        It's what I was raised on, my local arcade had a 2i can, we never got 3s. I have never, ever enjoyed 3s, they raped Sean, fighting brainless Chuns makes me want to kill myself in 3s and that's half the fucking playerbase. I don't know why you're so skeptical but whatever.

      This is the right answer. Play them back to back. 3S has noticeably less animation and more compressed music in comparison. And for what? A bloated roster of (mostly) forgettable, shitty characters and a meme rap song?

        2I has far better presentation, I 100% agree, but you're a retard if you think the game itself is better. The fact that 3s has no major infinites alone puts it above 2I.
        I'll never not be upset about what a downgrade the stages from NG/2I to 3S was, but I think 3s' soundtrack is overall better, even though 2I is full of absolute jams as well

          I don't know how people think 2I had better presentation unless you just really, really hate rap. Everything about it looked cheap and ugly, the sound design was fucking awful, especially the voices, even the fucking character select art was worse. It had better stages but everything about the presentation was trash. Fucking Alpha 1 had better presentation.

            2I had

            >more standout UI
            >fully animated and lively stages
            >unique win screens
            all of which were downgraded in 3S. I prefer Daigo Ikeno's art to Kinu Nishimura but don't you dare sit there and shit on the art for NG.
            I think from an outsider's perspective, gameplay of 2I is going to catch more eyes than gameplay of 3s.

              It looked like trash. Everything about both of them except the stages was worse. Like the cheapest, most poverty menu and UI design imaginable. The sound alone makes it one of the most unpleasant SF games. Even the fucking logo was worse. It was ugly.
              From an outside perspective 2I gameplay historically did not catch more eyes than 3S I don't even have to argue that point, history already did it for me.

                All 3 iterations of SF3 were huge bombs you scoundrel, 3s only caught on years later. And you have to be an absolute cretin to think pic related is worse than "character portrait next to stupid letter grade + vague win quote"
                I do think the character select music in 3s alone puts it above the first 2, but outside of that it's terribly boring and leaves no lasting impression.

        I'm sorry, anon. I was too hateful on 3S because it's Ganker. Honestly, I really like it despite the downgrade to make it fit all on a disc. I once heard the XBLA Online Edition has better quality music at least- if we had the 2I stages it'd probably be one of the best fighting games out there. Hopefully Capcom gives it the USF2 treatment when they need a quick buck or Nintendo release game.

    I do think Third Strike had the best designs and soundtrack, so therefore it's top tier to me. I will admit that SF VI at least went back to a "decent" artstyle compared to the PLAY-DOH GARBAGE that we got in SFV, jesus. The art style in SFV was just fucking hot trash.

      Marvel 3 is eternal, so that's my answer. It lives on 11+ years later despite the lack of support and not having a rollback solution of any kind because people just like it that much. 3S is obviously still played 20+ years later but this thread shows plenty of SF fans dislike it and it's been a Fightcade staple for a long time.

      SF3 New Generation was going to be a new IP but they lacked faith in it so they put in Ryu & Ken (making Sean quickly by recoloring their sprites) and called it Street Fighter. It very much isn't SF in many ways but in a way that's why a lot of people like it. It also gave the series characters like Dudley & Urien, and was the introduction of EX specials (well, 2nd Impact was).

    I'll never not hate whiffing normals to build meter. I think that'd be the one thing I'd remove if given the opportunity, yes even above nerfing Yun/Chun.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Whiffing normals for meter is like 1/3rd of why Chun is Top Tier anyway. She spaces you out until she has a bar and then becomes insanely scary while building more meter; if she can't build meter in neutral and actually has to approach when her only good meterless mix tool is Kara Throw then she's fighting an uphill battle at round start. At that point, Chuns would pick SA1 more often since the inconsistency of her current gameplay would make an insanely good anti-air super more appealing in multiple matchups.

      >Dragon Ball Z Budokai 3
      Good fucking game for a casual fighter, lots of soul was put into every character to make them all unique. The teleporting war games were amazing at creating tension. The only thing that let the game down was that rock/paper/scissor mechanic that became repetitive and went on for far too long. I hear that the Burst version is basically Budokai 3 without that mechanic and more characters like Pikon.

