Although a lot of people will be expecting an AEW game to directly rival WWE's 2K series, there's a lot to be said for titles that fill their own niche. If anything, games like the Spike Chunsoft developed Fire Pro Wrestling series prove that when it comes to an authentic wrestling experience, gameplay really is king.

On the surface, the graphics might be a bit off putting for some and the control scheme can be a little confusing. Just beyond this however, is some of the deepest gameplay you’ll find in any wrestling game. Each wrestler has specific AI behaviours and an extensive move list so that everyone wrestles exactly as they do in real life.

This attention to detail has ensured that Fire Pro Wrestling has a dedicated fan base, one which includes top star Kenny Omega - who just so happens to be involved in some capacity in the decisions on the AEW game!
