Guilty Gear XX

videogame genres; fighting games

fighting game is a type of video game where the player controls an on-screen character and engages in close combat with an opponent. These characters tend to be of equal power and fight matches consisting of several rounds, which take place in an arena. Players must master techniques such as blocking, counter-attacking, and chaining together sequences of attacks known as “combos”. Since the early 1990s, most fighting games allow the player to execute special attacks by performing specific button combinations. The genre is related to but distinct from beat ‘em ups, which involve large numbers of antagonists.


Let’s take a look at character select screen design in fighting games.

Mortal Kombat X? Fucking boring, dull garbage. Who thought this was a good idea? It looks like something made for Mugen. 

Fatal Fury 3? Fucking awesome. So much personality, love it.

Guilty Gear? Fucking hi-tech, it’s amazing, it has such pop and flashiness, it really stands out and the character illustrations are great.
