A little background I guess is I'm a competitive FPS player. I played Halo mainly but I competed in games like CoD, UT, Shadowrun, GoW, Quake, etc. Now in about more than half of those games (mainly Halo and GoW) there was not that much content to teach you how to do what the pros did well. You had to learn how to predict spawns, strafe techs, techniques, shooting tips, etc all of those by yourself. Most pros or big guys would put content up but they were either really simple tips most players know, or just gameplay of them playing and commentating over it. Basically all the higher level stuff you learned by playing or by friends as you never read articles or videos for them since they were never there.
But it's really different with the FGC, or it seems like that to me. James Chens First Attack series, tutorials for characters, Character sections, community members, etc are awesome. The influx of content I got from the FGC for games like SF4, UMvC3, etc are great as I see videos/posts that help me with my game greatly. Of course I still suck as I'm still pretty new but I've been getting constantly better and the content is a HUGE part for that. Definitely a big difference than what I got from the games I used to play competitively.
Not to mention that the normal users this time are way more helpful. I ask a lot of dumb questions and the community still helps, when it came to a lot of other games I competed in, the opposite would happen. Statements of being dumb, ignorant, etc were thrown sometimes and it felt that in forums with more higher level players that players who were lower skilled or new to the competitive aspect of the game were the odd one out. In SRK (Or at least the part of the forums I post in) it doesn't seem like that as I ask very simple questions and users just answer them with no snide remarks
