I mean, it must be rewarding if everyone's talking about how all the characters, or most I guess, need skill to be good. I usually prefer games that have mechanics that favor skill over button-mashing.
Whenever people annoy me, I think to myself "It's ok, because I"m going to be more successful than you" And then I smile and walk away.
Button mashing won't get you far if you want to be good with a character and win every online game. Even Kratos has more than forward square.
A few nights ago I had a Kratos stomp my ass. I hadn't encountered a Kratos who knew his combos, remembered that he had a counter and utilitize buttons that didn't only involve square. It was refreshing and scary how fast he built meter.
