Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

I'm telling you the people who came up with this list are casual fighting game fans at best and it shows. All these lists are just opinions but this one seems a little uninformed.

Btw it's funny this topic got killed by a Shaq fu derail. That game just keeps on failing.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

Yeah, it shows just by the mention of DOA next to the mention Virtua Fighter, seeing as how similar they are.
Also by the mention of Guilty Gear, yes it is a damn good game, but when both 2D and 3D fighting games are in the mix, it is not even worth mentioning.
It seems like they were going on name alone, and I also don't consider SSB fighting, yes it is fighting, but not the same thing at all, not even close. SSB is about using items and using Nintendo characters to throw other Nintendo characters off the edge of the screen. I consider a fighting game to be about damaging the character, and being able to win entirely from damage, SSB goes up to 999% and that alone cannot score you a victory.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

Smash bros is fighting regardless of the minor details. You can turn off items and other options. Soul caliber has options to make it ring out only or knock out only, similar to smash bros. More options is always better.
It's a simple fighting game with plenty of variety but at it's core it's a fighting game like the rest.

I never played GG so I can't really comment on it.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

This is one of the most messed up lists of all time. I can't believe they didn't include SFII, King of Fighters, or Eternal Champions in the mix. I believe, all of those games outsold Guilty Gear and were more popular overall. Lame!

I have played it a bit, but I got turned off by all the tech moves to be honest. It just became too complex and time consuming for my tastes. Then again, I have always been more of a Mortal Kombat fan than Street Fighter, so that might be some of it.

Even then it isn't on the same level as games like Tekken when it comes down to fighting.

The characters are insane, beyond that of any other fighting game, one of the characters is a guy who is as tall as the screen, but he stays low to the ground {lower than the shortest character} and he has a giant scalpel and a paper bag over his head.

The music is intense, somewhat generic, metal.

The fighting is so technical it can sometimes ruin the fun, you can win with one, very long, combo as any character. You start on the ground, then do a dust strike, they go flying, you jump and beat the crap out of them mid air, keep hitting as the bounce off the ground and just keep repeating this as necessary, and it can all be one combo easily.

Like I said before, mistimed button press, one motion forward instead of back, one dodge instead of a block, will almost always get you stuck in a combo that will easily eliminate you in a matter of seconds.

The characters aren't at all balanced, and the lack of balance can make a fight not pleasant at all. When you're winning it's great because of the amount of work you have to do to sustain a combo, but when you are losing, it isn't like other fighting games where you have a chance to save yourself, you just have to hit the "Roman Cancel" button and hope that that you press the button right in the time that the enemies strike is about to hit, as the time you have between attacks in a combo is usually less than a second.

I consider it a "party game" fun with a couple of friends, but not anything too serious as far a single player goes.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy SSB, I just have a hard time putting it on the same level as Street Fighter II, Tekken or Soulcalibur in terms of fighting, as it is a completely different kind of game. Yes, Soulcalibur has ring outs, but it isn't the primary focus of the game.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

Well, to be honest, I wasn't sure about it myself until I played. If a game like Final Fight or Urban Reign were up there, I would agree. They're not entirely fighting games either.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

I disagree. Yesterday i got into a serious competition on SSBB with a friend and we had fun. So SSB, imo, can be taken seriously, but some people refuse to

Well, the best(most fun) games are what they were meant to be. Games.

I assume people take Street Fighter as a half sport/test of skill.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

About the SSBB thing, it is a fighting game. It doesn't matter how many moves the characters have or if it has all the bells and whistles like uber ultra combos. Guile from SF only had two moves for like twenty years and he's right up there with all the other people on the roster. Sometimes less can be more. I think Smash bros does a good job of making a simplistic fighting game that is enduring and fun.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

No, I don't look at Street Fighter as a test of skill, and I do take SSB serious, to an extent. I just don't classify it as the same kind of fighting game as Street Fighter or Tekken. Yes, I enjoy SSB, yes I take them seriously, it just seems like the odd duck when in the same list as Street Fighter, Tekken, SoulCalibur and Guilty Gear, it just isn't the same kind of fighting. Maybe it's because the majority of the games on this list are one on one, or maybe tag team, but still, two people in the ring at a time,

Notably missing from this top ten list is anything from the Darkstalkers series {3 is the best, the rest are great as well}, they are even better than Street Fighter when looking at 2D fighters, particularly projectile heavy ones made by Capcom.

