Playing a fighting game online is a great way to cut loose and blow off a little steam. There are all kinds of online fighting games out there, so it is just a matter of finding one that appeals to you. It all depends what you're looking for. A lot of people like online shooting games. These can vary from space combat simulators to side scrolling shooters, to first person shooters.
In my opinion, there are a few major factors that determine which games are the best for you personally. One of them is what type of scenario you like best. Do you want something modern, futuristic, historical, or fantastic? Setting can definitely affect how much you enjoy your online fighting game.
Another factor is whether the online fighting game is a one player game, a player versus player game, or a multiplayer online game where you can challenge people from all over the world. In my opinion, the latter is more exciting, but some people like to play against the computer rather than to compete with strangers.
Of course, the most important factor in choosing an online fighting game is playability. No matter how cool the scenario, how nice the graphics, and how intense the the competition, a game with poor playability is not going to be that exciting in the long run. A good game will have intelligent opponents, sophisticated arcade controls, and realistic movement. If your game doesn't have all of these, it will probably wear thin for you pretty soon.
Another thing to consider when selecting an online fighting game is how long you want to play it for. Some online fighting games are actually more like campaigns designed to be played for hours at a time. Other ones are arcade video games, made so that you can play them for 5 or 10 minutes at a time and still get a good game playing experience. If you are just looking for something to play for a couple minutes now and then while blowing off steam from work, I definitely recommend the latter. Playing the wrong online fighting game, after all, can suck you in for more time than you have, stopping you from getting your work done. I know what it is like to get stuck in online video games for more time than you have. I've lost whole days to that from time to time. If you are just beginning, you should be cautious. It can happen to you too!
