What's the most important thing in a fighting game?










I know you need a combination of factors, but which one quality would you pick as the most important?

Gameplay

If it’s not fun to play i don’t care how good the graphics are, how many characters it has, or how much content, etc...

And if it is fun to play i can excuse some of the issues with it, while recognizing there are things that i will look forward to being changed or improved for a potential sequel
I think if we spent the time we spent thinking about not spending money and spent that time on spending money, then itd be time well spent.

Immediacy of gameplay. There are too many fighting games out to want to focus on one that you just can't have fun playing, at any level of play.
I solemnly swear that I aim to misbehave.

Thats the cold truth of it. In the west at least, injustice 2 got 10/10 scores from all western publications and won goty.

Gameplay is irrelevant. An outdated concept.

No offense but not asking this question is the most important thing.

I'm being serious. It ALWAYS leads to bad things. Always.

Fighting games are games. Products. They need to be good overall. That doesn't happen when you start the conversation basically asking "what is it I DON'T have to do?"

Nor is it the people whining on the internet about who true fans are
