The All Time Greatest Wrestling Games

Esteban Cuevas of Metal Arcade writes:

Remember in the late 90′s when professional wrestling became extremely popular again? I do. I was a big fan of the WWF back then, now called the WWE. My favorite wrestler was The Rock. He was powerful, yet agile. Although I loved watching Raw every Monday and eventually Smackdown on Thursdays, the main reason why I was into wrestling was the games. Although at the time I focused on the WWF titles, I grew curious and not much later I tried the WCW games. Both companies made incredible games and their respective developers did a good job to distinguish the two; however I will say that THQ is the king of wrestling games. There’s a reason that they’ve made every WWE game for over a decade. Regardless of developer, wrestling games are an important segment of video game history and was a new genre for the medium. Some say wrestling games are fighting games or sports games. I think they’ve created their own genre.

I loved No Mercy the most. I would love an HD remake of that. Hell, I'd love to see a HD COllection of all the PS2 games as well

Omg! WcW/NWO Revenge! <3 Best wrestling game ever. Closely followed by No Mercy.

What about WWF Wrestlemania 2000? It was the predecessor to No Mercy and should at least get a honorable mention. It's funny just a day ago I was telling my girlfriend how I drove an hour away in the middle of the night just to find a 24 hour Walmart that had it in stock.

I didn't write the article, but if I had, it would definitely be in there! I remember buying it day 1 at Toys R Us when I was like 11.
