So below, gnash your teeth at my list of the greatest fighting games of all time. If you have something to say, the comment box awaits you."

Nothing is better than Killer Instinct. While not as deep as Virtua Figher just ten times more fun!

Come on Rare, give us some Killer Instinct 3!

wu-tang sholin style is my number one fighting game (also seen in my avatar) and still is, that game is too raw man. thee best.

... but with all list, I disagree on a few points.

I prefer the Alpha series when it comes to Street Fighter, not just because of gameplay but also because of roster and style/design.

I feel Soul Calibur deserves to be higher up on the list.

And Def Jam; Fight for New York is one of the best and most fun fighters EVER. Yes it has some flaws, but that's mostly in the story-mode (which is still much much better than most fighters' single player experience).
This game has so many different characters, and you can create your own fighter, so many different and fun, cool, OTT moves, and the battles are always spectacular and exciting. Great great fighter. And this is coming from a guy who isnt even all that into 'Hip', nor 'Hop'.

Primal Rage was gawdawfull btw, and Killer Instinct had good gameplay but only a few interesting characters.

I would have liked to include VF5 in my list, but there's no option in-game to turn off the horrible HORRIBLE english voices for some of the characters, like Leon. So if Sega couldnt bother putting that simple but much needed option in (just allow us to choose japanese voices from the menu!), I cant be bothered with including that game in my list!

Surprised Super Smash Bros isnt on the list btw. I'm not a fan myself, but it always gets raved about ALOT by so many people, you'd expect to see it in a top 10.

that def jam one was good Wu tang shaolin style too. That newer def jam icon was so dissapointing only played the demo but I was mad enough not to buy or rent it.

PoSTedUP3628d ago

oh s*** son, you said it b4 me! XD. hell yea wu-tang shaolin style is still the best imo. love it.

INehalemEXI3628d ago

I mean without that game we'd still be stuck on MK and SF 3-4 hit combo's. Nothing feels better then the echoing Ultra, ultra, ultra.

My all-time favorite 1-on-1 fighting series is Guilty Gear. My friends and I are current duking it out on GG XX Accent Core.

Although I enjoy Marvel vs Capcom 2, I think it gets WAAAAAAAY too much praise. The same goes for Street Fighter II. I've been playing fighters in arcades and on home consoles since the first SFII, so I'd like to say that I kinda know what I'm talking about. Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike is vastly superior (and a far more technical game) to SFII.

Sometimes I wonder how many fighting games video game journalists still play. MvC2 does not stand the test of time and I don't think there are many fighting enthusiasts who still play it on a regular basis.
