Rank the best 2D and 3D fighters

crystalmethod and I are working on catagorizing games by genre and trying to rank them.

Since the Sega consoles have a great abundance of excellent fighting games, I figured we would start with them. I'm also a bit of a connoisseur of 2D fighters.

I'm separating the 2D and 3D fighters since IMO they are very different.

I have ranked the games I am familiar with in order of what I think of them.

If I have left some exceptional game, please let me know.

Also please advise me of any adjustments in ranking that should be made.

I would like 2 votes for different people to be made in order for an actual change to be made.

Fighting 2D:

Street Fighter Alpha 2 - Saturn

Street Fighter Alpha 3 - Dreamcast

Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - Dreamcast

Fatal Fury Mark of the Wolves - Dreamcast

X-Men vs Street Fighter - Saturn

Marvel vs Street Fighter - Saturn

X-Men Children of the Atom - Saturn

Eternal Champions - Genesis

we're only doing ones that are on Sega consoles

the other ones you mentioned --- did you think they should be moved on the list? and if so, where to?

Hm.. gotta add Eternal Champions (original and its Sega CD sequel). Those are a given. Hm.. What're some other good fighters.. Art of Fighting is good on MD/Genny, but of course it's at it's best on an actual Neo Geo.

Edit: I just noticed the Eternal Champions gamse. Hm.. King of Fighters 2000, 2001, and 2002 for DC. Capcom vs SNK and Capcom vs SNK 2 for C. King of Fighters 96, 97, and 98 on Saturn (were 94 and 95 released on Sat?)

Edit 2: Just noticed the Capcom vs SNk games.

It's hard to suggest how you change it without us all submitting our whole list in order.

You missed Street Fighter 3: Double Impact (better conversions than Third Strike IMO), and I really don't think Alpha 3 deserves to be that high given what else is on the list. Personally I'd have MvsC 2 higher than the prequel also.

OK, would somebody who has lots of KOF experience, please rank the different itterations

BTW, '99 Dream Match is basically KOF 98

k -- only did it for the 2D Fighters though

and it would be nice if you could vote for more than one (three maybe)
 
I think people are just gonna keep entering in their own suggestions in which case, as Myname stated, people will just be submitting their own lists.....Cut some of the games that are redundent off...(i.e. who would vote for Dead or Alive on Saturn after DoA2 came out on DC?) and just create a poll....if people's favourites aren't there, they should just vote for what is.

when it comes to redundant games (esp KOF), I don't know which ones to cut.

I've heard '98 and '97 were a good pair. Anybody else agree.

I'll leave the current poll up just to see how it goes.

guilty gear on dc is THE most sexy 2d fighter on any sega console, kof on dc is fuck ugly, guilty gear is bonerlicious
 
Looks like we have a runaway winner...I like that. It shows that everyone can agree that one game is cream of the crop...lets see how this pans out.

yeah I'm suprised nobody has chosen SFA3 at all.

I'd like to see some others get rounded up

nobody else plays any fighters?

20 votes isn't bad, there's not all that many regulars here.

I went for Mark of the Wolves cos I figured it might not get voted for otherwise and it deserves to be up there.
