titles are $10-30 and don't include Enigma Malware, Denuvo, and/or EpigOnlineSpyware.dll and be happy.

    ppsspp rollback and duckstation being added to fightcade, SF4 rollback would also be cool. tbh i've accepted that the fighting game genre doesn't make games to appeal to old heads like me anymore. tekkens movement sucks, street fighter has more mechanics than an anime game. it's better to play something i like rather than get mad over something i don't. all i really want for the genre is for more legacy support. SF and arcsys titles have it pretty good. but i feel really sorry for tekken boomers who really don't have any options.

      >I know at least SF6's training mode is better than T8's
      I wouldn't say that. I'd say they both are good tools but T8 makes it easier to replicate situations for a game that has, like others put it, too many knowledge checks.

          If it were 10 years ago I’d say Shoryuken forums or EventHubs, but apparently the former doesn’t work anymore when I tried it earlier, and the latter doesn’t seem to have a forum or I’m just that blind. There’s always Facebook or a Google search for FGC meetups in your vicinity… or get lucky and meet some players out and about like at a bar. That last one is how I got introduced to my weeklies. Just so happened to play the TO in 3rd Strike at a barcade one evening and he shared info about his events.

            When SRK was about to shutdown, a small amount of users made the MegaShock forums. Which basically has the same few users to this day and is therefore irrelevant. Then SRK itself gave way to SuperCombo. The SuperCombo forums are deader than dead. Eventhubs hasn't had a forum, an upcoming events area, a live streams area, or a purpose in general for years.

    That can happen. But most likely you never liked the game in the first place, you're just addicted to novelty and need constant patches and "content" to have fun. People are playing games like +R, BlazBlue, 3rd Strike and more to this day, without any hope of a patch. Even Granblue, before Rising was announced. But somehow SF6 taking months to change stuff means the game is being killed? I miss the old FGC, zoomers were a mistake.

        And those other characters:

        I wouldn't say all over the place. If you consider how many characters are tournament viable, as in, can actually win CapCup, it's probably the best balance this series ever had for a first patch. JP, Luke, Ken, Cammy, Chun-Li, DeeJay, Guile, Juri, Rashid or Blanka are all characters I could see realistically winning high level tournaments, and that is literally half of the cast. If they made another patch in the middle of the season, and we got stuck on it until CapCup, there would have been high chances they would have made it worse and it would be too late for an emergency patch.

        Who make up half of the cast. Too many people are playing Ken and Luke indeed, but that is always gonna be the case with whichever good character is the easiest.

    You make it sound like you only play fighting games when they’re new to satisfy your urge to consume. You’re not a fighting game fan. I’ve been playing sf off and on for 30 years.

        You're pretty dumb dude. Tekken 8 has arcade, story (that's literally just cutscenes, fights and half-baked Tekken Force) practice, and online. That's it.
        Street Fighter 6 has all of those but more. I'm pretty disappointed in how Capcom have been handling post-release content but SF6 has several minigames (T8 has a single one, and it's shit), the practice mode is way more in-depth, it's got an actual story mode with hours of content that's not just watching cutscenes, way better lobbies (that contain retro Capcom titles too), customizable characters (both outfits and custom moves), etc.
        The only things Tekken 8 has over SF6 are the ghost mode and that one thing where you can fight replays of other players. Shame the game hasn't even got good netcode.

          Tekken allows you to customize playable character outfits, and has more outfits by default than what SF6 has after DLC. So it has that over SF6. Not that I think customizable character costumes are a good thing.

            I'll give you the other ones but this has always been the case with Tekken because they reuse shit year after year after year. Capcom redoes all models, rigs, animations and voicelines each iteration. The same can't be said for Tekken, just look at Hwoarang, Kazuya and Bryan. They're using ancient animations and up until Tekken 7, some characters still had voicelines taken from Tekken fricking 3.

It's first world gays with their modern apartments built for wifi who are fricking everything up. And I have numbers to back it up, pic related, from the T8 beta.

