    I can't say I'm a huge fan of MvC, but I *AM* a huge fan of Capcom vs. SNK. That game on the Dreamcast was amazing (despite the god-awful DC dpad). The "vs" series as a whole has been really good.

    I do feel that you are correct on MvC bein a spinoff of SF but the game has come to be its on thing. It was a hard decision but I feel that the success of MvC and quality of the franchise beats SF for the number one spot.

    Pretty good list, but I'd have to put Street Fighter series #1. Also I think a couple of 3D franchises deserve to be on the list:

    Marvel vs. Capcom - great games to be sure, but as a franchise it's just a spinoff from SF and doesn't have *that* many games in it.
    Killer Instinct - I love the games, but there weren't that many. The franchise died pretty early

    5) Super Smash Bros - unique oddball fighter that sold a bajillion copies on each platform it touched.
    4) Virtua Fighter - Long running, ground-breaking 3d fighter. Lots of quality games
    3) Mortal Kombat - I agree w/ Dhalamar, it kind of died after 3, but Armageddon was pretty good and the new one looks promising.
    2) Soul Calibur - debut was stunning, and has had many successful iterations. More fun for me than VF, so edges it out slightly.
    1) Street Fighter - the one and only, true King.

    For the record, Mortal Kombat ceased to be interesting starting with MK3 ... with the exception of Shaolin Monks, but that's not a fighting game. That's a beat 'em up. :P

    And I personally think the graphics have held up beautifully. That old source engine still has a hell of a lot of "steam" in it (no pun intended :P )

    LOL so true....

Still would rather have a mouse and keyboard over dual analog joysticks for ANY fps tho!

    Look forward to reading more of your stuff - even reviews of 6+ year old games!
