I may not jump into fighting games that often now, but one of the few this-gen ones I've tried that turned out to be one of my favorites games of '09 was BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger.

Strange how little is mentioned about that one.

it's not strange when they pick (the still excellent) SSMB , the still good Dissidia and the mediocre Soul Calibur 4 among all things , and can't even differenciate tekken 6 from tag 2 . it's not even a farcry away from picking Naruto or DBZ at this point

They probably didnt even bother with KOF XIII either

"Tekken 6 was an absolute stunner with breathtaking level designs – including a cameo appearance from Snoop Dog on his own level. "

Move along nothing to see here ... one of the guy can't even identify the game properly and it's obvious some got no clue about fighting games . It's tekken Tag 2 by the way that got a Snoop dog stage

What the?? Thanks for the heads up, i wouldn't wanna give a click to a HORRIBLE article that doesn't differ T6 from Tag 2.
Regardless. Tekken Tag 2 is th best fighter this gen, without re-releases and updates, a full game that i've been playing since it came out, and im still not on the levels of those in the ranked match, but i can hold my ground with Lars and Slim Bob and Miguel.

Persona 4 Arena deserves to be in that list. It did EVERYTHING so well including being a proper sequel to Persona 4.
Instead they list the OK SSB (Don't get me wrong, the game is fun, but no where those games mentioned)

I haven't tried SC4 but i had played SC5 and im not sure if i wanna go back into the series since SC5 was my first one.

DOA5U was a solid fighter that gets accomadated with T&A all the time.

Yeah the game listed are for most part excellent , but it's a bad list given the limited spots .

It's as if i expected to read a best fps top pick , but half the spots were wasted on stuff like Skyrim , Deus Ex

Don't bother with SC4, it was terrible. I recommend playing SC3, it was my favorite in the series and it had the amazing Chronicle of the Sword mode.
Hopefully we'll see a HD treatment of it.

Id recommend Soul Calibur 4, its not as good as Tekken Tag 2 but its a hell of a lot better than SC5, i dont know what they were thinking with that game, really didnt meet my expectations, hopefully the next purchasable one will be worth getting.

TTT2. There is no other for me.

BlazBlue was king of the genre last gen, but Guilty Gear is going to make a comeback!!!!
DCfan  +   229d ago
If you're refering to the 2D fighters i agree, but the king has to be TTT2.

What does everyone think of Marvel vs. Capcom 3??
Baka-akaB  +   229d ago
The game itself is excellent . There is a reason it's always the most popular in Tourneys along SF4 . It's bad corporate and executive decisions , aggravating stuff about licensing and dlc that clouds and sour it .

ANd of course the online for the original MvC3 was bad . It was way better in UMVC3 , but still run of the mill SF4 level netcode .

I loved Marvel vs Capcom 3 but the winner hands down has to be Tekken Tag 2, no other fighting game can seem to grip me as much as that does.

SSBB, the only REAL fighting game. DOA5, a close second.

King of Fighters 13, not 12.
