05. Virtua Fighter 5, because it features the most technically perfect system of any title in its genre yet created, one which newbies can't just button-mash their way through.
wahow let's not get carried away. Button mashing is hardly the biggest threat in a tournament scenario, stuff like Lei Fei's frame data is downright unnerving at times though (not that eileen isn't monstrous in her own right) The juggling isn't anywhere near as lame as Tekken's though (save VF4) thank god.
Framecounters be damned. VF5 (and all VFs save perhaps 3) is the most technically accurate fighter around. I've never seen a good VF player clowned by some newbie who button mashes, unlike Tekken or Soul Calibur where said event is de rigeur
agreed with this one (i can't believe i forgot VF on my "list")
probably the only 3D fighter to get me interested, as I prefer 2D (which is generally "anti-button-mashy")
a game this precise is a testament to well made fighting games, not deluded in just appeasing the mass crowd (with cool character and big breasted girls - looks in SC's direction)
