Pretty funny cause me and my friends were having a topic about which was the best fighting game as far as Violence goes so It will be interesting to see what people think.
#1 Time Killers- Strata (Developed in the early 90’s)
Platform: Arcade & Genesis
Description: You get to pick from a cast of warriors, Leif, Lord Wolf,Thugg, Matrix, Musashi, Orion, Mantazz. Death is the last boss. The most unique fighting game even to this day surprisingly. Each character yields some sort of weapon and with the weapons you can use them to Decapitate your opponents arm, head, legs, and body. If you slice off someones arms, they are only limited to kicks attacks, slice off one arm and they do less damage. Decapitate theyre head and its game over and no these arent fatality’s (like in MK) where you have to wait till the fights over. You can start off round 1 chop off theyre haed and its over. I love that about Time Killers. Yes some of the characters have bad animation and are poorly drawn but they really should have this game redone to new gen. Very unique.
#2 Weaponlord-Namco 1995
Platforms: SNES & Genesis
Description: Great game and even to this day one of the most technical and complex fighting games of all time. Korr, Devada, Bane, Zorn, Jentai,Zarak, Telasia (AAAAAAFRICA) all fight in a quest of survival. Thtas exactly what its about in this game. The way you perform fatality’s in this game are great. Fatality’s can be performed when an opponents life bar is low or after they have no vitality but they have to be hit in a combo that leads to a fatality or another for of fatality, Frenzy! Just like in Time Killers if attacks are done at the same time they null eachother out and clash. Games so fun too. Theres no turtling sitting on meteer or any of that shit. The way the weapons falsh and the sound they make when they clash is great too. Not only one of the best Fighting games in terms of Gore but definetly a top 10 in my book.
#3 Mortal Kombat- Midway
Platform: Arcade & Virtually all consoles
Description: Everyone pretty much knows the Mortal Kombat story. Shang TShung gathers Earths strongest warriors in a tournament called Mortal Kombat. Goro was victorious in the previous tournaments and Earthrealm’s Lui Kang defeats him and ShangTshung to claim the first tournament. Shoa Kahn grants Shung youth and the second tournamet is held but this time its in Outworld. Kung Loa wins that one. They coninue for 5 instalments of MK and what stands out in all of them is “Finish Him” Pretty much all of the fatality’s in MK are cool, especially MK2 (which imo are the best fatality’s)
Got kinda dumb when they added stuff like Friendship and Animality but hey Ed Boon needed more ideas.
There are possibly a few others but these are definetly top 3. Its Rumored that Namco’s thinking about remaking Weaponlord and putting it on the 360. That would definetly be a good thing and people can play and appreciate a good fighting game. What do you think?
