The Top 7… Best fighting game characters

A fighting game can have gorgeous graphics, heart-pounding music, and rock-solid mechanics, but without interesting characters, none of it really matters. The ideal roster must be filled with varied, memorable, and appealing character designs that will attract gamers of all types, no matter their playstyle. It’s not uncommon for fighting game fans to develop a powerful affinity towards their favorite fighter, remaining loyal to them throughout a series’ long history and encouraging those who’ve taken on the same character choice mantle. (3DS, Darkstalkers, PC, PS3, Street Fighter, Tekken, Xbox 360)

Doesn't have Guy. Otherwise it was a pretty decent list. Not that these lists hold any kind of value whatsoever.

Slayer is basically the strongest character in the franchise, he owns all characters easily, my favorite tough is Eddie/Zato-1.

Definitely Ryu. He's got more jocks copycats and haters than anyone in the genre

Fun list. Enjoyed the character descriptions, and I've got no qualms with the selections.

Yoshimitsu's great, but I'm having a lot of fun with Dragunov lately in tekken. It's nice to play as a guy who's moves look vicious, but practical.
