I tried. I tried more than I ever have with any game or series of games, before or since, to get into the Sega fighting games. Put good time into some versions on both arcade and console. Even bought VF 3 and 4. Nope. Not for me.
They mostly got good reviews, and I had friends that were into them ( all dead now ), so I kept trying/playing them. I have serious doubt there's ever going to be a FMM sequel, but who knows for sure right?
Too me Virtua fighter series is harder to get into until you start understanding mechanics is when it gets fun to me I mean ^^
I game on all consoles and PC
