Crappy gameplay, but it pioneered the style for which Mortal Kombat wound up taking all the credit. For 1990, it was way ahead of its time.

Anyway, enough history. This is my favorite old school fighting game:

Ehh, even though it involved fighting, I wouldn't call Double Dragon a "fighting game", per say. It would have been classified as more of a side-scrolling BEAT-'EM-UP.

Fighter's History, made by Data East. It was basically a total rip off of Street Fighter II. They got sued for it and had to pull all of their arcade machines off the market. I got to play it a couple of times before it went away.

Oh Ivan... What have you started.

Love me some Samurai Shodown 2. And SFA3. Now I'm gonna have to go home and drop GT4 again and pick up the joysticks again.
