Well, if you enjoy playing in a chaotic environment where anyone can take advantage of a situation and win, hats off to you. I like to think of FFA as more team based anyway. The bad players feed me points. Good team work.
It's not just fighting games, TC. FPS's suffer from this all the time too.
Don't forget rpgs! XD
Pretty much any video game that can be played competitively will have this. I remember when the fourth player in Mario Kart 64 used to rage because everyone else took Yoshi/Peach/Toad. XDDDD --- If I haven't mentioned Trivio in my post, it's because she is so beautiful and precarious that I just wanted to show her how much she means to me.
