I remember working a small game shop in Tribeca some years back and one day getting into a debate with some store regulars about what the greatest fighting game is/was. As pointless as the conversation was, it sure made for some entertaining arguments (both, profound and slap-stick humorous). Tears of laughter rolled down my cheeks as individuals insisted (passionately) upon titles like Killer Instinct, Primal Rage, and Eternal Champions. Voices amplified and tempers flared.
At that point I realized just how taboo the topic of “best fighting game ever” was. Entertaining, nonetheless.
What’s the Greatest Fighting Game Ever? Lists and debates welcomed.
For the would-be Captain Obvious: Yes. Greatest fighting game ever is a very subjective and most often pointless argument. This is well-understood by any partially intelligent individual. Save the needless input for another thread.
