+151 Contrary to video games, most people fighting in real life don't jump at all in any fight. amirite?

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Because people in real life can't jump 6 to 10 feet off the ground and then change their direction into a specialized kick or punch...

I mean i bet some people could do it...just not a lot of them..

A few martial artists do or did. Jackie Chan, and Bruce Lee to name a couple. Of course these ones are considered prime of the prime, but still..

I'm not a big FPS gamer, but I sometimes played with my friends. This kind of thing drove me insane. I'll never understand why devs don't nerf jumping. I don't need my game to be hyper realistic, but I also don't think incentivizing players to constantly jump and spin like they're pro Pogo stick afficionados is good game design.

I do butt spin leg sweeps at my opponents' ankles, forcing them to hop like little bunnies, it terrifies and belittles them

And nobody kneels down and does low knee kicks to the feet of the opponent until the opponent dies from it.

contrary to real life, fighting games dont target the crotch (exclusively) even though it's the most effective part to hit

Crotch shots are painful but not debilitating. Someone tough or hopped up on adrenaline can and will ignore low blows. Better to aim for the head. Lots of soft spots, eyes (!), ears, nose, lips. Concussion will put someone down.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Indeed. In a fight for your life type of fight you more so risk flooding your opponent with more adrenaline. I was more so taught go for the throat than the head

by Anonymous 5 months ago

That's fair. As a 42 year old man, I honestly can't remember the last time I jumped. I played basketball \~2 years ago for the first time in a while...and I'm sure I jumped then. But in day to day or month to month goings on, yeah...I don't jump very much.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

That's kind of crazy to me, even if i know it's true. I play soccer, so im jumping at least a few times a game. And when i walk my dog to the creek i jump across the rocks and over fallen trees. I just cant imagine a life with no jumping in it.

Attempting 360 no-scopes are also frowned upon I believe.

by Anonymous 5 months ago

When we go elk hunting, I always give my buddies crap because they have to hard scope elks. Such noobs. If I don't pull a full 360 no scope on the elk, I donate the meat to other people and don't even keep any for myself.

They don't low kick either

by Anonymous 5 months ago

Yes. Video game characters can usually control their trajectory in the air in ways that real people can't. IF a real person jumps in a fight, their opponent knows exactly where they're going, and there's nothing they can do to change that.

You'll be surprised to know people can't suddenly invert momentum and missile into a drop kick that makes a colorful shockwave
