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

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.
