Trying something new is one of those things that people either love or hate. I am one of those people who love it. I was recently encouraged by my husband to try playing a fighting game, and if you know me, fighting games are probably my least favorite game genre.
It’s not that I hate the fighting game genre completely, but I am seriously trash when it comes to playing them. I really struggle with remembering combos and feeling overwhelmed during the actual fight that all I do is button mash and hope for the best.
Right now Injustice: God’s Among Us is free in the PS4 store. I believe today (6/25/2020) is the last day you can grab it for free as well. I decided to give it a go the other night to add it to my collection.
I am lucky enough to have someone to play with who let me win a couple rounds, helped me learn some easier combos, and pick out a character that I would like (what up Bat Girl!) Playing fighting games is thr worst when you are a beginner and you have to play against someone so much better than you that you can’t even get one hit in. I was surprised that I found myself actually having fun with it.
Ultimately, I am glad I downloaded the game. Will I be playing Mortal Kombat or Tekken anytime soon? Probably not, especially online 😬 But, I am proud of myself for trying something new.
Do you have a video game genre that you just really don’t enjoy? I encourage you to try it again or for the first time. You might surprise yourself and find yourself having fun.
