Best Fighter Poll

Post by Nemesis » Mon Jun 03, 2013 3:22 pm

Okay, so it's been a long time since I started a thread on here but I wanted to ask the Forum members what their favourite fighter is. They can be one on one, tag team, 3D, 2D, retro or modern. For variety, I think we can add games like Powerstone 2 or Smash Bros since they're not scrolling beat'em ups which would be excluded here.
Put your top 3 fighters in order, 1st place = 5 points, 2nd Place = 3 points & 3rd Place = 1 point.
Remember that popular franchises have many entries so please be specific when naming your three games. For example, Real Bout Fatal Fury is a separate entry to Real Bout Fatal Fury Special. Same for Street Fighter 2 etc

Polling will close on 24th June 2013 at 19.00 hours GMT, whereby I will add up all the points & then construct a Top 10,20,30 etc of RetroGamers Favourite Fighting games, dependant on how many nominations there are.

I will bump up the thread if necessary unless nobody wants to play. :)

My Top three are as follows;

1 Street Fighter 2 Turbo (Hyper Fighting) - 5 points
2 Marvel Super Heroes - 3 points
3 Capcom vs SNK 2 - 1 point

Over to you! :D
Oh and if you want to do little social experiments on our forum don't post about them on your own you plum - Darren@Retro Gamer

What about wrestling games? Totally understand if a line needs to be drawn, and the great WWF No Mercy cannot be crowned king of fighters.

Not really a fan of the genre, I'll go with the three I've played more...

Fightin' Spirit (Amiga), a bit let down by the 1-button joystick but a Neo-Geo quality game, splendid - 5
IK+ (C64), fantastic, smooth gameplay and great sound effect and music by Rob Hubbard - 3
Street Fighter IV, a great reboot of the series - 1
