Best Fighting Game 2012 | GameRevolution

GR: This year's spread of fighting titles all seemed like crazy ideas: PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale was all about Sony trying to make Super Smash Bros.; Persona 4 Arena makes a 2D Blazblue fighter out of all of the RPG characters from Persona 4 (and some from Persona 3); Street Fighter X Tekken transforms 3D characters into 2D characters, which shouldn't have worked but it did anyway; and Skullgirls only had eight female characters but it still was a competent tag-team fighter. Still, only one nominee has made any real headway in the hardcore fighting community. (PS3, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Wii U, Xbox 360)

Wooo, Tekken! That game is amazing...

I get that, yeah. I'm a Persona 4 man myself but I think that might be partially because I love the Persona universe/characters/art.

P4A is great, I own it as well... Though there's simply not enough in terms of stages and music... It was a little disappointing in that regard. The combat itself is spot-on though. :]

There were no fighters that I really enjoyed.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 does seem to have everything to make it the top game this year. Skullgirls has a good standing for it and is quite beautifully crated seems like it's one of those games that can only get better.

I'm missing a online TAG mode in TTT2, wish they would have included it.
Then I could have played with a friend or girlfriend vs others online.
It's been a good year for fighting games though, bought DoA5, TTT2 myself.
Gonna pick up P4A when it's released in Europe as well.

I'm sure you know this but there is 'couch' tag play online. You can play with your friend against people online on the same console. I would love to be able to play fully online with my buddy too. Harada stated that synchronizing between four online players, each from different part of the world, would be a nightmare. Lagfest to say the least.

DOA 5 for me
Arai  +   830d ago
@ boing1, no I didn't as I haven't had time to play the game much.
Thank you for pointing that out, bubble+
