reading the serious suggestions in this thread, I am afraid none of these fit what I wanted. Actually, now that I think about it, I think my expectations far exceed the capabilities of current videogames.
I want something where I'm able to have complete control over my character (i'm talking about availability to control muscle contractions and shit with just my hands or some other input method, so I don't know if multiple keyboards would suffice or what, cuz that level of APM might not be humanely possible) so that the skill is not only in outplaying/reading your opponents but also in your ability to control your own character and utilize attacks that you can create yourself; like martial arts in real life kind of.
Ironically, the closest thing that I can think of to this is bending in minecraft. There aren't videos that showcase it but it's basically the same idea except the combos and stuff are simple (pressing buttons to activate the same move over and over again). This type of game would have to have extremely low lag too :[
quake is fun but it's mostly aim & thinking, I want something with micro, thinking, and combat (so SC2 and other ARTS are out of the picture)..
Any suggestions or do I lose :(?
edit: also Melee is good but it's not really as deep as I want it. Instead of having like 10 moves in total to cycle through in situations to combo, I'd rather be able to create hundreds of moves myself, through free movement if that makes sense.
is it possible to use your feet for input LOL like I don't think just hands cut it for this type of game i'm describing..
