A fighting game is a video game genre based around close combat between a few characters in a stage in which the boundaries are fixed. Also categorized as Street Fighter II clone, since the latter helped define this genre. The characters fight each other until they defeat their opponents or the time expires. The matches typically comprise several rounds in an arena, with each character having different abilities, but each is relatively viable to choose. Players must master techniques such as blocking, counter-attacking, and chaining attacks together into “combos”. Starting in the early 1990s, most fighting games allowed the player to execute special attacks by performing specific input combinations. The fighting game genre is related to but distinct from beat ’em-ups, which involve large numbers of enemies against the human player.
