I had a small debate on Twitter the other day about which fighter was the best, so I decided I would sit down and compile my list of the greatest.
10) King of Fighters XIII:
I actually had this tied with KOF 98′, this one wins over it only cause it’s the current gen version.
9) Tekken 6:
8) Virtua Fighter 5:
7) Marvel vs SNK 2:
6)Soul Calibur IV:
5) Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition:
They went back to the 2D format and showed us why we loved Mortal in the first place. A lot of people bug out because of Freddie but I think he’s corny. *shoulder shrug* Believe it or not the Story mode is pretty sick too… basically rebooted the entire timeline.
4) Dead or Alive 4:
I would go ahead and put DOA5 here because I know what kinda product Tecmo is running over there. But since its not out, I’ll be fair. Not a lot of negatives with this entry, destructive environments, 3-4 part throws, a very easy countering system… GREATNESS.
3)Street Fighter Alpha 3:
The entire Alpha series was top-notch but 3 gets the nod because of roster depth. (noticing a trend here?) Plus they had the thing where you could pick which mode your character was, essentially playing with your fighter plucked straight from any of the 3 Alphas.
2)Marvel vs Capcom 2:
I still remember the first time i brought this and my Dreamcast over to my boys spot. Smh. BLEW THEIR MINDS. Now understand, I didn’t put 3 here because compared to this its shitty. Bigger roster! If part 3 would have dropped and had like 100 characters I would have been pleased. You can’t have a fighter with like 60 characters (I’m guessing), then drop a sequel with only 30… Its hustling backwards.
1)Street Fighter 4 AE (the entire series!):
Samurai Showdown V:
BlazBlu / Guilty Gear:
