In the blue corner we have The Greatest of All Time. In the red corn... screw it. We just can't bang the mega clichéd phrasing out. What we can do is tell you we'd back Chun Li's thighs of granite in any semi fair fight. That, and we can also inform you that you should vote for The Fighting Game of the Year at this month's Golden Joystick Awards.
In the brand new category, some of the best beat 'em ups from the last year are going toe-to-toe. Alright, usually fist to groin. The games up for the award are...
- BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger
- Dragon Ball: Raging Blast
- Fight Night Round 4
- Soulcalibur: Broken Destiny
- Super Street Fighter IV
- Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars
- Tekken 6
- UFC 2009 Undisputed
- WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2010
The Golden Joystick Awards are voted for by the only people that really matter: Mole People.
Eh, we mean you, the gamers. This year's awards are taking place in London on 29th of October. So get your voting skates on, and go here (opens in new tab) to place your vote for the best fighting game, y'all.
Here's a video to wet your fighty appetite...
So, what'll it be, then? Do you think Smackdown's brand of violent man-on-man hugging deserves the gaming gong?
Perhaps you think Super Street Fighter IV is deserving for showcasing E. Honda's giant ass so gloriously.
Or maybe you want to back Fight Night Round 4 and Ricky Hatton's poor, mashed-up mug.
Anyhoo, head to the voting page we directed you towards earlier to get your vote one. Are you ready? Are you ready? Let's get it on! Or maybe we could just have a cuddle instead.
