It's a good game, but it fails to be interesting to watchers.

Learning curve is hell, boring to learn alone

Nobody plays it.

Alternatives are flashier, and overall more interesting.

Is it the best fighting game out there? of course, is worth it? i'd say no.

It doesn't have a lot of explosive presentation but fuck that, it plays like butter.

I like it, I just stopped playing due to low interest. It's definitely one of the better 3D fighting games I've touched on.

Some guy at CEO likes to bring the game so I hope to meet up with him this year again and get a couple of sessions in.

VF is like the SMT of fighting games. Great games nobody gives two shits about other than a minority of loyal fans.

VF needs a spinoff ala Persona3/4, something like VF but all women and with boob physics, and tons of revealing outfits and flashy easy as fuck grameplay... yeah that would do.

They really don't. One of the best yes and its highly respected but the FGC is quicker to say ST , Guilty Gear or Tekken are the best

Hipster cred pretty much none of them play fighting games so putting one accepted as challenging as god tier will make people around here look better despite still being people who claim about shit like Ryu fireballs.

Okay kid i'm sure short hop pressure , footsies , spacing , anti airing like a boss and knowing when to escape pressure are all muscle memory despite things requiring reactions. Yep its 99% muscle memory from hd combos alone.

literal muscle memory on the defense point of view, jab antiair.

>footsies

pick one

>spacing

Roll? one of the most retarded mechanics on a DF? roll punishing gets predictable though, but kills the meta on a certain degree, specially on corner game.

It depends on the kof, but 98 and 2002 are muscle memory heavy, and KOF is a rushdown instead of footsies fighting game.
>>
>>283402430
FGC do agree that VF is a very good and balanced game. Go read up on it at Dust Loop, SRK, and other fighting game forums.

The game just is not flashy, ground in more physics. You how Gundam is called Real Robot mecha, well think of VF like that. Marvel is Super Robot.

I thought VF4 + revisions was held in higher regard? I'm always reading how VF5 simplified itself a bit

Anyways, the last 3D fighter I played was Tekken 3 on PS1. I might get the new DOA on Steam when it's cheap
>>
>>283404370
Ad populum is a horrible way to bait anon

it's like saying "i'm a fag, argue with me!"
>>
That's because /v/ and most of the fgc parrot things that make em sound hardcore. 98% never touched a VF. Btw it's not a bad game, just massively overrated and with uselessly high exec requirements.
>>
>>283404483
VF5 is the same as VF4.
VF5FS is the simplified version
>>
>>283404159
>Defense point of view
Jabbing it is still reacting and its still not muscle memory on the offenses point of view outside of few characters with optimal pressure and even then you wanna mixup it up
>KOF no footsies
Neutral itself is footsies even if its not poke based movement and spacing well looking for a opponent is the footsies of KOF
>Roll killing spacing
Its very baitable and yeah it forces you to go in harder because trying to space out someone alone is shit but it is what it is

I feel like people confuse footsies with pokes based footsies. Sometimes movement and spacing yourself constantly like in Marvel 2 and KOF is a form of footsies. Other games like SF and GG use pokes with alot of characters. Its all neutral in the end.

I really like VF, but nobody plays it, so I don't put a whole lot of time into it. Same with Xrd, I would put more time into it, but my local meet up group focuses on USF4 and Smash variants.
>>
>>283404667
Wasn't confusing footsies anon, it's just KOF footsie game is very weak and lacking because the lack of normals and command normals in general.

And reacting is still muscle memory, just saying.

>>283404921
If reacting is muscle memory you might as well say anything is muscle memory in a fighter you stupid fuck. Each time you react its in a separate situation to a different thing that requires a appropriate counter measure literally the most you can get from muscle memory.
>>
I love how VF never nerfed itself just to stay popular, it's like saying "a dead franchise is better than a shit one" I like that mentality.

I'll never stop playing VF even if I'm shit at it.
>>
>>283405242
Reacting is muscle memory because there is visual and sometimes auditive cue, is the basis of overheads for example.

KOF isn't THAT deep but it's a good game, chill anon kun.

Not him, but the guys is right.
Half of those who talk about it, never actually touched a virtua fighte before.
I can't count the number of times I read stuff like VF IS SO DEEP AND TECHNICAL" as if
technical actually means anything.

It has more than 5 hard moves, Akira's GboD being the hardest of all, but even this is easily done with practice,the hard moves are only held by top tier characters.

>>283405893
Not everything is bad about final showdown, it is an upgrade, but they let down many things that made "virtua fighter".

The ONLY thing good about it is the mechanics. It fails in almost every other way, from character design to general art direction.

The shit is just boring to look at, albeit fun and rewarding as shit to play.

Take Sarah for example, and look at how she just gets kinda drowned out by the DoA5 crew and they aren't exactly pinnacles of design, either.

That said, I still love Sarah.

ok GboD is a hard move

but akira has a faster more practical guardbreak and that move is just forward + PKG

anyone can do forward + PKG, back/forward + punch, and then a basic combo

unless you're playing it at high level, VF5FS is basically lots of low execution guesses. they took out the only hard thing you HAD to know.

VF is a good game but i hate the whole SO DEEP AND TECHNICAL routine so much

Are you talking about art direction of graphics?
DOA5 is a relatively new game whilst VF is outdated, of course they will do a better job.
>>283408576
that SO DEEP AND TECHINCAL thing is just a bunch of nonsense parroted from gaming journalists, VF5 is a somewhat easy game to play compared to Tekken.

6PKG and 2PKG aren't hard, that's right, but GboD isn't just a simple guard breaker, it rewards you with damage and you can have consequent frame advantage if you fail at 3rd input.

