I played every game type of game out there fps, strategy, rpg, blah blah. Now I’m interested in spending hours of gameplay in a fighting game, but never played them much and have no idea what to get. Been looking at Mortal Kombat of course but also looking at injustice 2 purely because of the steam reviews. What to you peps recommend, not really interested in those wierd Japanese fighting games that I never heard of?

Thanks

I'm playing Injustice 2 at the moment. Great port, very good game. Highly recommended if the price doesn't put you off.

Mortal Kombat and Tekken 7 are great too, and I heard Killer Instinct is also decent.

Injustice 2, Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat X, Guilty Gear XRD, Street Fighter V, Marvel vs Capcom 3 / Infinite, Brawlhalla

Street Fighter V has crossplay with PS4, which makes it the most active. It's also very easy to get into, though a tad on the expensive side, i'd try get a key site if you can.

Killer Instinct also has crossplay, is relatively cheap and chalked full of content. It also has a auto-combot system which makes it very easy to get into, even though it does feel quite automated.

So yea, for population i'd go with SFV, which will have a free Arcade update next year giving it a population boost.

Tekken 7 is a great game and very deep. I like that a lot. Brawlhalla is off the beaten path and is lots of fun. It's in the vein of Smash Bros. It's free on Steam.

SFV with ease imo, amazing gamelay and it's crossplay with ps4 players.

I personally was going to jump into Killer Instinct since I noticed it's on Steam but I much rather wait until Dragonball Z comes out early next year. I'm not a fan of Tekken but I've heard good things of Tekken 7.

I've heard great things about Injustice 2, as well as MvC3!

Divekick is the best PC fighting game of all time. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Are you getting a solid 60 fps out of Tekken 7?

Marvel vs Capcom is probably a good place to start if you are new to fighting games. Find the right combination of characters and you can mash your way through it without too much trouble.

But if you are really just starting out, Divekick. Just uses one button, but is surprisingly fun.

The latest one looks really nice. I'm just waiting for a reasonable price drop.
