Mortal Kombat

A game series that needs no introduction, the Mortal Kombat saga has set its name in stone in the fighting game universe. First launched in 1992 by Ed Boon and John Tobias, Mortal Kombat was the first game to revolutionize the fighting genre by introducing blood, gore, and savagery in their fights. A controversial title at the beginning of its run, Mortal Kombat has grown to become a franchise comprising video games, movies, series, comics, and much more. Its standing in the professional gaming world is undisputed, as almost every major fighting tournament has a Mortal Kombat section.

Street Fighter

Another series that needs no presentation, it's safe to say that the Street Fighter saga has modeled what modern fighting games are. The first game came in 1987 to quite a good reception from the gaming community at the time, yet it was Street Fighter II: The World Warrior in 1991 that forever changed gaming. The series popularity at the time was so high, that several movie adaptations and even anime series were created. The series popularity remains in present times, as few to no tournaments are held without a section for Street Fighter players.
