    But the show aspect is awesome... Different strokes for different folks, I suppose.


    Marvel Vs. Capcom was a highly enjoyable fighting game, IMO.

    I wonder if Edahn or Zergling will split this thread, since so much of it has nothing to do with Zangief.

    I will if we can't all get back on the topic at hand, which is Zangief's worth as a professional street fighter. Maybe I should start handing out warnings and infractions for all you fuckers who are babbling on about MK and other derails.

    P.S. Jennifer's a moderator too.

    I was kinda hoping to get it back to the subject of relating/identifying, in a way that inextricably linked it all to Zangief, just to really give you a headache

    p.s. could always just retitle it

    I'm lazy. Let's just change the subtitle.

    Hey, wait, I thought this was in Fluff (!?). Now it's a serious topic? Well, that changes everything!

    the best guy in the south bay area in the early 90s was this middle eastern guy Moses.

    I beat him one second round. muahaha!

    a lot of players thought zangief was the only one who can throw. i remember everyone called throwing "Jewing" altho now that i think about it, it just meant "cheap move" lol

    but with zangief it was cool. but with other players, a lot of real fights broke out cus someone "cheaped" u at the end... lol

    It's funny, but playing fighting games opened up an interesting little window into the world of cognitive functions in action.

    Eventaully, I talked to my INTJ brother about why it was that I did so much better than him at fighting games. He said that, in general, he wasn't very good at them, because as he played, he would elaborately plan out a course of action in his head. Of course, in a fighting game, the odds that everything would go as planned for you is extremely low. Secondly, it takes too much mental focus to plan like that, when you need to be paying attention to the present.

    I thought this was interesting as I compared it to my own approach. When I play fightings games, I store in my mind a large compilation of principles and guidelines. Something to the effect of "if he does that, I do this", "if my life is in the red, and the timer is low, I'll change to this tactic", "If I'm using this character against that character, don't bother using this move" etc..
    It seems that my little formula system is much, much more effective than my brother's system. Probably because it allows me to react the situation at hand. It makes my style flexible and modular.

    Now, is this an example of the INTJ thinking process versus the INTP one? Because it really seems like it is.
