Dead or Alive 4 VS. Virtua Fighter 5: Fight!
Fighting games used to be king. Once upon a time, back in the 90s, arcades (remember those?) were full of fighting games of all kinds. You could fight with and against just about anything you pleased: dinosaurs, robots, time travelers, ninjas, werewolves, you name it. With so many games from which to choose, rivalries were formed. After the Street Fighter VS. Mortal Kombat era rose the Virtua Fighter VS. Tekken era. When the Dead or Alive series arrived, Virtua Fighter's influence was unmistakable (the original DOA ran on the VF2 arcade board after all). The game's had identical control schemes (as long as you disregard VF3's unfortunate dodge button), similar combos and even shared many fighting styles. So, which one is better?

Gameplay wise I've always been a bigger fan of VF.

Dead or Alive 4 has characters than are 100 times more memorable than Tekken or Virtua Fighter combined. I give that alot more points than (in some peoples opinion) better gameplay (for VF over DOA4). Personally I think the gameplay mechanics for both are about equal, and since VF and Tekken have no memorable characters, I'd give the nod to Dead or Alive 4. And I didn't even count that Dead or Alive 4 is sexy and Tekken/VF aren't. Didn't take that into account at all. Nope. No sir. Not at all

Who cares when Tekken is going to kill them both anyway, no matter WHAT they look like...

No memorable characters? I'm sure you remembe rthe first time you saw Marshall Law run up a guy's chest, do a backflip and land on him, or when King completes his slam combo. Heihachi, Lei? Come on dude...
