So I started to read this article and it's clear that this guy is a bad journalist, well, as far a fact checking/researching goes. Then I started to think about it and it seems that a lot of people (at least that I know) have this negative opinion of fighting games, and some even believe this for some reason.
I think the reason for people feeling this way is because a lot of information about fighting games has to be researched and isn't found in the game, per se. Like, I recently have been getting into SSFIV, after not played fighting games in years, and having to look up frame counting, canceling, option select, etc. So does anyone think this type of information should be included within the game bypassing this whole meta-game of figuring out how to play fighters?
