PlayStation / Namco / 1998
Guessed by BraLoD
Ever since I was a kid, I always had a problem with fighting games - I just could never get involved with them because I simply never felt like playing with their characters. Then I got Tekken 3 and never had that issue again. This game had some awesome characters and locations besides being, in my opinion at least, superior to other fighting games at the time - but really, them characters! There were loads of great ones, such as Heihachi, Jin, Hwoarang, Yoshimitsu and the list just goes on and on. I liked most of them and up to this day this was the only fighting game I actually managed to play and enjoy with several characters, though nowadays if I picked it up again I'd most likely just play Jin forever. This game had a huge variety of mainline game modes and it also featured some hilarious modes that were also still great (wasn't there a tennis of sorts?). But seriously, Tekken 3 was awesome.
