Can't remember seeing this one @ sse so here we go:

http://www.toribash.com/

A game of dueling where you can design your fighting moves, counter-moves, combos and such from scratch. Use your imagination and, for example, start a fight with a single slap on the face, moving on to a kick to groin and after a few nifty moves, ending the fight with a decapitating roundhouse kick. Or maybe you prefer headbutting your opponents head through the floor?

Learning to do so is not done in a few minutes so if you're plain stupid, got a attention span of a goldfish or otherwise uncapable of enjoying massive bloodsplatter then this game is clearly not for you. But if you like martial arts & gaming (or the two combined) then it might pay off to check this one out.

So, if you think this sounds interesting and you would like want to try it, don't set the bar too high at start just to avoid frustration. I'd suggest first learning the meaning of each limb and the different ways you can operate them using the singleplayer target dummy opponent. Then possibly carrying on with the multiplayer on beginner mode, possibly with judo or such so you can train to keep your balance.

Just to show a sample of the game, here's a tutorial on how to perform a simple kick (dozens of other clips also available @ youtube).

Looks like a silly amount of work just to make a little stickfigure perform a single move. Skewed effort/reward ratio I tells ya.
I also dont see any massive bloodsplatter. This makes me frown. Like so.

I would agree with you if the learning wouldn't be so damn fun. Try for yourself if you won't believe me. And perhaps the video I linked wasn't the most inspiring one, not to mention it indeed lacked the massive bloodsplatter I was talking about.

Let's try again, shall we!

P.S. I also might have given you a too harsh image on the learning process also. After ~15-30mins you'll surely grasp the basics.

Hard to learn, but its very rewarding once you get the hang of it and manage to pull of some cool moves.
