Simplifying Street Fighter is a guide for new players for preparing for Street Fighter V; that being said, it’s important to explain what that means. Beginners does not mean button mashers, it more or less means “competitive” beginners; people who know what buttons do and understand that there are certain ways to conduct one’s self in a fighting game. Furthermore, this guide will be irrelevant in six months when Street Fighter V launches, as it is based in training fundamentals in Street Fighter IV and carrying those skills over to SFV when the time comes.
If this guide ends up helping you, consider paying for the guide when it is no longer free or even signing up for a tutoring session with Gootecks over at Crosscounter. He’s a great guy and has been working hard in the Street Fighter community, so it would be great if we could give a little back.
