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

You should look into Guilty Gear, just not Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers on the DS, or Guilty Gear Isuka, both of them feel too different from the main series, with them being four players and all. Guilty Gear: Dust Strikers was almost nothing like other Guilty Gear games, and more like SSB.

---------- Post added at 10:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at 10:50 AM ----------

DB: Bushido Blade almost looks like a 3D version of Samurai Shodown, in the fact that it is more about scoring that one clean hit, as opposed to pulling of a massive combo.

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

Samurai Showdown is cool but it's not like Bushido Blade at all. No other fighting game I've heard of has that combat system.

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

I know, in regards to the fatal hit, limb loss... no.

But I mean on the level of how it is about making a few good hits, as opposed to a bunch of weak hits in quick succession, and how there are a lot of stand offs.

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

I still don't think it's similar really. BB is literally a sword fighting game that has no blocking besides with your weapon. It takes a lot of timing and skill(or luck) to make it past the first couple attacks. I've played SS, it's more like every other fighting game. I'm not trying to be difficult it's just apples and oranges imo.

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

Okay, but you have to admit they are similar in the fact that they are both less combo focused than other fighting games, and have a similar pace.

Does it feel like a real swordfight? I have never played those games, but I like games with sword technique is required. Maybe I will give it a try.

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

I think it's like real sword fighting but I have no training in that field so it's just a guess. One thing that was cool in the first game was the honor system. If you attacked someone in the back, on the ground or while running you lost(or DQed I forget). You had to go by the samurai code of a fair fight. The second game did away with that but still had the same combat system.

@DM- you should watch videos of both games and see the difference. I don't think they're similar at all besides the characters being similar themes like samurai.

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

In my eyes the mother of all Fighting Games and the mother of all video games is Street Fighter 2. If not SF2 then Killer Instinct, the concept, the graphics and the game play were like nothing else on the market at its time, although KI2 was a great disappointment I think KI is great.

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

No offense intended qtip, or the makers of Killer Instinct, but I never liked Killer Instinct, not even in the least bit. I don't know why, it just wasn't even close to enjoyable for me.

I feel like I need to mention some games that are absent from this list, but are far better than the majority of this list. I may have done this earlier, but I've played more now, and have noticed some more absent games/series.
Fatal Fury {series}
Real Bout Fatal Fury {subseries of Fatal Fury}
Garou: Mark of Wolves {game in Fatal Fury series significantly different than the others}
Art of Fighting {series}
King of Fighters {series}
Bushido Blade
Rival Schools
Samurai Shodown

It's especially odd that King of Fighters was not represented. It's always been fairly popular and never felt like a Street Fighter clone.
The three man team idea is cool, and the fact that it replaces the round system makes sense.
If you've knocked a guy out, why would you wait around for him to come to again? And what, magically they are in perfect shape, as though they didn't just have fireballs blasted at them. In King of Fighters, you get knocked out, and your next guy jumps in, the opponent remains injured, and your first guy is done. It just makes sense.

Besides Bushido blade and Samurai Showdown I don't see why any of those would be on a list of best fighting games. King of Fighters maybe but the rest just don't seem to fit imo. Part of being the best is having a large fanbase that supports you.

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

So by you're logic, Psychonauts is a bad game?
I don't see it.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves was a fantastic fighting game,
the minor details like tactical position really made it stand
out. And besides, it introduced Butt, one of the most
awesome SNK characters of all time.

Not at all, don't assume things I didn't say. Psychonauts may be considered a sleeper hit but it has more fans and name recognition than most of the ones DM listed. My point is those fighting games may be good but do they really deserve to be on a best list? Just because you guys like them doesn't mean they're innovative or anything else meaningful. I think Destrega should be on the list but I can accept that it's not that popular.

So being the best quality hinges on popularity?

Have you even played those games, they did some pretty innovative things.
You know the deal with Bushido Blade.
King of Fighters had team based fighting.
Fatal Fury/Real Bout Fatal Fury had multiple planes you could fight on, and easy shift mechanics.
Garou: Mark of Wolves actually required some degree of skill, and has a certain depth that most 2D fighters lacked at the time.
Art of Fighting started out as an unapologetic Street Fighter clone, but quickly evolved into something unique, like the fact that your projectile attacks got weaker and lost range as your special bar drained.
Rival Schools is similar to Street Fighter, but has teams and the ability to move on the Z-axis, I also felt the balance was much better than Street Fighter, with more well executed mechanics.

I get what you are saying about the fanbase, but realize that sometimes great games are overlooked because a game bearing a more popular name comes out at about the same time.

No, I said it's part of the criteria. Even if a game is fantastic it won't matter if no ones ever heard of it. Know what I mean? All best of lists are basically popularity contests.

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

So because no one has ever heard about Cadillacs and Dinosaurs, it doesn't deserve to be on a top list of Beat 'em ups?

It can be on a personal list for sure, but not on a list that covers a grander scheme of things, how succusful a game is/was needs to be taken into account when your dealing with the general public.

That's fine, I don't think Final Fight was all that hot, but if I was making a list of the top 10 beat em' ups of all time, I would have to include it because of factors outside of the actual game.

It wouldnt be on my personal list, but if I was trying to represent the world I would have no choice.

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

You guys are thinking of a list like "The ten best fighting games you probably never played". That would be a good list to showcase awesome games that got little attention for whatever reason. A list like "Top ten fighting games of all time" has to factor in popularity as well as other stuff. If not it's ignoring part of what makes it the best.

Yeah, I get that. But if they are trying to make an absolute list, it would be cool if they offered some nomination thingy, followed by a poll to rank all of the nominees, even the ones that aren't super-popular.

Though, one thing about the argument of popularity as a criteria:

I know more people who've played Fatal Fury or King of Fighters, than I know people who've played Guilty Gear.

Look through this thread alone, how many times do you see things along the lines of "I've never played Guilty Gear, so I can't really judge it."

No one I know personally has played Guilty Gear, and I've been the only person that's told them about it, and yet everyone I know has at least heard of King of Fighters.

That is something I find odd.