      I describe it here:

      KOFXV is fun and has a large enough Cross-play player base.
      excited for the new Garou/fatal fury.

      I'm in such a Fighting game drought I thought about getting Tekken 8 even though I did not enjoy Tekken 7 and 8 just feels like a new mechanic update to it.

      >SF6
      Feels unbalanced and way way too flowchart based. No character expression unless you have the best Green Gunk normals.
      >Strive
      Not really a GG game. An anime SF5, but has traded all good will to chase people that don't play the game. Now people just post LGBTQIAP+ stuff rather than playing the actual game. Every character added is like overwatch where the focus is on their identity and people just drop their fixation with the last character. Ie: Testament > Bridget > next gay character. The online lobbies being bad is just vomit icing on a shit cake.
      >DBFZ
      Love the game but it needed the rollback update yesterday.
      >MK1
      0 character expression. Possibly the worst in all modern fighters. Unfinished to the point you can't search for online matches while training. Comboing is all it has and the combos are boring with lack of on the fly adjustments thanks to the dial system. People learn 2 combos and repeat. Assists do nothing for the game. On disk DLC with things like Quan being playable in story. Micro-transactions, horrendous 3rd act of the story mode, ugly redesigns, invasion being the worst single player experience. This was Wallet rape and I was a victim.
      >SSBU
      Fun but online is bad and I am ready for the next one.
      >KOFXV
      Very fun and expressive. Mods work online. Only issue is people b***hing about hispanics being hispanics in local tournaments, (ie: Chris G). Needs more players but not to the point it is a discord fighter.

      You guys want more of my opinions?

      tldr
      One of the most boring fighters that wallet rapes you. Game is completely unfinished to the point where Boon is asking for Twitter polls whether he adds:
      >Wifi / corded indacators
      >Searching for matches online
      >Fixing desync
      ^ Yes you can look this up.

      The story also drops the ball so hard in the 3rd act it retroactively makes everything worse. (Also the powerscaling is fricked completely due to NRS' inability to shake up their Character Chapter based story telling. Example: Milenna beats multiple characters that God Lui Kang jobs hard to. Scorpion has the ALL the villains on their backs looking at the lights in the 2nd part and does not kill any of them and runs off.)

      Basically yes. Look at KoFXV for example. In theory, it's the game a bunch of people would like, if you listen to complaints about games like Strive or Granblue. That is, it's a game that rewards legacy skill, didn't dumb down anything, has a bunch of characters and so on. But the problem is: it launched with a broken ranked mode, and people understandably dropped the game. It also looks outdated, which filtered many people. But for those who don't care about graphics, it would be the perfect game if online worked. Well, it took 1 year but ranked is finally fixed! This means all those people who dropped the game and who keep up with fighting games news will hear about this and come back in droves right? LMAO no. No one ever goes back to a game they dropped. Ever. If this flavor of the month didn't work, it's on to the next, even if it was the perfect game for you and you dropped it for a single issue that got fixed since then. It's why UNI2 is troubled, it's why SFV remained underplayed despite fixing most of it's issues, it's why no one is trying SamSho again now that it has rollback, it's why no one who is unsatisfied with modern games is looking at KI now that it got a new update, and so on.

    OC donut steals are fine for viewpoint, but it doesn't feel like they're part of the world when NO ONE else is allowed to interact with anything except for them.

      They did. The problem is that story is happening in the background, which you see in the arcade modes and the prequel comic, and from talking to the characters in World Tour. World Tour itself is just a way for people to get immersed into the world of Street Fighter, having a personal plot about their OC. But Ken got screwed by JP and scarred Luke, Guile is trying to help him, Cammy is investigating Shadaloo, Juri went to Nayshall after having a mid life crisis and is now looking for Helen, Rashis is being stalked by Shadaloo... characters are doing things in the story, but that is not the story you play in WT.

        And that's the issue. They should have integrated those into World Tour rather than having them happen in the background. This game has a tag team mechanic ffs.

