It's all down between DoA 5 and TTT2. And it's funny how Best Wii/Wii U nominees are better than best 360 and PS3 game.

Remember people, the voting is for games released in 2012. So don't get all butt hurt because SF4/UMvC3/MK etc... aren't in there.

Captain Obvious reigns supreme.

StriderZero92 said on November 15, 2012 at 6:33 p.m.

if DOA wins i'll be officially disappointed in the fgc -.- lol. Tekken Tag is undisputedly the best fighter this year & the best fighter we've had in a LOOONG while

#10
TaoTuna said on November 15, 2012 at 7:09 p.m.

I would have to give it to TTT2, i don't enjoy it as much as other fighters but it definitely has too much content to not win the award. It does deserve it too.

@11

The FGC is not a FGC, VGAs opinion is as valid as anyone else.

xxMarshy said on November 15, 2012 at 7:13 p.m.

I'm just voting for Persona because the other choices are just 'meh'.

#12
DivinePhoenix69 said on November 15, 2012 at 7:21 p.m.

As awesome of a game that TTT2,im voting for Persona ,mainly because i think its a really great game that needs all the support it can get.also cause i just enjoy 2d fighters more.gotta support the underdogs lol.

No offense to any of the SfxT fans,but ill be pretty disappointed if it ends up winning over the other nominees:/.

being a DOA fanboy i would want DOA5 to win but I'd be kinda surprised if anything other than TTT2 won

#16
AngrySteve said on November 15, 2012 at 7:56 p.m.

God this was a tough choice for me between Persona 4 and Tekken Tag. I had to give it to Tekken Tag simply because they did everything right in the developing and PR for the game.

#17
Aluppoj said on November 15, 2012 at 8 p.m.

SFxT has some issues...

But it's still better than all of these games.

And def better than TRehashT2 part 7. Sorry, at least they tried somthing different.

Flame away.

#18
KleenexGhost said on November 15, 2012 at 8:04 p.m.

DOA is a good game, but I'm torn between Persona 4 and Tekken Tag 2 and I wouldn't underestimate SFxT's chances. Just look at the fan reactions and comments on articles concerning the game and on the forums on EventHubs. Each game has a chance of winning.

#19
JesseRobles said on November 15, 2012 at 8:08 p.m.

It's gonna be between DoA5 and TTT2. Most likely TTT2.

#20
omegamarth said on November 15, 2012 at 8:11 p.m.

No VF5:FS?

It's hands down, better than any of the other games on there, and I'm a Tekken fanboy. Sega really has set the bar too high this time, and I doubt any 3D fighter will ever get there.

#19 "tried something different".
so adding a tag feature to an EVEN MORE DUMBED DOWN SF4 fighting system qualifies it as trying something different? its no less of a rehash you say Tekken is. except your game duped you for its on-disc DLC. Tekken didnt. not to mention Tekken's netcode/online/customization=BETTER.
"better than all these games".
next time, add 'Kappa' so we know youre trolling, sir.

#26
Dark_Obliske said on November 15, 2012 at 9:36 p.m.

@19 jabxtimeout is ok,i actually hope the patch saves it,hopefully they'll add more characters later on

#27
Aluppoj said on November 15, 2012 at 11:40 p.m.

@27

Except I didn't buy any DLC.

And the game has a truck load of new mechanics. Some might say too many! Shows what a clown you are that you know so little about it.

And I like SFxT so little that I platinum'd it in may and went back to AE. Dropped it like a bad habit and I still think its better than rehash Tekken vile.

See fool. I don't play either, and I still think your game is trash.

#29
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 12:01 a.m.

#29 "shows how little u know about it"
except i own a copy, you nerd. the game's basically SF4 with Tekken characters. truckload? LOL are you retarded? Tekken has way more depth than SFxT. youre obviously a Capcom fantard who hates on Tekken because outside of its casual fields, you suck ass & blame the game for your failure. i'd beat you in either fighting game for a fact, & i admit SFxT was GARBAGE, & shouldnt even be an option to vote for against those games LOL. it was a big DISAPPOINTMENT, & i hope this next patch fixes it. i really do

#30
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 12:02 a.m.

