[Author's note : I originally posted this on my local Facebook group for some of our scene's newer players, but I figured I haven't seen any instructional articles on the front page of DL lately, so I decided to share it.]
A major problem I see with most tutorials for fighting games is that they're TOO beginner focused. "This is the button layout!" or "Here's how to use such-and-such system mechanic!" seem commonplace. Where are the tutorials for players in between novice and pro? Personally, I believe it's an issue that should be addressed, and hopefully something we'll see more of. With that said, I'm going to offer my technique for combo selection for intermediate players. The specifics of this guide apply to Guilty Gear, but its principles can apply to virtually any fighting game.
