About Fighting Games

These are the most famous. Surely you have already lost hours and hours in some fighting game.

The genre called fighting consists of electronic games in which the characters face each other directly. There is a direct confrontation. Of course, in many cases there is a well-defined and structured story, such as the wonderful Mortal Kombat, but this is not the main focus.

The stories of fighting games

The first type of this genre gave rise to the "street fight" style, also called beat'em-up. Examples include Streets of Rage, Double Dragon and Final Fight, or "versus" such as Street Fighter, Tekken and The King of Fighters.

There is also another type of this genre known as "Versus." Currently it is the most widespread and wins lovers wherever it goes. Remember Mortal Kombat? He is a good example of the genre. If you lived with PlayStation 1, you should remember Marvel x Capcom.

Speaking of Capcom, we need to point out that it was she who started the fighting video game revolution.

Since she was responsible for creating the most excellent Street Fighter. This game introduced fights as we know it today, with a “one on one” game system.

Where fights are individual, in a round system and of course watered by the special blows we love.

Then games of the genre became increasingly popular, to the point that children knew how to decorate the special blows of games.

But in 96 a new revolution occurs, this time completely changing the way we viewed our favorite games. This year, Sega launched Virtua Fighter, featuring the first 3D graphics.

Contrary to popular belief, Tekken was not the first fighting game ever released in 3D, but rather the Virtua Fighter, which was then developed for the 32x Mega Drive accessory.
