If someone were to organize a Street Fighter vs. KOF vs. Guilty Gear tournament who do you think would win? My personal opinion is that KOF would seeing as how they have **more star players **involved.
The tournament scence would basically boil down to the following characters:
Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Oro, Urien, & Gill
Ryo,Takuma, Robert, Kyo, Iori, Terry, K’, Kula, K’9999, Rock, Geese, Goenitz, Igniz, Krizalid, Ash, Orochi(is leaving out Zero all together, well, because I think he sucks)
Slayer, Sol-Badguy, Ky, Justice, I-no
As you can see, I’m only counting the **main enemies **and **main characters **of each series. Seeing as how KOF is an amalgamation of different series(AOF, FF, etc), one should assume that KOF would win seeing as how they have more **star players **(**main enemies **and main characters)envolved. …But anyway, here we go
Before we get started let me state that there has been a number of KOF vs. SF topics in the fighting games discussion over the years(no GG vs. though) and they have all involved the SF party stating that Ryu defeats Kyo because of his experience and the KOF party(to which I used to adhere to as Ramirez Platinum) stating that Kyo beats Ryu because of his talent. Because of this startling fact I have decided to label the main characters and main enemies of each series(some of them / the rest I haven’t figured out yet) under the labels experience, talent, and a new outline I’d like to introduce, Data.
experience(dominated by SF’ers even though The GG guys take the cake):
Ryu, Oro, Akuma, Sol(150 plus years my man, hell yes…), Slayer(Immortal, resembles a 49 year old man, has been around longer than Sol)
Talent(dominated by, of course, KOF’ers)
Kyo, K’, Rock, Terry, Ken
Seeing as how SNK officially labled Krizalid’s fighting style as** Data**, I would assume that he had more than anyone else here on the playing field. Simply put; he is an amalgamation of Data.
Data(mostly dominated by KOF’ers):
Krizalid, GIll(not the typical SF experience), Urien, K’9999, Igniz
experience - 1 a : direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge b : the fact or state of having been affected by or gained knowledge through direct observation or participation
2 a : practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation of or participation in events or in a particular activity b : the length of such participation <has 10 years experience in the job>
**talent - 2 archaic : a characteristic feature, aptitude, or disposition of a person or animal
3 : the natural endowments of a person
4 a : a special often creative or artistic aptitude b : general intelligence or mental power : ABILITY
5 : a person of talent or a group of persons of talent in a field or activity
data - 1 : factual information (as measurements or statistics) used as a basis for reasoning, discussion, or calculation <the data is plentiful and easily available – H. A. Gleason, Jr.> <comprehensive data on economic growth have been published – N. H. Jacoby>
2 : information output by a sensing device or organ that includes both useful and irrelevant or redundant information and must be processed to be meaningful
3 : information in numerical form that can be digitally transmitted or processed**So basically:
Talent = a natural born knack
experience = the basis for strategical thinking
Data = cough coughwhat bosses usecough cough
Now being the KOF fan that I am, I’d have to say that talent is the superior quotient seeing as how with a half years worth of training Kyo was able to be on equal footing with Goenitz after being defeated by him. This shows that talent is superior seeing as how it is akin to Kyo grasping an idea instantly where as it would take Ryu a couple of years to grasp. See what I am saying? Talent is the natural born knack.
Ken graps instantly where as it would take Ryu a whole year or two to pick up on what Ken instantly grasped. Ken Masters doesn’t even have to train as much as Ryu and yet he is still about as good as him thanks to his natural born talent.
I’m all for KOF. What do you all think?
