So in every fighting game you can button mash, I just find with Tekken, that you seem to be able to abuse mashing. Now before any Tekken fan boys get their panties in a twist, im not saying Tekken is a mashing game, im just saying, mashing seems viable in the beginning. Now I have a niece and nephew that happen to love fighting games. They dont really know what they are doing and will mash till their hearts content or find one normal that seems good. In a game like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, I can beat this with ease as they throw out ridiculous normals from anywhere on the screen while I choose what to do. I played them at Tekken today and I swear, I was just anihilated. I mean yeah, I could back up, hit them with a long range knock down move and then I could spam low kick or low punch and they would whine but walk into my attacks. I dont want to play this way, I want to get good at Tekken. I guess some frame data for this game would be nice, cause today I would deliberately get cornered and then as they are hammering away, I would block and try and retaliate. I just find there seems to be limited ways to respond? If I throw out a attack after block that doesnt have priority, I'll get blown up by random button mashing combos. Everyone talks about movement in this game. Are they any essential defensive tips, certain counter moves that I need to learn. Does every character have a good "universal" counter, or are all characters truly unique in what they can and cant do?
