Forums - Gaming Discussion - which fighting game takes the most skill?

Mario's utilt, dsmash, upair, dair, nair and usmash are good for stringing combos
Mario can dthrow to up air chase
Mario can use his cape as an opening
His dair is good for poking shields and approaching ue to it's multihit properties
Spacing his bairs works as an approach
Shorthop nair is a good albeit predictable approach as well
and he has good KO power in the form of his fsmash, usmash and FLUDD to recovering opponents.

If you're going to flame low tier characters you don't even play at least get their info right, Riot ;)

Why are we talking about low-tier garbage such as Ike and Mario? On top of that, you mention items as an approach... No one plays with items and no one cares what you can do with items.

If you want to talk anout approaching, at least know what you're talking about. What GOOD Ike is going to spam their fsmash like you're suggesting? Mario doesn't have an approach against Ike. Ike will out range and out prioritize anything Mario throws at him. Ike's Fsmash is highly punishable. A good Ike will just use his jab and aerials, which can shut down any approach MArio has. Mario would need to use his Fire Balls and force Ike to approach him, and then punish him from there. Furthermore, Mario has no moves that are safe against someone shielding. Mario has no safe approach.

He's reduced to camping with Fire Balls, and the match is just trading hits. That's lame, IMO.

No combos=fail. It breaks the entire game and turns into a camp fest.

 

1. I do know what I'm talking about--I Brawl for at least a good hour every day.

2. I didn't say Ike would spam anything--you used that word, and of course that would be easily counterable.

3. Lots of people play with items, but it really doesn't matter as that was only one bullet point.

4. I could come up with a much bigger list of things he could do, but I don't have time right now.

5. Ike is actually HIGH-tier. Here's a match between him and 'mid-tier' Link

 

Tell me there's no skill in that match.



Could I trouble you for some maple syrup to go with the plate of roffles you just served up?

This is HUGE in my opinion.

The first time I dueled Shea, we broke even but she used the cape constantly and I didn't use it at all.  It felt like an uphill battle all the way.  These days I'm really playing up the cape and Mario is much easier to use.  I slaughtered iclim4's Toon Link thanks mostly to the cape (Riot might remember that Brawl).

I laugh at the people that think SSBB is anywhere close to taking the most skill as a fighting game.

1. VF
2. SF (3rd strike)
3. Tekken
4. GG
5. Melty blood

Ironically the bottom listing are these games

Soul Calibur
DOA
SSB (brawl is the worst in terms of depth of the entire franchise)

I find it that the simpler and more user friendly a game is, the more popular it is.



mortal kombat series up to mk trilogy. to get the kombos is hard to do and takes kill to do it. not to mention speed at the execution of the moves. i have played mk 2 alot if u havnt noticed. button mashing is death in mk. ive beaten tekken 2 the first time i played it by button mashing. i have a video of me and a buddy playing mk2 on the snes and it was one of thos matches everyone would be like wow.

I'm fairly sure he is, anyway--he should be.  His side-A does almost 30%, all of his attacks are very high-powered, he has major super-frames for many attacks...and yet he still moves at a decent speed

Basically, he's got the power of a heavy character with the speed of a middleweight.

Mortal Kombat - damn fatalities are like a gang handshake they're so complicated

Ah Mortal Kombat... I remember winning matches by sweeping over and over or jump kicking over and over.

MK2 was just silly.  I liked using everyone (much like SSB) so I used Shang Tsung and memorized everyone's moves.  ^_^
