Single-player fighting games worth exploring


#1

I have a backlog of PC games that I’m working through, although unlike most I am actually making progress! I would like to play a couple of fighting games because I haven’t really touched them in a decade. I do not plan to really play against anyone except perhaps my wife in Soul Calibur 1 (sentimental value for her since she used to play with her cousin, go figure!). Are there any fighting games with particularly good single-player modes that I should check out? Otherwise, I will just look up the popular ones and play a few characters or whatever.

I don’t own any modern consoles, so Gametap/emulators/PC fighters are about it for me.


#2

look for the ones with good story like king of fighters series


#3

A3 World tour mode


#4

Akatsuki Blitzkampf. Tons of shit to do.


#5

Hate to show my completely lack of knowledge about fighting games in the last decade, but do any of these have a story that plays out in the world tour / campaign / single-player mode, or are you referring to a nice backstory and mythos?


#6

Isn’t Warzard basically designed as a one-player fighter?


#7

Yep.
Soulcalibur III has a kickass mode called “Chronicles of the Sword” which combines the fighting mechanic with RTS. Then there’s Mortal Kombat: Deception/Armageddon to consider. Konquest Mode and Chess/Puzzle/Motor Kombat are a ton of fun.


#8

GGXX story mode?

VF4 Evo quest mode?


#9

Tobal wasn’t bad.


#10

Warzard, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and GGXX story modes are all nice.


#11

GGAC+ and GGXX#Reload story and mission mode are good


#12

KOFXI has a little mission mode kind of thing where you either have to complete it by performing a certain ability or by winning the watch without doing kicks or etc.


#13

This. Sugoroku mode has a nice replay value.


#14

virtua fighter 4 evo is nice for 1 player. quest mode could take you a while.


#15

Akatsuki Blitzkampf: Sugoroku Mode is awesome.

Also Metamoqester is one of the best Single-Player fighting games (better than Warzard IMHO).


#16

Tech Romancer is quite fun in single-player - the story and it’s cut scenes change depending on how you play.


#17

it’s more about just watching endings though
