FFD: Which Fighting Game Franchise is best?

2 min read


Like Street Fighter IV did in 2009, Mortal Kombat X has reignited general consumer interest in fight games. It won’t be too long before most gamers move on to the next big thing, but for now, the big thing is Mortal Kombat. Soon, it’ll be Tekken 7 – which should hits consoles and Pc later this year. As far as I’m concerned though, it’s all just buying time until the real king of fighters gets released next year: Street Fighter V.

To my mind, Street Fighter’s always had the deeper, more technical gameplay – less reliant on the easy-to-chain, dialled-up preset combos that have become a staple of Mortal Kombat (a series I still love, despite sucking royally at). Of course, there are more fighting games than those; the one actually named King of Fighters, the one with the boobs, Dead or Alive, and the fantastic fighters from Arc System Works, Guilty Gear and Blazblue. Namco’s got more than Tekken, they also dabble in weaponry with Soul Calibur – and there are others from Capcom, Like DalkStalkers (Rest in Peace) and Marvel vs Capcom.

I’m a complete Street Fighter nut – but I realise it’s not for everyone. Which fighting game franchise is your favourite. Don’t just click on the poll though; tell us why. [interaction id=”5530b4bd7fdf079b4e4295e5″]

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
