Th-there's still story mode, r-right?
There's local co op.
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)
Did I say "co op?" How embarrassing. I meant "local multiplayer"
No clue where "co op" came from.

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?

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.

Yes unless you're on 360, the 360 d-pad is atrocious.

That's because your friends are scrubs, anon.

Now it's your job to become their sensei.

Alternatively, find something else to do.
>tfw you thought you were hot shit in smash bros cause you beat your friends/siblings, entered a tournament and got raped six ways from sunday

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

>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

Dutch btw
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.

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.

Thread full of shitters
You can train, just not alone. Like, give each person 5 minutes to do whatever they want in training mode. Or fight each other in training mode.
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.

MvC2 was my game.
Always used Gambit, Cable, and BB hood.

>tfw good at fighting games
>tfw straining to hide power level in public
How do you do it /v/?
You don't hide your powerlevel in fightan. Never.

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.

what? the only place in public you'll play a fighting game is at an arcade you cheat.
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.
Oh, what I meant by "solo train" did not include instances where you both train on your own time.

For those who didn't play BB, astral finish requirements are a pain in the ass.
There are those moments in TTT2. You just keep playing against them like they know what they're doing, but you shouldn't. Just wait out and catch them, that's the only way.
