Fighting video games belong to a very specific genre that is trying to simulate close-range combat against various opponents. The player controls an on-screen character and engages in close combat with his/her opponent, which can be either controlled by AI or by another player. While ranged and melee weapons may be present in fighting games, they strongly emphasize brutal and spectacular hand-to-hand combat.
Fighting games were one of the dominant genres in the 1990s, thanks to the legendary franchises like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, still considered by many as the best titles of all time. Since then, the genre had it’s ups and downs, eventually evolving from 2D to 3D graphics. Other fighting games worth mentioning are Tekken, Guilty Gear, Soul Calibur and Virtua Fighter.

They have to lay in the mud for many hours waiting for that one, perfect shot. Being a sniper in a video game is a little more appealing as game designers try their best to make it an immersive, action-packed experience.
Sniper franchise is a series of tactical shooters developed and published by City Interactive for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. It consists of four installments: Sniper: Art of Victory, Sniper: Ghost Warrior, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. All games are tactical shooters played from a first-person perspective. As the title might suggest, a large portion of the game consists of stealth, staking out targets and taking them out with the use of sniper rifles. As is the case with Sniper Elite, one of the game’s key elements is realistic ballistics. Bullet trajectories are subject to wind strength, gravity, breathing and flight time, all of which players must consider while taking a shot. It further adds to Sniper’s realism and immersion.
Sniper games were praised for their theme and mechanics and sold over 6 million copies worldwide.
