Best Fighting Games of All-timeWarhead100
The Top Ten
The original brawl is slow, lacks any technical skill, and focuses on simplistic spacing tactics. Brawl would not be on this list if the community did not crack the game and create Melee physics for it. The most notable of these mods has to be Project M, which returns the Melee physics and balances the cast to the new environment. If you haven't seen a Brawl mod I would highly recommend you go check one out.
Melee is a better game... But if I can't vote for that I guess I have to vote for this! Super Smash Bros. In my opinion is the best fighting series for multiplayer with friends, as I can play for hours on end without getting bored at parties and such.
I'm so excited to see what they bring in the next installment. With an impressive character roster and stage selection, in addition to how unique each of the characters are, makes it one of the only 2D fighting games that I will play.

This is by far the best tekken game. If I had to play one fighting game for the rest of my life it would definitely be Tekken 3.
I grew up with this. Literally the best video game of all time. The only game that even possibly rivals it would have o be tekken tag tournament 2. However as it seems, besides tekken 4, tekken just keeps getting better and better!
It is more challenging to fight a characters using martial arts and wrestling than moves with super powers even if yoshimitsu can heal and slash his enemy. Slower the kill the more interesting the fight - ronluna
Big fan of Smash, but Tekken is much much better.V 23 Comments
The best Mortal Kombat ever done. 2d gameplay done well, awesome graphics, and two things most other fighting games don't have: an actual elaborated Story mode with a good storyline and a massive Challenge Tower with 300 challenges for you to waste your time in. Plus, all of the gore Mortal Kombat was always famous for is back. FINISH HIM!
Another brilliant mortal kombat game with superb graphics, fights, arenas, fatalities, gore, konquest mode etc - Magnolia
Even the complete edition is good I have the complete edition
Come on it should be number one street fighter is ok but it’s no we’re near as good as Mortal Kombat.V 15 Comments
Melee continues to be played competitively in tournaments all around the world more than ten years after its release. The game is well balanced, with over half of its characters consistently placing well in tournaments, it offers movement over much larger and more intricate levels than almost any other fighting game, and it has great graphics, soundtrack, and mechanics. The inclusion of items and custom game modes allows for complete beginners to have fun and do well without having to button mash (To many serious gamers' great delight, button mashing works worse in Melee than nearly any other fighting game), while the exclusion of items allows competitive players to have pure, unadulterated fights as technical and dramatic as any other fighting game. Not to mention the ability to play as all of the most iconic Nintendo heroes of all time!
This is my one of first gamecube games I ever had. This was the start of smash Bros competitive play. Lots of character are well balanced the game play as whole is enjoyable, even the soundtrack and the graphics are great. This game is hands down one of the best games dear to my heart.
The Melee Community is gigantic. It has spawned thousands of tournaments, players, a documentary, and fun for millions. Tons of content, ridiculously fast gameplay that is exciting and fun, and hundreds of trophies, modes, etc. Masterpiece. It is the best Super Smash Bros. Game, and the Best Fighting Game. (Mortal Kombat 2011 and SF2:Turbo Fighting are next).
16 years as a competitive community and it's only growing. Need I say more?V 16 Comments
This game is way better than any other tekken game on the spot! It has great graphics, awesome combo moves, huge amounts of pain, and exquisite power within each character. Especially the character Law.
Best martial arts game ever made this game is pure skill and no powers.. This is truly a challenge to talk abt tekken is a giant by itself and hopefully it will continue
My favourite is Hwoarang!
Best fighting game ever...V 15 Comments
No doubt about it! Definitely the best game I ever played, and DAMN That I have played a TON of good games, but not any like this one! Not even the previous Smash games compares, specially Brawl, is a bit slow actually, which is ironic since the fastest thing alive were in this game, but this is not about Brawl, IS ABOUT SMASH 4! EPIC AND I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO RECOMMEND THIS GAME BECAUSE YOU PROBABLY ALREADY HAVE IT!
Better than melee for a lot of reasons: more characters and stages, new melee copies are out of print, not ridiculously over centralized with less OP characters, eight player smash.
Love this so much, all my favorite characters are in it, there was a perfectly balance between brawl and Melee to make it accessible and fun
Let me just say that people who say Melee and Project M is better than this. Y'all are stupid. Smash 4 improves the physics and balances the roster a bit more evenly (except for Greninja and Bayonetta and Cloud). This game also takes practice and time to master almost every character. There is not one bad character. While the stages lack on the Wii U version. The 3DS Version has about 20 good stages out of about 30 which is impressive. This game would be better if Smash Tour didn't replace Subspace. Smash Tour isn't bad, but Subspace 2 would have been better. Smash 5 should be like this but enhanced graphics, Subspace 2 and less clones.V 11 Comments
The crazy 56 character roster, mad fast-paced action and just excellent craft should have this one AT LEAST in Top 5 in my opinion.
Yeah this should be higher up - nytrizzle
Ok to make the point clear to the DBZ haters, look because the game is from a series that you don't like (which by the way I love) that shouldn't automatically make you hate the game. I for a fact know someone (actually my cousin) who hates dragon ball z (or anime as a whole) but will play these games for HOURS. Best fighting game ever.
A very good Dragon Ball game and a good fighting game, with a lot of characters. (By the way this game is not from 2004, it was released in 2007) - LDes
Best fighting game
And have many players. in this game we do fusion and also become super saiyan
And learn combo attack to defeat opponent easily
BEST GAME EVERV 7 Comments
Best fighting game because of all the marvel and capcom characters I'm getting this game. I love it for its insane gameplay.
