As most of your who have been on GaG for awhile know, I am a HUGE fan of fighting games. From Street Fighter, to Tekken, to Mortal Kombat, to Soul Calibur, to Guilty Gear, and the like... they are so fun to play with tons of replay value.
But for some reason, in the current era of video gaming, fighting games have gone through a drought in terms of their popularity and the amount of people younger than me playing these games... and the preference goes to games such as shooters (Halo, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Rainbow Six, etc.), and action games such as Grand Theft Auto.
Whether you are a gamer or not, why do you think that fighting games are slipping further and further down the totem pole in terms of popularity, and the dismal number of people in their teens and 20s playing them in comparison to other genres?

Mortal kombat... yay. I think it's just a matter of interest and I find shooting games to be monotonous as opposed to people who say fighting games are monotonous. Tried to play call of duty a few times and just couldn't get into it.
It is all about the market though... fifa and pes are probably never going out of fashion.1

Because all those games are the same shit, the characters practically have all the same moves and once you've played a few of them they all feel like the same thing with updated graphics. The FPS are more diversity. I miss the fighting games but they gotta figure out how to stop making them so hopelessly dull.1
