    Meh.

    So you've got DOA there, but not VF?

    Between those four? Street Fighter, no doubt about it. Especially 3rd Strike. Interesting selection though, there are far better series out there than MK or DOA.

    I'm with Gori & Kalel - why exclude VF & SC? Or is it which is the 3rd best figher?

    Street Fighter 2 has always been my favourite, although I am really enjoying MK:Unchained on the PSP at the moment.

    Primal Rage FTW!

    I just chose the 4 most well-known I could think of.
    I suppose I should have added VF and Toshinden too.

    Let me rephrase the question for you then. :-)

    (2D) Street Fighter (incl. Vs series) vs Garou vs Guilty Gear vs King of Fighters?

    (3D) Virtua Fighter vs Tekken vs Soul Calibur vs Rival Schools?

    This is probably the hardest choice ever.

    As much as I love Street Fighter for its nostalgic value, brilliant music and style, and nice bonus stages, I think I'm going to have to say Tekken.

    I liked the counter system in DOA, and MK took up a lot of my time as a youngster too, but Tekken just seems to have that 'bit extra' as a lot of the characters have an insane amount of moves, taken from all different fighting styles, and its cool and fast as hell, the only downside being that the game favours button-bashers too much.

    If I saw this thread tomrrow I may have said Street Fighter but, not including the Street Fighter Alpha series and MvC etc, the original Street Fighter was just a little shallow after a while, and Tekken feels like a more complete fighter.

    ***edit

    I didn't realise people were picking other fighters other than those in the thread title (you naughty bunch) so if I had to name my fave fighter of all time it would be without a shadow of a doubt Marvel vs Capcom 2.

    Rival Schools is 2d in the same way as the new sonic PSP game is. I would also argue that Street Fighter EX is better than Rival Schools too. I know its not rated by some but I fucking love that series.

    Aaaaaaanyway

    3D: Tekken>VF>Soul Calibur>DoA

    2D: SF>GG>KoF>Garou

    You can't include Vs games with street fighter, they are too different.
    I know, I know, how about a third category then? ;-)

    (Street Fighter) II vs III vs CvS vs EX vs MvC vs XvS?

    My top 5 beat-em-ups:
    1) Street Fighter 2 Turbo
    2) Mortal Kombat 2
    3) Def Jam FFNY
    4) Mortal Kombat Unchained
    5) Tekken 3

    Side-scrollers are a different story...

    Yup, that'd be my choice. No 3D beat-em-up on any console can touch the DC's Soul Calibur with the DC arcade stick...
