With Mortal Kombat and Super Street Fighter IV: AE being released recently and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, SF x Tekken, and Tekken Tag 2 on the horizon. I decided to see what other community members favorite Fighting Game series is there favorite. Even though I love Mortal Kombat, I gotta say that 3rd Strike is my absolute favorite and can't wait for it to come out.
If you have a particular favorite, shout it out in the forum or if your favorite isn't on the list, let it be known.
I'm not surprised by all the MK votes. Kind of expected, but also weird despite its rocky start, what with launching with laggy online and having constant damage value tweaks being patched under players noses every week or so. Maybe its a sign that Netherrealms is doing the right things to their game.
I played a grand shit-ton of Soul Calibur II so thats what gets my vote. Too bad Namcos never going to come anywhere near topping it.
Loved Tekken 2 back in the day, but haven't played a Tekken game since Tekken Tag Tournament for PS2. Not sure what the series is like today. Played a ton of Street Fighter 2 Turbo as well and MK 1 & 2. Not sure which one gets the most love, I can't decide between them.
Guilty Gear. The times me and my friends had playing that, the characters, gorgeous sprites, crazy attacks, fantastic music... I really could never find anything wrong with it, except maybe some of the ridiculous challenge bosses. Gold I-No is a pain in the ass.
My first fighting game was Tekken 3, and even though it was fun back then, at this point I really can't enjoy 3d fighters like that and VF at all. I really prefer Street Fighter, because it was the first fighting game that I took seriously and it's always been the game bringing the hype train. Smash bros is great too even though a lot of people say it's not a fighting game.
I'm kind of bored of fighting games in general atm though, because I've been playing way too many MOBAs so my execution is through the floor. 3SO looks really good though, so I need to get back into it before that releases.
So many fighting games I love. I can't say I have played or liked any series more than Street Fighter, but that being said I was a big Virtua Fighter fan back in the day. Fighting Vipers was also great. Mortal Kombat is also great and Dead of Alive still calls me back.
I voted Dead or Alive because I wanted to give it some props, but it's equal in my mind with Soul Calibur. I suck at fighting games and you can button-mash your way through both of these and have a good time. I know there is a deeper game in both if you're willing to learn it, but that's not me. I prefer smacking the CPU around for a bit then doing something else. That's all I need to satisfy my infrequent fighting urge.
The only one I've ever cared for has been Mortal Kombat. It is simple to grasp which is great for me who doesn't invest too much time into one game. It also helps that I grew up with MK. Favorite fighter has always been Sub-Zero although in the new MK he kinda sucks due to his freeze being slowed down.
