Wanna start getting into fighters for fun.
Which game (for PC) do you recommend and how do I git gud? I wanna kick ass.
>>
If you wanna be a real big dick G, then start with the one you posted. Otherwise learning SF IV will teach you the basics.
>>
>>276915257
This. Start with KOF 13 if you want a challenge.

Skullgirls has probably the best tutorial of any fighting game & SFIV's character challenges should help you as well
>>
>>276915101
Get Ultra Street Fighter 4. best you can get for PC right now. On sale as well.
Then - Skullgirls. It's damn good.
Next is MK9, then BlazBlue recent PC port (it has good SP, but online wise it has always on mic).
Main problem with all fighting games on PC - is small online pool of players. So prepare to get your ass kicked, cause it'll be hard to find same level opponents online.
No idea about KoF
>>
>Wanna start getting into fighters for fun.
>I wanna kick ass

Pick one. Also if you get one game and you practice one game, you only get good on that game. You won't get universally good. Get USF4 since footsie fighter is best for newfags; go full grappler if you wanna go as homosexual as possible.

Don't go near a KOF. I don't want faggots on my game
>>
Go USF4. Read some online guides, pick a main and prepare for ass beating.
>>
Mortal Kombat 1,2,3 abandonware.
Dos Box em.
>>
>>276915101
Don't listen to anyone. They're all dumb. Here's what you do OP:
Get USF4 and mess around with it
Then pick up an upcoming fighter (MKX, SFV, etc.) when it comes out learn it as everyone else does.
The most important thing about a fighter is to learn it as its new
>>
KoF is dead as fuck unless you're a spic who lives in Mexico.

Just grab USF4.
>>
>>276918312

This is retarded.

You're not going to be learning alongside everybody else just because a fighter is new. You need to learn technique, which takes a long time to develop. The only difference is there will be more shitters on a new release who are breaking in. You will still get your shit stomped by the core player-base.

Get SF4.
>>
>>276918312
Also OP, get fightcade on try some classics while waiting for the new games. Do not play a fighter that has a small, but strong online player base until you're very confident. (Skullgirls, SSF2THD, Project M, 3SO)
I'd recommend getting KOF 98 UM FE on steam and Smash Wii U as well
>>
>>276918526
All he needs to get into a new fighter is fundamentals. Then he can start understanding the systems of a certain game while it's still fresh and there are plenty of shitters like him
>>
>>276915101
Skullgirls and Divekick if you are realy new. KOF13 may be to hard but is awesome.
Avoid sf4 if you only gonna do random rank matches.
>>
>>276918615

No.

Let's use SFV as the example.

1 year+ (until it comes out) of SFIV leading up to it is going to have a MASSIVE difference than just waiting for SFV.

I mean, fuck, I can't stress the word MASSIVE enough.

It's not because it will be a similar game either.
>>
>>276918710
this is the correct answer op. The awesome skullgirls tutorials will teach you all the fundamentals like spacing, footsies, mixups, hit confirming, etc

MK9 and Injustice are both on PC and are very accessible to beginners, they would make for a pretty decent starting point for the genre. Stuff like KoF and Guilty Gear are fun once you are good but if you are really new to fighting games chances are you'll get frustrated and quit before ever reaching the skill level where it becomes enjoyable.

I say try something like Street Fighter or Injustice to get a hang of the fundamentals then branch off from there.

You will not git gud on PC. Your only option on PC is USF4 and the netcode is completely fucked, so you'll have to go to locals just to practice. Considering you haven't a clue on where to get started, going straight to locals is probably a bad idea.

Injustice doesn't have a block button.

I do agree though it's shit.

maybe unlike you op has friends to play with. playing any fighter online sucks.

I have plenty of friends and go to tournaments, but PC does not have fighting games. If OP had friends into fighting games, he wouldn't be asking /v/ for advice.

What are you talking about you nigger.

GGPO has some of the best netcode for any game ever. It has the most lagless fightan in the world outside of local.

I can legit play against some Americans with 0 frames of lag and I'm Australian.

Street Fighter. Pick Ryu. It helps if you have friends that also want to get into them, playing against people with higher skill levels constantly will kill you. I wouldn't recommend going online until you can beat arcade in hardest.

fighting games are tough man, hope you have fun.

This is a setting you can adjust. Lowering delay results in more rollbacks and jittery play.
And you have it backwards, the whole point of rollback is to make games which weren't' designed to be played online more playable. In contrast, delay works fine if your game is designed with certain leniencies to make it less noticeable, such as in BB.

And this is why you will always be shit at fighting games . You're too stupid and/or lazy to even set them up properly, let alone play them properly.
>>
>>276915101
King of Fighters 13 is pretty fucking cool but you should start off with either Street Fighter 4 or Skullgirls, SF4 is the axis around which other games turns and Skullgirls has an extremely robust tutorial that will teach you everything from the absolute basics to more advanced stuff.

Be warned though, if you hop onto online multiplayer you're probably going to endure a lot of ass kicking. It's all part of the learning process though, and as long as you can learn something from each loss you'll eventually start kicking ass in return.

The frame delay on PS3 compared to 360 is debatable in certain cases.

Some titles have the same 2F delay in arcades, so the 360 version responds a bit differently.
In games like MvC it doesn't really matter, since there is no arcade equivalent, so 360 is the standard.

