    Im a total beginner to Virtua Fighter games. And just bought the fourth version =) What character is good to start out with if you want to learn the basic way to play VF4 so you can then learn to play whith the more complicated characters such as Akira. Or is that just uneccesary?

    akira isn't hard to use(well, his play style isn't, but the move commands you need to do can be quite annoying for beginners).

    jacky's always good for beginners to learn the basic poking mechanism for the game.

    bleh. Use Jacky... beginners shouldn't start with Akira... his style of fighting is kinda unconventional, and it's important that you learn the basic mechanics of the game before you try someone like Akira. But whatever. I tried Aoi first for chrissakes.

    The only hard thing about Akira is performing some of his moves... And you don't need them to start good with him. You really don't need to think too much with Akira, so he's not as hard as he seems to be. /versus/images/icons/laugh.gif

    <a target="_blank" href=http://virtuafighter.com/view.php?section=vf4&file=vf4_chara_chart.html>Click on this link to VFDC's Character Selection Guide.</a> It's a pretty helpful guide put together by ice-9 that can be used to make this kind of choice. It suggests that Pai, Lau, Wolf, Sarah, Jacky, Lion and Lei-Fei are the easiest to start with. If you want a character you can grow with and will grow with you, Wolf, Sarah, Lion and Lei-Fei seem to be your best bets. I've been using Sarah and Lion off and on to get a feel for parts of their games and recommend them heartily for beginners. I especially recommend Sarah if you are more accustomed to conventional fighting.
