GameType: NES Fighting Games

GameType is a new feature I’ve been cooking up for a while now. Essentially I’m establishing it to look at an entire genre’s catalog of games on a variety of platformers. How many RPGs are on the Super Nintendo? What shooters are on the PS2? The list goes on. Not as history lessons per say like my retrospectives, but more as curiosity pieces.


To start I decided to looking at fighting games on the NES because the genre was basically established in 1976, which would then make this year their 40th Anniversary. Now the actual award of which game created the genre is debatable, but it was a good excuse as any to begin here on the NES. With all that said enjoy this small twelve game retrospective.
