The fighting game genre has grown popular with the rise of popular franchises like Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Dead or Alive, Virtua Fighter, Tekken and much more. Personally the Dead or Alive series is my favorite fighting game series but I wanna hear from all of you what your favorite series is. Please let me know. Thanks!

Loved the Street Fighter games, but I also enjoy the Soul Calibur series

First option for me.

It's not really a contest, imo.

Also, 2D >>> 3D, for fighters. (altho Tekken and VF have their moments)

street fighter

Guilty Gear very likely, if not definitely for 2D fighting.

Marvel vs Capcom series

Soul Calibur series

I voted for Street Fighter since it's my favorite 2D one, but I can't decide if I like it best. I put Virtua Fighter and Soul Calibur right alongside it.

I'm not really a fan of fighting games but I used to like playing the Tekken games on PS1

In general, I probabnly spend the most time with the Mortal Kombat series, but I have to give respect to Killer Instinct and the earlier Tekken games, too.

Really close between Street Fighter and Tekken, but Tekken has a better control layout for me.  I like how there's a button for right and left arm and leg, it really allows me to put together some amazing combos without really learning the characters.  I've always felt like the fluidity of combat in Tekken games is unmatched.

Street Fighter, followed fairly closely by DoA.

Mortal Kombat is the only one i've gotten any lasting enjoyment out of.

Super Smash Bros.

For me Tekken has the best mix of pure ridiculousness, a reasonable learning curve, and cool moves I pick Tekken

No SNK love yet :(

My favorite is the King of Fighters series, followed by the Capcom Versus games.

Samurai Showdown.

1. Tekken 2. Street Fighter 3. Mortal Kombat Played those games since I was a child and still enjoy most of them.

Hmmm I dont know.  none of them are masterful IMO.  I want to see a really full featured fighter with plenty to do that has quality fighting and such.  I would say something that...

combines the unlocking weapons and such of Soul Calibur 2

with the skill involved in Street Fighter

with the brutality and atmosphere of Mortal Kombat

and then a lot more awesomeness added on top.


Street Fighter is great, but it has always felt rather bare bones to me.  I think my favorite is Soul Calibur 2.  That or One Must Fall 2097.  Awesome game!

With 2nd Impact Giant Attack being Japanese G.O.A.T and Deception/Vs.DC being the American G.O.A.T it's a really hard choice my child. Darn, it really is hard. I'll have to get back to you.

2D: King of Fighters or Last Blade 3D: Soul Calibur Though I've probably spent more hours playing Capcom vs. SNK 2 than any other game I own.

I used to be all over Street Figher and Guilty Gear but now I'm more into Virtua Fighter and Dead or Alive. I'm not very good at fighting games though so I never get really into them.

2D - Vs. Capcom series (followed by Street Fighter)

3D - Dead or Alive series (followed by Tekken)

#27 Posted by XereoWarrior (135 posts) -
Another one, Super Smash Bros.
#28 Posted by Valknut4 (403 posts) -

Killer Instinct was the only "true" fighting game I ever got into.

Other the that stipulation Smash bros is king in my mind.

#30 Posted by MagnusDracoRex (28 posts) -
Mortal Kombat
#31 Posted by Blueresident87 (5340 posts) -

Of those choices, Street Fighter and then Dead or Alive.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 might be the greatest fighting game ever made though.
