What's new

What other fighting games do people play?

It's been over a year and I played MK11 pretty much every other day, I'm burnt out for now but do love fighting games.
IJ2 only has a small community left so I find myself bring and adopting my MK play style to Tekken... after a few trail and errors I got the hang of it. What do other people play when their burnt

Your mothers main.
Only played a MK11 a handful of times in the last year but picked up KI and it is pretty fun for a 7 year old game. Most interested in the new GG with rollback I am really excited for that.
 
1000000% feel that. No matter what FG I play I consistently burn out and have to take a long break away from the game before I can dive back in.

Battle For The Grid is my currently favorite non-NRS fighter. Im absolutely rubbish at it, but it's so much fun.

Unfortunately I "permanently burned out" on a bunch of other FG's due to netcode, which used to be great alternatives when I wasn't feeling MK. DBFZ and DoA6 were particularly painful to drop after sinking so many hours into them. I just can't deal with delay netcode anymore. I bought GBVS, played one game online, and have never touched it since. Im super excited for GG Strive to finally give me another great rollback FG to munch on.

I play some I2 very sparsely, but always enjoy it. Injustice 2 has some extremely frustrating matches but will always hold up well imo

Only NRS games, mainly MK though. I bought Samsho week after release(the first one) and couldn't find any players so I dropped it. I bought SFV and Tekken 7 because they were on huge sale. I was about to get into Tekken and then my PS4 broke. Bought it again few months later on PC and played for 2h. I just can't get into anything except MK. And I play Injustice just because majority of MK players pick it up and it's the main game for couple of months at least. Then just wait for next MK.

oh my, damn I love the fighting games genre, so, I try to test and experiment all of them, only for fun, not aiming to have the same skill level on all of them, haha :D

MK games (of course!!), the new Killer Instinct, Tekken 7, DOA 5 and 6, KOF 14, Injustice 1 and 2, Street Fighter 4 and 5 and Soul Calibur 6 .... but only MK in daily basis, the rest, just a few minutes or hours for month :p

I bounce around and dabble in a lot for various reasons. A lot of time I don't even get into playing people like with KOF14 and Undernight where I basically just sit around and do combos for an hour or two just because.

There are a lot of games I like and several I don't. I'll give anything a try for a min and if I like it just keep firing it up if there is time. I tend to run more into the problem of there being way too many good games and no possible way to actually play more than one or two.

If I was going to really take another game seriously and I thought the player base supported it I would pick SC6 right now. DOA6 is a serous thought if people had played it, hardcore DOA players respected it, and if performance wasn't so questionable. It's hard to keep playing something that only diehards are left playing. If I try to play SC6 online there is too high a chance I'll just run into Partywolf or end up watching Rikuto body me on his stream. I figure it's not great for randos to even be out there at this point wasting their time.

Been revisiting Tekken a bit lately. I like it a lot overall, though I'm pretty bottom feeder, and that is unlikely to change. I wish I could play more than one character, but I get so much more mixed up by crossing character inputs in Tekken than anything else like ever.

mental and fundamental
Thems Fightin' Herds, Tekken 7 (ofc), DBFZ, UMVC3, UNIST, and Guilty Gear are the non-nrs fighting games I dabble in. I had a pocket samurai showdown character when I used to go to my college's fighting game club, but I prolly forgot how to play her

I'm salty
KI, Tekken, SFV. I just started messing around with TFH, GG and Power Rangers.
I would love to play Inj 2 more one of my fav fgs

Wow, never knew about dragon ball having netcode issues... Maybe that's why I've seen a lot of youtubers drop it.
 
I played a lot of SFV and DBFZ prior to Mk 11. But now it's mostly just mk11 when I'm not playing other genres.

I'll play anything except Injustice
 
I tried to get into other games in the past but have had difficulty getting into them as I've only ever played NRS games. Killer Instinct looked awesome but the ever changing guitar hero esq combos threw me off, I'm too use to my dial-a-combo crutch I guess. I was hype for Dragon Ball Fighterz and got pretty into it for awhile but the match making was painfully slow as was the lag. But sitting there waiting up to 8 minutes to find an opponent every match got tiresome fast. Thats why I stopped playing Injustice 2 as well, as much as I love Injustice if the playerbase is so small i have to schedule specific times to play with friends than I'm not gonna bother relearning the game. Its a bummer but thats kinda my general rule with multiplayer games.

I really wanna try other fighters but they can be hard to get into coming from a strictly NRS/midway background. SF5 looks cool but seems like a mountain to climb in terms of learning. I might look into Marvel vs Capcon Infinite or the Samurai Showdown game, if the player base is there. I also worry that goin to games like marvel v capcon from MK11 will be like going from beer to crystal meth lol

Samurai Showdown is a game the people that play it love it, but the online is considered unusually bad, and the player base from the start pretty much went straight to discord matchmaking.

The netcode is actually so bad that the people playing it are now using some remote tech where they run the game on a server or something and then stream the inputs and video feed instead of counting on the actual built in netcode.

MVCI is very well liked by some, but got off to such a bad start and substandard visuals that it never made it off the launch pad.

Out of curiosity, what specifically are you comfortable with and enjoying about the games you do like to play?
