Fighting games are back, but these once-prominent franchises sadly are not.
I approve of this list.
Me too! If Killer Instinct wasn't on here I was going to c-c-c-c-c-combo! my laptop. Also, much love for Fighting Vipers. Dang the 90's had some good fightin' games. Anyone else have the Saturn Darlkstalkers import with the expansion cart?
Man Battle Arena Toshinden was one of my first fighting series ever and one of the only fighting series I was any good at. BAT3 is one of my favourite games ever too, I really wish it would return someday.
Very good list, but i would replace Primal Rage with BLOODY ROAR! Also i would mention some of the fantastic fighting games that appeared on the Jaguar and 3DO!
Nice list, any of those would be welcomed back.
Tobal is EPIC! took me awhile for me that the art design is from Dragon Ball Z
be arsed with 10 page crap...
This gen need a bloody roar game!
I'd have Rival Schools first, as it was the game that made me like fighting games. Then would be the Toshinden games. After that, Killer Instinct/Bloody Roar. Then I could care less.
Truly surprised Samurai Shodown or Last Blade 2 isn't on the list but glad to B.A.T, Bushido Blade and Fighting Vipers are mentioned.
Happy to see Rival Schools on the list. It and Bust a Groove are the two games I regret having sold more than any other. Maybe Ehrgeiz, too. But seriously - that game was sick and remains my favorite fighter to this day. Bat swiiiiiiiiiiiing!!
