“Reading is not just pattern recognition… it’s understanding how they think.”
“How did Daigo just walk up and Dragon Punch that guy?” is a sentence that has been said more then once by announcers in the FGC. It might seem like a player is psychic when they make an incredible correct guess in fighting games, but the skill being tested isn’t supernatural. “Reading”, as Frabisaur explains in his latest tutorial video, is deduction, not precognition. Like any other skill, you can hone your ability to deduce through character and match study — check out the video above to find out how!
