Here’s a blog idea that I had some time ago, but I never got around to finishing it. Now, I wasn’t very impressed with Street Fighter x Tekken. I didn’t care for managing gems, and looking at the roster, there were characters I wanted to see in the game that weren’t in it. From there, I thought it would be enlightening to go back and look at the fighting game stats of older games I used to play. In this adventure, I encountered some problems, such as the leaderboards not being accurate, but it was still fascinating to see how much I played certain titles over others. Let’s get this show on the road!
Street Fighter IV, is by far the fighting game I’ve played the most online, at least from the ones I tested out. According to the leaderboards, 400 fights were played (I’m not sure if what kinds of matches this includes, but I played mostly ranked games). Fei Long was my most used character, followed by Dan (neither of which are playable in Street Fighter x Tekken. I really was hoping for some Fei Long vs. Law jokes).
BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger. I played it for 51 Ranked matches, and I mostly usedwife. I wasn’t very good at BlazBlue, which is probably why I didn’t play it as much.
Next up, Super Street Fighter IV. Xbox Live VS Progress is listed as 258 matches, and Ranked Match Progress is listed as 174. Of those 258 matches, Cody is listed as being used 194 times (again, he’s not in Street Fighter x Tekken. At least, not yet). It’s a significant drop from Street Fighter IV, but it still goes in hand with my other blog on how I stopped playing Call of Duty games online as time went on.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3. I was really looking forward to this one, but I was really soured by Capcom’s actions in the year of its release. The license card in my account lists 313 matches total. Spider-Man was used 249 times out of those 313 matches.
There are a couple of notable omissions. I know I played Super Street Fighter II HD Remix quite a bit, but the amount of matches I played weren’t recorded accurately on the leaderboard last I checked . This is the same problem I encountered with Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on XBLA. I got an achievement for winning 100 ranked matches on MvC2, but according to the data within the game, I only played about 10 ranked matches, which I know is inaccurate. There are a couple other fighting games I could have included, but this is the bulk of it. That’s about it for today. Now here’s a chart I made to practice on Excel.
