After many years of considering taking the dive into traditional fighting games, Dragon Ball FighterZ was finally the title that roped me in. I had sunken a huge amount of time into Super Smash Bros. Melee during college, which gave me an appreciation for the significant amount of time and energy it takes to improve at games in the genre. Over their last two releases, “anime fighter” developer Arc System Works has done a great job at crafting titles that are easy to learn, but tough to master, and act as a vital bridge into the FGC.
