2010 GR Awards: Best Fighting Game

Setting aside the notion that Super Street Fighter IV was supposed to be Street Fighter IV in the first place, the entire Street Fighter IV series has had the most significant impact on the fighting genre. Nods can go to EA MMA for introducing a rival to THQ's UFC franchise as well as BlazBlue for reinventing the Guilty Gear-esque fighting system. But Super Street Fighter IV proves that you can teach an old headbanded shotokan fighter new tricks. Even though the precision and music for Street Fighter III is better, this reboot of the classic Street Fighter characters in a 3D mold was what the series needed to find the warrior within again. (And for laying the groundwork for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, it gets extra points.)

Runners-Up: BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, EA MMA, UFC Undisputed 2010, WWE Smackdown! vs. RAW 2011
