    Happy New Year to all....

    I have a PS2 and I like Tekken Tag. My family played for hours last night. MY brother has a PS1 and wants a good fighting game. What do you recommend as best fighting game for the PS1? What others do you like?

    Thanks

    If you (and your brother?) like TTT for PS2, then Tekken 3 would be an excellent choice for PS1 - it was very well done.

    Tekken 2 was also very good. Stay away from Tekken 1 though.

    You might want to try Soul Blade as well. It's the predecessor of Soul Calibur on the Dreamcast, so it's also made by Namco, and plays a *little* like Tekken with swords. Cool game, and probably one of the PSone's better 3D fighters.

    Other decent ones are:

    Tekken 3 (Namco)

    Tobal No. 1 (Dream Factory/Square)

    Dead or Alive (Tecmo)

    Ehrgeiz (Dream Factory/Square)

    What is the main difference between Tekken 2 and Tekken 3?

    Graphics and some characters.

    IMHO, Tekken 2 was the best of the first 3. It had the most hidden characters and played just as well as 3. It also was tough to get all the hidden characters since you had to do stuff like lose 90% of your health on the second round of the game and then come back and win.

    Street Fighter Collection 1 and 2 are pretty good, but I think 2 is just several versions of the same game.

    If your brother has modded (or is willing to mod) his Playstation, get Tobal 2 (only released in Japan). It's (IMO) the best fighting game ever released, and easily the best fighting game on the Playstation.

    Tobal 2 is a mighty game 10x better than Tobal 1

    Anyone ever finish the quest mode?

    Yeah, I still have a copy of Tobal 2. Fighting was awesome, but the quest was a bitch since you have to understand Japanese.
