  • Genuine Question: Where is the fun in video games if it's not in winning?

    The fun is learning from your mistakes, not winning every fight, race or adventure. Trust me, when you hit the skill ceiling it gets boring fast.

    Silly things, good company and getting better at the game.
    It may not always be easy but your mental state and skill will be impacted by how widely you view games.
    Getting better is imo the easiest way to get past just winning, since you can recontextualize winning as not just winning or losing a match, but every day trying to be better than you were yesterday and thus win over your past self. You can care less about winning or losing in the present when you think about that perfect version of yourself that you are inching towards. Because one win or loss doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

    I don't know about video games in general, but specifically referring to Smash, the fun is in good matches. There's just a really good thing of playing actual good people and being able to perform at your best yourself, even if you aren't winning.

    I'd rather lose against a better player putting up my best than win against bad players playing sloppy.
    My new goal is to beat Leoinu Leoinu one of these days, having lost to him multiple times. I won't be at peace until I do.

    You realize being drunk and out of practice for 3 weeks put you at better odds? And you still got 3 stocked

    I don't care. If I can't redeem myself, what am I good for?

    I mean. Good luck I guess? lol
    Now, the only superheavy I'll judge people for playing is Ganondorf. He takes every superheavy strength and flaw and exaggerates them. He has a tough time getting in, since that's what he needs to do to begin his quick kills, and because of his numerous big flaws, he'll more than likely go into disadvantage once and never come out alive.
    So there's this trend I have in fighting games: Play a character, complain about them, drop them, then get slaughtered by someone else using your ex-character.

    Note that these characters are usually very bad, so it really bugs me.
    I don't get the appeal of Animal Crossing, or why people suggested I play it as a means of relaxation.
    **** this. I'm going back to SmashLadder. I'm tired of losing to overly good players who may possibly be making fun of me and bragging about their bs wins.
    I don't understand how people are good with Bowser Jr. I literally cannot do **** with him.

    I don't wanna say this but I'm tired, so I'll just say "get gud".

    I'm not about to "git gud" with a character I don't even pocket.

    You are kind of contradicting yourself. You need time and effort to learn a character and are complaining that you can't use them while not putting in that effort.
    I was once told that, because I think being combo food is the worst flaw a character can have, I should think Fox is one of the worst characters in Smash Ultimate. But I disagree; his two recovery options, linear as they are, are more doable and less gimpable than most superheavy recoveries. Fox is also harder to react to in general and has an easier time getting his advantage state than superheavies, hence why I agree with his high tier placement.

    And I'm banned for ANOTHER hour because of a teabagger.

    At this point, I'm far from being the reason this game irritates me. I'm not playing Quickplay ever again.
    Me: *wins after one match and rematches*

    Opponent: *accepts*

    And then there's this...

    Me: *loses after one match and rematches*

    Opponent: *leaves*

    This always happens and it makes me think less of players than I already do.

    Yeah, maybe if you took some damn advice and fixed your ****ing issues that problem would go away

    The best way to get better at anything competitive is to face off against an opponent somewhat better than yourself. That way you are most engaged because you know you can win if you give it your all. So that is in effect, either consciously or unconsciously.
    Another player lagged so hard I got banned for no reason. This game shouldn't ban you for something that wasn't your fault.

    MY ban was due to lag coming from another player. It disconned and I got banned from online because of it.

    What does a random discon that I didn't cause have to do with my mindset?
    This profile post was warned for flaming/harassment content in regards to Ganondorf players. Please avoid making sweeping like this.
    I swear some people cause lag on purpose. I got 3 stocked by a Ganondorf because of it (no surprise because Ganondorf players are ***** IRL).

    These people deserve no rights.
    I don't lab my combos on any superheavy ever. I'd rather not think less of an already-struggling archetype.

    You should always lab your combos or it will just make your life Hell in the long run. It will only 'feels bad man' even more when you could have killed or had someone at kill % way faster if you'd been on point with even a couple basic B&Bs. Only hurting yourself.

    I didn't say I don't lab combos at all. I just said I don't to feel like superheavies exist only to be combo food because it's already a hassle to turn on their oppressive advantage states.
    So E3 2020 IS cancelled. What does this mean we miss out on?
    I'm little confused about something.

    I was once told that Jigglypuff is not a "conventional" matchup in that she's uncommon and/or mainly aerial based.

    But if she's uncommon, how is that possible when Hungrybox exists? Is it the same with MKLeo/Joker?
    In terms of how good a character they are, my superheavy ranking goes like this from best to worst:

    Bowser > Charizard > King Dedede > Incineroar >>> Donkey Kong/Ganondorf > King K. Rool
    I'mma be honest, people who main superheavies not named Bowser (or maybe Charizard) are one of two things:

    1) They're braver and more strong-willed than any soldier ever.

    Or...

    2) They need to seek therapy immediately so they stop torturing themselves, whether masochistically or not.

    Zard's got a lot of more subtle differences from Bowser, despite playing very similar. Bowser prefers to jump a lot in neutral, using his amazing Fair and sometimes mixing it up with side b to beat shields. Zard likes to stay on the ground more and use a lot of spaced f-tilts and fast jabs. This allows Bowser to play more aggressively while Zard has to be a tad bit more cautious.

    I'm not a DK expert, but he's probably the most oppressive in terms of how aggresive he can be, and it's mostly thanks to his Bair. No other superheavy, and even other characters have a Bair they can do twice out of a short hop that even kills. It can create frametraps with this like Uair and Nair. Sure, Bowser and Charizard are quick on the ground, but it's not like they can work the same aggressively. They're a lot better in terms of OoS options, I'll give you that. His tilts are also no slouch, and they have the most range.

    I consider K.Rool significantly better than people think, but that's probably for another day. I don't think he's as good as Bowser, though.

    Whatever, I still say Charizard is on the same part of the ladder as Bowser.
    Maining Bowser has made my life so much easier.

    I also just realize jump canceled Side B is a real and very valid option and that people aren't falling for shield drop Side B.

    I was waiting for a reason to like a character without reliable spikes/buries.