      Arcade fighters were dying already by the time 3S came out and the lack of popularity for SF3 is more on New Generation being a pile of shit. Even just for Capcom fighting games, they still made a few after 3S and only decided to shelf the genre after Capcom Fighting Jam.

      I'm not the biggest 3S fan but people attribute the death of the genre to it when it was released after that process began.

    If 3rd strike is your favorite fighting game you probably just havent actually played it or you have little experience with fighters. The shit is insanely unbalanced and has one of the most rigid top tiers ever. On top of that the character archetypes are really limited. No speed characters no heavy pressure characters projectiles are made useless from parrying and theres next to no zoning. The games biggest issue is imbalance and homogenity of the roster. It looks cool and has great music but the game as a fighter is kind of mediocre.

      The game is heavily flawed, yes, and the people calling it perfect are the ones that are obvious secondaries. Still, its an incredibly enjoyable fighter despite it's glaring issues. If the best fighting game was the most balanced one then most older games would be completely out of the running.

            Something people never mention is how you actually have access to different pushblock distances, which is why it works the way it does. Top players literally strategize different pushblock distances, it's honestly insane.

            You just go online. Maybe look over your characters wiki pages to see what their most immediately bullshit moves are and a BnB but beside that nothing beside playing will help you. Training mode can only help you once you gain actual context of matches.

    Maybe not better, but the one with the most sentimental value for me. I can't play or listen to the soundtrack without thinking of better days, playing local matches with my old bros as we each got better and better.

      Lose a lot, train a lot, watch a lot, play a lot. Eventually you just have to go online. Maybe join a discord and find someone willing to kick your ass before heading off online.

      You really only need to know about 3 easy combos and a small amount of frame data. Get really good at those combos and hit confirms and you're good to go. Rest is just building on that.

      Just don't play Tekken, it's a low brow game for shitters. Just play SF

      You play games at release or when there's a large enough pool of beginners.
      The big thing is playing consciously, and if needs be look for ressources.

      Do not listen to these guys (

      Lose a lot.

      Something people never mention is how you actually have access to different pushblock distances, which is why it works the way it does. Top players literally strategize different pushblock distances, it's honestly insane.

      You just go online. Maybe look over your characters wiki pages to see what their most immediately bullshit moves are and a BnB but beside that nothing beside playing will help you. Training mode can only help you once you gain actual context of matches.

      ), you're most likely gonna have a very bad time, you'll learn painfully slowly, because despite what lots of people desperate for a new punching bag tells you, getting perfected is not a good way to learn, there are levels to this stuff, ideally you want to learn and fights people slightly stronger than you.

      You'll progress faster by playing at your speed, with other beginners, you won't get as frustrated and your learning process will be fragmented and much more rewarding.

        Your problem is you see only winning as progress. Losing every game in a set doesn't mean you didn't grow.

          It's not about winning only, it's about winning sufficiently to keep having fun and keeping your motivations.

          It's also about learning things naturally, and step by step, and you can't do that against a veteran who will throw hell at you, you'll get hit by everything at the same time and you won't register things properly.

          A newbie who fight a masher jumping at him constantly will learn to anti air and punish moves really quickly, he'll win half the time or more and every new things he learn will result in dramatic improvement, each of these little win will make him feel like a pro.
          A newbie who fight a veteran, who will whiff punish him, shimmy him, safe jump, kara throw, jump air parries and SA cancel for his perfect, will not learn any of those concept, it will also be extremely disheartening because it will take him hundreds of hours to hold his own against most of the player base.

      People easily overestimate what you "need" to learn in fighting games. Best way to get good is by playing. When picking up a new game / character, spend 15 minutes in training mode checking your buttons out, maybe google the simplest combo (you can most likely figure something out in 15mins anyways), and just go play it. You wont get the actual feel of the game against bots or in training mode. After you know what you dont know, you can go back and learn it. But most casuals have dropped off before this point anyways.

    Parries seems like a fun idea on paper but it turns the game into a 50/50 mess filled with OS.