@29 LOL & hey, moron. the fact that you didnt buy the DLC is irrelevant, because the content is still on the disc. it's content that was kept from the consumers. forget what i said earlier about DOA, if SFXT wins, i SMDH @ what ppl accept today. DOA, even as a fighter with outrageously obnoxious TnA, was STILL a better package than SFxT was.

#31
DivinePhoenix69 said on November 16, 2012 at 12:04 a.m.

@30....Dad,will you buy me a shotgun?...

#32
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 12:08 a.m.

@29 now, like i said. use 'Kappa', nerd. Dont open your stupid mouth, saying SFxT is better when YOU dnt even like it. LMAO either youre the best Troll, or youre just a flaming idiot! xD which one?

#33
HooliganComboFTW said on November 16, 2012 at 1:09 a.m.

Persona or DoA 5 imo, TTT2 hardly brought anything new to the game from T6. Alot of content does not mean new content. Also This Vote thing is not gonna be reserved for the small and obscure fgc its a public vote filled with casuals and fighter enthusiasts alike

.

#34
Zain23 said on November 16, 2012 at 1:20 a.m.

i would of PMSL if SFxT was in the "Best DLC" category loool
that would of been an epic troll xD

NM_Flamez said on November 16, 2012 at 1:26 a.m.

No VF5: Final Showdown!? For shame!! Tekken deserves the award though.

#36
Rahavic said on November 16, 2012 at 2:12 a.m.

I vote Divekick. The end.

#37
Nago said on November 16, 2012 at 2:38 a.m.

@35
"New" content also doesn't make a good game. Overall quality does.

It's alright though. Like you said, voting is open to casuals and flash always trumps substance at the VGAs as it is. DoA is pretty much the only contender here.

Pass, the VGAs are a joke...
Mass Effect 3 is for GOTY in expense of much better games like Halo 4 and Xenoblade Chronicles. Someone should crowbar-slam the judges some senses into them.

#40
shades_of_grey said on November 16, 2012 at 4:02 a.m.

TTT2, easily. I mostly played Capcom fighters until deciding to dive into TTT2 so I'm no Namco fanboy or what have you. TTT2 is deep and, as a bonus, has a ton of content. Haters can continue to hate, I'll continue to learn this game and one day be on par with my 2d fighter abilities,and have fun playing both.

#41
Freyzii said on November 16, 2012 at 4:28 a.m.

I voted for SFxT, as much of mindless hate it gets it's still good and has more fans than most people think.

#42
Galletano said on November 16, 2012 at 5:53 a.m.

I won't mind if tekken or DOA wins, I voted for tekken, cause it has better net code, it's has one of the best training modes ever, it teaches you how to play the game, and fighting games are also custom friendly nowadays, tekken has more options than the others with combot and his custom moves, althoug ttt2 has an average closet for everyone players still have a lot of FREE!!! options. The game mechanism is good cause I have never played a tekken game with this type of tag system. It's still a tekken 6 with tag, but is it's really fun.

#43
Aluppoj said on November 16, 2012 at 7:35 a.m.

@35

Whichever game gives you the most "free" stuff will be the winner in your eyes.

You know so little about fighting games that it'd be pointless to rattle off a laundry list detailing your fu<king ignorance.

However, I will say that it's HILARIOUS that you say SFxT is "SF4 with tags", which couldn't illustrate your stupidity any more!

Meanwhile EVERYONE in this thread (even ppl that like it) agree that ttt2 is Tekken 6 with tags!!!

So the game you defend is guilty of it! While the game you bash is innocent! RETARD!

Watch a video compilation of Tekken 1-ttt2, you'll be astounded at how the graphics have evolved since 1995.... But that's about it dude!

Everyone loves to say SF rehashes? Lol, my finger is firmly pointed at Tekken! SF and Capcom have been innovative with every gen of SF. Invented 2in1s/combos, alpha counter, parry, ism, focus attack.

And please god stfu about DLC you penny pinching miser! If it was to be charged content regardless, then "on disk" is EXACTLY were I wanted it! I've detailed why in past posts. You should go read them now.

