ive been a neo owner since 94, and was into fighters way before that like back in 91/92 (actually since way back in the yie are kung fu days on my uncles comodore) when i bought my snes with sf2ww. now i consider games like FFS, SSF2T, aof2, SS2 and KOF’s till 95 to be old school. these games worked on the old ass graphics before shit actually started looking nice and better animated (darkstalkers, SS3, LB, alpha). of these old school fighters which do you think is the best and if you feel like it add why. dont worry, ill go first for you chicken heads.
my personal top 5 of best old school fighters.
1- KOF 95. this was probably the last (or one of the last) old school fighters made with the ugly ass graphics and all. still looks pretty decent as it was the last of the dinosaurs to roam the earth.
2- SSII. this is a fun a truly great game even today. like 95, i couldnt decide which one should be first and which second. in the end of the day both are great games but SS only got shittier while kof kept improving.
3- SSF2T. the last old school sf game. complete with them ugly ass graphics and with some newly added damn nice looking frames to boot (chun’s d-u+k and such). best of the old sf games along with sf2t but this still remains superior in every possible way.
4- FFS. i consider FF3 to be one of the newer fighters compared to this. FF3 was to snk what SFA was to capcom, the last olds chool FF was special. i rank this baby as high as SSF2T, but if the choice had to be made i think i have to place SSF2T higher. not because it better, cause both are equally impressive. but thats just the way it is.
5- kabuki clash. yeah theres other fighters to choose from. but i actually enjoyed this game back in the arcade. theres more old schoolers that impressed back then, talking bout AOF1&2, double dragon, world heroes, karnovs revenge and a lot more oldies. id take this any day over games like galaxy fight or savage reign or gan gan or mortal kombat. since i gotta have a nr5 ill take kabuki clash as my pic.
lets hear it geezers.
