With Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Mortal Kombat both coming out, is this the best year for fighting games in recent memory?
As a guy that only plays fighting games very, very occasionally, it's pretty remarkable that I have two fighting games on my list this year (MvC3 and Mortal Kombat). I think you can definitely make the case that this will be one of the highest profile years for fighting games since the glory days of arcade games.
Yea I agree too. MvC3 and Mortal Kombat are shaping up to great games.
It's hard for fighting games to get any kind of recognition for "The Year of". If one of the Tekken vs Street Fighter Games comes out later on then maybe, but this is the Year of the Shooter. Killzone 3, Resistance 3, SOCOM 4, Call of Duty, Battlefield 3, RAGE, Crysis 2, Gears of War 3, The Conduit 2, Bulletstorm, Brink, Fear 3, and more. And while not technically shooters there's also Uncharted 3 and Dead Space 2. And there's probable titles like Bioshock 3 that might make it for this year.
