    Last video game I played was from ECW Anarchy Rulz and it was ok. I don't play that many games if they had a death match wrestling video game I would be playing every day.

    I think the best video game would be SmackDown vs. RAW 2006.

    It had a lot of realism, and the graphics were miles better than anything else produced during or before that period. But it didn't sacrifice the arcade style.

    Most recent 2K games have sacrificed the ability to "pick up and play" in favor of simulation. It makes the game more technical, but kinds ruins the fun sprees of mayhem that were so prevalent in the earlier games.

    Also, my first wrestling video game was probably WWF War Zone. At the time, I thought it was cool as fuck but seeing reviews and gameplays makes the game seem like a clunky mess. I also loved WCW Revenge. The roster was packed, the game was technical but fun, the battle royal was the greatest mode ever.

    So yeah, too many to choose. lol.

    I am not a huge gamer but when I do play I like realism. I like for the game to feel like I was one of the characters. I grew up with Atari and Commodore 64 so I love the old school games like fire pro wrestling and anything around 2001 invasion angle.

    I like realism too, but keeping it simple is good. When you have to play for a couple of hours before getting the slightest hang of what you're doing, then it's harder to try and pick up and play again.

    Smackdown Shut Your Mouth and HCTP are always the go to, imo. Had the RAW games on the original Xbox but they weren’t the same.

    WrestleMania 21 was pretty good too, even though that’s the game that broke my Xbox.

    SVR08 was the last great one I’d say, with WWE’13 being pretty close to good.

    For years I would have said SVR06 was the best but I really would have to say WrestleMania 2000 for the N64 was the most fun and entertaining. It had a stacked roster and a really fun soundtrack.

    Check that, I'd prob have to say WCW/nWo Revenge. I had soooooo many good memories playing that game and I'm not even really a WCW fan over WWF. It just can't be beat in my mind.

    I haven't the ability to play WWE games a lot but I am loving Supercard which is... just odd.

    New WWE games are the equivalent of buying a racing game where you have to do the pit stops yourself.

    Nigga I want something to calm my 3 year old nephew down but instead he gotta learn wtf a rest hold is. smh

    '07 SmackDown vs RAW was fun online for me when people weren't glitching.

    Jesus SvR 07 was the first online WWE game, I can only imagine how primitive that was.

    Glitches fucked up the fun tbh. Was undefeated in first blood matches for some reason. Beat like half of the top ten.

    Impact's not a bad game. Actually it's pretty good as (what should have been) a franchise starter. Lot's to improve on but lots of fun anyway.

    It's hard to pick a favourite, there's too many and it depends entirely on my mood but the one's I keep going back to are below. I actually bought an N64 based on them having a demo pod with WCW vs NWO Revenge playing on it back in the day. IMO that era WCW had such a stacked roster full of characters and, importantly, different styles and that game just blew me away. I also think there's still room in modern videogames for the simple ladder to the title style progression. I played Wrestlefest in the arcade (and now on MAME) - again the characters are what make it. No Mercy is generally thought of as the best wrestling videogame ever and it pretty much perfects the AKI engine.

    There are others of course. I've still got my PS3 hooked up just for Fire Pro Returns and I've got Smackdown 2 on my emulation machine but these are definitely my favourites:

    WCW vs NWO Revenge


    Wrestlefest


    No Mercy
