When Tekken 3 finally moved from our local arcade and into our living room, we knew nothing would ever be the same. As one of the best fighting games to ever be released, Tekken 3 was accessible to newbies and veterans alike with a roster of memorable characters: Eddy Gordo, Forest Law, Heihachi Mishima, Jin Kazama, and Ling Xiaoyu. You could even play as a tiny dinosaur named Gon, who farted on his opponents.

With an assortment of attacks and combos to learn, along with good controls, graphics, and sound, Tekken 3 was much more polished and smooth than its predecessors. And let's not forget the story, which featured an Aztec God apparently created by creatures from outer space, a power hungry man who goes so far as to kill his own grandson for his own benefit, and a young man who has the ability to transform into the devil. At a time where 2D fighting game series such as Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter reigned supreme, Tekken 3 made its presence known.
