Why don't you play fighting games anymore gamers?

So, I have recently begun to hate my roommates solely for the fact that they refuse to play any games other than Marvel vs. Capcom 2 on Dreamcast. In my efforts to convince them that there are OTHER games out there, I brought up all the games they should play, giving me a total sense of nostalgia. I used to be seriously obsessed about fighting games on the Dreamcast, and Soul Calibur and MvC2 were like my gateway drugs. I tried to convince them to switch to Mark of the Wolves, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, Plasma Sword, Third Strike (SF3), or Last Blade, but they will have none of it. This got me to thinking, why have fighting games fallen so far out of favor for modern gamers? Is it because they have become too competitive and tournament-obsessed?
