What did you say about my mum?! Grab your pads lads as we’re gonna mess you up. Debate us, one on one. Which is the best fighting game yeah?! Which is the most brutal yeah?! Which is most fairly balanced yeah?! Which one affects our self esteem most causing us to be overtly aggressive yeah?! Let bash this one out, royal rumble style. Square go like.

So what have we got. We’ll throw the first punches. We’ve got the Nintendo character bonanza that is Super Smash Bros. On the other side of the coin we’ve got the original Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale (where’d they get that idea from). We’ve got crazy hairstyles and fighting jaguars with Tekken. We’ve got beating the crap out of a car with Street Fighter. We’ve got inter universe mayhem with Marvel vs. Capcom. We’ve got all the DC comics you could shake a stick at with Injustice. We’ve got more weapons than Snake has in his leotard with SoulCalibur. We’ve got the spine ripping brutality that is Mortal Combat. We’ve got even crazier hair and screaming galore with Dragon Ball Z. We’ve got… a lot to choose from.

We could do this all day. But then where would be the fun of finding out other titles that you guys love? What’s your favourite fighting game and why? What is it about it that makes you want to sink hours into it to learn that perfect combo? What makes you feel like the biggest badass when you beat the living crap out of your mates on it? Mess us up old school with your thoughts and opinions in the comment below!

I have played Tekken, Bloody Roar, Mortal Kombat but I liked Dead or Alive gameplay much more flexible and I am not talking about girls and their assets. The 3 types of attacks Strike --> Grab --> Counter and much more movement flexibility for controlling character made me think the gameplay is actually much fun than other fighters.

I think that Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a great fighting game but the most time i spent in a fighting game was Street Fighter Alpha 3 on psone (and on pc :P), i totally erased my fingerprints and broke two gamepads on that game alone lol and Ryu, Fei Long, Gen, are my favorite characters :D


Honorable mention: Bloody Road II, Jenny ;) and Long are my favorite characters.

Defo Mortal Kombat for me, always loved the brutalities and fatalities and simple blood and gore fighting

I always loved mortal kombat, but the latest iteration felt so bland and there was so much DLC that should have been in the actual game itself that it totally ruined the name of the game.

We needs a poll to acurately judge this one the website. Though no need because street fighter is without a doubt the best.

SC5 did suck. SC4 had a lot of balance issues, but the potential was there. The fifth couldn't give a rat's ass of the fourth's potential. Worst part about it is they broke Yoshimitsu. :(

What's up with the tag man, Witcher 3?? FGC should have to grow on PC now, I love fighting games, and it's Mortal Kombat btw, and not to forget King of Fighters and Virtua Fighter. Sorry I just can't hold myself if it's about Fighting games.

I really liked Smash Bros Brawl. It's also one of the few fighting games I've played.
