Forgot about poll and this forum is shit so I have to make new thread.
For any fighting game I've played, someone would eventually place a moratorium on using certain characters. Raiden for MK1 and Cammy for one of the earliest iterations of Street Fighter are the two I recall best. I won't lie; I was a cheap and petty bastard with characters I liked.
I started SF with Street Fighter 2. The first three characters I beat the actual game with (I think) were Honda, Chun Li, and Zangief; I eventually did beat the game with every character. (I always despised Blanca, he was the easiest to play and people would just do that stupid spinning ball trick all the time.)
I remember pissing people off when I would beat them using Dhalsim -- he looks like he should be a pushover, and you can just really embarrass someone by actually winning consistently.
I played the Marvel Superheroes version, SF3, Virtua Fighter 2 (I usually played Sarah or the drunk old man), Tekken 2+, etc. But SF2 was probably the one I was best at. there was one guy at the arcade who i did beat occasionally, but he was really good -- especially with Ryu and Ken. Just annoying... he had the super-uppercuts down perfectly.
Im sorry but arent all 2d fighting games simply played by timely situational algorithms?
I prefer turn-based to real time strategy. I find that it eliminates the twitch element and allows you to focus more purely on the strategy. Although games like Starcraft and Wargame are badass.
TBS + RPG with immersive storytelling are really my ideal kind of games.