This is thought to be because the 360 versions do not have vsync enabled, which also can cause some inconsistent timing. I could not confirm that, however.

Games where this difference was present have all been on the Taito Type X2.
I'd be interested to see a comparison between GG Xrd on Ringedge 2 vs PS3/PS4 to see if it's an actual limitation or intentional.
>>
>>276921816

I'm not >>276920617, brother. Hopefully he replies.
>>
>>276921823
Arcade versions are always vsynced. Which creates other problems like in the case of Blazblue on PC/360 running at 60 fps when the arcade.ps3 versions run at 57 FPS. Most games perform arcade perfect on PS3 because the PS3 can do proper vsync and the 360 cannot. Capcom games are the exception because they are horribly coded.

Arcade setups (Naomi I/II and Taito Type X2) both have 2F delay as well.

You've actually been doing it wrong this whole time.

In case you plan on saying it is because of DCEmu, I happen to have a physical copy of Naomi II GGAC and have the same results.

Couldn't say if CPS3 has the same thing or not, but this is why console sticks are compared to a known lagless reference and not the absolute frames.

Caused by vsync, which you have on with emulators. The emulator takes an additional 2 frames to process inputs. DCEmu is a much better emulator than FBA as well.

Others have recommended good games but let me tell you something about gitting good.
Pick one character and learn the fundamentals, like footsies, spacing, hit-confirms and so forth.. Once you know the funamentals, then you move one to the character specific traits.
The good thing about fundamentals is that they're transferable to any other fighting game as long as you know what to do.
A lot of people skip on fundamentals and end up bitching about shit they can;t do.

OP should just buy XRD and flail around aimlessly trying to learn how the fuck Sol works.

Dunno, it was the best selling and critically acclaimed.

You will get literally raped to death in every fighting game if you are new to the genre. There are actually more low-mid tier player lobbies than high tier.

Dead if you mean not full of scrubs giving a fuck about an epeen rank.

I play every day with americans and it is fine, even a friend from SA is relatively playable in 5 delay.
Skullgirls allows you to set up the delay for yourself while also giving a suggested delay and displaying ping in raw numbers with colour code.

Don't bother. If the OP isn't complete retarded he'll opt for USF4. Otherwise he'll go Skullgirls, play for a week, jerk off, and then quit because it's dead and MvC play style is shit.

Not really, at least if you are not into competitive online. You can more or less learn your way around with arcade mode and have fun.
Can't say much about online.

>>276927821
Hmm, It seems pretty execution heavy with the long combos. I'm barely get around in sf4 but I do have an itch for a fighting game so i don't know.
>>
>>276927976
I've only messed around with it for an hour, and I could do 8-9 hit combos with L-M-H chains.
Supers are also single motion, and standing 360s are much easier to do than in other games.
>>
>>276927976
Execution isn't as strict in SG as SF, and most moves link or cancel directly into most others fairly easily. As far as I'm aware one frame links aren't really a thing in SG either (whereas in SF most characters have one or two super important 1F Links to learn).
>>
Kof has moremxomplexity and depth than street fighter ever will.
That's why its not as popular.
I was a sf fag until I got introduced to kof 97. The kof 98 came out and blewmwvery fighter out of the water.

Sf is still popular because its simple and get complex to a certain degree.
But once you get into kof, you never get fully re-invested into sf. Its just a step backwards.

I'm talking world wide. Op proly resides in the us, and if he's looking for longevity, he should stick with sf. But if hes looking for a great fighter, go the kof route.

-Also, didn't snk say they never sold a kof cabinet to mexico? Meaning they're all botleg/pirated version of the game?

Skullgirls tutorial is invaluable to anyone who is just getting in to fighting games. All the characters are unique as well as fun to play as and the game is enjoyable at both low and high skill levels.

because initially a bunch of people play

then a large chunk move on to the next new game while the people who stay get really good

then there's a huge power gap between new players and the old ones which demotivates a lot of them

then most of the old players leave because ded game

all you have left after that is a small group of autists

People reccomend SG to people super new to the genre because of it's better-than-average tutorial a lot but it's actually a fairly difficult game to get into. Fast paced resets/ridiculously gimmicky mixup potential with some characters ontop of assists means as a beginner, you really end up struggling to ever get yourself out of mixup/reset hell versus good players.

Uneven ground led to various hitbox problems causing attacks to whiff mid combo or become unpunishable.

Completely unbalanced, Jin was completely broken JFLS was a launcher that was unavoidable/unblockable for the vast majority of the cast, it made the game unplayable.

Movment was slow and clunky, side walk was implemented horribly and got in the way of trying to do other stuff

Infinite hit combos/juggles, the game was full of them.

Glitches everywhare, the game was blatantly unfinished and very glitchy, you could fall through the stages into the ether and go on forever, hit people in the crowd outside of the stage all sorts of stupid shit.

Also the last boss was Heihachi in a diaper, no one wanted to see that.

>>276919553
What? Netcode's an issue if you play ranked for too long, 'cause the way Steamworks operates will lead to the game DDoSing itself. Same thing happens in KoF98UM. Restart the game every 4 - 5 ranked matches, or just stick to endless.
