Tomonobu Itagaki came up with the story for Dead or Alive and the characters. He also revived Ninja Gaiden, another great game. This shows, that hard work went into Dead or Alive and it has been well thought out. Itagaki is a great game designer and has helped create many great games.
Dead or Alive is well known for it's sex appeal in its female characters, notably (and quite ridiculously in my opinion) the animation of their breasts. This can be seen as a good thing though, as it helped the game gain a lot of fame and popularity. I don't think this is a setback as the game also has a cast of male characters, different ethnicities, ages and fighting styles. I think it caters to both men and women (given they like fighting games. This debate will not be about whether fighting games are steered toward men).
Dead or Alive focuses on fast 3D gameplay, and unlike other fighting games, encourages the player to strike their opponent quickly and efficiently rather than slow heavy attacks, or long and technical string attacks. This means that the game is fun for new players as well as experienced players, as you can either 'mash buttons' and still have a chance of winning or you can focus on pulling off special attacks and dodging your opponent's strikes.
The Dead or Alive franchise also has a great story line. Each game can be considered a good stand alone, or can be played in order to create a rich and full story featuring DOATEC Competitions, as well as complex relationships between characters, will extensive back stories.
There are 19 games and spinoffs in the Dead or Alive franchise, showing that they are not a one trick pony and have the ability to keep producing fresh new material, while not changing too much.
They also produced a film titled DOA: Dead or Alive, showing they do not just stick to video games.

Mortal Kombat is the american franchise fighting game that has touched the hearts of many action gamers world wide. (http://en.wikipedia.org...). It is well known for it's unique characters, and brutal finishers. There are currenty 24 deifferent Mortal Kombat games (most fighting, but some even action-adventure), as well as movies, TV shows, books, and even a music album including music from the first Mortal Kombat game. The more modern Mortal Kombat games have #D grapics that are better than all of the Dead Or Alive games ever created. A key feature of Mortal Kombat are the fatalities: bloody ends to fights that result in the murder of the losing character in various gruesome ways, some depending on the character that won, and others depending on the background, as shown in Mortal Kombat 9. A video of all possible fatalities in Mortal Kombat 9 is the video that is shown on this argument.
There are even special ends to fights that don't end in death, such as babalities(mk9), animalities and Mercy (both mk3). Mortal Kombat was made by Ed Boon and John Tobias. The first MK game was released in 2002, and since then, it has became a series people have loved since Street Fighter, only this was a whole lot bloodier. Btw, Ive never even heard of Dead or Alive until this debate.
