    Fighter's Destiny from the N64. It's unique selling point of a points based structure to win is what I loved about it. But being a fighting game on N64 meant it was doomed to fail at retail…

    The Art of Fighting. That game controlled like velvet.

    Since nobody else mentioned them, Last Bronx and the not-quite-as obscure Fighting Vipers could seriously benefit from HD re-releases/remakes if Sega won't just make a Fighters MegaMix 2. Soul Calibur 4 lifted one of Fighting Vipers' major gimmicks (the armor system),but it still has something that Soul Calibur does not: a guy named B.M. and a Serpentor look-alike.

    I loved War of the Monsters! I thought nobody else played that game, but it was apparently pretty popular. Also, I'm pretty sure Hudson was working on a new Bloody Roar but it was cancelled by Konami which is why I'll hate them forever.

    You have the love of the same two games I do :D I spent many a fun hour on both War of the monsters and Bloody Roar! Would be an easy no brainer to buy either one again if they we're released on current gen stuff!

    I might want to see a re-do of Brutal:Paws of Fury just to see if they could at least bring it up to the level of Bloody Roar. I take it that no one is too shocked that ClayFighters didn't make the list.

    Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram! You wouldn't even need the ridiculously expensive twin-stick attachment!
  • FauxFurry - August 8, 2012 9:13 p.m.

    Virtual On is actually on XBLA for 1200 MSP right now. No Twin-Stick required,either.

    I have that on my xbox.
  • einhazard - August 8, 2012 8:07 p.m.

    Primal Rage, Bushido Blade, Samurai Showdown, Weaponlord, Clayfighter... these are all missing and shouldn't be. Oh, also, you missed one that belongs on here more than pretty much anything else: KILLER. INSTINCT. Seriously, people still say 'c-c-c-c-combo breaker!' It's an institution.
  • einhazard - August 8, 2012 8:11 p.m.

    (and before you say it, most of these weren't obscure at the time, but they are now!)
  • GR_LucasSullivan - August 8, 2012 8:17 p.m.

    If you asked a random gamer (who wasn't a fighter fan) if they know what Killer Instinct is, they'd probably say "Yes," which doesn't fit the obscure bill. The real question is: which was better, Killer Instinct or KI2?
  • umesh-mudunkothge - August 8, 2012 7:58 p.m.

    Ehrgeiz, Battle Arena Toshinden 3 and Soul Blade!!! This was my childhood trio.
  • einhazard - August 8, 2012 8:08 p.m.

    Soul Blade isn't obscure, though, and they're still kinda making it in the form of Calibur. It's not the same, but it's the same franchise. Also, they made a new Ehrgeiz. It's called Dissidia (kidding! kidding!)
  • ninjaemperor - August 8, 2012 7:34 p.m.

    Weaponlord. That is all.
  • einhazard - August 8, 2012 8:04 p.m.

    Very yes
  • Fhiend - August 8, 2012 7:01 p.m.

    Samurai Showdown series.
  • LordZarlon - August 8, 2012 7:01 p.m.

    I appreciate you mentioning Bloody Roar but this game is a classic example of what happens when there are many more superior games in a genre at one time. When the first Bloody Roar came out it was a neat concept but there were simply a lot better games available. None of the sequels really improved on the original design. I'm afraid an HD remake would just expose the games flaws all the more.

    Bio-Freaks by midway would be a great hd remake,but Killer Instinct for sure.combo breakers rock!
