Which video games require the most investment to get good?
 

 
Gotta be f*ghting games, by far. Especially Tekken 7. Every character got 100s of moves, with different frame data and strings.

And f*ghting games in general - i got SF5, MK11, UFC 4, Injustice 2 and others and these games are Deep AF.

After putting the time to learn Tekken 7, learning the other f*ghting games feels like too much of an investment. I'd rather just button mash offline.

Which games have you invested the most time/effort in to get good?

Finally beat that fu*ker after a while. Try to go in with a carbine, large health vile or w/e and a astronaut. Also get get as much health as possible before to have a extra health bar. I don't aim unless I hit him with the special shot. If you get his melee timing down to do your dash you should be able to get him.

MK11 Road to Demi God is always crazy in Kombat League. I don't know what someone does to reach level 95. But levels don't define skill. This sh*t takes months to get good. Years to be excellent and hella concentration. It's strategic as fuk.

Matches are on some Matrix sh*t at the level I am now.

I would say Super smash brothers

I went to visit my cousin a few years back and he would spend hours literally trying to master jumping techniques.

He wouldn’t eat, drink, chase pu**y or nothing.

Just jumping. All day every day.

For me I would say World of Warcraft

I damn near did a bid playing that game. Literally wasted a few of my prime years playing that game and keeping up with the ranking system

If you want a massive challenge in a f*ghting Game: Tekken 7, Guilty Gear

SFV once you are north of Gold gets grimey because you are guaranteed an opponent who has Mind Game Tactics: The Game Gets Thick

Tekken 7 is the most complex, Short Example:

Lei has what, 13 different styles and *each of them* has their own *entire* Movesets? I don’t play Tekken but I love watching certain Pros


This man is a God:

MMO ..the constant raising of level caps and availability of armor/weapon sets

A major update can break your whole build and force you to start over with synergy

Trials be lasting hours to beat after you've invested 100+ hours into a character


f*ghting games have had the same moveset for 30 years

Simple balance patches in f*ghting games can leave you in the dust if you don't stay on top of it. That's why even though I play a lot of f*ghting games, I tend to play like 90% of them casually these days. It's difficult to play f*ghting games at least decently while playing a lot of other games in different genres at the same time. Some people can do it, im not one of them lol. My young days over.

I still got a couple Fromsoft games in my backlog because of how hard they are. Those sh*ts make u better at video games in general.

Other than that survival games like Rimworld take a lot of time to get good at

Edit: forgot to mention Crusader Kings and EU those strategy games are massive and take a lot of time to figure out wtf you're doing

The thing about f*ghting games is that you can learn moves, combos, match ups, frame data, and all of that sh*t, you'll still straight up hit a wall when playing someone better than you and have no clue what you need to do to get better

^This along with Tekken dating back to the first game. As a King main, it takes alot of work to get his grapple strings down to muscle memory. It took me to Tekken 3 to actually have all his strings memorized and use competitively

Yea, f*ghting and racing games.

f*ghting cuz you have to of course you have to learn combos, and know how and when to counter/block, and anticipate what type of attack the opponent is going for


Racing games you have to stack $$$ or whatever for the better parts and skills, and know what part does what. Ur knowledge of cars and under the hood has to be on point. Tires, transmission, certain engines, exhausts, etc etc etc and also be aware of which parts work well with others.

I could say call of duty as well.



Online play is what really determines how good of a player you are…. Not just going against the computer
