We're greatly anticipating Tekken 6 for the PlayStation 3, and if it's a landmark achievement like its predecessor, you readers may eventually say the sixth installment will be the best of the current generation.

As is, you say Tekken 5 is certainly the best fighter of the last generation, as it easily wins the Gold medal in the Best PS2 Fighter Poll, outstripping WWE SmackDown: Here Comes The Pain and Soul Calibur III on its way to victory. There's no doubt that fans of the Tekken series adored the fifth entry, primarily because it once again took another step towards one-on-one battling greatness. In fact, you probably know several gamers who went out of their way to hold Tekken 5 parties and competitions; a whole lot of people really gravitated to this game. What can you really complain about? The visuals? Physics? Character selection? Overall gameplay? Nah, none of that is really subject to too much negative scrutiny. So here are the final standings:

Gold Medal: Tekken 5

Silver Medal: WWE SmackDown: Here Comes The Pain

Bronze Medal: Soul Calibur III

So the best PS2 fighter has been determined, and we move on to the Best Sports/Racing PS2 game, and the poll is up now. We figure it's going to be an interesting showdown between some of the better football installments and the likes of Gran Turismo 4 . Then again, another title might take us completely by surprise; maybe there are a lot of Wipeout Fusion fans out there, or perhaps a whole lot of PS2 owners remember the glory days of the original SSX …that one made a big splash at launch. Let's find out!

I'm not voting in that list.
Burnout 3 isn't on there.

Yeah that's what I was going to say. Burnout 3: Takedown should have been up there instead of Burnout: Revenge.

I agree about the list but NFS underground 2 should be up there.

Too many people think that Hot Pursuit 2 was the last good NFS. It'll put up a much better fight.

I own Tekken 5 but I never was a huge fan of it. I preferred fighting games like Soul Calibur and Marvel VS Capcom 2. Another good fighting game that got no respect was Arcana Heart. I honestly believe people were turned off of Arcana Heart because of the all girl cast and were embarrassed by what their friends might think of them by owning the game. The fighting system in Arcana Heart was very intuitive and by having 11 characters along with 11 Arcana you had 121 fighting combinations at your disposal. Can anyone please tell me what makes Tekken 5 such a great fighting game. I truly love fighting games so I just just don't why I can't get into this game.

Shouldn't Racing and Sports be separate? Then again I guess you don't want to do TOO damn many voting polls.

I agree with everyone who said that Burnout 3 was better than Revenge. As for the fighting games, Soul Calibur was really the only one I played out of them. You shoulda put up some DBZ Budokai too lol.

Burnout 3, NFL 2K5, and in my opinion MLB 06: The Show should be up there, too

Tekken is lucky there wasn't a SF game during the ps2 years.

Gran Turismo 4 will win easily.
