Poll: Which 6 games do you most want to see on the official EVO 2014 line up?

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • December 16, 2013 at 4:59 p.m. PST

While it was confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter 4 will be on the official EVO 2014 line up if Capcom releases it in early June, which they have planned, we won't be receiving information on the remaining games until January of next year. So while we wait, one of our readers gave us the idea to run a poll asking which games you all want to see at EVO next year. Thanks, DevilMaySpy!

Below, we have listed all of the main fighting game titles currently featured in tournament play, and we are giving you the option to select 6 different games.

If there is a title we missed, or you'd just like to see something else played that wasn't listed, hit the "Other" option, and let us know which game you chose in the comments section.

Hit the jump, cast your votes, and let your voice be heard!

Which 6 games would you most like to see played at EVO 2014?

Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter X Tekken, King of Fighters 13, Super Smash Bros. Melee and Persona 4: Arena.

Also @1, people who think Wii U Smash will be out Q1/Q2 2014 are deluding themselves. Don't set yourself up for disappointment. :(

Not sure I can take one more year of AE...

SirRetro08 said on December 16, 2013 at 5:07 p.m.

Why not KOF? That game is really fun and brings up major hype. Did you not see the top 8's for the past 2 EVO's?

Dodoria said on December 16, 2013 at 5:17 p.m.

while voting, i realized that 3D FG have been kind of... dead at their communities, TTT2 this year has almost been unheard off unless it's WNF or that Philly major.
VF5 had it's run, but after the major that happened at WNF when Fuudo came, the community for the game suddenly disappeared.
SC5 same, 8WR still plays it? i have no idea.
DOA5 .. well.. i got nothing here lol, game got featured a lil' bit at WNF then gone.
Injustice.. i'm not a fan of the game artistically, but my personal opinion it not the point, the community towards the game has been downhill seems to me.
KI is good to go, but next year i'm not so sure about it.

#13
Ninjagoon said on December 16, 2013 at 5:17 p.m.

Ultra Street Fighter 4, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Killer Instinct , King of Fighters 13, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Blazblue: Chrono Phantasma. I think thats a good balance.

#14
Enter4none said on December 16, 2013 at 5:18 p.m.

LOL! funny but it's TRUE! ~ anyway, I love King of Fighters from the very first one (KOF94), still play it and watch all the tourney streams that will have it... will keep it as a collectible after the X360 finally croaks, same goes for P4A (not sure if I'll buy the Ultimax version, we'll see).

Hopefully EVO14 will have it once again.

Dodoria said on December 16, 2013 at 5:23 p.m.

I think ttt2 shouldn't be featured at this year's evo, I was there and the tournament was so meh, no one genuinely cared about it, and the game has been downhill since then. I love the game tho.
My picks were USF4, UMvsc3, GGXXAC, BBCP, SMBM, KOF13

#22
RagingDemon said on December 16, 2013 at 5:28 p.m.

I disagree with USF4 personally. There's only going to be a month to pick up and learn the game. This is especially the case if the game is going to be released mid or late June (correct me if I'm wrong because I don't recall if I saw the actual release date). Besides, the retail and PC versions are going to be released in August, and people who use the latter aren't going to have a lot of resources to train up for the new version. I think EVO should just run AE 2012 one more time.

#23
Gerk said on December 16, 2013 at 5:28 p.m.

Voted USF4, KI, Skullgirls, GGXX, KoF '13, and SC5.

Real fightan.

VF5FS deserves its day in the sun. Best 3D fighter of this generation.

#27
Wardog said on December 16, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

Hey, take the Capcom games off the list cause those games already got that stamp already. Let's see other people option. Thanks

My thoughts about this poll is...

They should put in all games for more variety (especially the new games)... this shouldn't be Cap EVO Com. Capcom games shouldn't be on the list cause those games already got the "in for sure" stamp... other games need to get some shine. Just my two cents

#28
massi4h said on December 16, 2013 at 5:30 p.m.

Normally I'd put TTT2 on my list straight away cause I think it deserves a spot at the world's biggest fighting game comp. But after seeing almost no interest for it in the last few years, I don't think it should come back. The DOA5 series actually has players coming out to majors for it, even when it didn't get picked for Evo.

#29
ToastyDMY said on December 16, 2013 at 5:31 p.m.

Why are people voting for a game thats coming out 2 MONTHS, an estimated 60 days, 1,440 hours before EVO happens is beyond me.
Lets go Marvel/Melee

#30
Gerk said on December 16, 2013 at 5:31 p.m.

Best 3D fighter...As much as it pains me to state, that isn't saying a whole lot at all.

#31
AugustAPC said on December 16, 2013 at 5:31 p.m.

- Ultra Street Fighter IV
- Marvel vs Capcom 3
- Injustice
- Killer Instinct
- Tekken Tag 2
- BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma

King of Fighters XIII was hard to leave out, but it's had a reasonable run at Evo. I honestly wish I could watch all these games, though.

