Tetsu Deinonychus Mach-2 03-08-2006 01:08 PM
I'd like to know everyone's top-ten favourite Fighting Games, and Top-Ten favourite characters, and any-other Top-Ten Fighting-Game list anyone can think of.

Here's my list for games, in order from favourite to 10th favourite...

1.) Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact
2.) Three: A New Generation of Street Fighter
3.) Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
4.) Capcom Vs. SNK 2
5.) Super Street Fighter II Turbo
6.) Soul Calibur
7.) Virtua Fighter 2
8.) Mortal Kombat II
9.) Fatal Fury 2
10.) Power Stone

In case you're wondering, I consider "Brawlers" a seperate genre, and that's why Double Dragon isn't on the list (Though it's my #1 fav. Brawler)


Now, Characters. Again, from favourite to 10th favourite...

1.) Ryu (Street Fighter)
2.) Terry Bogard (SNK)
3.) Mitsurugi (Soul Calibur)
4.) Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat)
5.) Yun (Street Fighter)
6.) Gouki A.K.A. "Akuma" (Street Fighter)
7.) Ken (Street Fighter)
8.) Scorpion (Mortal Kombat)
9.) Kagemaru (Virtua Fighter)
10.) Blanka (Street Fighter)


So, what're your lists?

I'm solely a Gamecube guy, so my fighter games are limited. I'm not a super big fan of them because button mashing and huge combos with complex patterns aren't really my thing. Without online and lots of friends, I'm left in the dust. Crying

My favorite fighter:

Gundam Wing: Endless Duel.

My Tallgeese used to be demi-godlike online. I'm open for challenges to regain my elite skills.
Mike 03-08-2006 07:04 PM
For a good long time, I was absolutely unstoppable as Roy in Super Samsh Bros. Melee.

And I always good as Link and Mitsurugi in Soul Calibur II.

Oh yeah, back in the day, I spammed Sub-Zero's freezing move unmercifully.

That's about it...I don't really have a top 10 since I was never that into fighting games. I usually sucked at them.

The point of all fighter games is being able to memorize better than your opponent. Hence I fail at those. Except for Smash Bros.

Tallgeese was a pretty lame fighter in that game. That said, I was pretty abysmal.

I'd still take ya. But I'm gonna need the right stuff if ya know what I mean.

I had a friend who used to do that all the time. Despite how aggravating it was it wasn't nearly annoying as my cousin who used to simply jump around and kick at you every now and then. Sweatdrop

Soul Calibur II
Street Fighter II (or Alpha 3)
Power Stone
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Mortal Kombat 2
Tekken 2 (or 4)
Dead or Alive 2
Guilty Gear X
Fatal Fury
Killer Instinct (my favorite arcade game when I was a kid)
Sephiroth 03-08-2006 09:56 PM
In no order what so ever:
Soul Calibur III
Marvel vs. Capcom II
Street Figher Alpha 3
Street Fighter 2
Soul Calibur II
Bloody Roar 2 and Bloody Roar Extreme (Equal in my eyes)
Tekken 2
Guilty Gear X2
Mortal Kombat
Ehrgeiz (Sephiroth Rules All)
Patsai 03-08-2006 11:04 PM
Killer Instinct
Street Fighter III
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Shredder 03-09-2006 01:28 AM
-Soul Calibur (the original on Dreamcast)
-Street Fighter Alpha 3
-Street Fighter Alpha 2
-Super Street Fighter II Turbo
-Mortal Kombat 2
-Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
-Eternal Champions (Genesis)
-Tekken Tag Tournament

-Marvel vs. Capcom 2
-Capcom vs. SNK 2

Okay, so that's 11, but I can't pick between those two Capcom versus games. I also can't pick an order because it's like apples and oranges in some cases. I love them all. Also, way too many good characters to pick just 10. Smile

It's too difficult to decide which 10 games are my favorite, so I'll go with my favorite series instead (listing my favorite games from each series in parentheses). Here they are, in no particular order:
  • Mortal Kombat (II, UMK3, and Trilogy)
  • Street Fighter (SSFII, SSFII Turbo, SFA2, and SFA3)
  • Eternal Champions (1 and CftDS)
  • Tekken (1, 2, Tag, and 5)
  • Soul Calibur (1)
  • King of Fighters (96, 97, and 98 )
  • Art of Fighting (3) (which, in my opinion, is much better than a "poor man's Street Fighter" Tongue )
  • Toshinden (2 and 3)
  • Capcom's Vs. Series (XMvSF, MSHvSF, MvC, MvC2, CvS, and CvS2)
  • Last Blade (1 and 2)

God, I hated Mortal Kombat 4. It was so damn easy, it was disappointing. I beat the game the first time I played, and I did it with Johnny Cage.

Give me MK Trilogy. I was masing that game with Ermac.

And I gotta agree with Krang, the Capcom vs. series like X-Men vs. Street Fighter and SNK vs. Capcom is fun as hell.
Peace.

  • Megaman Power Battle and Power Fighters
  • Kabuki Fighters(Something like that)
