Is it possible to get away with a decent fighting game that doesn't have the best animations?

Alright so I’m working on a 2.5D fighting game and I don’t have any funds to commission someone so I’ve decided to start learning how to animate myself although I’ve realized that this is a lot tougher than I thought especially because I don’t think fighting animations are very beginner-friendly lol so I probably won’t be making anything good for a while and it got me thinking for a game that kind of requires good and smooth animations is it even possible to get away with making a decent game with like 1 week worth of experience in animating.

Here’s an animation I just tried to make like it’s obviously not great, but I don’t think it’s bad?

I’ve seen front page games with animations that look like they were made by a 5 year-old. As long as the game itself is good, it could get popular.
