I want to begin studying fighting games like it's my life. I study Skullgirls and Skullgirls Encore a lot and I find that whether it was a slow-paced fighter or as fast as it is now, it would always be a beautiful game with legitimate balancing, a quirky cast of characters and even a lovely community of diverse groups and cultured people carrying this game on in real-life. But I wonder if SF:3 Third Strike or Second Impact is better. To me, even if 3rd Strike's supposed to be a tad bit more balanced, 2nd Impact is much more aesthetically and musically pleasing, and people think the balance in 2nd Impact is actually better than 3rd Strike. And hey, you could possibly think New Generation is the best. So, I want to hear your take on which is better because I want to know which is more worth my time studying.
