Hello guys. I'm new to this place.
I've enjoyed playing some fighting games since the 90s, but the genre was never my specialty. I never dug too deeply into it despite knowing how they work at a basic level. My focus was more into things like beat 'em ups, shoot 'em ups or just action games in general.
However, I'd like to (casually) focus on the genre a bit more. The thing is, I don't really enjoy combo-heavy/highly competitive stuff so I'd rather avoid them as much as I can. I'm also not interested in post 90s fighters, so I'd rather focus only on the older ones, such as Capcom's CPS2 or SNK's NeoGeo MVS titles.
I read somewhere that most of the 90s stuff is pretty simple and not too combo-oriented. There are exceptions though, such as Third Strike for Capcom and KoF/Garou for SNK. Not really sure about any others.
Which games from that era a casual player like me should avoid?
