'''Fighting Game'' refers to a style of combat game made up of a series of duels (or battles between four characters) typically fought using martial arts. They are typically styled after martial arts tournaments, with a number of selectable characters competing in one on one, or tag team style fights. The tournament can either be a ''regular'' tournament with just a title or mundane prize up for grabs, or [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the fate of the world]] can be [[SeriousBusiness hanging in the balance]]. A Fighting Game based on an {{anime}} will often take place during a TournamentArc.

In game parlance, the term ''fighting game'' is '''not''' used as a catch-all phrase to refer to any game which involves combat; it specifically refers to a style of combat-game which consists of a series of duels (or, occasionally, battles between four characters) typically fought using martial arts. Fighting games are typically styled after martial arts tournaments, with a number of selectable characters competing in one on one, or tag team style fights. The tournament can either be a ''regular'' tournament with just a title or mundane prize up for grabs, or [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the fate of the world]] can be [[SeriousBusiness hanging in the balance]]. A Fighting Game based on an {{anime}} will often take place during a TournamentArc. The two most common play modes in a fighting game are story mode, where you play as one character trying to win the tournament and versus, where two or more players fight each other. Many recent games released on consoles have longer, more involved storylines and as such will have both the regular Story Mode and an Arcade Mode, which takes out all the story-related elements and makes the opponent lineup more random. In story mode you generally get to fight special [[ClimaxBoss boss]] characters not available for player selection after you beat the rest of the characters. These characters are either the previous tournament champions or the BigBad and his [[TheDragon Dragon]]. Rarer but still somewhat prevalent, you may instead end the mode fighting against another player character that is specifically your character's rival. Some games have both. But most people don't play Fighting Games for their single-player modes, at least today; rather, the multiplayer is the meat and potatoes of most any modern Fighting Game. If you go to a reputable arcade with Fighting Games, you'll often see many people playing these games. Depending on your skill level, playing against a random opponent can range from very easy to NintendoHard; the latter especially if you're a new player. This is one of the reasons arcades rely on fighters for profit: instead of just playing the same stages or CPU-controlled opponents over and over, a player can come across opponents of all skill levels and styles, and it's this aspect that makes fighting games very popular for multiplayer and has given birth to the UsefulNotes/FightingGameCommunity. This is also one of the reasons that home versions come out far more often [[UsefulNotes/PCVsConsole on consoles]]; most PC monitors just aren't big enough for more than one person.
