When we think about fighting titles from the early 10’s decade names such as Soul Calibur V along with Injustice: Gods Among US are two titles that instantly comes to mind. Since its initial release for the PS3 and the Xbox 360 back in 2012 Soul Calibur V managed to reach at less 2.3 million copies worldwide in relation to sales. While the story mode for Soul Calibur V along with some of the new characters such as Pyrrah & Patroklos received mixed reception from fans and critics alike the game was still interesting and included modes such as “Quick Battle Mode” along with online multiplayer which contributed to the overall replay value of this title in general. However, as popular as Soul Calibur V was in 2012 it was not on the same level as Injustice: Gods Among US which was released the following year.
Injustice: Gods Among was a fighting video game that featured a star-studded roster of characters from the DC Universe such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Joker and many more. Also, despite being a fighting game with 2.5D gameplay it had a higher replay value than that of Soul Calibur V due to the cinematic quality of the story mode which is divided into several chapters along with the inclusion additional game modes such as Battle, Versus, Training. It should also be noted that online multiplayer game modes such as King of the Hill were popular for Injustice: Gods Among Us and were elements of the game that contributed to its overall appeal.
Since its initial release Injustice: Gods Among Us had won multiple “Game of the Year” awards in 2013 and managed to spawn a highly successful and critically acclaimed sequel called Injustice 2 which was released last year. In terms of which fighting title was a bigger attraction in the early 10’s there is no question that Injustice: Gods Among was a more popular game overall.
