Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

We don't care for fighting games. Society is violent enough without virtually participating.

Street Fighter is 3rd? P'shaw, uncultured masses.

I was always partial to smash brothers but I did enjoy soul caliber quite a bit too. Regardless this sums up my philosophy to every fighting game I've ever played and I just happen to be wearing it as I type this. http://shirt.woot.com/offers/victory-through-chaos

Guilty Gear ! One of the characters stabs you with their hair. Nothing else needs to be said.

Killer Instinct, Battle Arena Toshinden and Bloody Roar are pretty high on my list. I'm a Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and Tekken fan too! I can't choose just one!

I loved Street Fighter 2, but once they opened it up to Marvel crossover was where I really thought it came together.

Man... My answer keeps changing every time I read a different option. I've never really considered Smash Bros. to be part of the "fighting game" genre--can't really define why though so I guess it is.

I'm going to have to say Street Fighter, basically because it remains pretty great from iteration to iteration (though I hate having 3 to 10 different versions for each title).

Mortal Kombat went pretty downhill after MKII, in my opinion. But the first and second were both great.

But I think Soul Calibur I on the Dreamcast might be my favorite of all.

At the end of the day though, no matter how much I like fighting games, I really really suck at them.

Anything but Super Smash Bros Brawl.

Among my personal favorites are Super Smash 64, Street Fighter 3, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and Soul Caliber 2. I also have some fond memories of Mortal Kombat and the Genesis version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Bushido Blade was pretty awesome and unique.

Not much of a gamer. Had a Commodore 64 with a game called Barbarians. They'd go at each other with swords. If you made the right move, you'd cut the other guy's head off. Loads of fun.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

I voted Tekken as best, but my favorites are Soul Calibur and Super Smash Brothers.

I don't know what people see in Mortal Kombat. It's the same attack every single match. Scorpion hook > punch punch punch > fatality

Finally, no mention of Marvel vs. Capcom? Shame...

Oh man, I'd forgotten about those three. Classic!

I know what I'm going to do when I get home... and then I know what my wife is going to do shortly after.

I rather liked Bloody Roar, too.

Bushido blade. But I think they only made 1 so I guess its technically not a series.

My favorite fighting game series in this poll is dead last. Heh. Virtua Fighter was installed in the game room at the local gas station in my neighborhood when I was a teen. Threw a lot of my Dad's quarters into that machine.
Akira and Pai Chan were my fave characters and I kinda wished I'd developed into a tall, shapely female like Sarah Bryant, with some BA moves like hers, too.

Soul Calibur is spelled with a "u".

Of course Mortal Kombat leading. What a bunch of plebs :P

No MVC2? I would pwn you with Amingo. I can still remember the dumb soundtrack it had on dreamcast. I use to have those songs stuck in my head all day. "I'm gonna take you for a ride"

We are all descendent from the meanest best fighters and will continue to be so. The meek will inherit the right to be martyrs.
