One Valid Excuse For Sucking At Fighting Games

Do you suck at fighting games? So does Kotaku commenter Masterage, but he actually has a valid excuse. Feel free to borrow it!

I love fighters, but they don't love me.

I've just been told that my dyscalculia could actually be stopping me from correctly remembering complex combo chains. Would explain a lot, actually, as I tend to go to characters with viable but short combos or rely on the knockdown guessing game.

Though unfortunately this means that I'll never reach a real competitive level without learning some other method. Stuck at able to beat casual but not tournament sucks.
