Top 10 Best Pro Wrestling Video GamesPro wrestling games are a unique breed in the gaming universe. They allow you to step into the ring as your favorite wrestling icons, pull off their signature moves, and take part in some of the most memorable feuds and storylines in wrestling history. And let's not forget the epic joy of winning championship belts and hoisting them above your head, all from your living room.
So, which ones are the best pro wrestling video games? Ah, that's the million-dollar question, isn't it? Over the years, we've seen the evolution of wrestling games, from their humble, pixelated beginnings to the current, graphically impressive renditions that are almost indistinguishable from the real deal. Perhaps you favor the nostalgia of retro games like "WWF No Mercy", with its classic roster and intuitive gameplay, or the immersive, next-gen graphics and mechanics of games like the "WWE 2K" series?
We've gathered a comprehensive list of some of the most influential, popular, and downright fun pro wrestling games. But we want you in on this. We're inviting you to dive off the top rope and make your voice heard by voting for the games you believe truly deserve a spot in the wrestling game hall of fame.
Are you a stickler for authenticity, preferring games that painstakingly recreate the look and feel of wrestling broadcasts? Or do you enjoy the arcade-style, over-the-top action where realism takes a back seat? Perhaps you love the freedom of creating your own wrestling legacy with an original character in career modes?
I have so many good memories of playing this game back when I was in elementary school. Here Comes The Pain is such a complete game with amazing gameplay, a complete roster, and a really fun season mode. I wish my PS2 was still working, so I could go back and play one of my favorite childhood games and enjoy the nostalgia.
The story mode is epic. Incredible roster of wrestlers to choose from. Plus it was the first WWE game to use the Elimination Chamber Match.
One of the best wrestling games out there right. Many wrestling games came close but were far from perfecting the formula.
I've been playing it for 4 years now ever since it came out I know all the grapple the strikes I'm the Undefeated legend from HELL!
It's amazing it's so fun good roster good gameplay fun match types its very fun and supreme game. ITS awesome!
The best mix of gameplay and story. This has everything you would want in a wrestling game. Very underrated.
The General Manager mode made it the BEST. I wish WWE 13 had GM mode that was as good as this.
The whole game was awesome and in ring side there was a place full of weapons
A simple yet effective control system, beautiful animations and a wide variety of moves make No Mercy the best American wrestling game.
No mercy tops them all
Why is this not #1?
Great game. Love it. Very addictive... Great graphics.. Counters are also good.. Realistic enough...
This game is awesome! I bought the game used from GameStop recently and the whole reason I got the game is because of the attitude era mode.
Great Game... More Focus on the Attitude Era and great gameplay and awesome graphics as well...
Great story mode
Tna sucked, I can't believe I wasted 5 bucks at a yard sale for it, never making that mistake again, but this game was great. The one thing that always bugs me though is that has anyone ever noticed how undertakers entrance always is off, in all games, I mean that he should let his coat drop to the floor but he doesn't.
This game was way better than anything before 09, and I would vote for svr11, but I hate universe mode. Its stupid and is unfortunately going to be on wwe12, but I still can't wait for 12 to come out.
Ask anybody and they will tell you; this game is one of the greatest of all time. Try it!
First wrestling game I played, much better than any of the crappy 2K games.
This felt so refined, that's why it's my favorite wrestling game.
It's SO DANG EPIC! I even have a wining streak in this game its fun relly relistic it should be like 1 or 2 I was playing my first match when I got the game I was cena I was fighting orton it was back and fort and it lasted 14 mins. it was very fun the roster is good fun match types and its just a fun game!
MOST realistic wresling gameplay ever. BEST roster ever. 1st Ever & BEST GM mode of the series. Some of the BEST commentary in wrestling video games...
I loved riding in the ring as Undertaker on his motorcycle. Awesome!
This game is by no means the best wrestling or WWE game ever but its definitely better than the last two 2k games and WWE 12 and 13. I was never big on the s vs r series either all though there was one or two which were good. 2008 was pretty good. but 2k16 is a step back to the likes of the smackdown series of games.
Wcw was way better than wwf. Wwf ruined wrestling. Now a days wrestling is sham
This game should have a better ranking...
