James “jchensor” Chen is one of the Fighting Game Community’s most respected thinkers. His years of experience as a competitor and a commentator have given him a level of insight that most of us can only dream of. Luckily, he recently decided to share some of his wisdom in a new YouTube series, “Learn How to Play Fighting Games.”
In the first episode, Chen explains his mentality-first approach, lays down the stakes, and then dives right in, explaining why fighting games offer a totally different psychological paradigm than most video gamers are used to. His explanations are clear, concise, and not overly technical, which makes them perfect for newcomers or those who are looking to dive more deeply into the FGC.
