I'm going to have Doomsday Warrior's horrible "doo-deedle doo-deedle deedily-dee" music stuck in my head all day now.

@dasakamov: *ugh*, yes. To draw on a phrase Ryan used once, the only thing that's going to get that music out of my head at this point is a bullet.

Take a look at these hands!

Anyway, wow, Doomsday Warrior. I rented that a whole bunch, super happy to see it undergo scientific review. Some of the character designs and the weird throws-that-are-kinda-supers mechanic have really stuck with me, though at the end of the day its scientifically determined position on the list is pretty dead-on.

In RoF 19, "The Science" put Sonic the Fighters above Deadliest Warriors. Did peer review bump it down to the bottom of the list?

This rank for Final Fight Revenge isn't valid since they didn't see Haggar's spinning pile driver from space. I can't believe the science has failed me...

Rough but accurate. The rankings both games took were fair. I wouldn't have it another way. That said I am also in the camp that believes Mr. Mayor super would have bumped it up a few notches. But science is Science where you can only experiment a bunch of times and not endlessly (that would take them another investment/grant)

Now there seems to be *two* discrepancies with this list: KOF '94 was meant to be #19 with Battle Fantasia under it at #20, yet they seemed to have switched in-between episodes.

And Sonic the Fighters is still considered the worst when it should be Deadliest Warrior: Legends.

How can I take *any* of this science seriously with these list mistakes??? :P

Something tells me that Sonic The Fighters is going to be at the bottom of the list in perpetuity, which is a shame because Sonic the Fighters isn't even that bad. It's bad, but not the worst fighting game ever.

I went to an event in a local theater yesterday, where they showed Street Fighter: The Movie and Mortal Kombat, and had a bunch of TVs and consoles set up in the lobby with various fighting games.

They had Fight Club set up, and I now believe that it should be much lower on the list.

Jeff's right about having Sonic the Fighters in the last spot... (and I know i'm no scientist but it never should have never been placed there in the first place) its messing up the lower end of the list :( It might work if it sits above Dragon Ball Z and be a gate keeper to the trash end of the list

I'm not a fighting game fan, but I still don't understand Sonic the Fighters position on the list. Several of these games look so much worse, especially one of today's.

I haven't finished watching this episode yet, but the gameplay on display for Doomsday Warrior @17:36 makes me really hope there's a contender for new worst game.

Science can never be wrong, and whoever decides the first science is correct forever and it can't be changed.

Now if you excuse me I have some readings of the luminiferous aether to tend to...

I see the researchers felt that last time they studied games that were too good for them. Don't let Jeff get the games in the library!

Edit: I think Edi E.'s headbutt move is just straight up Rainbow Mika's crouching medium punch, Ben.

Final Fight Revenge looks pretty decent, all things considered Top 20 is a huge win for it.
