Violence, gruesome fatalities, dead-end fight, and the most imaginative action-adventure games are preferred by gamers over any type of gaming genre. And with fighting video games, the gameplay is getting visually pleasing more than ever before. The integral feature of such kind of games as special attacks, punching, and killing proves to be a power packed imagination, and it takes the visual excellent to next level.
Shiny new armours, spinning weapons, smoking visual effects, fierce action and the fatal bloodbath are just the basics, it’s getting darker, and gamers across are world are enjoying it all!

We can not deny how fast and remorseless FPS close counter battles are, I personally believe in fighting video games they are the most intense. Only two opponents are playing at a time, and all your strength, skills and years of battling skills focus towards that single opponent.
We know and control our character with all its strength and participate in the aggressive battle and the engagement level is way to much higher compared to anything else.
