Started playing tekken when I was eight, during the T2 period. Still remember vividly how if you press up + triangle when they were on the ground, you jumped really high and stomp their face into the ground
During Tekken 3 I discovered independently without reference to any online sites (didn't really use the internet much back then) that the single best move to spam for yoshi was df + 4 (saviour boot! ftw!)
Didn't play much Tekken 4, was weirded out by the wall system
Tekken 5 I played heaps... also the first time when I participated in a Tekken tourney. I went into the tourney armed with nothing but prediction and the saviour boot(I didn't know how to juggle!)and fought my way to the 3rd round where I came up against a seeded player using Lei. Here comes one of the most embarrassing moments of my life... it was the final match, 2 wins each, and he whiffs an attack. I key in the turning suicide... and it hits!
I let out a great roar of satisfaction, only to realise that it was around 5 frames away from being a counterhit, and I had just killed myself for no reason. (he had like 10% health left)
Now that Tekken 6 is coming out on PS3, I plan to buy it very soon, and continue my childhood dream... to be the best in Tekken in the world! Yayah! (it got delayed by DotA along the way, haha)