There's probably a shared market of less than a million fighting game players on the entire planet, across all platforms. I doubt it even breaks half a million.

          You are half correct. Nobody, not even Brazilians or japanese like fricking Blanka or Honda. They are the eternal, immutable roster hogs, never to be excluded from the base roster of every single street fighter. Nobody really likes deejay either, but it seems like his street fighter 6 iteration is considerably more well liked. Even I admit he has kind of grown on me. His old design was boring, he seemed like a weird psycho and too Black personish, now he gives off a more universal rastafarian vibe. Zangief, you're just plain wrong. Nobody plays him cause he sucks, but everyone loves the character himself. He probably has more one trick pony mains than anyone except akuma.

            One of the few things that SFV did right was bumping Honda and Blanka to DLC. They knew then that these characters didn't need to be up first on the vanilla roster, and it was okay to add them later as DLC. Then SF6 goes right back to autistically needing to include all of the World Warriors on the vanilla roster

      No game holds people's attentions for that long anymore unless it's pushing out content constantly. It's weird because back in the day a lot of fighting games had no hopes of ever being patched, people had to wait for the Super Arcade Edition or whatever. They still played all the time. Now if there isn't a new patch in a month the game is dead. But the definition of dead also changed. We didn't have steam charts posting back then. People say that games like Type Lumina or Skullgirls are dead, but compared to niche games from that time like the original Melty or any Guilty Gear for example, having over a 100 people online at any given time, and having playable online with people from other regions thanks to rollback would have been considered nothing short of miraculous. Having multiple fighting games with over 1000 concurrent players on PC and good online sounds like a dream for anyone from the SF4 era. Yet UNI2 and Granblue are considered to be dying nowadays because they hover around 900-2000 players daily. I think expectations just changed, not the games.

Another month and you're getting bored again, but someone shows you a 360p niconico video of a Japanese player doing something you never thought of, now you're excited again as the game completely changed with this information. Then you get bored, but it's EVO time and Daigo shows you that your whole region was playing the game wrong, and the Japanese player you copied was a nobody.

        Games are just way simpler now. Games get solved in a week because there's only a week's worth of stuff to find. Devs have been simplifying and removing complexity, universalizing systems and characters and removing edge cases and specific options and as a result you see everything there is to see after a month or two and then all that's left is refinement.
        Whereas in jank old games like pre-strive GG people are still implementing new shit for weird corner case interactions or specific optimizations even though the game has been out for longer than some of the of the players have been alive

          People are still implementing new shit for weird corner cases in games like SF6 and Strive too. But they are weird corner cases. Look at SF6's Ken for example. He has a lot of combo freedom, lots of different routes based on whether the opponent is standing or crouching, how much of which meter he wants to spend, where he is on the screen, spacing, whether you want corner carry, damage, meter, etc. But most people other than AngryBird are just gonna use the same bnbs anyway and win. So you're not gonna see much of it. The basics are already optimized and have been for months and that is all you will see in 99% of matches. There is no way SF4 wouldn't be solved as quickly if it released today and weird corner cases you rarely see aren't gonna keep your attention forever. SF4 isn't any more complex than 6.

      i like ed, but releasing him only after rashid and aki and before akuma is so dumb. keep in mind the year 1 pass costs 30 bucks. the most popular character releases ONE FRICKING YEAR after the game's release, the other three characters are eh at best. where is adon? balrog? sagat? dudley? feng? sakura? so many characters they could have included to generate hype.

        I haven't turned the game on since AKI came out. Capcom clearly doesnt give a shit about anything but money this season, and I'm tired of fighting Kens and Lukes. I've been tired of fighting Ken for decades now. As soon as I saw 15 dollar ninja turtle costumes, I knew it was over for this season. They got their money, and they moved on to promoting other games while this collects money on the back burner until season 2 - i'll come back to it when something interesting happens, or when they add a single character I find fun to play as.

