IGN’s latest list of the 10 best fighting games has sparked a lot of debate and questions for the publication’s picks, so why isn’t the biggest content creator in the FGC doing its own thing?
After painstakingly narrowing down his choices, Maximilian Dude released a new video of what he believes to be the top 10 fighting games to hit arcades/consoles.
As Max points out at the start of the video, these picks aren’t personal favorite fighting games, but rather titles that have made a huge impact and changed the landscape of the genre that will still be heard in 2023.
Kicking things off at number 10 is Soul Calibur 2, which Max believes revolutionized 3D fighting games for a new era, appearing on every major console at the time, offering tons of content and introducing the idea of platform-specific unique characters. Make sure you’re a huge fan of the game – plus when that idea was tried again, it never came up.
Some say Super Smash Bros. You might be a little surprised to see Ultimate only at number 9, but that doesn’t change how much fun the developers managed to cram into the game, which is highly polished and the hardest ever. Again at the top.
We won’t spoil everything, so check out Max’s explanation and list of the 10 best fighting games to enjoy the show below, and let us know in the comments how much you agree with the picks.
