yes, any game at a high level requires skill
Yes but it is more repetition
Depends on the game but yeah fighting games takes WAY more skill than any eSports or shooters.
I used to play 3rd strike competitively when I was younger I got to taste that myself.
Absolutely they take skill.
The constant way people try to dismiss them is proof enough of that.
fighting games are full of elitist wankers stay away from them unless pissing around with your mates on multiplayer
yes they take skill but because of their vastly smaller player pools it is much more difficult to become a top competitor in CS / dota / LoL than in most fighting games
yep when u have to study frame data and matchups and learning combos etc.
Yes but not as much as cs go
Fighting games have been decreasing in skill floor, but the skill ceiling at a high level still remains interesting. You could say that about most genres though.
3rd strike -> SF5
Melee -> Ultimate
GGAXC -> DBZF
There is still a lot of skill involved, but often games reduce the amount of technical skill and increase leniency in timings. Not necessarily a bad thing, but some people do like technical games more. Matchups, studying frame data, and endless hours practicing combos and links are pivotal in all fighters.
not as much as cs but yea
Yes, and the pressure of figuring out the opponent is 100% on you. You'll feel most helpless if you can't counter something, so that's when you hit training mode and put hours to figure it out. .
Hardcore genre, mentally and technically that's why people are afraid of it.
If we are comparing pure individual skill in CS:GO vs FGs then you would have to concede it to FG's without a doubt. But as a game overall, CS:GO is much more difficult because of the micro AND macro aspects of the game. However, CS is an exception because I agree that FG's take way more skill than shooters in general (COD).
I played it little bit with my friends and i think it does take skill, surely.
Never played ANY fighting game, my childhood was minecraft
Every single one takes skill expect playing Eddy from Tekken
SF 3rd stricke, and KOF 2002, were amazing games, and it takes a lot of skills to master (esp KOF 2002)
