Recently purchased a PS3 and the only game that I have to play with it at the moment is NBA 2k11. I've been looking into getting a new game and think that I might want a fighting one.
Best Fighting Game on PS3?
Depends on what you like ofc :) I would say Super Street fighter 4, but you can wait a couple of months and buy arcade edition on disc.
Marvel is fast as hell and a bit to much for my taste, but it is still a fun game to play among friends:)
Think maybe some other ppl here can say more on Mk as my copy still haven't shown up yet.
Edit: or buy ssf4 now and get the AE dlc for 15 bucks:)
Depends on your experience with fighting games. If you're new to the genre, I would highly recommend getting BlazBlue: Continuum Shift. It offers a handy tutorial feature that will teach you the mechanics and going-ons in the game, as well as common fighting game mechanics/lingo that is seen in other fighting games such as SF. It really helped make fighting games more accessible to me. Also, the netcode is pretty superior to anything else that is currently offered. The community here takes advantage of that and hosts weekly Fight Nights for it that welcome all skill levels. Its a great way to improve and learn new things. You should be able to find Continuum Shift for around $20 now, since it has been out for awhile.
Mortal Kombat is a ton of fun and relatively easy to pick up and just start having fun. With loads of features and unlockables, this game is a great value.
Arcana Heart 3, if you can get past the all-girl roster and other negative stereotypes associated with it because of its presentation, you will actually get a great fighting game with a ton of depth to it and unique characters. Good luck learning it though, there are a lot of things going on that you may have to understand to become competent. Unfortunately, you'd have to wait for PSN come back up, because it is a downloadable title only for $30. Luckily, it uses the same netcode that is used in BlazBlue. So the online experience would be a positive one. When PSN comes back, I plan on starting a Fight Night for this title as well.
This man speaks the truth
If I had to say one I'd say grab Mortal Kombat it's great with friends.
However, if you're friendless, or want to spend a good month learning it get street fighter. Then you could even buy another game cause it's so cheap now lol
SUUUUUUUUPER STREEET FIGHTEER FOOOOOUUUUUR
It depends on what you're looking for. If you want world class, high skill stuff, Super Street Fighter 4 is probably the way to go. If you're more casual, MK9 is a ton of fun, perfectly competent, and easy to pick up. If you want totally crazy, BlazBlue probably has you covered.
In my experiences I've found that BlazBlue is awesome with friends. Like, crazy awesome. It's a lot more flexible than both Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat yet still has a very strict side to it if you want to get deep into it.
Here is a list of great ones though:
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift
Virtua Fighter 5
Marvel vs. Capcom series
IMO Arcana Heart 3 looks like a pile of steaming shit so I'd stay away from it, but that's just me. I don't really think the PS3 has any exclusive fighters besides that one though so it's basically the same as other platforms. And by other platforms I mean the 360 lol, minus Dead or Alive.
my fave is tekken 6. dont hate me on this and i aint lying, but its the one but its the most appealing to me. it depends on personal taste. its also one of the most popular fighting games in asia, maybe 2nd to street fighter 4. i also like its mechanics the best of all fighting games I play. of course it cant please everyone.
As many have said, it really depends. If you're new to the genre or just want a significant amount of single player content I'd go with MK. Otherwise I'd say that SSFIV, while slightly tricky to pick up, is vastly superior in terms of core gameplay, depth and character balance. Or if you're more of a fan of 3D fighters I see no reason not to check out either Soul Calibur IV or Tekken 6. They should be extremely cheap by now.
When I read the topic, it caught me a little off guard to see your first sentence say
"Recently purchased a PS3 and the only game that I have to play with it at the moment is NBA 2k11"
when skimming over it. I was gonna say.. man is Ron Artest throwing elbows? .. then it got me thinking.. We need a remake of
