In your opinion, what is the best 2d Fighting games series and why? Note: 2D!!! That means no Tekken, Soul Calibur, Dead or Alive, or Virtua Fighter. It also must be a series, meaning that it must include more than one game.

My vote: Street Fighter

The series that basically defined what we see as a fighting game, it features a myriad of infamous characters, attacks, and a fighting engine that is easy enough for noobs whilst still challenging and rewarding for true vets.

Easily Street Fighter is the best. The characters are legendary and the fighting system is unmatched.

It's amazing that the series started way around 1987! Capcom almost ruined it with many versions of the same game.

SHORUKEN!!!

Favorite 2d fighting game of all time.

Street Fighter. It's too important to the genre not to give it the vote imo.

Surprised you didn't post guile's theme. I miss the jazz in street fighter III

#17 Posted by jointron33 (1902 posts) - - Show Bio

@frogdog: MY favorite is Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold

and despite not remixing Ken, Ryu, Akuma, and Chun-Li's themes in jazz (which would have been awesome), Street Fighter 3 generally had alot of good music. Unfortunately, most of 3rd strike's soundtrack sucks, and even the good tracks (such as You Blow My Mind) pale in comparison to the first two games' scores. It was filled with awful rap music which was fated back then. Sharp Eyes is a particularly good track.

Been done before, last poll MK dominated lol then SF. Varies

Smash leading? must be a ton of kids on here now days. It's good but not the best to me anyway.

I'd go with MK, then SF everything after.

No Karate Champ which was the first fighter to really start the ball rolling.

As far as current fighters, MK9 and Injustice for me by far.

#32 Posted by XImpossibruX (5170 posts) - - Show Bio

@vaeternus: So if you vote Smash you must be a kid?

Great assessment, everyone who voted MK must be the older, more mature audience that can handle it....

#33 Posted by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

@ximpossibrux: well if the shoe fits...do you not think lots of kids arent on here or "younger" people?more so then say sf, mk sites?

As someone older not the oldest nor the youngest its a fair assessment given how mk is rated m, but then that doesnt stop 10 year olds from playing it im sure

#34 Posted by joewell (6287 posts) - - Show Bio

Was gonna vote for MK, then i saw Smash Bros. I played that game for ( checks wii ) around 94 hours, then i turned it off while it was saving. And i haven't play it since...

Mortal Kombat leading over King of Fighters is a damn travesty

#36 Edited by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

How so, mk is the better series...if it wasnt leading kof that would be a true travesty lol

So you put mk, sf, etc yet expect others to hate them because you do? Uh huh..good luck with that kid. Lol

#38 Edited by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

@ jointron, uh no. You must not know much about video game history? Mk is awesome far better then kof, all day, any day...its one of the best fighters period.kof lmao that games a joke and just another sf clone. Get real...nobody even plays kof cause it sucks

#39 Posted by jointron33 (1902 posts) - - Show Bio

@vaeternus: did u seriously just call kof a sf clone

Okay, i have not been a Nintendo fan since the NES but is Super Smash really that good? Maybe i should check it out.

Personally i voted Street Fighter but when it comes to fighting games, Tekken is my favourite. Maybe because i grew up playing Tekken. But I do like Street Fighter. Especially Street Fighter 2 and Super Street Fighter 4. Also i think SF X Tekken was pretty good but u can see my bias there ;). As for Mortal Kombat I understand people love it but I never got into it, I did play Mortal Kombat 2, MK 4, Unchained, MK vs DCU and also Deception or something, forgetting the exact name though. Its the reason I m not playing Injustice. A thing i really dislike about MK is how sometimes when someone is KOed they stand up and fall again.

#41 Edited by Vaeternus (9410 posts) - - Show Bio

@cloudzackvincent: interestng write up but nit sure what you mean by the ko fall down gig. You get koed in sf or mk, older games youd just start a new round. The newer mks its like one continuous fight but they back you off automatically if you beat the guy next to him.

But i like smash too, im actually a nin supporter at heart and live smash i just like mk more. Injustice is also epic.

At jointron, yed that would be what i said

#42 Edited by Xaa (313 posts) - - Show Bio

@vaeternus: I agree entirely.

Mortal kombat is great. honorable mentions street fighter,killer instinct and virtual fighter the first one was two d.

It's one of the few series left in gaming that I feel is a true system seller, and the only fighting game I can ever remember being one. I personally don't think the first game was that good but Melee and Brawl were both amazing.

@vaeternus: umm as english isn't my first language i m kinda finding it hard to explain. It may have changed but in some MK games when someone is knocked out by a strong hit instead of just lying down, sometimes they stand up and falls down again promptly and the declaration "xxx wins" follows.

@uncanny_doom: i'll check it out if i ever get a wii u.. but which is kinda unlikely.. mybe a 3ds.