    I bought it when it was discounted and thought I'd check it out as I was fan.
    SF6 roster is bland, it's like a mix of zoomer core (what these f2p companies do) and something what Capcom would do.
    World Tourl needs huge machine to run at 60 fps. Static models, static 'open world', when I restrict the game to 30 fps it takes 20% of cpu but if I let it free to 60 fps it will take 75% in places.
    I have never seen any game doing this. Especially this Chink mobile tier shit shouldn't be doing this.
    Answer: no, it's not about getting a better PC because you are a moron if you don't know how games are supposed to run.

    Street Fighter 6 has the worst Season 1 DLC in fighting game history. Vanilla fighting game rosters are usually small by today's standards, so it's usually the first season's job to fill in some of the more glaring omissions from the vanilla roster and to give people something to look forward to in order to maintain that launch window momentum. SF6 thought a good way to do that would be to bring back TWO SFV characters that nobody likes, a new character who is a spiritual successor to ANOTHER SFV character that nobody liked... and then finally Akuma. It's such a baffling choice that in a game where we still have none of the Four Kings, no Alpha characters, and no SF3 characters that Capcom is already padding things with these boring SFV characters

    KOFXV is fun and has a large enough Cross-play player base.
    excited for the new Garou/fatal fury.

    I'm in such a Fighting game drought I thought about getting Tekken 8 even though I did not enjoy Tekken 7 and 8 just feels like a new mechanic update to it.

    >SF6
    Feels unbalanced and way way too flowchart based. No character expression unless you have the best Green Gunk normals.
    >Strive
    Not really a GG game. An anime SF5, but has traded all good will to chase people that don't play the game. Now people just post LGBTQIAP+ stuff rather than playing the actual game. Every character added is like overwatch where the focus is on their identity and people just drop their fixation with the last character. Ie: Testament > Bridget > next gay character. The online lobbies being bad is just vomit icing on a shit cake.
    >DBFZ
    Love the game but it needed the rollback update yesterday.
    >MK1
    0 character expression. Possibly the worst in all modern fighters. Unfinished to the point you can't search for online matches while training. Comboing is all it has and the combos are boring with lack of on the fly adjustments thanks to the dial system. People learn 2 combos and repeat. Assists do nothing for the game. On disk DLC with things like Quan being playable in story. Micro-transactions, horrendous 3rd act of the story mode, ugly redesigns, invasion being the worst single player experience. This was Wallet rape and I was a victim.
    >SSBU
    Fun but online is bad and I am ready for the next one.
    >KOFXV
    Very fun and expressive. Mods work online. Only issue is people b***hing about hispanics being hispanics in local tournaments, (ie: Chris G). Needs more players but not to the point it is a discord fighter.

        I agree but, I also think it is some form of strange rejection from other fighter fans, (namely street fighter) when their top complaint is that they MUST LEARN 3 CHARACTERS!
        Nvm that:
        Marvel series
        DBFZ
        all exist, are popular and require multi-character learning.

          I think this is all just cope. SNK just doesn't make appealing products. If they did, people would care about their games. Their other game Samsho wouldn't be dead either even after getting better online. Outside of gameplay which is really mostly subjective, KOF 15 has nothing to offer that the other current FGs out doesn't have but more and better. It doesn't have the content that SF6, Tekken 8 and MK1 has, and it doesn't have the flashy visuals that Strive, Tekken 8, and MK1 has. The only thing that can be argued is the gameplay being "fun", and as said before, that can be more subjective than anything else. And if it's not considered all that fun for some, then there's zero it has over everything else.

              I pretty much agree with all that. But SF/Capcom can get away with all that because they have 1000x the nostalgia-bias/legacy than SNK.

              I agree that their presentation needs to improve and it has.
              KOFXV objectively looks good. And the next Fatal Fury looks better.
              Although the "presentation" argument really only extends to KOF14 as well as """fake fans""" that ""totally would play if it looked like KOF13"" even though they never played it to begin with.

              Though I did skip 14 because of the presentation so I get WHY and HOW people could have felt this way. (just not with 15)

              Really the choice is:
              SNK gets better and better with 3d and continues to make profitable and fun games.
              OR
              SNK goes back to KOF13 style and goes bankrupt again because the people b***hing don't play KOF to begin with.

