I hadn't played a fighting game until MK came out this past summer. I loved the hell out of the demo and all of the praise from GB finally convinced me to get it pretty much the day it came out. It was a risk, but it tuned out fine in the long run. I played a ton of it over the summer and got way into it. I was never to insanely good, but I could hold my own. I got back into it eariler this month and am having a blast again, though I'd kind of like to try something new. From what I've heard MK is the easier of the fighting games for beginners to get into. Since Super Street Figher is one of the other big fighting games I thought I'd give it a try. I love the way it looks, and it seems to have ALOT of cool characters. I just wonder if it will be tough for me to get into since I'm used to the arrow button attacks as opposed to the quarter circle play of Street Fighter. I found myself always using the d-pad over the analog sticks when doing MK attacks so I'm worried that may effect my play.
So I thought I'd ask you guys if you think I'd have a hard time getting into it? I probably won't do too much online play, though I may dabble here or there like I did with MK. It's only $15 on Amazon so it seems like a great deal. I'm just curious if anyone else here also got into fighting games this year due to MK and also went and got into Street Fighter. Will it be tough for me to get into, or can beginners get the hang of SSFIV with a little experience of other fighting games?
