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.
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 fandom might not be as big, but many people have enjoyed playing it.
If you never played a 3-D fighting game before, I recommend you to try this game out. It's a game the whole family can enjoy! :)
I wanna play Tekken 5 again!

Dude, you play Tekken also?

Tekken's tite! You gotta try it out!

Hey, who's your favorite Tekken character?

Tekken will fuk your life up. The game is the epitomy of the phrase "easy to learn, difficult to master." Virtua Fighter is a great game in it's own right. As is any Street Fighter. But Tekken is the pinnacle of fighting games. The newest Tekken, Tekken 4, is however a shallow and hollow version of the greatest fighting game ever, Tekken Tag Tournament.
I got hooked at Tekken 2. Good thing Tekken 4 is a piece of crap, otherwise i would have never been able to get away from the game.

A good fighting game that requires an IQ above 10 in order to master. Skill in this game is a rare occurance and is often ridiculed by newbies.

How good one does depends on the skill of the player, not measured in:
SKILL = DAYS x YEARS
Capcom VS SNK 2: EO can take up to a year to get good at. Tekken is reasonable (WARNING: Depends on skill of the player, not for everyone!)

A fighting game for the Playstation or Playstation 2 console. It has mixed reactions in people, for instance, some people don"t like the game because the characters fight like robots, or some people think it is the best fighting game ever.
Tekken is a fighting game, pure and simple.

The epic tale of the dysfunctional Mishima family that was cursed by the Devil.
Tekken is a 3D clone of Street Fighter.

Abe, do you have a split personality or something? You made two contradictory posts.

Tekken is the SHIT. I have been playing this game for 3 years and I still play it because it fucking owns. I have Virtua Fighter 4 for ps2 and it sucks major sick. The graphics hurt my eyes and the gameplay is ridiculously slow/boring and I have tried to learn it. Anyone that thinks tekken is a copy or its just a mashing game is a retard. It is a easy game to learn , but to master it , you need practice u fucking Virtua Fighter faggots.
Any Tekken game > Any Virtua Fighter game, period.