#32
EX35 said on December 16, 2013 at 5:32 p.m.

Hmmmm...the current leaders I predicted, but I'm surprised SFxT is up there. Did people stop hating on the game? I never played the game before, so I can't form an opinion on it. Is the game being more accepted into the community? I'm genuinely curious about this. Is the game worth playing?

#33
massi4h said on December 16, 2013 at 5:32 p.m.

I picked UMVC3, KOF13, SSBM, DOA5U, BBCP and P4A (SF4 will win regardless)

P4A

#36
massi4h said on December 16, 2013 at 5:33 p.m.

Also I think SFxT still deserves a spot, I love playing that game, I just hate watching it.

#37
vladgd said on December 16, 2013 at 5:33 p.m.

ultra, umvc3, kof13, ttt2, sc5, and "other"

Other because why the heck is hdremix on there over super turbo?

Tournament of Legends was hype man, make it happen again!

Do people really need to vote for SF4 and Marvel 3?

#39
Papinguim said on December 16, 2013 at 5:34 p.m.

I said USF4, SFxT, Melee, KI, KOF, and Persona. Persona was pretty great last year even though I'm terrible at it.

NoizyChild said on December 16, 2013 at 5:36 p.m.
(This comment was hidden because it was down voted. You can view it by clicking here.)

Do you really need to include Marvel and SF in the voting process? We all know they'll be at EVO no matter what.

Now let's look at our choices:

AE will be obsolete at EVO, so no sense in even having that on the list.

Injustice will most likely make a return.

SFxT MIGHT, but unlikely. Too many people hating on it, not to mention a lack of character variety.

KI is a definite.

KOF is damn near dead.

HDR is a no go. People would rather just play ST instead, and that'll be a side tourney.

Not enough people give a damn about GG, unless Xrd is out by then, in which case it'll definitely make the lineup.

TTT2 is dead. Same for DoA and SC5.

Nobody plays VF. Nobody plays BB.

Skullgirls is going to be yet another side tournament.

P4A is pretty much on life support.

Melee has a better chance than Brawl, but if Smash Wii U is out by then, it has a chance as well.

MK9 has vanished from the planet. No reason to even include it on the list.

Every other random game that people might list is guaranteed side tourney material, IF enough people even bother to show up for it.

So, here's your most likely lineup for EVO 2014:

Definites:

USF4
Marvel
Injustice
Killer Instinct

Maybes:

Xrd
SFxT

Unlikely:

Everything else.

Good night, folks!

Also why is Staring contest not there? GF would be Floe vs Big E.

#50
Innovation said on December 16, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

Injustice isn't a definite anymore, it's interested has waned, so unless they pay EVO off again they are certainly not a definite. Smash/Melee is not unlikely considering how big it is, in fact it is very likely.

#51
j8slim said on December 16, 2013 at 5:53 p.m.

So based on this poll, people would rather see Bushido Blade 2, Kabuki Klash, or Bloody Roar: Primal Fury than MK9. Sounds about right.

I actually forgot to add Smash to the Maybe list. Thanks for catching that.

But Injustice will definitely be there. The NRS community won't let EVO happen without them having some representation. Interest may have waned, but they still have a strong enough community to actually have a main game spot at EVO.

I still really like watching MK9 (although there's really not any competitive fighters I don't like watching), but I do think that if MK9 wasn't so imbalanced, it'd be a lot more fun to watch.

#66
Lockm said on December 16, 2013 at 6:25 p.m.

USFIV
UMVC3
KOFXIII
KI
Melee
These are all locks i think...maybe not kof though but damn that game is fun.
Last one is a 3d fighter, have to go for doa5u, it also will get an arcade release in japan and i belive the players do show at tournies more so than other 3d fighters. Lastly the game is f2p at psn and is played alot. Lots of people will watch it. That aside the other 3d fighters had their chance and this is definately a great game.

Wish there were 8 games though. That would have been perfect. Bb and or gg also.

But setting oneself up for massive disappointment is like, Internet 101 man!

In all seriousness I seriously doubt it anyway, Sakurai has already said the spring release was a mistake so likely a fall release (as expected), and I prefer it that way since I don't want them rushing to fart out a game just to try to "save" the Wii U.

Make sure the game is solid.

As for my vote on the poll... SFxT and KOF are no brainers for me... rest is a secret :3

USF4 and KOF XIII for being international games that I love playing competitively and watching.
Smash for proving itself last year in both views and numbers.
KI for it being fun to watch and play. Plus it's always good for an American tournament to have an American Fighting Game :) especially with there being 4 on the market now.
Marvel for hype and rivalries.
Tekken because 3D needs love.

Jesus Christ how can people be denying KOF's relevance?

SF4 Marvel and KOF were top 3 games at EVO the past couple years. Melee beat is last year though but do you think that one year is just gonna out perform it till the end of time?
