Dawud, you play a nice game. It is however clear that 2 minute games are in no way relevant tests of systems like in this case kings indian attack KIA if it is one. Many mistakes were made by white like not taking undefended pawns or giving away knights... Good fun and good games in 2 minutes, but not something that will help you get a correct opinion on these fianchetto openings. A fianchetto is often a safe house and not more vulnerable than the straight 3 pawns. Keep digging man :-)
Oh man, not another anti-KID thread. This place is full of them!
do you have some example games?
also im aware of fianchetto but what is a fianchetto combined with Nf6/f3 and 0-0 called? I thought that was called a kings indian. I didnt think kings indian was restricted to a queens pawn opening line.
The king's indian is a defence to 1.d4. Although there are many defences which use the setup Nf6+g6+Bg7 they aren't all king's indians.
I think the biggest difficulty I have as white facing the King's Indian is just how many variations I need to prepare for. Black has many options and as white you need to be prepared for all of them.

Yeah, if you're serious about learning this stuff, stop playing 2-min!
