Best Fighting Game

Killer Instinct
KI’s reboot was one of E3’s biggest highlights, and it also came under a lot of scrutiny due a new developer handling it instead of Rare. The Xbox One’s launch showcased the new free-to-play fighter and its business model allowed anyone to try it out without taking a financial risk. Players were rewarded with the smoothest-playing new fighter in quite some time, and unlike a lot of fighters, it plays just about as smoothly online as it does offline. Ki’s also got one of the best training modes out there to ensure that you know your way around the game before going online.
