Forums - Gaming Discussion - which fighting game takes the most skill?

Street Fighter, without a doubt.

Around the Network

Street Fighter 3, Tekken, Virtua Fighter.

However, depth doesn't equal quality for fun.

For my money, the best fighting games are the Tekken series, followed by Brawl, and Street Fighter(3, not 2).

I'm leaving out KoF, because I know somebody in particular who will be angered by its absence, lol!

DoA and Soul Calibur are good games, but they can't match the complexity found in those top 3 fighters. However, neither can Brawl, and it is very complex. These fighters are very complex, they are just not the MOST complex.

I don't need your console war.
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor.
You're power hungry, spinnin' stories, and bein' graphics whores.

Tekken or SSB. I like SC but I can button mash and win easily....


I can guard impact and win easily against button mashers...

that said I think in VF there is still a bit more skill involved than in SC.
