      Genuinely wish this was banned because otherwise what's the fricking point in them at all if your just gona watch someone like jim sterling stream a game and talk shit during it.

      It's odd how this is allowed with games but if you do the exact same thing with a movie you get taken down

        Because watching someone silently stare while a movie plays provides roughly the same experience as watching that movie, whereas watching someone play a game does not provide the same experience as playing the game yourself, unless it's a PS5 exclusive

          If they watch someone play Tomb Raider then they'll never play it themselves because their too moronic to. In their minds because they watched moron-A stream it then logically they themselves have played/completed it

              Comparing steam numbers between old as frick games and modern ones is moronic. SF 6 is 14x larger than SF 4 on steam despite selling much worse. The fact is that pc and digital are more popular now. You have to compare numbers to contemporary games like strive and SF 6. It sits closer to strive which is niche as frick and well under SF 6 which is itself not breaking any sales records, this is underwhelming for what many considered the new king of the fgc.

              sf6 cucks already in panic mode because their game didn't even last 6 months

          nah he's right, regardless of how you feel about SF4 or tekken or w/e. no one cared about anything that wasn't marvel 3 or SF4. like tekken was the same stage as soul calibur and guilty gear. i vivedly remember the biggest tournament in my country having not enough people in tag 2 to fill a top 8. Tekken 7 succeeded because SF5 sucked hard at launch. the same with guilty gear or any other fg that is doing well now. i disagree that SF6 is good. but SF6 unlike 5 has a good perception. i don't think tekken 8 will die as it actually has an audience now. but he's right about the 360 era.

              my point was about how t7 only succeeded based on SF5 sucking as before that no one played tekken. game was dead af. tekken has an audience now due to 7 so i don't see tekken being in that boat ever again. but regarding what tekken was like in 2008-2017 he was right.

                Tekkens popularity is artificial. Succeeding off another games failure doesn't result in sustainable success. People either think your game is fun or they don't. Tekken wasn't a niche undescovered IP it was a former household name that had the audience and engagement levels it deserved. It is no better than soul calibur and will return to SC levels in time.

You can look at Evo attendance numbers for t7 spike and continue to grow after SFV flopped, you can also see interviews from harada himself talking about an unprecedented, unexpected second wind for t7 that extended support and dlc funding for way longer than planned

                except it was released on PS3/360 and PSP, so if you count the 3DS version of SF4 as separate then you must also count the PSP version of 6 as separate.

You are also putting arbitrary rules around what counts and does not, alternate versions of sf4 don't count but psp variants of Tekken do and even when you cope with your arbitrary rules SF 4 still sold more than it's contemporary competition with Tekken 6.

                This argument is not about arbitrary historical sales in the 90s and even in that case street fighter 2 is the undesputed king. We are discussing the trajectory of SF and Tekken during the PS4 era and how it flipped suddenly and artificially because of SF Vs failure. You are now arguing a completely irrelevant point about game sales in 1995 because you have lost the argument and even your new irrelevant point is false.

                Tekken was a brand, it doesn't need other things to success. Tag1 and Tk4 flopped basically sale-wise, but then they made a comeback with tk5
                It happens, franchises have ups and downs.
                Gow(god of war) was dead and then they revived it with Gow 2018

                Sf6 and Tk8 are going to(probably) succeed together, even though neither will do amazing and won't come close to mk.

                Within a single sentence you have a moronic contradiction, it doesn't need more than a brand to succeed yet it flops constantly? The only reason Tekken 5 sold well was because 50% of its sales came from the psp, a platform starved for content at a time when it was novel to have a handheld fighting game, this market immediately evaporated. Tekken had been in decline for decades.

                6 million is a huge decline from the real peak with Tekken 3. When you account for the temporary psp bump the series tracks in a diagonal line down, often cratering while all spinoffs flopped. Tekken 7 was a complete revival.

                After Tekken 3 every single Tekken game has sold less besides 5 due to a psp bump, every spin off sold significantly less and the overall trend was down. It was a series in decline while SF 4 revived the fighting game genre, this is the point. Then you can make up your own moronic conclusions as to why this suddenly flipped despite no major changes in strategy or content on tekkens side and a complete collapse on street fighters side.

                What goalposts? You said that what changed the game were sf5 and tk7, that isn't true. Tekken as a series had higher sales than SF before any of that, i didn't even speak of tk6, you brought it up. And tk6 didn't sell like shit, 3.5m for a single release with 0 support after release is good enough. Are you dumb or something?

          Where in my post did I ever say Tekken was a good game or that SF was the only good FG? The point is that Tekken in particular is shit, it's worse than it's own sister series and is overrated because it was the default casual option for a whole console generation of newcomers. It also attracted a lot of homeless SF players who were lied to and told it was the most complex fighting game only to find a spammy frame data memorisation challenge.

          When the quality is low you can't expect people to want to play another after 7, Tekken 8 failing to meet sales expectations is an obvious outcome.

