Best Wrestling Games Of All Time

FruityGamers:

With the release of WWE '13 well past us, and the fans having had time to experience the game, let's see how all of the wrestling games thus far stack up! This will be the top 3 wrestling games of all time! These will be the ones that truly stood out, stood apart, and stood tall! They revolutionized the genre, made every game that came after want to be them, and will remain in our hearts forever! (PC, PS3, WWE 13, Xbox 360)

My top wrestling games are
WCW vs the world ps1- Introduced the game engine that would become WCW vs NWO, WWF No Mercy
2. WWF Warzone ps1- Not a great game but introduced full enterances and was first WWF 3d game really revolutionary for the time but insane button combinations DOSENT STAND THE TEST OF TIME
3. WWF No Mercy N64- You can group all the N64- games here (WCW world tour, WCW vs NWO, WWF Wrestlemania 2000) but I give a slight edge because of the roster
4. WWF Wrestlefest Arcade- Just awesome so simple 2 button but fun as it can get

Sega's own Giant Gram 2000 (All Japan Pro Wrestling 3) for Dreamcast. That one was and is still a fun game. I still play it with my friends on some weekends. Lots of laughs and tons o'fun.

I think that moreover comes from the options that HCTP had compared to newer titles.

Being able to freely move around to different backstage areas was the greatest part of HCTP in my opinion. You weren't just restricted to set locations & dynamics backstage were much better than they are now.

Fighting in Times Square always made my day better. Was fun to climb up high above the street and fight it out. F5'ing someone from up there and sending them through a car, only to take the opportunity to Five Star Frog Splash your opponent from way up high always felt gratifying.

I always thought the double button counter system was better too. Having one button to counter grapples and one button to counter strikes made the player consider what the computer or their opponent was going to do next rather than just spamming one button and hoping for the best.

Plus getting your CAW to max stats took work. You didn't just throw together a CAW & Move Set then allocate stats. After having your CAW & Move Set in place, you had to go play matches to earn the stats your character had. While it took forever to max out characters that way (100 was top stat possible unless you had an unknown gender character to which you could get them to 101)getting to that point meant you put a lot of work into that character, giving one a better sense of pride in their CAWs.

I really wish THQ'd drop the new bullshit titles they're producing in excess of two to three years in advance for systems that aren't even out yet or completely confirmed and remake the classics. Give people a HD HCTP or earlier titles and watch how they sell compared to new ones. Add online and you've got an even better experience that wasn't there before. If they could find a way to add in things like custom titles & such from newer titles they'd have the solid product WWE games could've been all along.

SvsR 2007 was the best for me, its gameplay changed wrestling games forever.

Ugh. As soon as the author had to mention the whole Attitude Mode multiple times as a saving factor for WWE '13 being number 2 they lost all credibility in my opinion.

WWE '13 is one of the worst wrestling titles I've seen in some time. Even the original SvR was more polished and well rounded than '13 and that game was just terrible after coming from a generation of games such as Smackdown! HCTP, Wrestlemania 2000, and others from previous years.
