I recently started a fun little internet fighting game where you can make these little guys who fight each other (for no apparent reason) and gain powerups and such. It's automated, so there's no learning curve to speak of. Just watch them get stronger and more impressive.
Just go here: http://mumblin.mybrute.com/
...then you can create your own fighter and watch them go! :) You don't even have to login or anything. Just save your address and go back whenever you want. You can enter them in tournaments as well.