              People ask for them to go back to 12/13 style so much because it was the last time they made anything that didn't look completely garbage and 3 gens behind. Also the last time anyone outside their niche fanbase cared about/had any interest in what they did.

    All you zoomers are ADD morons spoiled by monthly DLC and updates. If a fighting game gets boring, it's not really because it's bad, it's because you play it too much and need to take a break, because there are thousands of other good games other than Street Fighter 6. Unless you are seriously competitive, or a fricking pro, or you're too broke to buy spend money on another fighter, you shouldn't even be bored of one fighting game.

      The meta is growing stale, largely dominated by the same handful of characters and an homogeneity caused by universal mechanics like raw Drive Rush and Drive Impact, and also (with raw Drive Rush in particular) add a layer of inconsistency that make the game feel arbitrary at times. Throw loops and clear checkmate situations during burnout are also sucking the fun out of the game.

      On TOP of all that, there are also issues with inputs. Not just the screen freeze of Drive Rush straight up eating your inputs, I'm talking how the game interprets button presses, which causes people to execute accidental supers in neutral or when they want to do a Dragon Punch instead.

      I could even add many, many more complaints of my own that aren't talked about as often, but this post is already long enough. So that's pretty much the gist on the technical side of things.

      Aside from all that, SF6 is also in desperate need of more content, but Capcom is being slow as frick with updating the game. Overpriced avatar shit is just rubbing salt on the wound, especially considering that Tekken 8 doesn't have that cancerous monetization, and you can even customize the look of the main fighters.

      Even though I generally prefer the more calculated precision and condensed nature of 2D games, I still find Tekken 8 to be more fun, and overall is probably the better fighting game of the two. T8 also shits - and I mean it SHITS on SF6 art style and music, even as someone who likes a handful of tracks in SF6.

          As if Akuma isn't DLC. Not to mention other iconic characters and fan favorites like Sagat, Vega, Bison, Balrog, Makoto, etc. etc. not making the cut either in the base roster or even Season 1 in favor of Rashid, a FANG redesign, and Ed.

            Okay so you're admitting Bamco's DLC is just as predatory as Capcom's then? Also Eddy Gordo is not Akuma. Eddy Gordo singlehandedly made Tekken 3 the record-breaking game it was and is probably just below "Hadoken" for fighting game things normies most widely recognize. It would be like putting Chun Li or Sub-Zero behind a paywall. It's scum to the nth degree and Bamco knew what they were doing.

                No? Capcom forces you to pay for shitcoins just to buy outfits. Not to mention the battle pass, and completely absurd price gouging for avatar costumes.

                >Also Eddy Gordo is not Akuma. Eddy Gordo singlehandedly made Tekken 3 the record-breaking game it was and is probably just below "Hadoken" for fighting game things normies most widely recognize.
                That sounds like a load of horseshit, and even if true, you're overplaying your argument in such a dramatic way that makes you sound like a queer. I grew up with Tekken 3 and mashing with Eddy, and couldn't care less him being DLC. I didn't pay for T8's season pass and I don't feel a burning desire to play him.
                I feel way more sour about SF6 not having Sagat, Urien, Fei Long, Dudley, etc. than Eddy being dlc for T8. There are shit load of other characters I want to play in the base roster, but I can't say the same thing for SF6.

                >I grew up with Tekken 3 and mashing with Eddy, and couldn't care less him being DLC.
                And there it is. "I don't want this character so him being paywalled isn't a problem."

                Bullshit. Winrates prove you wrong. No, it's not that the best character in the game just happens to have so cryptic style and match-up that nobody knows how to play against them. There are drastic differences in winrates between characters and you can feel the difference while playing.

                Balance is far from perfect. My friend plays Ken? I lose the set. He hops on Chun? I win the set. The opponent is JP instead of x? My chances of winning are drastically reduced.

