Hello, I am a fan of fighting video games, and I've enjoyed many systems with this genre. for me, the best way to fight is the ps2, for his excellent fighting game library. the ps2, which is a system of long life, had many games, but Sega Dreamcast, with few years of life, had exelentes games too. two perfect systems for fighting games,

Both were great, but the PS2 had far more quality fighters hands down due to it's very long life. I love fighting games and have many you listed in the OP.

PS2 easily wins this

The PS2 had more quantity because it lasted for years,the Dreamcast has the top quality ones(and some of the most unique) though,especially Soul Calibur,the highest rated fighting game of all time.

Ps2 it had more and better fighting games. I guess you answered your own question with the lists provided. It missed very few ones in comparison to Dreamcast, that missed on a lot, not only in quantity, but in some of the better fighting games that came out after it was extinct.

Dreamcast. Dreamcast 2D fighters were just about almost always perfect. Dreamcast also has a better video output image.

PS2! But you're in the wrong forum. :-\

It depends on the game: for example CvS2 plays perfectly on both, but the resolution is different on PS2 (DC is native); Garou is unplayable on DC, where it is near-perfect on PS2; MvC2 on PS2 has problems where DC is on its native Arcade software (for anyone who doesn't know, DC is just a consolized SEGA NAOMI arcade system); 3s on DC is not the correct version (board b)... I can continue.

PS2 has a larger selection.

For certain games, you can find better HD remake versions on PS3 or 360 e.g. SC2 HD remake. Ivy caused some considerable lag as well as the windmill stage. Same goes for Neo Geo battle colliseum on PS2.
