Time moves way too fast, especially for gamers. Over the course of a decade, console lifespans begin and end while an onslaught of memorable titles floods the market. One of the healthiest and most rewarding genres that gave us great games from 2010 to 2019 is certainly the fighting-game genre.
Capcom, Bandai Namco, Arc System Works and Sega have released a slew of fighters that have dominated the fighting-game community and produced the most exciting matches at major fighting-game tournaments. Non-Japanese game developers have also done their part in developing acclaimed fighters.
Let’s send this decade out on a high note by looking back on the very best fighting games that have defined two console generations. Here’s hoping that 2020 to 2029 will be just as fruitful as the decade we’re about to finish. 2020 is already shaping up to be one of the best years ever for gamers.
