Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter

Posted 01 October 2009 - 05:50 AM

Hi everybody, i'm new to this forum so be gentle lol.

Myself and a friend were discussing the beat 'em up genre the other day and got onto the subject of Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter, which is the best?

I personally said Mortal Kombat because of it's development (the blue screen actors). My friend said he didn't care how they are made and that the gameplay of Street Fighter far outweighed Mortal Kombats. We ended up not being able to come to a conlclusion as our opinions differed too much.

What do you guys think? It doesn't have to be about those two games, comment about any beat 'em up, social impact, engine development etc.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Hmm...Mortal kombat had the better movie and soundtrack, but Street Fighter did have Kylie Monigue in hotpants. Tough call :D

How could you miss out Tekken in such an important discussion?! :o

Personally, I'd say Street Fighter, too. HADOKEN.

I was king of Street Fighter two in it's day. My favorite characters to use were Dhalsim or Blanka. I never did get the hang of Mortal Kombat.

We should have an online Street Fighter / Mortal Kombat tournament!

I have it on PS3, but my PS3 has no internet connection. If we can get enough people to actually get it on PC (click) I'd be willing to get it on my laptop, and maybe trade in my PS3 version.

Tekken was awesome!

I rocked Vega as well back in the day. Then Soul Calibur ruined his style with Voldo.

Hehe, I was just kidding....No mention of Tekken because that wasn't what the OP and his friend were talking about. To be honest, I never played much Tekken, so wouldn't really know how it compares to Street Fighter.
