PS2 - Marvel vs. Capcom 2 comes to mind... but that's all I've got.

PS2 has the Tekken series. Both of them have Mortal Kombat but each system has it's own little additions. PS2 also has Guilty Gear. Not sure what else the GC has.

Ps2 had more fighting games, so it takes the cake.

Completely spaced about Smash Brothers. So in terms of quantity, ps2, but in terms of quality, smash bros.

No contest, Virtua Fighter 4 Evo. VF5 doesn't even have all the features of VF4E.

They both have MK: Deadly Alliance but I never was a fan of the Gamecube controllers, plus the PS2 has a boatload of fighting games overall.

that totally depends on opinion , I personally don't like smash bros at all. anyways both have their choices, both have the Mortal Kombat games as well as Soul Calibur 2. the PS2 does have the advantage of being able to play the PS1's library the PS2 also has Dead Or Alive 2 and Virtua Fighter 4 Evo , Capcom Vs SNK 2 .

PS2 has a ton of Streetfighter and King of fighter games to check out as well as Arcana heart, Hokuto no ken, and some compilations from neo geo and other arcade collections. I've never tried Melty Blood or Guilty Gear so I can't comment on them.

Tekken Tag Tournament is still the best in the series.

I completely agree about Smash Brothers... I think the whole series is just about complete crap (I really dont see the appeal outside of some awesome characters to choose from). With that being said, I would easily go with the PS2 for fighting games. In fact the PS2 beats the GC in every single category imo. I do like the GC but it doesn't even hold a candle to the PS2 outside of a very small handfull of games.

Super Smash Bros Melee is king but Soul Calibur 2 and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 are also fun.

I've never played the PS2 versions of these games so I can't comment on how close to arcade perfect they are but:

SF: anniv collection(i.e. SF3:3s and SSFIIT )

Garou mark of the wolves

CvS2

GGX

DOA2

MvC2

and stuff on PS2 I have played

SCII and III

KoF:max impact

VF4:evo

That should def get you started, and remember on PS2 you can play awesome PS1 fighters. If you don't have a saturn or dreamcast, SFAIII comes to mind.

I always have to say this before I recommend fighting games on older consoles: Unless you have friends who you can play the games with regularly, don't bother getting any fighting games.

Unless you consider Smash Bros. to be a fighting game, there's nothing on the GC that I can recommend. I guess you could get Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO, but you'll need a stick.

Here are some PS2 games you should check out:

Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution

Street Fighter Anniversary Collection

Capcom vs. SNK 2

King of Fighters XI

Since the PS2 is backwards compatible with the PS1, I will also recommend Rival Schools.
