Being around for that long and as action-packed the entire franchise is, it couldn’t make for more perfect video game material. To that end, there’s been dozens of Dragon Ball games over the years and a majority of them are, well, bad. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that Dragon Ball is one of the single most iconic franchises of the modern era and publishers can get by on name while sacrificing quality. Whatever the case, with that many under the name, someone ought to rank the best Dragon Ball Z games – and we’re here to do just that.

A quick disclaimer in that many of the games have the same pitfalls. The roster and gameplay is always repetitive across every game, so we’re actually going to cancel those as criticisms for the sake of this list sounding, well, repetitive. We’ll also keep it strictly Dragon Ball Z centered; while the games can definitely feature Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball GT, and Dragon Ball Super, they can’t be the primary focus.
