Video Game Genre - Fighting Games
(Episode 6) In this episode of Video Game Genres, we take a look at one of the most popular and socializing game genres ever. This is a genre that focuses more on action on one or more various opponents that takes time and skill in beating anyone that stands in your way. It doesn't exactly have an adventure like other action video games, but sets you immediately to fight against an opponent set in a stage limited with such room, health, and move sets. Thus in the longest episode of the Video Game Genres series, I'll be taking a close look at the origins of the genre, games that defined the genre and changed everything, how a fighting exactly works when playing any of them, things in common towards all fighting games, naming the subgenres, negatives, and more. Still to this day, Fighting Games have been the number 1 pick up and play competitive gameplay that grew a rapid wild audience around the world. Since fighting games kinda went downhill in the 90's and struggled to get back to the top as the best competitive gameplay in the industry. My duty is to promote this video game genre and show you guys what many of these games have to offer; challenging, intense battle with CPU or other players.
I can't believe that this whole episode is nearly 30 minutes and I plan not to make a review this long ever again, but for this episode of Video Game Genres, it must be this long because of how much elements and features that needs to be discussed, plus all the videos that needed to be recorded. Really, it was this very video that was the reason why I haven't posted a video in almost over a month. It was a VERY hard video to make and I did it because it's been a very long time since there was an episode of this video series so I hope it was worth it =) One more thing, I plan to NOT to make the episodes of Video Game Genres to be in HD because I don't want past episodes of the series to look outdated when they never were in HD. So I'm doing my best to make the episodes more focused on quality of information rather than how good it looks. Don't worry, my reviews and all my other videos will be in HD, but not episode of Video Game Genres. Anyway, I'll do my very best to make another 3D Platformer review coming soon!
BTW, the next episode of the BOOCHOW! Radio Podcast will be recorded next week, so be sure to stay tuned for our 20th Episode BOOCHOW! Special!!!
