The first game in the Darkstalkers series, Darkstalkers was a pioneering game in many ways as it helped develop some of the modern Street Fighter’s supers system. It was also one of the first fighting games to feature more radically unique and monstrous characters.

The second game in the Darkstalkers franchise, sometimes known as Darkstalkers 2, this game is known for its beautiful animation and stylish character design. With two types of supers in this game, it’s thought to have inspired some of the later designs in games like Street Fighter Alpha.

Vampire Savior - The Lord of Vampire

Technically the third Darkstalkers game, and sometimes called Darkstalkers 3, this and Vampire Hunter 2 and Vampire Savior 2 are all sometimes lumped together under that title. This game introduced the Dark Force system, a unique special system that deals unhealable damage.

Released simultaneously with Vampire Hunter 2, this was a Japan-only Arcade release. Similarly, elements of it were eventually included on a PS1 port of Darkstalkers 3. Mechanically exactly the same as Vampire Hunter 2.

Hyper Street Fighter II - Anniversary Edition

Originally a PS2 port of Street Fighter II, this has become one of the most popular versions of the classic game due to its lag-less inputs. If you've never played Street Fighter II, this is the best platform to play it on.

Super Gem Fighter Minimix

Super Gem Fighter is a unique chibi-art-style game that features both Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters. It uses a much-simplified battle system, and the aim isn’t just to defeat your opponent but gather gems.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

The definitive version of Puzzle Fighter, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is more Tetris or Puyo than Fighting Game. But that doesn’t stop it from being an incredible game. Definitely try this one when it comes out if you haven’t

Red Earth

A fantasy-based fighting game with monsters, knights, and ninjas. This game never took off as a series, but is still an interesting snapshot of the time, and definitely inspired later titles.

Cyberbots - Fullmetal Madness

A mecha fighting game with a really unique fighting system. Cyberbots is definitely worth checking out if you’ve got fond memories of the few Gundam fighting games that made it out of Japan. Worth checking out for how unique it is.
