Who is still playing their old fighting games?


#1

I went to a game store earlier today and on impulse, picked up a copy of Rival Schools. It’s had been years since I played and after about an hour, I was thinking how much I’d rather be playing Project Justice. I was so exited when I saw it especially because as a broke kid, I remember selling it to buy Viewtiful Joe. There are a few exceptions (SF2, 3rd Strike and almost anything on Dreamcast) but when I think about it, there’s not a lot that I would go back to and play. What fighters do you guys still play, or don’t?


#2

almost all of snks games and doujin games, not to mention some of capcoms black sheep games (cyberbots, joojoo). I find their quality to appealing than the mainstream stuff we have. Been playing eternal fighter zero and loving every second of it.


#3

3rd Strike y’all it’s Street Fighter 3.


#4

i actually just started playing mvc1 in depth, and i still play mvc2 everyday


#5

Still play Guilty Gear ^Core. Loving it since 2006.


#6

I still have my old Dreamcast hooked up and I’m always up for a trip down memory lane. Also my school laptop has some roms of classic games. Super Turbo, MSH, Mark of the Wolves, etc. Fun stuff.


#7

still playin’ project Justice, still playin’ Jojo’s, still playin’ MvC2. I get around with other games too


#8

I still got the snes hooked up with killer instinct. I play that on the daily.


#9

Play 3s several days a week. It’s my favorite game so no motivation to pick up new games. I’d play alpha 2 more often but only option is GGPO and I don’t really like playing online. I’d like to play ST but its too hard :’(


#10

MvC2, 3S, CvS2, and GGAC all get my action at my place than SF4.


#11

I still play: 3rd Strike, KOF 2002, Last Blade 2, and MK Trilogy pretty seriously. In the case of 3S, I play it daily pretty much. I’ve been playing them regularly since about 2005, casually many years before that, and seriously since about 2007. After my sister passed away, I lost alot of passion for most games, but I still love my fighting games.

I literally play them everyday, though 3S takes most of my time. I’ve been really enjoying preparations for 3SO. 3S is just such a special game, I don’t know how to describe it, but those of us that love it know what I mean.

I tried to get into SF4, but it just seems like such a step back to me. If only they had improved on the 3S formula with a roster the size of SSF4’s, would have been legendary.

You can check out my setup if you’d like**, not trying to hog the thread or anything.( Let me know if it is in bad taste.) :** [media=youtube]tysRHm9T0Tg[/media] .

I use a Pelican Real Arcade with Happ/IL parts on the Xbox 1 emu’s, and an HRAP EX-SE on 360.

Gotta be ready to milk them scrub tears when the game comes out after all.


#13

Ha ha, well, that’s the reward for years of dedication right? I’m more worried about the vets than the new players. I know alot of us have been playing for a while, but I know there is some stiff competition out there. I’m just happy 3S is getting the justice it deserves.

When I first decided to register here after lurking for a couple years, Tebbo chewed me out a bit when I made suggestions about what type of small balance changes I would like to 3S. I was a new account holder so I guess he thought I was a criticizer lol. Funny thing is, I was impressed, immediately gained respect for him. I thought it was awesome that there were other people that still had that much passion for the game. I would have done the same thing.

As for the newbs, hell I may not be the best but I earned it. Anyone with years under their belt deserves some respect.


#14

GGAC,ST/HDR,VS


#15

Darkstalkers 3


#16

I recently flipped on my ps2 and started derpin’ around with dbz budokai 3. That game is awesome!


#17

GGXXAC, HNK, SBX, CVS2 are still played on regular basics by me and my group
also others that are played frm time to time like MB, FUC, DBZBT3 to name some


#18

I wish I still had folks to play CVS2 with, but most of my CVS2 buddies moved back to the US.


#19

I’ll still be playing GGAC when the next Guilty Gear comes out, even if it takes ten more years.

Also I play Jojo’s sometimes.


#20

3S and ST are the only games I play. I usually play 3S more than ST but I have a money match coming up, so I’ve been playing ST a lot lately.

It sucks not having any training partners but I think the CPU (Lv. 8) is a fine replacement.
