SF2 for anybody who's been around long enough.
You had a leg up on SF3 and subsequent releases based on the knowledge/memorization you obtained from playing 2.

So for the confused, knowledge and memorization is not synonymous with skill. Having knowledge does not mean you have skill.

But having skill means you have knowledge of what you are skilled at. Rectangle and Square situation.

Not really, since having knowledge does not mean you have skill, you can isolate skill from knowledge by having everyone compete where knowledge of the characters is the same.

So now we are comparing people that know how to play the game against people that don't know how to play, but know Ryu and Akuma have beef? What is the purpose?

Really seems like you are trying to isolate talent, not skill. Again, you might want to do a new thread and be a lot more clear.

Umm, no, talent is the having of innate skill. I want to see who has the most skill, not necessarily who innately has the most of it.

no wonder I have tagged you like that

Yep, now I know why I have the TC tagged as well. This thread is going nowhere and giving the TC the benefit of the doubt went nowhere.

Right, so which game best measures the pure dexterity of this application of this knowledge?


So you mean like, what game best allows the player to apply their knowledge, without solely falling back on it? Like, for example, if two people were playing a fighting game, and one person has memorized all of the advanced tech and the other player, someone who only knows the few important techs and uses them to capitalize better than the other person, who has learned all the tech the game has to offer?

Right. Which of these games are the most skill dependent, and the least knowledge dependent. I know you always need some knowledge, blah blah blah, but which game is the least dependent of it to win.

Well yeah, now I can see why this would be confusing, since fighting games are mostly knowledge dependent. But of the ones listed, SFV or SF2 probably.

Yeah, i don't like how fighting games are trending to become more and more specialized knowledge dependant, but capcom has a different opinion i guess.