---------- Post added at 05:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:55 PM ----------

Also: Darkstalkers has Morrigan, which gives it serious points.

Soul Caliber isn't the same kind of fighting game as those either and it's perfectly valid right? My point is the details don't matter.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

But at least Soulcalibur is similar. I tend to put the restriction of two in the ring fighting at any one time, tag team is fine, because it is switching off. SSB is fine, I'll call it a fighting game, if it so pleases. But even then I don't see it as amongst the top ten fighting games.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

You're entitled to place it anywhere you want on your list as long as you accept that it's a fighting game. If anything smash bros is leading the pack by letting you fight with four players at once. What other fighting game has that? I think more fighting games should have that option along with tag mode. More is better.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

I'm not sure that the first Power Stone had four player fighting, but I know for a fact that the second one did.

Yes, I acknowledge SSB as a fighting game, after I dropped my mental requirement of 1 on 1, it fit. I dropped the 1 on 1 aspect when I realized that several fighting games have more than 2 fighters in the ring.

But even as a fighting game, I just cannot quite justify it being in the top ten, unless it is number ten itself.

I said before: This list needs Darkstalkers 3. Instead of having traditional rounds, when someone is knocked out, they get right back up with full health, and this is their last chance. So you can actually continue to fight without having to await a second round, and if you are doing good on health, you don't have to start at nothing, it makes the final boss tolerable. Plus the mechanics otherwise are so well executed, it puts the Street Fighter series to shame, seeing as it was made by Capcom as well, you'd think they'd carry over some of the things over into the Street Fighter series.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

I think Smash bros deserves to be on the list over Darkstalkers simply for it's popularity. I never really liked DS and most of the people I knew didn't play it either. Just saying.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

To be honest, I don't think popularity and quality go hand-in-hand all too much, particularly with fighting games. "Do I buy a game with characters I am familiar with, or one that I have never heard of?"
Most people will go for the familiar characters or brand, while casting aside the one without a known brand. This is also why most RPGs are overshadowed by Final Fantasy or anything made by Square, Einix, or Square-Enix.

I can see why someone might not like Darkstalkers, the mechanics are not always user friendly.

I also think that Samurai Showdown or Capcom vs. SNK should be on the list.

Also, if Smash Bros. were to stay on, I'd remove Killer Instinct for Darkstalkers.
Also: Beastorizer over DOA.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

I get the point about popular not equaling quality. I've played a lot of fighting games over the years and I think SB is popular because it's quality though. You may not like it that much but it's still really popular and highly regarded. If it was trash it wouldn't get that much acclaim after this much time and exposure.

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

SSB is quality, I just think there are more than ten fighting games better than it. It's just that simple. I do like it a lot, but there are at least ten fighting games that are better than it.

You know what? I'm going to compose my list of top ten fighting games right here, and right now:

10. Soulcalibur II
9. Beastorizer
8. Dissidia: Final Fantasy
7. Marvel vs. Capcom
6. Capcom vs. SNK
5. Samurai Showdown
4. Mortal Kombat
3. Street Fighter Alpha 3
2. Darkstalkers 3
1. Tekken 5

Re: Screwattack: Top 10 Fighting Games of all time.

My list would look something like this-
1. Tekken
2. Soul Caliber
3. Bloody Roar/Beastorizer(not the later horrible versions)
4. Mortal Kombat
5. Street Fighter
6. Marvel vs Capcom
7. Destrega
8. Bushido Blade
9. Smash Bros
10. Virtua Fighter
I didn't bother listing the individual games in the series if I played them all pretty much equally.

Btw did anyone play Destrega or Bushido Blade? I really loved those two and I wish they'd make more fighting games like them.

Destrega lets you use a large open map to your advantage and it has long distance projectiles and up close combat.
Not the best video but there's not many to choose from.

Bushido blade had realistic sword fighting that led to intense stand offs and fun duels. If you got hit with a lethal shot you died. If you took a clean hit to the arm or leg you'd lose use of it(yes you'd be on the ground swinging your weapon).

Both PS1 so they're ugly but really awesome despite that.
