Fighting games are where we let it all hang out. The jerk who cut you up on the way home from work. The little brat who carries a Bluetooth speaker with them on public transport. The current state of politics.

Few of us are psychotic enough to take it all out in an actual physical confrontation. But we do have a handy escape valve in the form of fighting games.

Well, that's true for some of us. Others just dig the skill inherent in mastering a good beat 'em up. The timing, the combos, the special moves. Delicious.

Mobile gamers don't need to miss out either, as there are a whole bunch of brilliant fighting games out there of all stripes and varieties.
