More specifically Tekken 5: DR is One of THE greatest fighting games ever! Not as technical and complex as Virtua Fighter so a broader audience can pick it up easily, however the difference between 'noob' and 'pro' players are crystal clear. Also a well balanced roster of characters even though there are tiers theoretically any character can beat any other character. The gameplay is awesome and the animation feels alot more fluid than alot of other fighting games. Character designs are wicked and the english voice actors don't sound too bad at all. The fighting system is integrated wonderfully with all the technical sides of a fighting game, (whiff punishing, spacing, etc.) Also the fact that it reaches such a broad audience means you get to play lots of noobies at the arcades :D
Tekken Player: "Did you see that?! I just did a 8 hit air combo!"
Observer: "That's not realistic..."
Tekken Player: "STFU!"
Short for Ranking Battle.
Also, possibly Random Battle.
It's a term widely used among 2d fighting game enthusiasts, as a word used for local gatherings of competitive playing.
Such "ranbats" are often arranged online, from different popular communities such as Shoryuken.com or tekkenzaibatsu.com.
A handful of players gather, and usually play one another in an informal tournament, usually for fun and training.
According to their performance, there is an informal "ranking" element behind the participants, and usually the top few names enjoy web notoriety, and perhaps even seeding privileges a larger tournament down the road.
The more popular ranbats feature
Street Fighter: Third Strike
Capcom Vs SNK 2
Tekken 5: Dark Ressurection
with an attendance ranging anywhere from 20~50 players/spectators.
"You going to that upcoming ranbat?"
"Ranbat 5.1 was effin sweet."
GREATEST FIGHTING GAME EVER
unmatched depth in gameplay. Probably take 10 years to master all the layers of depth within just tekken 3. Button mashing aint gonna get you far on this one. The fighting system isnt based on over the top infinities, shooting fireballs, or over powered moves. Yet it is still so fun.
i like tekken tag more than tekken 4.
Hopefully tekken 5 will rock.
A 3-D fighting game developed by NAMCO, the people who brought you Pac Man and Soul Calibur. The controls are right kick, left kick, right punch, and left punch (press nothing to block;it's weird but makes some people's lives easier). It is one of the top fighting games (it's been repeated hundreds of times, but no one really pays attention) out there, but the people who say Tekken's gay are just jealous lil otaku since their ecchi game Dead or Alive is in the bottom pit with other crappy fighting games or the fact the person sucked at playing it.more...
Over the years, Tekken developed from just another 3-D game into a fun, original fighting game. If a fighting piece of wood or a usable character that shoots lasers isn't original, then what is?
Don't worry, the plot of Tekken isn't really that complicated. It's just a big tournament called King of the Iron Fist made by the Mishimas, that brings the top fighters together to earn the title of the best fighter or win the Tekken Zaibatsu.
There's a varitey of characters to choose from, which makes this game fun and entertaining. The Tekken
Used to define a button masher in Tekken. They press all four buttons at the same time which usually leads to their character charging up and getting pwned.
Jon: Wow look at the button masher on Tekken 4....
Dom: Yeah hes one hell of a quadrapod.
A nicely designed versus game, until some douche picked up the art of smashing his opponent into mid air, and keeping him there for the rest of the round, thus, loosing it's realistic feel
Player 1: I'll kick your ass in Tekken cuz I know all the juggling moves and you don't.
Player 2: Your a douche
When one is losing or being beating on a gaming console and cant keep their cool, even though its just a game.
#Guy 1# - Man I'm giving you a hiding on Tekken 5, I keep getting perfects!
#Guy 2# - Yeah well its cause you keep cheating and not letting me get up!
#Guy 1# - But that's the whole point of winning the game, you gotta try harder
#Guy 2# - Whatever! *Throws controller and goes to room and cries*
#Guy 1# - Fuck I hate people who get Playstation Rage
