Top 10 Fighting Games
With the excitement of Evo 2022 behind us, we wanted to take a look at fighting game history and form a collection of the 10 best fighting games. From SFV to Guilty Gear, Mortal Kombat, and DBFZ, and even more recent ones like DNF Duel, Melty Blood Type Lumina, and KOF 15, there were tons of games to consider.
A note about our criteria: we’ve excluded platform fighters such as the Smash Bros series as that’s important enough to be a list on its own; we only have one game representing each series, and while legacy can play a big part, they must offer robust mechanics and still be fun to play today.
List collectively chosen by: Ronny Barrier, Mitchell Saltzman, Emeka Nwosu, Kate MacPherson, Tate Fiebing, Aaron Smith, and Will Borger.
Individual entries written by: Ronny Barrier, Mitchell Saltzman, Emeka Nwosu, Tate Fiebing, Aaron Smith, and Will Borger.
