Woolie explained it in a video, it's because their parents bought games that multiple people could play at once. There's no way you'd ever finish an rpg or something when ladeshqua, jerouma, shashaququ, and jamslamal want to play too.
>>
>>324227507
Because its not the reason. Fighting games are like a conversation between the two people playing. Reads, and reactions are what make it fun, additional barriers to it such as combos are what make it something to put time into.

anime is also deeply integrated into fighting games, which also makes them more popular with blacks. other competitive games like CS Go dont have anime in it

>>324224682

It had a massive ad campaign towards inner city people.
>>
>>324223498

In actuality?

Because a lot of FGC people didn't grow up with much money and usually had siblings, so when parents got them a game, it had to be one that could be played together.

Fighting games was one of those, and had the added benefit of a lot of replayability. There was also the fact that back then we had arcades, which means you could play for just quarters.
>>
>>324228252
>we had arcades
This. A fucking arcade on the weekends was the best thing to do with friends. Better yet, any NYfags here? I remember when my brother would go to XS, I think it was and play some of the games there. This was back in '99-2000. You didn't truly live a gaming experience unless you played in arcades. Back in summer camp we'd go to Funtime USA and play the games there. They had Silent Hill, The X-Men arcade game, Tekken, I believe Time Crisis, to name a few. It was amazing. 2001 was the last time I went there, I don't know if it was still around.

If you didn't have money for the arcade, the ballpit and slide was just as fun, and the carousal, too.

On topic, if black peeps like fighting games then the games must be like football or basketball in some way, and not like hockey. Due to demographics.

Its known that black people love japshit and other asian fuckeries.

They love kung fu flicks and shit. Wu Tang Clan is pretty much that fusion between black and asian influence.
Its no surprise that the same people enjoy games that got all those elements in them.

And its not just black people in america, I've noticed that over here in europe many minorities both white and brown enjoy their fighting games and kung fu shit.

I think you give him too little credit, plus part of the reason for him taking up SFV in the first place is the notion that he's a big fish in a small pond. I respect his willingness to venture out into other fields and see how far he can go. It's going to be interesting.

That's how I feel about it too, I hate MK and Skullgirls as much as you do, but I'm not going to deny him his accomplishments. I mean shit, it's not like Perfect Legend was a no-name. I can't imagine that people aren't looking forward to whether or not he'll sink or swim. Do I think he'll just storm his way to EVO Top 8 with no resistance? Fuck no.

BB is decent, yeah, but I'm not the biggest anime fighter fan so I can't really be unbiased.

People always say MOBAs aren't complex, but that's just flat out false. They ARE complex, especially in DotA 2's case. Making them simpler would actually be an improvement. Adding more shit to a game doesn't necessarily make the game better. The average fighting game is much easier to pick up than the average moba. Mobas have an crapload of information to injest just for you to even begin playing the game, it's a lot more difficult to pick up and play League or Dota and enjoy them earlier, not to mention smurfs that run around and basically destroy the game for new players. Not to mention that in League's case it relies on constant, forced changes to keep the game "interesting", meaning that metagames can't form naturally the way they do in fighters.
>>
>>324242004
I wouldn't call a few easily understandable 'balance' (read; game ruining) changes like what those faggots do to league of legends every other month qualifies as complexity though, it seems more like changes under the guise of complexity and depth to keep the game fresh, which seems to work for fucking casuals.

Maybe if you have no concept of videogame mechanics it could come off as complex, but it's just a bunch of simple as fuck concepts that lead to a 20-60 minute long shitfest of a game that's for some reason taking the world by storm.

Meanwhile you have fighting games that as you mention are easy to pick up and play, but the depth and the complexity associated with multiple mechanics often running together makes it much harder to penetrate at a deeper level.

Like, assfaggots players wouldn't understand a thing about frame data and actual complex shit, they just play their dumbed down 1 character controlled 5 to a team RTS knockoff garbage.

blacks are usually poor and can't afford too many video games. and fighting games have a FUCKTON of replay value and they get emotinally attached to it. fighting games are the sort of thing you can play for YEARS if you have friends and family with a common interest in it. i understand what it's like because in my childhood i grew up poor around a bunch of hicks/trailer trash which is the closest thing a white person can come to being black

>it seems more like changes under the guise of complexity and depth to keep the game fresh
That's partially what I'm getting at. The game is complex by the textbook definition of the word. There are A LOT of intricacies in MOBAs. Characters, items, random ability interactions, objectives, etc. That does not make them more interesting or dynamic, it just means there's a lot of oftentimes esoteric shit to learn. Mind you, I hate MOBAs, I just don't like blatant falsehoods. It'd be like saying "Fighting games are shit because it's all about memorizing combos", that's flat out fucking wrong. I mean, you're fine to think that fighting games are shit, but your lack of understanding or knowledge of them does not make that the case.

Also frames are not a difficult concept to understand, but they ad a great deal of nuance to the game. Fighters ultimately boil down to controlling space and knocking out the opponent, but there is so much more under that shell, we both know it.
