10 Reasons Dissidia 012 is the Greatest Fighting Game Ever (That You Have Probably Never Played)!

If you haven’t already, please take a moment to check out the first post in this series:¬†Great Games: Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy!

No doubt you have seen, on this very blog, several posts espousing the glory¬†that is Dissidia 012 [duodecim] Final Fantasy. What I perhaps have not conveyed properly is the true scope of awesomeness that is this game, and why, in my mind, it is the greatest fighting game ever made. “Wait a minute, SnapperTrx, how in the world can you say that? You sound like a loon!” you may say, but allow me to elaborate!

First of all understand that I lived through, and played through, the golden age of arcade fighters. I remember playing the original Street Fighter, the one with only two massive buttons. I remember the rise of Street Fighter II, the SNK clone King of Fighters, the incredible Samurai Shodown and the vastly superior Samurai Shodown 2. I remember the clunkers who’s horrible gameplay and graphics are stuck in my mind as nightmares, yet they were so awful I cannot remember their names (“Fighters History”, “Time Killers”, I think…). I recall the rise of one Mortal Kombat and the much touted Killer Instinct. I paid my dues at the Marvel vs. Capcom machine, and paid even more at the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 machine! I have owned many console fighters and for many, many years, would NEVER touch a fighting game on a console that did not have a fighter stick attached to it. My credentials are good.