                Combine balance issues with the game design that puts emphasis on universal mechanics with yolo aspect. What you get is a mess.

    There'll be a resurgence around next EVO when they announce the next season pack and everyone wants to pick up the characters that top 8 EVO. Akuma dropping might also give a small boost, because he's both a popular legacy character and generally been strong

            Not him but how is it deeper than UNI2 or KoFXV? It has a dial-a-combo system, no special moves, no meter management (heat you just activate whenever, there is nothing to manage there), you get a free super when you get low health, no links or cancels...

            sorry, i meant games that actually have players. also, none of that superfluous garbage is necessary for depth. the soul calibur games were much better before they added meter management.

            you still do have to manage your heat. it's not like you can use it infinitely and when its activated certain moves use more or less of your meter.

          Tekken 8 is a shallow borefest of button mashing and lacklustre design

          As an avid gamer, it pains me to say that Tekken 8 is nothing short of a disappointing and lacklustre experience that fails to deliver on almost every front. This so-called "fighting game" is more like a casual button-mashing extravaganza, devoid of any real depth or complexity that true enthusiasts crave.

          First and foremost, the gameplay is a mind-numbing exercise in monotony. Forget about mastering intricate combos or executing strategic moves – Tekken 8 caters to the lowest common denominator with its simplistic, mindless button-mashing mechanics. It's more reminiscent of a game designed for toddlers than a serious fighting title. If you're looking for a challenge that engages your intellect, look elsewhere.

          Let's talk about the characters – or should I say, the uninspired cardboard cutouts that populate this virtual wasteland. With a roster that feels like it was cobbled together from rejected concepts, Tekken 8's characters lack the charisma and uniqueness that define memorable fighters. These so-called "combatants" are nothing more than forgettable, generic stereotypes, with none of the charm or personality found in other, more thoughtfully crafted games

          Furthermore, the storyline – if you can even call it that – is a convoluted mess that lacks coherence and fails to engage players. It's a feeble attempt at narrative that falls flat, leaving players questioning why they bothered investing any time in the first place.

          In conclusion, Tekken 8is a sad testament to the decline of creativity and innovation in the gaming industry. If you're seeking a game with substance, depth, and captivating visuals, Tekken 8 is unequivocally not the answer. Save your hard-earned money for a title that respects its players and delivers an experience worthy of the term "video game." Tekken 8, you've missed the mark – by a long shot.

      Tekken is made exactly for casuals and has been made more so since 3 idiot.

      I don't think so. People looking for a fighting game to play don't think:
      >I wonder which of the games with good online I should play. Hey, that one game released a year ago got an update, looks fun, I'm gonna check it out.
      They think:
      >Which game has come out recently or is gonna come out soon? Only shitty games? Who cares that an older game is exactly what I was looking for, what about my FOMO? What about steam charts?
      No one who complains about Strive went back to +R and Xrd.

      I still think about all the post rollback release posts with like 3,000 or above likes praising +R or xrd, then looking at how many are playing either and realizing with sadness that old GG games really are just secondary magnets that people want to talk about and look at rather than play.

          It really isn't. Maybe more than mk1 but it's simplicity/complexity is about the same as SF6 the same way 7's was the same as sfv's. Easy as shit combos, easy as shit combos that take like a 3rd if your health minimum, stupid cutscene super that you only get when your health is low, dumbfrick cutscene armor move for promoting aggressive play or to use as a "I really don't want to block" tool. I do like both immensely but neither are really that complex.

      There is a schizo who posts anti-tekken copypasta like this:

      Tekken 8 is a shallow borefest of button mashing and lacklustre design

      As an avid gamer, it pains me to say that Tekken 8 is nothing short of a disappointing and lacklustre experience that fails to deliver on almost every front. This so-called "fighting game" is more like a casual button-mashing extravaganza, devoid of any real depth or complexity that true enthusiasts crave.

