Poll: What's your favorite fighting game franchise? (35 votes)

Street Fighter 11%
Virtua Fighter 6%
Tekken 20%
Dead or Alive 6%
King of Fighters 6%
Guilty Gear 3%
Other 49%

Simple what's your favorite fighting game and why?

I am admittedly a King of Fighters fan as 95 was my first taste of a non-street fighter, fighting game. The complexity of the move sequences and character designs were also more enjoyable than the bland one in street fighter.

Super Smash Brothers.

Other things come and go, but when a new SSB game is announced everyone notices.

DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi

SF, the father of the genre, maybe not the father, but the one who reinvented the genre to what it is today.

Soul Calibur. It's the only one I'm halfway decent at thus far.

You could have at least put another certain fighting game down.

Kome on!

#7 Posted by DecoyElite (4019 posts) - - Show Bio

Smash Bros.

I voted for Tekken but I like all of them pretty much.

#9 Posted by Bruxae (13901 posts) - - Show Bio

Soul Calibur and Mortal Kombat should really be on that list since they are both hundreds of times more popular then certain others listed. Biased much?

Smash Bros., the other fighting games feel like who can spam more which I find annoying.

#11 Posted by TifaLockhart (14051 posts) - - Show Bio

Of the options that aren't "other?" Tekken.

Of all time? Of all time? Ehrgeiz.

#12 Posted by StMichalofWilson (3834 posts) - - Show Bio

The Dragon Ball Z Budokai and Budokai Tenkaichi series or maybe Super Smash Bros.

Tekken.

Or Super Smash Brothers, which I'm fairly sure is at least in the top three most popular fighting game franchises of all time list.

Yeah no doubt. I haven't really given that game a chance though, lol.

It's been one of Nintendo's killer apps since the 64 era. It's much more easily picked up than most other fighting games but has a surprising level of depth.

Mortal Kombat, DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 2, or Smash Bros.

#27 Posted by Deranged Midget (17599 posts) - - Show Bio

@linkxv1: I'm curious, why two over three? They are essentially identical with the exception of the final game of the series boasting the largest cast.

Dead or Alive 2: Ultimate on PS2 is still my favorite fighting game. Although Street Fighter, MK, Marvel vs Capcom, and Killer Instinct are also favs.

Never played a DBZ fighting game as big a DBZ fan as I am.

Mortal Kombat / Injustice.

#36 Edited by Nelomaxwell (10504 posts) - - Show Bio

For those that are made that I didn't put MK or KI up there is because I don't consider them fighting games.

#37 Posted by Blood_Red_Rage (508 posts) - - Show Bio

Tekken because that is what I grew up playing.

#38 Edited by Yokergeist (12355 posts) - - Show Bio

Mortal Kombat is way better than the ones listed. Why didn't you list it?

#39 Edited by Perethorn (3401 posts) - - Show Bio

SSB, there is nothing more hilarious and enjoyable out there.

I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and wonder why Mortal Kombat was omitted. Tekken was always a favorite of mine playing in the arcade, otherwise I did love the Marvel games. X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, Marvel vs. Capcom, etc.

Guilty Gear!

And by extension, Blazblue

Because they didn't have arcade machines? Because I'm pretty sure they both did.

Seconded. I distinctly remember playing the original Mortal Kombat in the arcade when it first came out, as well as Killer Instinct and KI2.

How are games like Mortal Kombat and Supersmash brothers not fighting games?

And Mortal Kombat way the hell had Arcade machines. The entire point of fatalities was so that you'd have to put in more quarters to find them out and pull them off.

Admittedly its pretty hard for me to pick up and enjoy fighting games. I consider myself to enjoy a wide range of games, but Fighters are among the hardest.

I enjoyed Injustice. But I don't know that its a franchise. Otherwise they one that fits the description would be Soul Caliber. And even that I'm not jumping up and down about - I just wasn't bored either lol,
