Best and Worst Figting Games

Its kind of funny I'm making this thread because when it comes right to it I completely suck at fighting games. I just mash the ******* buttons as quick as I can in hopes I do some damage to the other guy. I'm terrible at memorizing combo's. But after finishing Soul Calibur 5 It started to make me think what the best fighting game I have ever played.

For me the best fighting game I have played was Super Street Fighter 4. The fighting was great, the graphics look beautiful, some of the story arcs were fun to follow. Overall, I felt like I got my monies worth.

As for the worst, I was trying to decide between Soul Caliber 5 and Marvel vs Capcom 3. The fighting is good in both games but its a shallow experience especially when you compare it to the Mortal Kombat franchise, Injustice, Blueblaze, and the Street Fighter franchise. SC 5 and MvC3 is the opposite. When you play Soul Caliber 5 it offers you no endings when you beat arcade mode. You don't even get a biography on any of these characters. Who the hell is Viola or ZWEIL? I don't know they are just their. Story mode is a complete joke. For 3 lousy hours you get to follow two astonishingly annoying characters. Instead of cinematics they use badly drawn still-life to portray the story. The main boss is a pain in the ass. This ****er takes up a majority of your health within a few seconds. Despite that, I decided in the end that MvC3 deserved the honor of worst fighting game ever. If you ever wonder why Capcom has a bad reputation all you have to do is look at this game. It offers no spectator (unless you get ultimate MvC 3) or tournament mode. Has questionable character choices like putting in She-Hulk over Megaman You know Megaman, the character that put Capcom on the map. Unlike SC 5 they do offer character endings but they are all ******* stupid. Story mode isn't even offered in this game. But here is the real kick in the nuts. 9 month's after the first game was released they released Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. In this version you finally get Spectator mode (which you shouldn't have to pay 40.00) and 12 new characters, half of which suck balls. You can't buy a bundle pack for some of these characters. You have to buy them all for 40.00. 40.00 for a game that offered less content then before. **** YOU CAPCOM. You suck and so does this game.

In your opinion, Which fighting game is the best and which is the worst?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

Every Smash Bros game >>> any other fighting game, IMO.

As for other games, I actually really enjoyed Injustice: Gods Among Us, I thought that game was really solid

I've dabbled in some SF games, some MvC games, but they never held my interest any. I can't really say what the worst game is, though.

Clayfighter 33 1/3 for n64 is notorious for being the worst. Street fighter 2 for Sega md2 was probably my favourite. I like the mortal kombat series. Not the old ones. Mk4 was the beginning for me. EA mma has the best gameplay of nearly any fighting game.

Freaking awesome EA have the rights for ufc games now.

SF II for SNES - I invested a crazy amount of time into this game - I'll tell you how much I rocked playing this game: I was able finish the game using every character (even Zangief) on the hardest difficulty without continuing - anyone who's attempted to do that will tell you it takes some serious skills. I kinda wish online play was available back then, I would have owned all.

Tekken for PS1 - another favorite that I invested a crazy amount of time playing. I loved destroying my mates playing this game... was funny watching their faces as I 10 hit combo'd their arses.

Its hard to think of the worst fighting game but I'm giving that title to Pitfighter - it sucked.

If you don't read the papers you're uninformed. If you do read the papers you're misinformed.

My favorite fighting Game was one of the old Playstation K-1 Kickboxing games. Don't remember which one, but it was made right after Hunt won the prix, he was the champion. Simple yet fun 2-player game.

I like MMA less because of this forum
