Is it possible to make a fighting game with a great story?

And if so, how? And has one already been made?

It's all about Mortal Kombat 9 and BlazBlue :toocool:

Fate/Unlimited Code had a good story, but that's because it was basically Fate/Stay Night's story. With a fighting game attached.

The Fatal Fury and KOF games. And, before SF4, the Street Fighter main games. Also: Mortal Kombat. Maybe Guilty Gear too. Daruka Tenshi has a nice cyberpunk story to it too.

Yes, but you need to have a writer there from the get-go, and you have to make storylines work within the context of one on one and two on two fights. Most writers are avoidant of this, and most fighting games as a result have ridiculous stories attempting to explain it all. If I had to pick a game that would have a good story for a fighting game, I'd say Karateka. Same goes for Infinite Blade. They aren't necessarily street fighter, but are effectively fighting games in their own right.
Mortal Kombat 9 has the best story mode of any fighter I've played.

I liked the story with Marvel vs Capcom 3. Soul Calibur has a lore enriched story. Mortal Kombat....could do better.
Soul Caliber has a reasonably good plot. And Smash Bros Brawl deserves credit for theirs, given that the game has no dialogue.

BlazBlue's story is a bit cliche, but it's enjoyable for what it is.

persona 4 arena was a great fighting game even though it was an anime before it was a game (or maybe rpg before anime then fighting game, im not sure lol)
