What is it. What's your favorite fighting game? Feel free to choose a series instead of specific installment if you'd like. Also feel free to do a top 3 if one is too limiting. Hell, if you got a top 5 (in order) in you, go for that.

There are definitely better games, but since the first time I played it I've loved the Samurai Shodown series. I buy the games individually and in collections, multiple times.

So what we're saying is you're probably not going to get a consensus here, Scourge

Tekken 3. Eddy Gordo was my dude (of course). Bryan Fury was a guilty pleasure; no need for anything more than basic combos, at most. Unlocking every playable character (including Bosconovitch) was a summer well spent.

2nd place is Street Fighter 2: Turbo C.E.

I just realized this says “best” and not “favorite”. The G.O.A.T. is a toss-up between 3rd Strike & UMVC3.
