Is KI in your top 10 of fighting games?

This post was flagged by the community and is temporarily hidden.

Its not on my list and dont have a list.

  1. SSFIV (Chun-li main)
  2. Ultimate UMK3 (MKT) (Kabal main)
  3. Killer Instinct (Sadira main)
  4. SC2 (Ivy main)
  5. SF 2 (hyper) (Chun-li main)
  6. MK9 (Kitana main)
  7. Primal Rage (Diablo main)
  8. FF: Dissidia (Cloud Strife… then again who didn’t main Cloud Strife in this game?)
  9. Darkstalkers (Jon Tobian)
  10. SCV (Ivy main)

But… if there’s no list… how do you know… it’s not on… the list?

This is some deep, next level stuff.

  1. Killer Instinct
  2. Soul Calibur 3
  3. Mortal Kombat: Deception
  4. Soul Calibur 4
  5. Primal Rage
  6. Tekken 3
  7. Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign
  8. Soul Calibur 5
  9. Dead or Alive 4

These are not the only fighting games I’ve played, but it’s damn near close. I cannot play a Street Fighter game. I don’t know what puts me off about it, but I can’t. I can’t go back to play the MK games before Deception, and I can’t justify buying the newer ones since I only like them for the story nowadays.

Guilty Gear is my most recent pickup, and I like it well enough so far that I can justify putting it over SCV. My top 6 is tough to break though for me. There’s just so many memories of me and my best friend, of 16 years, just spending hours on Tekken 3. Dr. B all the way!!!

Edit: Also, yeah I know I put DOA4 on there. Bring the HATE!


I cannot deny KI a spot in my top ten any longer. Not after witnessing the top competition doing their thing at the World Cup, seeing the season 3 balance changes, the ongoing support and hype among the community members.

What counts for me? The experience and ride has been awesome thus far. Now give me Tusk!..Please…?

Killer Instinct is my favorite fighting game. Definitely my favorite.
It didn’t start that way but it has grown on me so much.

Yeah its up there.

  5. Virtual Fighter 2 (Saturn)
  6. Tekken 3 (PS)
  7. MK 10 (Xbox One)
  8. Dead or Alive 2 (Dreamcast)

I’m not going to bother making a list because KI has made me not want to play any of the fighters I use to.

Lol KI is the only fighting game I ever took seriously.

Same here KI all day.

I’ve recently had a Renaissance with fighting games because of ki. I spent an hour with the original ki and sf.
This ki I’ve spent a lot more time with than any other game ever. So it’s top of my list. I can only imagine a big budget versionot of it.

I have only had the game since like late December but the answer is still a yes. KI has already become my 2nd favorite fighting franchise of all time (MK has been a part of my life since I was like 3/4 so it will always be my #1) but KI is amazing. Its characters, story/lore, music, stages, atmosphere etc. are all top notch and fit my tastes perfectly. I love it lol

  1. Tekken 3
  2. Capcom Vs SNK 2
  3. Street Fighter III: Third Strike
  4. Killer Instinct (XBONE)
  5. Tekken Tag Tournament 2
  6. Ultra Street Fighter 4
  7. Rival Schools
  8. Garou: Mark Of The Wolves
  9. Persona 4: Ultimax
  10. Street Fighter Alpha 3

I think we need a top 3 or top 5 poll. It has become too easy for KI. Already in so many players’ top 10.

Historically, i’d say my fav fighting games (not doin sequels - just franchises) have been:

  1. SF
  2. MK
  3. KI

HOWEVER, from a game perspective in the past 2-5 years, i’d say:

  1. KI
  2. MK
  3. SF

since i’m not that good and i just play with friends or wife for fun, cool characters is the most important part (cool and quantity). KI has the most diverse cast (i haven’t played the anime fighters,so can’t compare) and each character is very unique.

SF V looks to have unique characters (ie. Ken/Ryu seem to have major differences now -as opposed to teh same moves with just frame data, and minor changes between them – sorry, a fireball that moves faster or does extra hits is NOT totally unique from a basic fireball, etc).

Either way, KI cast will always rock, and the netcode makes it awesome. Waiting till I can preorder Season 3…didn’t see it in Xbox.

But also playing MK X and preordered SF V :slightly_smiling:
