Video Game Challenge Day 10: Fighting games

“Favorite fighting game”

I used to play more fighting games than I do now. I still like a good one now and then but my favorites aren’t the most hardcore ones.

Whether Super Smash Bros. counts as a fighting game is often debated and I’m not going to get into that.

My favorite more traditional fighting game is probably Tatsunoko vs. Capcom. I’m not even sure exactly why I like it better than the Marvel vs. Capcom games…well, MvC 2 had terrible balance and MvC 3 had on-the-disc paid “DLC”, so I guess that’s two reasons.

There was a time when Capcom made fighting games that weren’t Street Fighter or Vs., though. Power Stone and Tech Romancer are two great, innovative games that seem unlikely to get sequels.
