I play a lot of ranked League of Legends, and just started diving into DOTA 2. While I love both games, and don't mind using team work, I have this weird urge to play a hella competitive 1v1. Just my skill to improve. Can't blame anyone but me and my own misplays.

I own SC:HOTS, and SSF4:AE, and those are the only two games I can legitimately think of right now .-.

Can anyone toss any other games I can't think of off-hand? COH2 comes to mind, but I personally didn't like the first one.

@confirm4crit: The new Company of Heroes has pretty much been made by the Dawn of war 2 team. It's a different style of real time strategy, but their games have a strong 1v1 scene.

I rather like AirMech, but most strategy games would do.

Quake is fun, but it's more fun with ridiculously large amounts of players rather than just 1v1. Try a 64-128 player free for all deathmatch server, and you'll never go back.

Try the Banner Saga ... I´ve already spent over 80 hours on it and still enjoy it a lot

Okay, maybe it's a little too early to say, given that it's not out yet, but...

Starcraft, as in Starcraft 1. I played a lot of Volleyball for the Genesis with my friend, but that game looks like an NES game.

I forgot about AirMech, I should try that again some times.

I am hyped for DiveKick xD

I'd still go with Street Fighter, dawg. It's SO GOOD.

Quake III Arena

I wanted to get into a Quake game, but Quake Live was dead. Is Q3A still active? Server browsers say otherwise. I might pick up the new Rise of the Triad just for the MP.

I like a lot of 1v1 games but old faithful has to be Quake.

The only 1v1 games I can take serious competitively are StarCraft and deep fighting games. (so not Mortal Kombat or Injustice)

Chess is said to be pretty good.

As is Go.

It's probably been dead for years, to be honest.

Mortal Kombat, any of the Total War games and maybe a sports game?

Beat me to it. Do I think it's the best 1v1 game of all time? No idea, but I fucking love Windjammers.

#39 Posted by TyCobb (1975 posts) -

Lethal Leagyue.

And of course Quake III or UT.

#40 Edited by Itwastuesday (984 posts) -

Breakers Revenge is the correct answer.

A legitimately great fighting game with the "right" wrong audio and visual direction.

(also i didn't wanna shock anyone so i left this down here but it's the best fighting game ever made)

#41 Posted by davidwitten22 (1708 posts) -

Starcraft Brood War, in my opinion

#42 Posted by MistaSparkle (2148 posts) -

NBA Jam has been some of the most fun 1v1 multiplayer I've played in a while.

This thread is making me want to pick up SSFIV in the next sale, though I absolutely suck at fighting games. But I guess if I had to choose one to be great at it would be Street Fighter.

Lethal League.

Fifa! Dota 2 hasn't inspired the rage or joy that Fifa is able to, although I can see it could do one day. Fifa is an intensely enjoyable game if you take time to get half good at it!

#50 Posted by gamefreak9 (2419 posts) -

HOTS. SSF4 also but SSF4 has much less strategy in it, whilst I would say SC requires reflexes, planning, control, and strategy.
