Best Fighting Game 2013

Injustice: Gods Among Us – Best Fighting Game 2013

Platform(s): PC, PS3, Wii U, Xbox 360, PS4*, PS Vita* (*Ultimate Edition)
Publisher: Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment
Developer: NetherRealm Studios
 
NetherRealm’s highly successful Mortal Kombat reboot enjoyed this award back in 2011 for many of the same reasons Injustice: Gods Among Us earned this year’s nod: the combat is nearly flawless in its balancing, there are so many characters, special attacks, and combos to choose from, and the story mode reinvents how fighting game stories are told with its epic scale and presentation.

But Injustice: Gods Among Us has the one thing that Mortal Kombat is missing, and that’s recognition. While Scorpion and Sub-Zero may be gaming icons, they don’t transcend across various types of media the same way that Batman, Superman, and The Joker do. Through decades of comics, these characters also have a much more diverse and legendary story to be told.
