Two random fellows on the street get into a fight right before your eyes. Much to your delight, the two fighters seemed rather adept at fighting as each fighter gracefully unleashes flurries of attacks upon each other. Inevitably, one fighter goes down after an intense battle of give and take with a good bit of mind games thrown in. Now comes the hard part. Do you care as to why these two seemingly random people started fighting each other? Or do you only care that the two put on a very entertaining show of strength and guile? In the case of most fighting games, we don’t care as to why the characters in the roster list decided to pick a fight with the other characters on the roster list, but the SoulCalibur series has a rather special distinction of being a fighting game that had a story underneath it that doesn’t involve a freakin’ combat tournament.
