Greatest Fighting Game Series

Best game series that involves 2 or more players fighting each other. Franchises only please.

The Top TenXW


Tekken is awesome! The 3-D graphics are amazing! It should definitely be #1! I have played it since I was a little kid, I grew up playing it; and I still play it to this day. It would have to be my most favorite fighting game of all time! Tekken has created powerful, awesome fantasy characters into my life such as Lili and Xiaoyu.

Tekken should br number 1... But its ok... We all know that tekken is the best selling fighting game franchise of all time... Beating... Street fighter... Mortal kombat.. Doa... Etc..

A Huge cast of characters and a stories behind each. One of them along side the great mechanics with No super meter and only fighting. Makes this the greatest fighting series, and the don't super or Ultra every entry.

Best fighting ever (TEKKEN).just play and ENJOY

A whole lotta blood spilling out - aeromaxx777

Four words: Mortal Kombat kicks ass!

FINISH HIM! FATALITY! TOASTY! The iconic lines of gaming history! MK RULES!

Definitely the best fighting game series ever made. Yes, it's too much bloody and brutal but so entertaining and cool at the same time

Best fighting game ever

3Super Smash Bros.

Smash Bros wins for being unique. Every other fighting game has more or less identical gameplay, just with different characters.

It only releases on one platform, yet it sells the best. Heck, that pretty much sums up Nintendo. Only releasing on one platform, but selling the best!

I am so excited for the new one and super smash bros brawl is my favorite video game

This should be number 1. It is a completely unique fighting game that anyone can enjoy.

9Marvel vs Capcom

The series became one of the most recognized franchises ever. - aeromaxx777

10Fight Night

Not your usual fighting game. Even though your only able to throw punches (and headbutts) the game play is really unique and its really hard to win by spamming because of the energy bar unlike with most other fighting games

The Contenders


Adding in that anime makes it more awesome

12Virtua Fighter

I haven't played that much games but still great

13Guilty Gear

A series with gameplay that truly puts your technical skills to use, with blindingly fast pacing, a refined engine, and a stunning variety of combos and techniques. The overall depth and variety offered by this combat system is difficult to match, and has done a lot of evolving since the unorthodox, yet intriguing original game.

The hand-drawn, sprite-based graphics are beautiful, especially on the part of the character models, and the backgrounds are breathtaking. Daisuke Ishiwatari's compositions for the soundtrack provide an energetic and uplifting feel, and compliment the furious action perfectly. The overall artwork of this series is creative, original, and well-conceived.

The characters are all very unique, likable, and inspiring, with surprisingly involving storylines and backgrounds, and strong, memorable personalities. Their names, moves, clothing, and overall design are full of rock and heavy-metal references. The franchise is almost guaranteed to introduce ...more

One of the best fighting games I have ever played, it had good graphics, fun gameplay, amazing music, and memorable characters that are all unique

Best fighting game I've ever played, the only one of the list along with blazeblue that just can't get old, even if you play it for months