Maybe you'd learn somthing.

#44
danny2times said on November 16, 2012 at 8:10 a.m.

@ striderzero you stupid retard. Tekken and doa played by the so called pros makes me wanna stab my eyes out! It's nothing but durp durp mechanics uses over and over for 2 decades! Nothing new at all! Your stupid ass kappa b/s proves your a stream troll. You're a 12 year old kid fapping over video game girls!?

What's new to either of those slow as hell crappy games? Sfxtk is overwhelming to your type so you jump on the hate wagon and slurp ur lips up and down haradas little wiener for what!? He planned on selling those characters and the people who bought the se edition of ttt2 payed for them! The online is atrocious and it's had a ton of bugs and unbalanced issues like the newly discovers dr.b slide!

The vgas are for you kids to enjoy they mean nothing the fact is street fighter will always reign supreme you idiot! Look at the sales! Capcom was disappointed they only sold 3 times more copies than namco could wish for! Where's your legit argument you retarded ingrate!? Go finger your butt!

#45
Shadowninja said on November 16, 2012 at 8:16 a.m.

TTT2 for sure

#46
Galletano said on November 16, 2012 at 9:18 a.m.

I hate how this kind of threads always become a fan war, all those games got nominated for a reason. I never wanted to put messages criticizing the FGC cause I feel every VG community is the same, but this games will go on hiatus once again cause "members" of the "FGC" only want one company to make Fighting games. Maybe they hate variety, is like deep inside we all want to be f*king Hitler: "only one game should prevail".

I should stop reading "comments". I wish you all a nice hiatus, looking at the bright side ill have more time for me. Downside ill probably read your "comments" blaming "________" game for the hiatus.

#47
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 9:25 a.m.

@45 I LMAO at your entire post! xD you really are mad ;) calm your tits, bitchboy. & i see that youre an illiterate f*ck as well as a scrub. StriderZero92, as in born in 1992, retard. popular does not equate to better, d*ckmunch. yes, SFxT sold better than TTT2, for obvious reasons, but since youre a bit slow, i'll be nice & explain why. its STREET FIGHTER x TEKKEN. Tekken fans & Street Fighter fans alike, bought the game, dumbf*ck. 2nd, the LEARNING curve. Capcom cares about its MONEY. if a game is too hard to pick up, ppl(scrub b*tches like YOU xD)wont spend their hard-earned cash on it, right? Blazblue/KOF/Tekken, all harder games to play than SFxT & MvC3. yet these games "suck". WRONG, YOU just suck ass at it."its not my fault im sh*t at the game! the game is just trash!". why listen to the pro/more serious players when casuals have money too? dumbass!

StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 9:27 a.m.

oops! was talking to @46 that time!

StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 9:31 a.m.

#45 LOL i know so little about fighting games? xD LMAO youre funny =) play me in any of those games i "know nothing about" & i'll destroy your weakass. you said you got a platinum trophy right. so youre on PS3 then. lets play a few.

#50
Aikenjamel said on November 16, 2012 at 9:34 a.m.

Lmao comment #46 ..."finger ya butt"??? Really? U all types of gay xD

#51
Aluppoj said on November 16, 2012 at 9:43 a.m.

@48

Because heaven forbid that in a world with multiple fighting games there would be multiple opinions to go along with them.

Btw, I'm recommending a game I don't even play to win the award. So come off of your soapbox before you become guilty of the same thing you're complaining about.

@51

Sure, I haven't played since May. But I'm sure that amount of skill would still be enough to dispatch you. My gamer tag is in my profile.

#52
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 9:46 a.m.

@53 its SFxT. im sure you wont be too bad @ it >=) the game's braindead easy to play.

#53
Galletano said on November 16, 2012 at 9:59 a.m.

(All of this has written in a positive attitude, and is for no reason meant to offend no one)

@53, Opinions should only count on the stuff you have actually tried. Sorry if my message has perceived in a wrong way people should have as many opinions as they want, what I hate is the unnecessary fight for which game is the best, cause that opinion is relative.

Those games have fans and I respect their liking , I even applaud them for supporting fighting games. Sorry if I'm not in the stupid attitude to fight you I guess that other guy is doing a good job at it.

