Hey guys I wanted to start something new and I need your help.

I've never played any competitive games but I really want to. I've tried fighting games but I guess I don't have the patience to learn combos. Also, I can't start OW or WOW because it brings some bad memories. I feel like I don't have any options left but I really want to play something either competitive or co-op like and make new friends because I'm kinda lonely. Can you guys recommend me something pretty and fun?
I would appreciate if it's anime graphics but it having nice visuals is enough.
(I also tried Final Fantasy XIV but this is linked to bad memories as well)

There are fighting games that are considerably less tedious in the amount of combos you have to learn. I don't know which ones you've tried, but I would recommend Touhou 12.3 Hisoutensoku as a beginner friendly game for newbies to traditional fighters! It's got expressive pixel graphics and the characters are very cute. There's a discord called hisouten where you can find matches with other beginners and chat to other players if you're interested too!

You could try card games; Yugioh, Magic, and Hearthstone all have free to play games with a competitive scene.

If you have a Switch maybe try competitive Pokemon? There's a lot of online resources and communities to help you get into it. All in-person events have been cancelled this year but usually you can find a local tournament to go to.

Have you tried phantasy star online 2? It's free and the community is really friendlier than those from most online games.
Bonus for being anime-like and /fa/ (if ur a weeb like me).

I only like 2 fighters. Smash and Soul Calibur 6. I don't get the rest, they are too hard for me and the stories are bad.

For example Streetfighter has some good character designs but I dont get how old school fighting games work.

I guess OP's only option is Soul Calibur if she likes swords and fantasy or Tekken by the same developers but Tekken looks too ugly for me, I know it's basically Soul Calibur without weapons so it's more about martial arts. But idk its too ugly overall only has like 2 cute character designs I seen there Leo and Kazumi oh and it has Noctis from Final Fantasy. I don't own it but I have watched the smash streamer Leffen play it.

Idk but you better choose quick what to get into because the sales are ending.

You gave me a idea. OP could ask in the /fa/ thinspo threads what games they play or just make the troll post "which competitive online games are /fa/" and have that community throw out names. I already know they like Smash but that is the most popular fighting game ever so.

I know exactly how you feel. I don’t have anyone to play games with that are meant to be games you can play with others and that makes me really depressed. WoW is really comfy but it certainly holds a lot of memories.

> I would appreciate if it's anime graphics but it having nice visuals is enough.

Have you heard of genshin impact? It is like playing a real anime. I have no one to play with though so it gets super sad. Do you want to play it with me?

I have absolutely horrible memories with final fantasy xiv. The music is really special though.

Apex seems like it's the new hotness in casualish competative stuff. Not pretty enough though? And bad memories? You get bullied for being a dumb newb or something? That will happen anywhere, don't make it ruin the whole game for you.

What bad memories do you guys have associated with FFXIV? I also have lots of good and bad memories associated with it but I just can't bring myself to quit it for good, it's the only game that hits all my buttons. So I just move servers or even start a new character when my feelings start to be too much…

Fighters aren't that hard once you understand them, the trick is finding one you like enough that you can stick with it to learn the fundamentals. For me that game was Persona 4 Arena which I absolutely adored. Are there any fighters that interest you aesthetically? Guilty Gear, Blazblue, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur, Tekken, Under Night In-Birth, anything? In all honesty I really enjoy the soundtracks for Blazblue,Under Night, Guilty Gear and Persona 4 Arena, which helps a lot. I can try to help ease you into the basics of a fighting game, which isn't hard at all, even though it looks intimidating it's really not.

Also, are you looking for something that's more co-operative, or more competitive? A really basic co-op game that comes off the top of my head would be Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition which you can do with others, assuming you aren't in Aus/NZ in which the game servers are fucked and Square isn't fixing them.

Everyone, thank you for your really helpful recs! I'll try WOW even if it's linked with bad memories tbh I have to stop being a coward afraid not to get hurt, appreciate the moment and start playing games for myself not for the people I'm playing games for. I hope one day we'll stop being paranoid about male trolls and start a game, play together and meet girls that are similar to us!
