    Default The One Fighter Game to Rule them ALL!

    In your opinion what is the best fighter of all time. and by fighter i mean a game such as street fighter or teeken....not backyard wrestling or boxing. Make sure u select a title - not just the brand name.

    bad example: King of Fighters
    good example: King of Fighters 2001 edition

    Who wouldn't have fought with Lee? Why that crusty old...[/dennisandthehermit]

    Jeez, best fighter? That's pretty...deep, you know.

    I like Fatal Fury 3: Road to the Final Victory, and others besides, too.

    I like King of Fighters '99

    - most likely the only one with that answer

    Choaniki: Bakuretsu Rantouden

    ...

    ... Okay, maybe not. ;) I'll go with Garou: Mark of the Wolves. I'd pick King of Fighters '99 too, but the KOF series is a little too "hardcore" for my inferior fighting game skills.

    If super Smash bros. melee counts, I'll go with that. If not, then it's a tie between Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 2, Power Stone 2, and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2.

    On the other hand, I've discovered that Battle Tycoon isn't that bad. Not amazing, but not too bad!

    Smash Bros Melee is a fighting game. A very unique one, but a fighter nonetheless.

    My vote goes towards Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting. 2d Fighting at it's finest. Notables also include Samurai Shodown 2, Sam Sho 5, SF3 3rd Strike, and Fatal Fury Special.

    I don't like smash bros. and I don't think it fits with classic fighter games at all. Its a game of its own genre. I dont see how pressing A and B to hit with stuff u pick up is fitting to the genre. Naturally thats just my opinion and I don't mind if anyone thinks different

    SFA3 Cody can pick up a knife and fight with it. In Powerstone, you pick up items and fight with those.

    Sides, even if you turn off the items in Melee, it's still a fighting game. It's got a good amount of depth in the game engine, so there is more to it then just mashing A and B. Wavedashing, L-cancelling, spikes, edge guarding, and so forth. It's not a traditional fighting game, but then, Virtua Fighter wasn't a traditional fighter when it came out. Neither were the Capcom Vs. games. Even Street Fighter 2 was a step away from the previous fighting games.

    You can hate smash bros all you want, but the bottom line is it is a fighting game.

    if i have to pick one to rule over all, and never pick up another fighter?

    easy. SF2 turbo.

    if i can make a list:

    1a) SF2 turbo
    1b) SF3 3rd strike (technically better than SF2, but you can ALWAYS find someone who will throw down in SF2 and put up a decent fight)
    2) soul calibur (DC)
    3) samurai showdown 2
    4) guily gear X2 #reload
    5) SSB: Melee
    6) capcom vs SNK2: EO
    ...
    3472387432) Marvel vs Capcom 2...most overrated game evAr... i can't believe the prices the PS2/Xbox versions fetch on ebay.

    Most fighting game fans either love or hate the vs. series. I'm in the former.

    MvC2 is where it's at for me. No other fighting game plays as fast as it does, or holds potential for continuously comboing up new characters for devastating results. The premise is rock solid. And the selection of characters is unmatched.

    If I were to do a full list it would probably be:

    1) MvC2
    2) SF:3T
    3) Samurai Showdown 2
    4) Capcom vs SNK 2
    5) Virtual Fighter 4
    6) Street Fighter Alpha 3
    7) Last Blade 2
    8) Super Smash Brothers: Melee
    9) Power Stone 2
    10) Soul Calibur

    Honorable Mentions: Bushido Blade and Guilty Gear X2 (to be honest, I haven't played it enough, but it has the potential to hit the top of my list)

    I can't speak for buttasuperb, but I'd choose Last Blade over Last Blade 2 also. Last Blade 2 just feels like a rehash to me. I get that "same old, same old" feeling from it. It's not bad, but... it doesn't feel worth playing to me.
