Best Fighter of 2013

1/2 circle forward + punch. Must of us have, at one point, used this command. It is part of our gaming heritage. Things have become far more complex since this command was instituted, but we still enjoy fighting games. Given that, here are our nominees for best fighting game of 2013.

  • Injustice: Gods Among Us
  • Killer Instinct
  • Guilty Gear

And we are giving it to Injustice: Gods Among Us. Take away everything that sucked about about 2008's mediocre Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, add in a whole bunch of stuff that is awesome (very comic booky story line, good combo mechanics, varied characters, and some DLC that was actually good), and you've got Injustice: God's Among Us, described pretty well.  Plus, you have to give props to any game that makes Aquaman a certified badass.
