I’ve been lurking the forums for a while now, siphoning as much info as I can about Street Fighter, and finally decided to join and contribute to the community :wgrin:. I’m a huge 3S fan, not as much 4, but my first post pertains to a different series. I recently got into the Darkstalkers series (a little late, I know), and am a bit confused about the multiple versions of the same game. My question is this: Why isn’t Vampire Hunter 2 played in tournaments instead of the first Vampire Hunter (Darkstalkers 2)? It’s the most recent, and as far as I know, most up to date version, while retaining all the same characters. Or am I missing something? On that same note, why do people play the first version of Vampire Hunter (95/03/02) in tournaments instead of the second (international) version? Are they just being stubborn?
I ask because I only want to play one version of the game, so I’d like to know which is the “proper” version (meaning, used in tournaments), and why, so that I may begin my training. I know the original Vampire Savior is superior to Vampire Savior 2 (no characters taken out, probably other things I don’t know), but why is the original Vampire Hunter preferred and not Vampire Hunter 2?
