One of these days I'm going to lose a pair of headphones to this website.

I would like to recommend Zero Divide on the PS1 for consideration.

Yo, so drunk, so happy they're deciding this. Jason X Jeff fo' life. Rock 'em and shock 'em.

The very concept of this feature is flawed when everyone already knows the best fighting game of all time is Bloody Roar 3 followed closely by Bloody Roar 2. Will be curious to where below them other games rank though.

Dan popping up on this from time to time would be pretty interesting as well considering how competitive he is.

It would be truly hilarious if this was the only episode and Battle Arena Toshinden 3 just stood at #1 for all time.

But seriously, even though I don't have any interest in fighting games, I'm kind of morbidly interested in just seeing how long this goes. My guess is it'll probably fizzle out with a bizarre and random assortment of games having been covered, with many of the most popular franchises/games still missing? I mean, actually covering a comprehensive collection of even the most well-liked games would probably require a level of dedication on the level of an ultra-long Endurance Run.

@canadianmath: I believe so; Johnny V mentions it in the John, John and Disney Infinity 3.0 video from E3.

Yay, new feature! Jeff and Jason! Life is good!

I always like how jeff and jason don't say button presses, they just say "hurricane kick" or "fireball" and immediately know what to do.

@canadianmath: Yep, he also said he's cut out almost all fast food...good for him! He always was a fast food/chain guy so good to see he's making better eating choices!

This is amazing :) Guys you should do more of these but different game genre like best FPS best racing game and so on

Edited by HighPriest

Best fighting game ever? Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire. Question answered, don't know that we need to see any other contenders.

I wear headphones and therefore my ears died during the explosion transition. Maybe they should start doing those transitions without sound cause it's not pleasant.

BURNING FINGER!!!

Yes!

Posted by BaconGames

I'm instantly in love with this feature.

Edited by ptys

Now Jason has come on board as a fighting game enthusiast, maybe there's room in the budget for you guys to go to EVO?

Yeah, if we are just getting down to it, its probably 3rd Strike, KOF 98/00, MVC2, or CVS 2

First fighting game I played was Uchi Mata on the Speccy.

I'm expecting a top ten finish...

So until they switched to 60 fps I was wondering how anyone could think this was a good fighting game. Looked so slow and clunky. Then with the press of a button the game looked horrendous but fun to play. Kind of which more console games had an option like this to force the game to look bad but run at 60 fps. For a lot of twitch based multiplayer games especially I have to imagine it would be worth doing.

Posted by Amafi

I can't wait to see where Sonic the Fighters ends up on the list.

Also if they give Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown the #1 spot like they should.

Posted by ArtMaddox

I hope they play the hot garbage that is Criticom for the Sega Saturn. Better yet, Battle Monsters. Play some Battle Monsters.

Posted by Domar_DK

Hopefully they won't forget a classic like Iron & Blood: Warriors of Ravenloft.

Also Konami's Kensei: Sacred Fist. I actually kind of enjoyed that game back in the day. I doubt it has aged well though. They should also check out the first Dynasty Warriors.

Great new feature.

Posted by DekuShrub

@ffenix: Are you using some sort of science or system to determine that opinion, because Giant Bomb is. We will have to wait until they rank Clay Fighter to discover which is trashier.

This is the video series I've always wanted.

Let me know when we get to Def Jam: Fight for NY.

Posted by FLStyle

Best new series of 2015!

Posted by FissionMailed10

A day later, i get the title pun.......

Posted by nonekjr

Please never again put up a video with that much of an audio spike. Some of us have hearing issues and that shit can easily ruin a day. Do you not run compressors anymore?

Posted by Dizzyhippos

I cant wait for Psychic Force 2012

Edited by Stevesonaplane

bushido blade or poy poy are the best fighting games

i'm being a little facetious, cause i know there are better fighting games out there, but who remembers poy poy?

Edited by paulunga

I haven't watched this yet, but I'm gonna say this probably isn't their best fighting game of all time. Or top 100.

Some contenders, though: 3rd Strike, Garou, KoF 98', Guilty Gear XX #Reload

I'm wondering if they ever get to Fighter's Destiny (2). Those games are weeeeird, but also really technical and good once you get into them.

ARRRRGH BANG!!! around 2 mins in.

Haha yep. I'm sat here trying to sneakily watch this while im at work and my speakers nearly just blew up!

That's not Rise of the Robots.

Posted by Lelcar

Man, I've been anticipating a feature like this ever since Jason was brought on board. A year later, but I'm happy it has finally come. Between this and The Old Games Show, these are the Jeff features that I've always wanted.

I loved Kensei

"I'll NEVER forget this!" Put it on the box!

This is a great idea, but I can't help but think this will go into some dark places real fast.