I disagree. The characters are less cartoony. I think Pai, Lau, Sarah, Eileen, Aoi, Taka, Vanessa and Goh are cool characters.

The problem is the lack of meat in the game's presentation, which sadly is likely to get worse with the cheapskate ways of Sammy.

What's your PSN? I must have seen you online lately since you play the game.
Maybe we can spar.

That tier list is bullshit man, get over it, probably made by some jerk at eventhubs, and if you wanna prove me that Pai and Aoi are low tier characters, just drop your PSN.

To be fair, by most fighting game standards that is a LOT of "viable" characters.

I doubt a game will ever compare to something like Soul Calibur 5 where there is only one or two characters generally considered to be unviable by most people, but even then an argument can still be made for them to some degree.

Even still, half the cast being considered "viable" is still very balanced by most fighting game standards. At least it isn't Fox vs Fox, no items, Final Destination.

Nobody plays good games. Games like Quake lose out to games like Battlefield, RTS games lose out to ASSFAGGOTS, etc, etc.

the honest answer is that i'm too casual for this game, and i expect a lot of people on here are too.
it's easy to pick up and learn the moves, but therd is something i just don't have for high-level play.

It's the Transformers Syndrome.

Everyone will say that they like the artsy, slow films with methodical pacing and 3rd dimensional characters.

But what does everyone end up seeing on the weekend with friends? What do people leave on the television when it comes on? Comic Book Movie #27. Book adaptation with RomCom elements aimed at women #35.

You have your hardcore players, your casual players, and the players who just pick up whatever is new. Casual players never touched Quake or RTSs because they were too difficult, and the ones who pick up whatever is new just leave for the newest thing. This gives only a small audience who are dedicated to the game.

Just like I said above, I've already talked about this tier list before, so I'll show you this pic here.

you're bringing up this as if you knew what you're talking about, and you say it's made by Top VF players.
So you want us to believe in a tier list made by highly skilled players who play only highly skilled players?

You think it matters to the regular VF player?

Let's see how many top tier characters made it to finals...

They mean a hell of a lot less in a game like VF than, say, a game like SF4.

3D games in general (except maybe Tekken, but I don't really consider Tekken a 3D game. More like 2.5d) are much more about the player than the character. VF is no exception. A "lower tier" can always out play a higher tier much more consistently than in a 2d game like Marvel where you just get steamrolled by a better character or shitty match up.

Therefore playing a character that suits you is generally much more important than their tier.

People in the FGC only play what's new. It doesn't matter what kind of history there is behind a game or how good people claim it is.

See:

VF
GGAC+/+R
3s
MvC2
CvS2

etc. etc. this list goes on forever. Games that are godlike, amazing, "balanced!!!!" but nobody will actually fucking play them.

The only community that said no fuck this to their new games is Smash and built a scene around Melee again. While some people will look at this as a bad thing because MUH SPONSORS ESPORTS $$$$$$$$ i think it's fucking great. If you think a game is ass don't fucking play it. This is the single worst thing about the current FGC. People sitting up saying MvC3 is complete trash but constantly play it, talk about how much they hate Blazblue/Persona and play them, talk up how much they love the old games!!! fuck off.

People try to "objectively" measure games when they want to call one of them the best, and ignore how much they actually like the games. This is stupid.

VF5 is not nearly the best fighting game, nor is it the most complex. For instance, just about every decent 2D fighter is better than VF5 and every other 3D fighter. Most of them are more complex too, sometimes vastly so. Anime games, KOF, Marvel, and so on are all much better than any Virtua Fighter game.
>>
>>283424304
isn't Dudley a good matchup for Balrog?

Anyway, I'm not saying he's odds-on favorite, I'm just saying that in any US tournament he enters, he's instantly a contender for top 3.

>>283420527

Makoto has always been considered at least A tier. Most 3S pros will tell you the tier list goes Chun, Yun, Mak (...), some might even put Makoto at #2 or #1

As for beating Chun consistently, it has always happened. Kens, Dudleys, Makotos, Yuns...Have and do beat high-level Chuns consistently. What has changed as of late is that a lot of the current best 3S players are all Makoto mains, so you're seeing a lot of her
>>
>>283424869
To be fair, Mak has some nasty option selects
>>
>>283424529
because the myth about stick being objectively better than pad is just that - a myth. It's all personal preference, and more and more people are joining the scene who started playing on console, never had that arcade experience.
>>
>>283424990
It's all about the character

Nor correct or incorrect, depends on the character, Decapre isn't execution heavy

If I see a Top player winning with Juri pad I'll change my mind
>>
>>283424990
Stick vs. Pad has nothing to do with that guy's post.
Drumming 4 punch inputs on a stick is objectively easier than whatever fucking black magic KnuckleDu uses to get hands to come out on that PS2 controller.
>>
>>283424990
>because the myth about stick being objectively better than pad is just that - a myth. It's all personal preference
For the most part id totally agree with you, pad however blows chunks for pianoing hands

If I see a top player winning with Juri at all, I'll lose my mind

what about wolfkrone playing viper on pad, tho
>>
>>283424713
Simple, because I like them more. How much you like a game is the only way to measure it, and the best game is the one you like the most. 3D fighters in general are much more clumsy and boring than 2D fighters. Block button, awkward and clumsy movement, stupidly large command list, etc.

Not even nasty O/S, she has nasty mixups. If you have SA2 and the execution to pull it off, you can do 80% damage from a single Karakusa. In characters that get stunned from the combo you can get a 100% if you have another SA2 meter to finish them off

Look at Yang's lifebar. That's how much damage Makoto can get from a 50/50 guess
