    I just recently began to love virtua fighter, i got it for dreamcast. I began playing with tekken, i consider myself novice/expert, and therefore i love in depth fighting games.. CAN anyone recommend someone good but not as hard as AKIRA, for now i just want to get the understanding of VIRTUA.. Oh, do u think soul calibur is better/ in depth than virtua?? Which characters rank the best at tournament level? sorry for the many questions, i'm new to virtua....

    If you want to start with an easier character yet maintain loads of power, I have three words for you: Jacky, Jacky, Jacky. ;)

    Actually, you have quite a few choices in front of you. Best to check out Jeff's No dojo article in the Astro City section ( i think that's where it is)...

    As far as your other questions - Soul Calibur is indeed a beautiful game with lots of depth and fun fighting *however* VF3tb has a truly unique fighting complexity that places it leagues above SC. The rich and steep learning curve accompanied by excellent gameplay and loads and loads of yomi (the art of out-thinking your opponent) will provide one with much enjoyment - glad to see you like it..many people are turned off by this VF uniqueness. ;)

    Seriously though - check out Jeff's articles on the characters for people at your level of play (step 1, step 2 as he likes to call them). It'll be a good read to introduce you to what's available. Truly the last criteria comes down to who you *like* to play. Do not be discouraged by Akira's difficult (technically) moves, they can be practiced and learned well at the step 1 level. ;)

    Tier rankings do not apply to specialists; all characters are pretty much equal at the highest level of play.

    If you're choosing a new character, can I make a few suggestions:

    1) Please don't pick Kage, there are too many of them!
    2) Jacky is a good choice to learn the game with, but there are also a lot of Jackys.
    3) I would recommend learning Lau. He is powerful but is not played by that many people.
    4) If you're brave enough, go for Taka, Aoi, two of the most underplayed characters.
