Well, recently i got Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 (actually, not recently, more like a month or two ago, still playing it though) and i'm really starting to get into it, so, i felt like making a thread, "Whats your FAVORITE fighting game and Why?". Well, so far, it's either This or Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, but i'll go with DBZ:BT3, reason being: 1 - It's accomodated to players of both types, the button mashers, and the intricate strategic fighters. 2 - It's got an insane amount of replayability what with 161 characters to choose from, including the transformations since the transformations make your character stronger, give them different specials and moves, and obviously makes them look different, plus the 20+ open arenas to fight in, on land, water, even in space, plus their all destructible to an extent. 3 - As i was talking about earlier, it's got strategy in it, as in, you can block and counter nearly every single attack in the game, also landing in chain attack combos after a successfull counter, or the counter could trigger a combo. 4 - Modes, their are so many modes in this game, story, duel (3 kinds of different duel modes, Player vs NPC, NPC vs NPC, Player vs. Player, plus 3 MORE kinds of battles, single, team battle, and point based, where in point based, the number of players you can pick depends on their point level such as an 8 or a 5 which, with other characters added on would have to meet the set number), Tournament, Survival (you have to unlock it), ultimate battle (gives you scenarios to battle in and gain points to unlock upgrades, i'll get to that later), Battle SIM, which is like a sort of slightly worked on RPG, and an online mode, which isn't too great because of lag. 5 - Theirs plenty of depth to it, such as clashes, where when 2 players dragon rush at eachother they have a huge ass exchange of punches by rotating the analog stick for a small amount of time, the one with the more punches is dealt all the damage and is thrown backwards and other clashes like when 2 characters do a special at the same time they rotate the analog stick to put more force and deal more damage then the special would have done anyway, AND, the more bars a character gets down, the less effective in a fight he becomes, as he gets more ragged and beat up and starts holding his chest. And finally, on some semi rare occasions, some moves are so powerful (if your on an earth level) that if you do them in full power mode it goes to an orbital view of the entire planet and a huge explosion then your in a completely desolated area of what was ONCE your arena. I'm sure i could go on and on about how detailed the fighting system is, and don't worry, theirs a specialized trainer for all 3 kinds of controllers, nun-chucks, wii classic, and Gamecube, with 3 different levels of training, basic, moderate, and advanced. Heres a little glimpse at what to expect, it's the best vid i could find by the way, showing the best of what to encounter.
Hehe, that series also just happens to be my favourite as well. I never really liked fighting games, and never got into the Mortal Combat, Soul Callibur scene - but the DBZ games were always so much deeper and more entertaining than your classical fighting game.
I have that one for the Wii, unfortunately i haven't touched it in a while.
Did you just say DBZ is deeper than most classical fighting games? Deeper than some, like Mortal Kombat and DOA, but you'd be burned at the stake in the hardcore fighter community if you said that about Street Fighter 2, Guilty Gear, Tekken, or Virtua Fighter.

I've never cared for Tekken, mortal kombat is pretty deep too, NOW, what with Klose Kombat, Falling Kombat, piledriving people through walls and with combos and fatalities. Although, DBZ is VERY deep too, just because it was an anime show doesn't discredit how good the game is though, it's probably the best fighting game derived from a show yet.
DBZ is epic but i think thats because I'm a fanatic so....
I have to say the old old old street fighters or the old old old tekens
DBZ is huge where I live, Bigger than super smash brothers, My friends and I play it at every gathering we have. Though I do have to say DOA4 (mainly for the women and japanese voice over) and Soul calibur (the one with link in it) Are my favourite fighting games. I'm tempted to get guilty gears but I should check out some gameplay vids first.
