The Fighting (Video) Game Thread
Since I can't do shit for 6 weeks due to my appendix, I've been playing a lot of CapCom vs SNK 2 on my Xbox here in my dorm. Of course I play with Sagat, him being a practitioner of the same art as me (Muay Thai). I also play a little Soul Caliber 2 as well, usually as Yoshimitsu with his badass sword. Last but not least I gotta bust out my Gamecube once in a while and play some Super Smash Bros. Mele with either Marth or Link. :thumbsup:
What's your favorite fighting game?
Mortal Kombat Armageddon is they best fighting game out there......Virtua fighter 5 is also pretty good....Tekken 5 is a solid Fighter
Have you actually played that game? Its a ******* travesty!
Until Armageddon was released, the MK series has always been my favorite fighting game if not favorite game. But now, I just don't know.
Tekken 3 is always great to play. I remember buying this game for 15$ when I was in gr 7, played it everyday at lunch the entire year. I give it a spin now and then.
Never played 5 all that much, got it when it came out but drifted away from it cause I had no time to play and havent since.
Mortal Kombat II on PS3 is a godsend, I love that freakin game soo much. My favorite MK game by far and I feel its their best work. (Best as in brilliance and wit)
Street Fighter II Turbo: The New Challengers,
Can't go wrong with this classic. My favorite Sagat appearance. All the fast paced action without all that goofy Alpha BS and juiced up characatures.
Anyone remember Primal Rage? That game was twisted in a sick kind of way. Remember pissing on your opponent to death with Chaos?
and you cant forget Killer Instinct
I just DL'ed a new 64 emulator and KIG so I can finally give it try once more. Wasnt good with too many characters but the ones I was good with, I was dominant with.
Mortal Kombat Armageddon is great...you have a great story mode....and all the Characters whats not to love
Tekken 5 is awesome, there's actually a Muay Thai fighter in it, some black dude, can't remember his name but I went him all the time cause he was just awesome :)
Thats about all that I find stellar about it.
Lets begin my list of negatives:
-- The Fatality system,
Ok, this was truly a bad idea, its doesnt even get that creative, the way they intended it to be.
-- It came without bios,
This was a huge mistake. half the fun about MK is the stories and they decided that the game would be complete without them. Man were they wrong. Over at MKO, literally 9 out of 10 people thought this was the worst decision they had made.
So, out of 60+ characters, fans still felt that they had no variety and needed to create their own. Bad idea. I dunno about you, but throughout the past 13 years, I went just fine without having to design my own character. I was happy with theirs.
-- The endings,
This game is called Armageddon, because it was suppose to be the end of these characters, Ed Boon was going to take MK to a different level with all new characters, and yet, they still managed to make Scorpion the champ thats gonna be around forever and gave him a reason to return in future MK games. The problem with that you ask? Well, everything in MK revolves around Scorpion. Its like this kool character that made a big hit is now being forced down everyones throats because Ed Boon has a fetish with the guy.
-- Puzzle Kombat out, Enter... Motor Kombat :dunno:
Twisted Metal ripoff.....NEXT!
If someone told me that they like playing this game more than Chess or Puzzle Kombat, I'd call them a liar and a fraud.
and lastly, Konquest.
Konquest in Deception was alot of fun I thought, this one I think is freakin brutal, Taven and Daegon are shitty characters that look like Ben Affleck.
Other things people complained about over at MKO dont bother me soo much, like Motaro's legs, and Goros 4 pectorols.
I love Mortal Kombat but game was a disgrace and it has quite possibly turned me off of it for a long time. Unless they can reinvent MKII.
nice post. i will admit there were a lot of things Boon screwed up in the series and but it is Still to just sit done and play
I love Soul Calibur II, my characters are Mitsurgi and Nightmare.
The game to end all fighting games for me and my friends is Street Fighter: Third Strike. The game is flawness, nice rounded characters with deep backstories, the parry system is great and you get 3 old characters to add to the new characters.
And yes, all Mortal Kombat games after MKII sucked.
as for me growing up with street fighter fatal fury tekken kof, mk, alot of the 3d fighting games are crap.
smash bros thats not even a fighting game.
kameleon right here is true fighting game fan. pro tekken player which for me is okie game. tekken 3 best one ever. sc2 fun gameplay. sf-3s flawless indeed. games after mk2 sucking. not really. up to deception. then arm was complete crap most unbalnced game ever. more unbalanced THEN MVC!!!!! OR C VS SNK!!!!!!1
but yea my list of fighting games is
sf2 og!=never gets old good ol fashion sonic boom
sfa3= perfect game purrrfect. and hard as hell
pride fc= cuz come mma ftw!
kof 2000/1999/= its kof and its badass
mv street fighter= cap america vs hulk vs zangief!
and yea good stuff. wohoo. The Fighter's Generation
I don't mind Mortal Kombat Armageddon but it's not spectacular. Like I created my character and I named my style 'Jiujitsu' yet I do Kick boxing and Karate attacks.. There are several characters on the game that use grappling arts, why not bring grappling into the game?
King Of Colosseum II is my favourite fighting game. I like all the Street Fighters, Tekkens and stuff but I want more grappling and less tripple backflips etc. I like them to be more realistic.