(All of this has written in a positive attitude, and is for no reason meant to offend no one)

#54
Aluppoj said on November 16, 2012 at 10:09 a.m.

@54

You see, that's the reason I know you're not as good as you think you are.

News flash. People said the SAME stuff about SF4. And that game has proven legs and depth.

And while I personally don't care for SFxT, anyone who has any experience in the FGC could see that SFxT has a ton of depth to offer. Even if neither of us like the game long enough to hang around and see it.

The special move cancels, counter hit creation, and charging supers alone make the mind boggle with possibilities! And I could mention at least 6 more systems to play around with!

IMO the game was too ambitious. It tried too much, too hard. Had they simply did as YOU say and make SF with Tekken characters maybe people would have actually liked it.

No.... Then ppl would have just called Capcom lazy, cut, copy and paste.

And win our matches or lose our matches will NOT change my opinion on Tekken. They are guilty of rehashing for years! But still get nothing but jocked. It's foul.

#55
Aluppoj said on November 16, 2012 at 10:13 a.m.

@55

Yeah, he and I are battling because he wants to control my opinion on Tekken:)

Kinda like Hitler.

#56
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 10:26 a.m.

#57 tbh, idgaf about your opinion on Tekken. but youre not better than me, & you sure as hell dnt know more than me in fighting games lol. now when will you be ready?

#57
danny2times said on November 16, 2012 at 10:35 a.m.

@striderzero92

You are a moron lmao! Not one reason why you think tekken is better? Learning curve? That's your argument eh? I own every game you named and then some. Been playin fighters longer than you've been alive son! Mad? Nope I love reading comments by little idiots like you. I'm up for any game and ill be on in about an hour, psn- danny2times let's see what you got chump. I read through your comments on previous posts, nuff said. Wow you are the reason puppies are killed.

Lol, better than you at what? Everything?

Be ready? Idk man. Whenever we're both on I guess. I play later at night because I'm very busy during the day.

Friend req me. We'll do a first to ten then delete.

danny2times said on November 16, 2012 at 11:10 a.m.

Hey striderretard I thought this was about how easy sfxtk is!? Where the fack did marvel come from!? I'm down for sure cant wait to see your team of zero may cry! Havin a smoke be on in 10 mins you god among insects of fighting games! Ha ha ha ha ha you're so gdlk!

#61
StriderZero92 said on November 16, 2012 at 11:18 a.m.

@61 that was the plan
@62 I wont need Zero, scrub. & i'll strap your weakass in SFxT next.

#62
Galletano said on November 16, 2012 at 11:18 a.m.

Probably that's how Hitler started, he liked SFxT too much. But a lot of people did't agree with Hitler in his preference in SFxT. So he started to kill Jews that play too much Tekken.

Why do I bother. People always want to be right and I'm not excluded. So I'll try to change stuff here, I was wrong when wanted to stop a fight with a lot of name calling. I did a mistake when I called Hitler as an example of not accepting opinions, I apologize for misinterpretations that can be made by my past present and future posts. Everyone has an opinions and all of those are completely acceptable. Sorry for getting in the way if your heated discussion. And if you can think about any other mistake I made feel free to let me know, cause I don't want to do them again.

#39

"New" content justifies that your getting a "new" experience(whether its good or bad experience, you decide) whenever your playing a recently released game you just bought/rent. I don't want a recycled experience of T6 with a tag mode when im getting Separate game. Very little innovation was added to the gameplay from T6 which was pretty disappointing since Namco made the effort to distract the masses of that with "free dlc" to build the hype. TTT2 has Quantity down no doubt about that, but quality? No. Its recycled from the last game nothing more

#66
danny2times said on November 16, 2012 at 12:26 p.m.

Man what 64 said really put things in perspective for me. I mean, why are we turning to this? Threats, hurtful words and bravado are tearing apart the community from the inside out. I don't want any part if this at all!

#67
KleenexGhost said on November 16, 2012 at 2:58 p.m.

Remember when a community could have different preferences for which games they likedid while still respecting what other members liked?
