What game do you feel has the best combat of all time? Why?

Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

any combat

I don't think there is such thing as a game with the single best combat system. I mean, do both third person shooters and fighting games have combat?

I guess it depends on what you mean by combat system.

It's just an opinion, like what you think is the best game ever.

Final Fantasy Tactics.

I guess for the FPS genre, I would probably pick the original Crysis. For Fighting, my favorite fighting game is definitely Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom, considering that's probably my favorite fighting game (although I haven't played the second game). Third Person action game, I'd pick Vanquish. For the genre Bayonetta falls into, Bayonetta.

Assassins Creed series I guess, best balance between being easy, empowering the player, and looking awesome.

The Arkham games have the best melee combat system along with Sleeping Dogs. The gunplay I found the best in Vanquish and Max Payne 3.

A tossup between the Deus Ex's "Do anything" approach or Bayonetta's absurdly wacky and fun combat.

Arkham Asylum has the best melee combat I have ever seen. It's fluid, varied, brutal, and fun.

For an action game, I say Bayonetta is my favorite. Fighting game is a toss up between Street Fighter 3, UMvC, and Arcana Heart 3. My favorite combat system in an RPG is FFXII, I love the gambit system.

I like games that let you control your allies' AI - Front Mission 4 (a little gem on the PS2) and the original Dragon Age come to mind. You could really cascade the awesomeness there.

As far as combat systems you control in an active sense, I liked the original Soul Calibur's system. Whoever thought of "neutral guard" is a genius. Big fan of the Deus Ex series' "play however you like" approach, too.

Street Fighter III: Third Strike for the 2-D Fighting game genre.
Soul Calibur II for the 3-D Fighting game genre
Batman Arkham City for 3rd person genre
Max Payne 3 for Shooting genre
Super Smash Bros Brawl for Multiplayer genre
Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction for sheer madness

I fondly remember playing Front Mission 4 a few years ago almost ritually with a glass of wine for a month every day after work. It was a strange time in my life.

Honorable mentions:
Yakuza Dead Souls
Red Ninja: End of Honor The game is pretty bad, but the combat was incredibly fun.
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War II [Download] It feels more like an action RPG, which makes it the most fun RTS I've ever played. No buildings and limited units with a variety of abilities is more fun than it should be.
The Legend of Dragoon You can take as long as you want to choose an attack, and then you have to have skill to actually pull it off. Shadow Hearts is similar in that respect, but relies more on just timing rather than full QTE's like Legend of Dragoon.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift EXTEND - standard edition Best controls of any fighting game I've ever played, and it feels balanced enough.
I also played a fun MMO shoot 'em up RPG hybrid a while back that had fun combat, but I can't remember what it was called.

#1: MegaTen Online. I liked the rock-paper-scissors type combat and having a demon to back you up. I also liked the demons and the demon recruitment system, but that's not combat.

The World Ends With You for sheer originality.

Kid Icarus for most satisfying learning curve.

Gravity Rush for good idea, bad execution.

Kid Icarus: Uprising had fantastic flight combat, which was sadly off set by abominable ground controls.

Summon Night has the best ARPG combat

Super Smash Bros. has the best action combat
