The Worst Fighting Games in the History of Video Game Consoles

In the world of gaming, every genre has its stinkers. It’s unfortunate, but of course not every game can be good. There’s nothing worse than being excited about a new game, laying down the money at the store while the clerk smiles at you knowing you’re a fool. You get home and pop in the game only to get kicked in the teeth with unresponsive controls, rough graphics and sound that always seems out of place if it even works. We wanted to look at the worst fighting games ever to grace our consoles and drive us crazy. So without further adieu, here’s Go Fanboy’s Worst Fighting Games of All Time.

Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi (PSone)
As a geek and fanboy I remember being so excited about this game when I got my original Playstation and saw it on the back of the box. I popped in the PS Underground demo disc and was immediately shocked. Being the fool I was, I still bought it. Anyone who made the mistake I did; knows that this game made no sense. Handicapped Jedi Knights and droids fight new characters with barely responsive controls. I still blame this game for Episode I. No, no. That movie sucked all on its own.

Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi SUCKED
Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls (SNES, Genesis, Jaguar)
What do you get when you but the duo from Double Dragon into a fighter? If it’s the series creator and the game is on the Neo Geo, you get a solid fighter. If however, you license the name to a crap company and they just make a horribly bad Street Fighter clone that has nothing to do with the series, you get a garbage fighter considered by many to be the embarrassment of the Double Dragon series.
Double Dragon V: The Shadow Falls SUCKED
Street Fighter: The Movie (The Game) (PSone, Saturn)
It’s the game based on the movie based on the game. What could go wrong? Everything if it’s this pile of Street Fighter. Considered by many to be the low-point of the Street Fighter series, the game used Mortal Kombat-esque digital imagery of the movie’s stars. The worst part of the game was the horribly non-SF style gameplay. The second worst part of the game was the super lame Blanka who looked sickly at best. The only good thing about this game can be seen in the image below on the right.
Street Fighter: The Movie Sucked!
Kasumi Ninja (Jaguar)
Like a lot of the games that were released exclusively on the Atarai Jaguar, Kasumi was a rushed title attempting to copy more popular games that were out on the market. In this case, the goal was to deliver Mortal Kombat on the Atari Jaguar. The only thing this game delivered was an extreme amount of virtual blood and laughable controls. Anyone who was unlucky enough to pick this one up will tell you the controls were barely responsive at best. Tack that on to the extremely limited moves and Kasumi Ninja was a loser right out of the gate.
Kasumi Ninja on the Jaguar Sucked!
Shaq Fu (SNES, Genesis, Amiga)
This game was a big “Shaq Fu” (minus the Shaq) to the public. Yes that comes out to be just “FU”. If you were a child or teenager in the 90s, you were bombarded with Shaq media. Before was a 300 lb joke in the NBA, he was a backboard breaking force in Orlando. For some reason this entitled him to make horrible rap music. On top of bad rhymes, Shaq invaded other media like our Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. I’ll just tell you the premise and you’ll figure out why this sucked. Shaq stumbles into a dojo in Japan while visiting for a basketball tournament. The fun writes itself from there.
Shaq Fu Sucked!
Honorable Mention:

Def Jam Icon (Xbox 360, PS3)
Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus (Xbox)
Ultra Vortek (Atari Jaguar)
Beast Wars: Transmetals (N64, PSone)
Mortal Kombat Gold (Dreamcast Launch Edition)

Dishonorable Mentions for the worst fighting games

I actually liked that game. I'd sub in Zero Divide or something else for Def Jam.

Wasn't that on PC. Wait. Did that ever release? I remember the trailer on GT.

Also, I forgot how hot Kylie Minogue was back then.
