List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Dreamcast at some point.

If you owned a Dreamcast at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few fighting games in your collection. With challenging combos and finishing moves to pull off, fighting games are some of the best multiplayer games you can get your hands on. Franchises like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat made the genre famous, but today there are a plethora of others that are just as fun. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Dreamcast fighting games of all time. While it may have been short-lived and not so popular, the Dreamcast was the first system to reliably use CD technology for games, and many of the games released on the system were actually really good.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling fighting games that were released for Dreamcast. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Vote for your favorite items on this poll, including Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, Capcom vs. SNK 2, and more. Vote for your favorite video games below, and feel free to add any that you think deserve to be on the list.
