Namco / Capcom / ONE37pm

There was just something magnetic about the PS1 that attracted the attention of publishers/developers who were keen on porting over its most revered fighting games at the time. Capcom, Namco, Hudson Soft, SNK, and more are all responsible for making the first Sony home video game console a destination for fighting game fans. Popular genre franchises such as Tekken, Street Fighter, and Bloody Roar could be seen side by side with lesser-known but equally exciting brawlers such as Star Gladiator, Gundam: Battle Assault 2, and Dead or Alive. On this list of the best PS1 fighting games, we're going to showcase a vast library of games that provided tons of fun for local gamers squabbing it out during the mid to late 90s and early 00s.
