I watched this video, and my brain began to fry: [media=youtube]fO7_zkU9Ax8[/media]
This isn’t the only display of fighting game genius I’ve seen on YouTube. It’s just one of many.
My hope for this thread is that it becomes a showcase of talent (past and present) in fighting games. I would even like to see some videos of ingenious execution even when a good player loses. (For example: there’s a ST match between Dhalsim & Zangief where a cornered Dhalsim helplessly teleports while Zangief attempts the SPD, repeatedly.)
This thread can include:
the name of the player, along with their specialty character (i. e. “Kuroda/OUT is synonymous with Q” or “___ plays a pretty relentless ___”)
blurbs pertaining to a player’s/character’s nuances (like Kensou’s super makes his fireball unblockable, etc.)
explanations of videos with ‘less-than-obvious’ shenannigans going on (i. e. the aforementioned Dhalsim/Zangief video)
little known anecdotes (for example, about matches between ‘masters’ that didn’t happen, who discovered/popularized a glitch, technique, etc.)
While your choice for ‘master of their craft’ may differ from someone else’s choice, let’s be civil. This thread is not about arguing who’s C. Viper is better. It’s about showcasing fighting game talent. If there is some clarification of FACTS that needs to be addressed, let’s do so tactfully.
Your attention is appreciated. Let the posting begin…
damn those guys in that first vid have GREAT adaptation. I can only play that well against slobs… fuck
good thread. more players should learn to have adaptation this good. don’t be too mesmerized by these vids though. the shit is fantastic, not gonna downplay that at all, but it’s not as amazing as it looks. it’s ONE piece of a giant puzzle
figured someone would say this. if it’s buffering then something must be seriously wrong with my controller. either that or I’m seriously doing something wrong, I’m only getting 5 hits. oh well, don’t know too much about ST in the first place
