Default Good fighters for PS2 or PS3?

I absolutely have fallen in love with Tekken 5 for PS3. What other good fighters are there for ths PS line? Is the any really good 2d or 3d classics I may have missed on my 2 year hiatus from gaming?

I kinda stopped playing fighters around soul calibur days (the first SC), maybe someone who follows these closely the past few years could recommend one?

Yeah, Tekken 5 DR is great...it's accessable to anyone, yet a pro will still stomp a rookie without much trouble. Also has cool characters, and tons of them.

The second-biggest 3D fighter is probably Virtua Fighter 5. This game is NOT accessable to everyone, because its move inputs have to be incredibly precise. Most people find this game pretty frustrating as a result, but there are hardcore followers who proclaim it as the best thing ever. It has few characters, and they are pretty bland. It will be the prettiest 3D fighter until Tekken 6 comes out, IMO.

I tend to like 2D fighters a lot too, I'd pick up PS2's SF:Alpha Anthology for SFA3, which is one of the best 2D fighters ever, or SF collection for Super Turbo. Guilty Gear XX isn't bad either, although far from balanced.

yea, I own Tekken 5 and can vouch everything Nicodimus22 said about it. Having said that, there is also an add on coming out for it soon that will make the game fully online support

Luckily, I grabbed a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for $70 at a local EB Games almost in perfect condition only a couple months ago. Still expensive imo, but well worth it.

Marvel vs Capcom 2 is one of my all time favs. Capcom vs SNK 2 is very good also. Not as flashy as MvC2 but great 2D action especially if you like SNK characters. Don't forget to download MK2. Those along with Guilty Gear and the SF collections should satisfy your 2D needs.

For 3D, definately get Soul Calibur 2 and 3... Also, lots of fun with Mortal Comabt Deadly Alliance, Deception, and Armageddon. I actually liked the Bloody Roar series, I think part 3 is the best. You can probably find those for dirt cheap on ebay. Then of course there's VF5 which is great but not nearly as fun as Tekken 5, which may have my vote right now for best fighting game.

Worst fighting game ever = Shaq-Fu