              Comparing steam numbers between old as frick games and modern ones is moronic. SF 6 is 14x larger than SF 4 on steam despite selling much worse. The fact is that pc and digital are more popular now. You have to compare numbers to contemporary games like strive and SF 6. It sits closer to strive which is niche as frick and well under SF 6 which is itself not breaking any sales records, this is underwhelming for what many considered the new king of the fgc.

Even the "discord" fighters usually have a few people that are always online to play.

                first one was 7 actually lol. i didn't like it but it started to get huge in my country and the competition was free as frick, a local would have 80 or so people and top 3 would get paid. after s3 i stopped playing t7. i liked some stuff about it but i hated alot of the other aspect. one of the older guys i grinded 7 with invited me to play tag 1 at a house session and i was glued to it. the game was just everything i wanted tekken to be. more focused on the movement and neutral without all the knowledge checks required before you actually play the game. it was the super turbo of tekken. after playing ALOT of tag 1 and some DR with mates offline i got realllyyyy dissillusioned with the state of modern tekken. but yea i played much more tag 1 than DR. DR is a more balanced game and still a really fun tekken. but tag 1 is my goat.

If I wanted to spend $120+ to play against maybe 10 people, I would get into obscure tabletop wargames like Malifaux or Sorcery. What a fricking scam.

          Failure is relative, Tekken 6 had shit sales compared to its prior peak, it's not like extended support and dlc was common in the PS1-2 era when they were hitting 9 mil. SF 5 is considered a failure despite selling 7 million copies, this is because it was a massive drop off from prior entries and the majority of those sales were at a discount price and over an extended period of time.

                SF 6 is selling fine, not amazing but it's on track to hit over 7 million lifetime. Tekken 8 will be a failure if it fails to hit 5 million which it might since it's tracking well below SF6 on engagement and hype. Going from 10 mil to 5 is a massive falloff and makes further investment difficult. There will undoubtedly be a Tekken 9 but if that also performs worse than 8 it will be in the same position as soul calibur.

          I never said it was a good fighting game at the end of all that grinding and memorisation. It just resembles one in a way 99% of Tekken doesn't.

          No tekken at the end is this

    I've always tried to become very good in StarCraft 2. Anytime I play I improve a lot, so what's the problem?

    It feels like job, if you want to get above diamond, you need to learn everything about the game, the counters, the rock/paper/scissor, the meta strategies, become very good at macro, management, territory control, micro and so on.

    You see, it's more fun to watch people playing the game while having some narrator giving the matches some flavor.

    I don't watch people play though, but if you watch a few games you will feel that you need to play as good as the people you are watching. The people that you are watching, though, literally play the game as a job. Anything less, though, feels like you are playing "wrong", so the game stop to being fun and it becomes a job.

    Blizzard making SC2 focused on e-sport was a big mistake.

    Launch is so important for fighting games, surprised Bandai Namco fricked up so badly with Tekken 8

      They only fricked up with the online crashes, which is a big deal don't get me wrong. But a lot of casuals are just going to play the single player and quit
      it's very unfortunate, it could get really big if the frick up didn't happen, but let's not blow it out of proportions

        That's good news. All the videos I could find had her wearing the same dress with shorts underneath so I thought there was no hope for me.

    Is Kuma not able to stay on the floor and keep clawing without getting up anymore? After one swipe I automatically get up now. I want to meme but seems they removed it?

    so there are only steamgays playing this game, while snoygays/xboxgays just watch it it totally makes sense.

      They have a reputation for "playing" moviegames so it makes sense they'd rather watch than play

    i barley followed the game but it seems pretty censored. i don't remember seeing a single female charter with noticeable cleavage or sideboob/underboob but literally every male character is a shirtless buff guy.

    >surprised everyone dropped the game so quickly

    what these people can't seem to understand:
    >80% of people who actually like fighting games are still playing games from like 2017
    >nobody wants to waste another 500hrs learning how to play the latest fighting game
    >not even pro fighting game players like having to do that shit every time a new game releases, so they stick with games they know
    >getting assraped in 5 secconds 95% of pvp matches is not fun to new players
    >games should have a single player option

    70 bucks for a fighting game is a tad steep for me lmao, since I'm not one of those people that play that shit every single hour of every single day.

    >no real content outside of throwing yourself into the ranked mines
    fightans would be popular if they were priced accordingly, if this game was 20$ they would have 10x more people buying and playing just to try it out and have fun fricking around checking the characters moves and supers and shit

      Yeah but anon that's Namcos problem now ever since they became buddy buddy with capcom. It's no longer about making good games and keeping the community that's been with you for years happy.
      It's now about how much money they can screw out of you because they think you the customer are stupid and should pay 5.99 for armour king or anna etc

    Fighting games have no content if you aren't interested in self improving and competing you don't have any real purpose in playing a fighting game for more than a few hours