      First and foremost, the gameplay is a mind-numbing exercise in monotony. Forget about mastering intricate combos or executing strategic moves – Tekken 8 caters to the lowest common denominator with its simplistic, mindless button-mashing mechanics. It's more reminiscent of a game designed for toddlers than a serious fighting title. If you're looking for a challenge that engages your intellect, look elsewhere.

      Let's talk about the characters – or should I say, the uninspired cardboard cutouts that populate this virtual wasteland. With a roster that feels like it was cobbled together from rejected concepts, Tekken 8's characters lack the charisma and uniqueness that define memorable fighters. These so-called "combatants" are nothing more than forgettable, generic stereotypes, with none of the charm or personality found in other, more thoughtfully crafted games

      Furthermore, the storyline – if you can even call it that – is a convoluted mess that lacks coherence and fails to engage players. It's a feeble attempt at narrative that falls flat, leaving players questioning why they bothered investing any time in the first place.

      In conclusion, Tekken 8is a sad testament to the decline of creativity and innovation in the gaming industry. If you're seeking a game with substance, depth, and captivating visuals, Tekken 8 is unequivocally not the answer. Save your hard-earned money for a title that respects its players and delivers an experience worthy of the term "video game." Tekken 8, you've missed the mark – by a long shot.

      along the same few anti-tekken images:

    KOF will never succeed because it lacks the spectacle of Tekken, SF6, MK, and Strive. The gameplay hasn't had any major shake ups and legacy skill is a major factor as well. It's not cool enough for casuals to eat up and filters most people who haven't been playing it for years now.

      KOFXV didn't succeed for 2 very simple reasons:
      - The game is ugly as sin (and the contrast with how good KOFXIII looked makes this even more stark)
      - The matchmaking was broken for 2 goddamn years.

      If they launched the rollback patch for XIII on the PC along with the console as well as crossplay and communicated reasonable timeframes for fixing their chinkcode then the game might still have a community. SNK is such a haplessly run company. Can't wait for them to frick up my favorite franchise in 2025 or whenever Garou is supposed to launch.

          It is not great and with the way the drive gauge is set up they really can't do anything with parries or slime rush without the entire system falling apart since both mechanics feed into each other. The tiers are literally defined by who has a good drive rush and/or who has a good, low commitment anti-drive rush button. But hey at least people stopped whining about throw loops, right?

          Breaker isn't for everyone. I think at it's full potential the system is the best combo system in fightan games because of the mindgames. But it can lead to decision fatigue for every clean hit to become an effective mixup and the system sucks in a netplay environment where people won't rematch and you can't get past level 1 reads.

      The characters are extremely creative. Look up how characters like Gargos, Eyedol Aria or Aganos work. I've never seen anything close in any other game. It also had revolutionary netcode for the time, the trick being that the game runs internally at 90fps but only renders 60fps, so that they have some invisible frames to work with for rollback. It's also very grounded and footsies based like SF. But I got filtered by the combo system. I also don't like the Instinct system, which was v-triggers before v-triggers. Anyway if I'm not mistaken you can try it for free and it got an update recently, you can just check it out yourself.

                lel. lmao even.

                KBD was arguably what made tekken good. without it the game becomes a moron proof mashfest. check T8 and T7 for examples.

                KBD grinds Tekken's neutral to a halt and it would become a mashfest because frame data in the game, particularly recovery and block adv, is unhinged and whiff punishing is the only real way to open players up. If the game falls apart without fast spammable backdashes to evade any attempt to engage then that's a problem with everything else. If lows and grabs weren't reactable, combos weren't more about wall carry for potential splats than actually setting up oki, and Bamco didn't sell overtuned guest characters that snap the rules of the franchise over their knee then maybe there would be some fun to be had. But that bandaid will stay on until the end of time because keeping KBD is easier than fixing their game.

        For decent fighting game players, sure. But I remember when SF6 came out there were pros from other games having an aneurysm from having to do links at all. Shame I didn't save the tweets. I remember specifically Cloud805 and a few other DBFZ and Strive players complaining about how hard SF combos are since it's all links you have to time properly instead of cancels. Even though links are easy as hell here.
