View Full Version : Which type of fighting game do you prefer?

10-22-2010, 03:20 AM
The title more or less explains it all. I'm curious as too which type of fighting game people prefer to play online with others. Do you prefer 3d ones like EA: sports mma, fight nights, & soul calibur or 2d ones like the street fighters & marvel vs. capcom.

i prefer the 2d like MvC. i've always been better at them.

They're both good for different reasons, but I really prefer to play 3d fighting games like Soul Calibur. 3d fighting games give the player way more options when fighting. You can only do so much on a 2d fighting game, but there's a lot more moves you can do in a 3d fighting game.

WWE games if they count

If not then games like Tekken 6, Street Fighter 4, MvC2 (and 3 eventually)

I prefer 2-D ones. I grew up playing the heck out of Street Fighter 2, Mortal Kombat 2, Killer Instinct and Super Street Fighter 2 on the SNES so thats what I'm most used to. I do like some of the 3-d games though.

2D like BlazBlue, StreetFighter etc.

2D by far. Although 3D for fighters isn't bad when executed properly.

3D, I think. Eh, I dont really care tbh.

10-23-2010, 01:51 AM
2D always for a quick one to one battle.

For me it's not a matter of 2d versus 3d as there's often no difference in how the game is set out to play physically.

Although I gre up playing SF and SNK beat Em Ups and will always have a soft spot for the directional movement specials, I really enjoyed how Tekken went about it a little more technically, with an approach borrowed by UFC each limb corresponded to a particular button but more in keping with Street Fighter than it's more intimate brethren such as Virtua Fighter. I abhor it's timing based based play.

That said, the 2d Fire Pro Wrestling serries, particularly Fire Pro Wrestling D is my all time favourite fighter. Completely based around timing and spacial awareness, it's "Ro-sham-bo" approach still works and makes for a very capable console game.

I can't talk about fighter without mentioning the huge differences between the PSX Smackdown series and the N64 AKI/THQ wrestling games from WCW Revenge right up until WWE NO Mercy. Smackdown approached things in an arcade type of way where THQ's approach built arguably the best beat em ups to grace the N64. No Mercy and Wrestlemania 2000 are remembered as classics. The modern Raw Vs Smackdown has attempted unsuccessfully to fuse the Smackdown franchise and the good work done by AKI but in doing so have forgotten what made the AKI games so great.

I've not voted. I select a third choice. "Monkey".

I grew up with it, and it's still my favorite to this day.
I still have my first fighting game ever too (:
Street Fighter II on the Genesis.
<3 it.

I never use to like fighting games because I sucked at it LOL but Blazblue was just one those game that I actually liked anime FTW and I kinda got the hang of it still trying to get that 100 challenges achievement did only 4 characters so far pretty difficult for me might have to pick up a fight stick.

Anyway back to OT: 2D was my pick never did like any wrestling and mma games

MMA I like more, doesnt need button bashing to do the moves unlike most other fighting games.

Games like Dragon Ball: Raging Blast and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Storm 2 are my cup of tea.

Well I have to agree with some above, I know I am nearly 30 and need to grow up, but I love the WWE games, sooo much fun, if I had to pick a pure fighter though, I like the best of both worlds - 2D&3D = Tekken 6, It's by far my favourite, but I am also a sucker for Streetfighter and Mortal Kombat, with my favourite being Streetfighter 2 Turbo (SNES) and Mortal Kombat Armageddon (PS2).

Must shout out to Def Jam Fight For New York, that game was mind blowing on the PS2!

The Soulcalibur series all the way especially 4

Well it depends a lot. I think Tekken 3 was 2D(?). I loved it back in those days and played it for hours and hours. Unlocked every character and did the survivor campaign or what is was called and then played with friends also for many many hours :p

Nowadays I can't play 2D Street Fighter games, don't know why, maybe I've played too much todays games with 3D graphics :/ So I voted for 3D fighting games: I liked Soul Calibur demo, never played the full retail game (yet), also Tekken 6 was quite good, even though it was completely different from Tekken 3.

I'm not a huge fan of fighters so I don't really have a strong opinion about the type.

Street Fighters are more for people who want to take the time to sit there and memorize endless amounts of button mashing combinations, thats just not for me, even though there are a few pros to them, MMA/SoulCalibur type games have quicker/shorter combinations that are a lot easier to use and I would put them much higher on my list of games to play

10-24-2010, 07:36 PM
2D, not question.

I know this might ruffle some feathers, but I find games like VF to feel extremely clunky and disjoint. I know these games are skill based, but whenever I play them, it just feels like everything comes out 2 seconds after I press the buttons.

I usually prefer Tekken, but MvC is always good fun.
