Ryan Hart Discusses Perfect Parry in Street Fighter 6

"If you had an "always safe" route to victory where would the challenge be?"

When you have a franchise that lasts more than a quarter of a century, talking about how the grass was greener is inevitable. But sometimes, these opinions have legitimate reasoning. 

On X (ex-Twitter), the discussion unfolded around perfect parry in Street Fighter 6. Several high-tier players, including Punk and Big Bird, went vocal against it.

Ryan Hart shared an interesting thought for those who might need help understanding the reason for dissatisfaction with this mechanic. The Prodigal Son thinks that players on the defense must accurately guess your attacks, and "they don't get your health for free. Dont they deserve reward for predicting correctly? If you had an "always safe" route to victory where would the challenge be? There has to be risk otherwise the competition is meaningless".

He also mentioned that "the psychological game was highest in Third Strike":

There is sense in these words. However, it seems like the introduction of the perfect parry was a conscious choice by game developers, and they might have taken such opinions into account. What do you think about the perfect parry? Is the game moving in the right direction? Share your thoughts in the comments.
