Th-there's still story mode, r-right?
Actually you're in the perfect place, /v/ is absolutely shit at fighting games.
If you're shit at fighting games you can do the following:
-fuck around in tekken endless fight mode or whatever it's called, that never gets old
-become a mortal kombat fan, 90% of those games is about the SP
-become a weaboo and play BB and P4A, those have meaty sp modes
-become a smashfag (no brainer, this is the most common solution)
I've had Tekken Tag Tournament 2 sitting on my shelf for quite a while. I never really liked fighting games.
Is it any good? Can I play without a stick?
> Never played fighting games before
> Destroy story mode
> go online
> destroy first three opponents
> close fourth game
> winning streak continues
> get bored of winning
> fighting games
If you actually like fighters, you will git gud.
It's incredibly satisfying to be that guy punishing people for 80% health.
So many good fighters out right now, and more good ones coming out.

Gotten good at street fighter since then but holy fuck was that an eye opener
It is hard to balance the skill levels. I had a friend once that I played fighting games with every other day. We did this for a few months, without any significant solo training. Good times... Your mistake was solo training. Never solo train.
Quite the opposite for me
>play counterstrikeand wow as a kid
>always thought fighting games were dumb masher games
>pirate sf4 on pc to play local mp with a friend while smoking weed
>both buy game a few weeks later and go online
>place top 32 Evo last year
Solo training makes shit so much easier to figure out. You can practice one thing non stop, whereas if you're playing against someone then you have to play according to the situation not according to what you wanna practice.
>Street Fighter 4 on sale on Steam about a year ago for 5 bucks
>Why the hell not, I've got a controller so it won't be unbearable to play
>Breeze through arcade
>Time for some online I guess!
>Get my shit handed to me over and over and over again
>Play one game, get the guy down to fuck all health
>I FINALLY GOT THIS ONE!
>He was toying with me and hands me my shit right back
>tfw my reaction time is so bad that I can't handle 2D fighters
I'm OK at 3D fighters (I guess they're slower?) but holy shit any 2D fighter requires you to notice every tiny frame and react accordingly else you're dead.
>have sucked at fighting games since a young age
>friend convinces me to learn sf4
>play with him, actually begin to understand the mechanics of the game
>get to the point where i can beat him 50/50
>try playing randoms on line
>get my shit handed to me
>almost a year later he's still the only one i can play against and have a chance of winning
Is Killer Instinct on the X-bone worth it for all the characters?
I've played it a few times with the characters you get free but don't really find any appeal when I have no idea what some of the other characters can do without playing as them.
honestly how can people not be at least half decent on fightan games? Just learn 2-3 combos and I guarantee you wont get rekt over and over.

Probably my first "git gud" moment in video games.
>Used to go to mini market near my house to play MvC2

>Fast forward 2 years
>Jew temple built nearby
>Ass loads of Jews always hogging the arcade
>Get pissed off one day and butt into this fat Jews single player match
>Insert my coin and challenge him
>Completely devastate his ass as he resorts to the same techniques
>His friends try to beat me
>They don't even get close
>Continue to do this until they get so annoyed that they decide to play the racing arcade nearby until I'm done playing
MvC2 was my game.
Always used Gambit, Cable, and BB hood.
pretty much this
/v/ calls itself good, but apparently when they go against a "cheap" strategy or see someone in a competitive scene use a "cheap" strategy (which is a broad fucking definition), they fucking cry and freak out and claim they didn't deserve that win.
/v/ is the very definition of scrub.
>Be great offline, surprisingly good online
>Brother asks to play against me
>Figure why the fuck not
>I actually try to beat him
>He literally mashes buttons
I hate when people do that shit. I got SF4 a couple months back in anticipation of Ultra. I've always been bad at SF, except for 2, but I like fighting games in general and decided I wanted to get decent at 4.
Anyway, I hate when people play like faggots. Like, they'll beat you handedly twice and then spend the 3rd round jumping around like idiots or sitting in the corner crouch blocking. Fuck you, I know you're better than me and neither of us are getting anything out of drawing the last match out.
If my friend also owns the game, I expect solo training to be happening between both of us. Even if I don't own a game, I expect the owner of the game to have more experience anyway. If I cared about getting better, I'd buy my own copy. If either of us aren't having fun, we can play game we both don't know, or both know well.
>be playing BB:CS with my bros
>once in a while, win by astral finish
>all dem rage tears
For those who didn't play BB, astral finish requirements are a pain in the ass.
