Fighting games have long been a pillar of the video game industry. From the early days of Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Killer Instinct, and many others the genre values competition over everything. While so many games have come to focus on making their games easier to pick up and play. Many fighters continue to balance entry-level difficulty with a high skill ceiling that makes players pursue to be better. With all this being said, it is an incredibly tough genre to get into for newbies, but many people have been making the leap. This is especially true with Tekken 7 which has hit a major sales milestone this week.
