The Most Hilarious Fighting Game Crossovers
Anyone who owned action figures as a kid inevitably got into a silly playground argument about who would win in a fight between the Hulk and Batman, when the obvious answer was Optimus Prime. Now you can use video games to solve such timeless debates: Guile versus Cyclops? Sure thing. Geese versus Goku? The fuck not? Just fire up Top Fighter 2000: MK VIII, a Street Fighter II mod, and conduct some entirely scientifical beatdowns.
Oh my God, yes.
So what's the story? Why are such vastly different characters in the same universe, and why are they fighting? Top Fighter 2000 would like to answer your questions with another question: Who friggin' cares? Why are you asking questions when you should be jump-kicking explosions? Here, while you're shutting the hell up, take a gander at Michael Jordan hurling exploding basketballs at Muhammad Ali, who counters with a fireball punch.
Float like a butterfly, sting like Chun-Li.
While a proper video game developer would be tied down by licensing and copyright issues, the folks behind Top Fighter 2000 had no such concerns and were free to deliver up the most ridiculous fights we didn't know we wanted to see. And that's just the tip of the crazyberg: A free game engine called M.U.G.E.N lets people make customized fighters from scratch. Users immediately created crossovers that are usually reserved for the filthiest corners of fan fiction. Have you always wanted to see Tom Hanks attain his Omega Form and beat the tar out of Michael Jackson using multicolored movie posters? First off: That's weird. You should probably get some counseling. Second: Here you go!
In the follow-up match, he nails Godzilla with a big sack full of Oscars.
