Guilty Gear vs Killer Instinct: Which Fighter is the Most Killer?

Fighting game fans have been getting their wishes granted right and left as of late. A few weeks ago it was announced that a new installment in the Guilty Gear series would be coming in the form of the bizarrely titled Guilty Gear Xrd: Sign. How do you pronounce that, exactly? Regardless, last week during E3 we saw the return of another fan favorite fighter, Killer Instinct. With both franchises set to make a triumphant return, it seems pertinent for fans to consider this: Which of the two face-punching series punches faces the hardest?

Flashiest Finishing Moves (Guilty Gear): When it comes to pizzazz, Guilty Gear beats Killer Instinct every time.

Coolest character of Guilty Gear: Sol Badguy. Cool moves, cool hair, and a cool guy don’t-give-a-crap attitude? Cool.

Coolest character of Killer Instinct: Fulgore. He’s like if a Predator and a Terminator had a baby, and that’s awesome.Fulgore

Most fun to watch (Killer Instinct): KI’s combo-heavy antics make for one hell of a crowd pleaser.Killer Instinct

Most fun to play (Guilty Gear): GG’s technical depth, huge cast, and variety of special moves keep things feeling fresh no matter how long you’ve been playing.

Most stuff for the player to do (Guilty Gear): Just look at that menu! It’s jam-packed with crap.

Best Music (Killer Instinct): Cool c-c-c-c-combo breaking tunes.


Winner: Guilty Gear

There are some strong hits on both sides, but all in all it looks like Guilty Gear’s the real winner here. Killer Instinct’s combo-heavy gameplay is fun to watch, but doesn’t translate into as much long-term fun as the flashy craziness of Guilty Gear… and there’s far more Guilty Gear games out there for fans to enjoy. Still, even though Guilty Gear won out in this fight, with new titles coming from both series it’s clear that the real winners here are the fans.