Should be higher has really intricate gameplay and plenty of tactics for high level play, and the excellent aesthetics compliment it very well, great game.
This is bull. This is my favorite fighter and it's this low.

Street Fighter II is the game that jump started the Fighting series genre. It may not have a complexed story, but gameplay is decent and well developed, and most of the characters are extremely likeable.
Street Fighter is like one of the first fighting games ever therefore it practically inspired most of these fighting games you can't beat that! That's like reaching the impossible!
This was the True inauguration, not only to its predecessor, but to the fighting game genre itself; with many other fighting games coming in as a joint second place: depending on your personal preference.
BEST FIGHTING GAME OF ALL TIME!V 7 Comments
The best fighting game ever it has great roster and the story mode and devil within mode are great
My best characters are =
Tekken is my favourite fighting game. Tekken 5 is my favourite Tekken. Awesome.
The best tekken game ever
I actually think the fighting was the best thing in the game especially the air combat it's like the only mortal kombat where special moves didn't really matter
Story mode is great and I love the fighting in it but they kinda screwed up with versus mode, there are no combos but in the story mode is awesome.
Had every mortal kombat character it was great for mortal kombat nerds
It's The Best Fighting GameEver - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER
Tekken 2 is the best Tekken
Come on, you know it is the best...
Sf 4 is awesome
Soul Calibour 4 is the best fighting game, its really really fun to play, in my opinion it's better than all the rest soul calibours
This is the best fighting game this should have been #1
How is this 47 should be 1 dummies
A masterpiece of a game
Best fighting superhero gameV 5 Comments
I personally loved it more then 5 because you get to put your character in the intro and your character can even have an ending and finishing moves are awesome and when you customize a character and they can even look like that in there ENDING - GamerGirl
Why is it so low on the list
Big fan but it will not be number 1 never, excellent graphics, good voice acting, very good gameplay, pretty decent modes in general, mediocre story mode, good ideas for online modes, quite solid netcode but not impressive, variation system good in most of the cases but it's main problem it's the roster, pretty boring, 24 it's not that much having a couple of characters who look very similar, plus DLC characters after 2 weeks of release it's shame.
In conclusion it's good fighting game with a couple of missing things that can't be restored having boring micro transactions. Don't know if Tekken 7 but I'm pretty sure Street Fighter V will be better.
Why is it not 1
As good as it gets with an arcade stick.
If you don't think 3rd strike is the best fighter of all time you're wrong and you should feel bad for being wrong.
I am playing this since 2000 and it's all player move, combo, punch, kick, power are unique than others. It is one of the hardest but easiest to learn the move and combo. you will like it when your opposite player is human
King of fighters is the best fighting game. No overdone combos, no exaggerated camera view and colors. Moves are simple and the game is easy to understand. Plus, it's a 2D fighter in HD look. The classic fighting games were 2D and now you have it in HD. Every fighting game fan should try this game.
I love this game it's great just like KOF 98
Best doa game in my opinion 5 had better graphics new moves and costumes but there was just something about 4 I like a lot more
Please man, This game is ROCKS!
Because it's so aesome and fight new people - kid626
An excellent roster of characters all fine tuned to perfection. Each one has a good backstory and very original character design. The chain combo's are awesome and its easy to become engrossed in the fun for hours!
Good game with loads of characters
YES! Sorry but ki will always be best in my opinion. C-C-C-COMBOBREAKER!
It was a good game
Takken is no.1? Don't get me wrong, I like Tekken but Mortal Kombat fighters destroy the whole Tekken in 5 seconds. MK influenced tekken in many aspects. MK is the most creative and unique fighting game - Magnolia
It's just a timeless classic.
This game created the ESPN voting on games. How the hell is it No. 9?
Mk2 is better in my opinion
Mortal Kombat 2 is the greatest MK game there is. It had all of the charm and great aspects of the first one, plus a lot more characters and all new game mechanics. This was "THE" ultimate fighting game of its time and it's still a great game today!
The only thing I hated about it was 'Toasty! '
It happens third time you uppercut and I never played it again
Soul Calibur II, greatest Soul Calibur ever - CastlevaniaFanboy128
The best tekken ever...
Even better than the first one! Better rosters, epic storyline, and awesome multiplayer! Easily one of the best Video Games of 2017. 10/10
Amazing game roster is the most amazing ever I hope they make a third
Obviously better than its predecessor, voice acting, graphics and more. All amazing - Vegeta40049
Best fighting game. DC game>>>>>>>>>>>Marvel gameV 1 Comment
This game deserved be in the TOP TENV 1 Comment
Best graphics... More than 50 characters to select.. Very cool fighting arena.. Many exciting mini games... This is one of the best!
This is an AMAZING Crossover between 2 of the best fighting franchises out there. What's not to love?
Good game with characters of Street Fighter and Tekken
best fight game. In arcade, you and your friend or mom... And fight together vs the PlayStation...
Should be higher has the anime feel
UNDRERATED is this games middle name.
This wonderful game introduced Hara-Kiri fatality plus almost every character had his/her own voice. Amazing game with superb graphics and very interesting konquest mode - Magnolia
Hands down. This fighting game needs to be at least top 5. Why? The use of crossover characters, the wonderful graphics, the game's release in 1999 with it, the awesome music, this has got to be one of the most underrated video game with general acclaim from reviewers. The gameplay and multiplayer make this game one of the best games of all time!
