Do you even bother with old/obscure fighters anymore? there is Fightcade if you don't have buddies around but you are going to find half a dozen people tops playing anything that isn't KOF.

Seems like a bit of a waste when all you have is the AI.

The idea of old fighting games is more beautiful than the act of playing them. Works of art like The Last Blade and Garou spark something that makes me want to play these to their utmost, but when trying to do so it all seems so futile. It's like grasping at a mirage.

Fightcade can't do justice to talking shit to a friend or brother on your couch because he intentionally picked a really low tier character. That's the real tragedy of fighting games. Have you ever had success teaching someone how to play a fighting game? That's satisfying and a lot fun.

Loved playing obscure neogeo and pgm trash with friends in like 2005 and it's sad to see that high level players outright chastise people for having fun. It's like they don't want to see more people building an interest in their shitty hobby.

Pic related is a good example of what I mean. There's a bug where if you cross up you can enter the opponent hitbox/pushbox and easily crouch jab him infinitely to death. Because tourneyfags are against outright banning mechanics, this means this game has *absolutely* ZERO competitive value.

This is not at all a problem in casual couch multiplayer though, all you have to do is have a mutual formal agreement with your friend not to abuse this damned crossup bug. Just agree not to be a bitch and abstain from exploiting the system. And if your friend breaks that mutual agreement at least you can punch him in the face in real life.

The epic troll on 4chan is pretending that having friends interested in gaming, high level tourneyshit and the very same games YOU play no less is totally a common occurrence and if you don't you're a lonely loser.
It's actually rare as fuck to tick all those checkboxes, if you have friends like that you better cherish them because it's not gonna last.

Garou is a solid basic fighter with a small roster and it's gorgeous. I like the Last Blades more but it's easy to see why it's popular.

>> No.5875970

You don't need a high level tourneyshit friend, just a friend that enjoys playing fighting games and getting better at his own pace. Then both of you eventually reach the same level just by fighting each other and from there onwards slowly improve just by trying to overpower the other. You start to look for high level shit online to surprise him, then he learns a way to counter that, he tries a new character you're not used to fight against and that makes you learn a new match-up and so on.

I mean I'm never going to be anything than mediocre myself but I don't give a shit, fighting and teasing a friend is still fun as fuck.

You said it.

I'm glad you threw in that last part. It's funny, all this elitism over fighters nowadays, and you know it's all from people too young to have grown up when someone would step on your toe or elbow you in the rib standing next to you at the arcade, and use Twitch viewership as the viability metric. More nebulous still whether or not they even play these games for themselves.

most things in fighting games don't get banned unless they're flat out broken like a single character, and even then it varies between community/region and even tournament rules.
the idea is that sometimes its better to let a character stay and see if they can be beaten over time and become less of an issue.
you will however have tournaments that ban certain infinites like in LB2

also a quick search on spectral vs generation shows it was abnormally busted like hokuto no ken and banning the crossup infinite wouldn't stop the other infinites unfortunately

If you REALLY want to play a certain game with other people, you will eventually find a way.
You can start by looking around specific forums or communities online, or try to get people together on 4chan to play whatever game you wanna play.
Pic related is not obscure, but it's old, and still has a playerbase (mostly japanese and latin americans, though). There's discord servers dedicated to match-making all kind of games. You just have to look around.

>> No.5876274

The problem is trying to find people close enough to your skill level that you can improve. With games that have tiny playerbases, you're likely to end up in a situation where you're either getting pounded so quickly that you're not learning anything or you're a veteran playing against new people who can't give you a challenge.

>> No.5876276

True, I guess that can't be helped. It also probably depends on the person, though. If you get a veteran who's willing to give you constructive criticism or advice, you might be able to improve and become a worthy opponent. But yeah that depends on the other person.
Nowadays, with how most games have their own wiki, you can probably read all the technical meta beforehand, though. And then after that it's just practice.

There's an overall skillset of learning to play that translates from game to game generally speaking. So you can always play more popular games to build that up and then play whatever.

The reason why they enjoy playing it is not just for irony's sake, it's because the game has interesting mechanics for all characters and each character seems to be overtuned in a unique way that makes it interesting and still fairly competitive despite being completely broken (kind of like SSB).
