Mortal Kombat 9 really raised the bar. Not everyone will love the gameplay, but there's no disputing they stepped it up in regards to single player.

Super Smash Bros., which was, at the time, probably the most original fighting game ever made.

Agreed. Least for the first game. Can't say the same for Melee or Brawl.

Super Smash Bros. is not a fighting game, it's a kiddy brawler.

Mortal Kombat, I think it broke the barrier of fighting games. Next would have to be Street Fighter
 
But super smash brothers is awesome too xD

I always thought DOA fighting games were the best because they just seemed so much more fluent then all the others.

I'm not sure how DOA fighting games hurt the genre?? but ok

I'm also a big fan of the Bushido Blade series (probably most realistic fighting game since one slice of a katana in the face would probably end it).I also really liked the Wu Tang: Shaolin Style fighting game back in the day due to it's variety of characters and special moves.

I was never a big fan of playing the arcade fighting games but that's just cause I never cared for the game play. Probably why I was drawn to other types of fighters that other fans of the genre would be like "what" you like that game? (Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus)

Maybe that it explains why it made grown men feel like kids again. Games are made to have fun. 
 
But, I see what you did there. LOL.

I like Super Street Fighter IV quite a bit at the moment, well, since it's release. Mortal Kombat is a strong second though. I tried MVC 3, but that wasn't my cup of tea, but my friends love it.

Mortal Kombat 9 for sure. It has a certain flow that I just love.

Def Jam Vendetta: Fight For NY is another great fighting game.

My third favorite would have to be Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (Frank West FTW!)
