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

SSBB, dont talk wet

i have played that game online and won just by bashing the butoms, i could do all types of combos.






Around the Network

Virtua Fighter, Street Fighter and Smash Bros.

I don't like tekken as much anymore (2 was my favourite), it got really cheap after that and for those who say Tekken requires as much skill as VF or Street Fighter play someone who's good at either of those 2 series and you'll see skill is more then spamming the same 4 combo's repeatedly. I also find very few people step outside of the uber cheap/overpowered fighters in Tekken at the arcade. That drains the fun because either:

a) You always get done in for not using a similarly cheap character

OR

b) you completely obliterate them because you've played long enough to know what 3 or 4 combo's every person that users that character will use and you know how to counter them.



Mortal Kombat, you need to know a combination to do the moves, if you just button bash with it you will die because you character will just do some weak punches and kicks



Tekken

ssmb is all luck... more like who gets the super item before others or is in the right place at the right time.

Surely its Tekken. Some of those combos require 37 button presses! 37! I could win on super smash brothers with my eyes closed, one hand tied behind my back and my pants down to my ankles



I hope my 360 doesn't RRoD

Super Smash Bros Brawl requires the highest degree of Skill AND Strategy. Melee was good too, but the character balance was too out of whack. Brawl isn't absolutely perfectly balanced, but considering the sheer number of characters, they're as perfect as you could possibly ask for.

People choosing Brawl don't know WTF they're talking about. Brawl isn't even a true fighting game -- it's a party game with some things in it that resemble a fighting game. There aren't even any true combos. Any idiot can pick this game up and put up a fight. The learning curve for this game is a strait line. But, given the nature of this site, I'm not suprised people are putting above games far better than it.

VF probably is the hardest out of the 3D fighters, and KOF out of the 2D fighters.

We can't help you suck at the game. I'm pretty sure I can beat you anytime with one hand tied behind my back.

It's a game where characters are placed on a stage with the sole objective being to beat the crap out of each other.  It's a fighting game.  Just because it's not a complex fighting game doesn't mean it doesn't take skill.  You take a new guy and put him in front of someone who's played a few matches (who knows how to dodge roll, and is somewhat familiar with his character), there is no competition.

And fights between two highly-skilled players (or players of equal level) can be something to behold.

 

Brawl wins by a long shot, though, to be fair, I haven't played VF5 or much of 4.



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