In fact, you probably owned a few of these fighting games in your SNES collection. Fighting games are fun not just because you can fight the computer, but because you can fight against other people.

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, fight gamers naturally want to know what are the best SNES fighting games of all time.
