Inspired by the Sentient XBox's fighting game thread and Akira's Street Fighter polls. I was going to make a tournament-style poll thingy but that requires too much work. It's Sunday. Even the Lord took a break.

So here it is, 10 2D fighters. Which one is the best?

Discuss. :D

Wow, I totally did not know Whip was a she until recently. Are you named after the KoF character? If so you are my new favorite BenBo poster.


Damn. This tough. Should have been Multi-Choice.


I love SF but I prefer KoF but I've recently fallen in love with Guilty Gear.

I'm not a HUGE fighting game fan, but kof's probably the series that I've had the most fun with over the years.

Gotta go with SFII.

I had to go KoF. It just more fun than Street Fighter to me.

Mmhm. :) I used to have her 2k portrait as my avatar... until I decided to go with an Elvira one then a Baroness one. I'll switch back, eventually. Whip is awesome. :D

Yeah, this and the 3D one is touuuuuugh. It's like asking a mother to pick her favorite child.

LOL! I had a list of 13 games, but I forgot the maximum for poll options was 10, so Time Killers had to go. So did Eternal Champions and Art of Fighting.

Weapon Lord was awful too. MAN. :no:

I used to love using Whip in KoF 99. That move where she'd grab you with whip and then drag you laughing and then start stomping on you was the greatest. I really miss that game I stepped on it and broke it about 2 years ago.

I might go find a KoF character to use as my avatar too. That's why I loved the capcom/Snk games so much. All the characters I loved in one place.

I love that too! Hah, everyone falls for it. I was trying to find an animated gif of that, but no such luck.

I have KOF 99 on my Dreamcast -- well, I *had* it... and I have one on my computer. King is also very awesome in that one.

When I first saw King (when I was like 11) I was like that's one feminine dude.

But I have to admit (and don't judge me) that Benimaru had the greatest impact on me in the Capcom vs. SNK games. I guess that figures.

I voted Street Fighter 3 but would've gone with Marvel vs. Capcom 2 if it was available.

I sunk about forty bucks into World Heroes at the arcade for my 15th birthday. No other fighting game has been able to make me do that at the arcade.

Not my fault the maximum poll options are 10! Something had to give. And "Cable pwns everyone" 2 had to go. :D

Dang. You are one resilient person. World Heroes Perfect made me pull out some baby hairs. That game takes SNK Hard to a whole new level.

never heard of it. Is it on any systems?

It's essentially a Street Fighter clone but it has its own unique gameplay and such. It was also the first fighting game to have a Bruce Lee clone. :D

A version of the first one came out for the SNES, and it was a decent port, back in the days of 2D fighting mania (I MISS THOSE DAYS). It's also on Neo-Geo, SNK's machine. And in the arcades...which means they're available for MAME and other such emulators.

World Heroes, World Heroes 2, World Heroes 2 Jet, and World Heroes Perfect.

Fuuma and Hanzou, the rivals (Ryu/Ken...except they're not friends), also make an appearance on Neo-Geo Battle Colosseum, SNK's answer to Marvel vs. Capcom 2. check it out: http://www.fightersgeneration.com/games/neogeobattlecolluseum.html

I also realized I left off... that awful Double Dragon fighting game, Clay Fighter, Brutal: Paws of Fury, TMNT: Tournament Fighters, The Last Blade, Asuka 120%, Advanced Variable GEO, Way of the Warrior (BARF), Kasumi Ninja, Primal Rage.

But I think it's mostly for the best. :lol:

Anyone going to EVO next year? http://www.shoryuken.com

And does anyone have Street Fighter Collection for X-Box? I'll get Capcom vs. SNK 2 for it if I hadn't been scared off by the fact that the online lags like Hell.

to this day, i still play sf2 on occasion. a few months ago, my son got a ps2 game that has about 20 or so old capcom arcade games including sf2. he loves it and it's fun for me to be able to share a game from my childhood with my son.

Guilty Gear, up until GG: Isuka. Mostly because they actually redraw their sprites more than once a decade. Fucking Capcom...

The Guilty Gear series for me! Reigning 2d champ! Love the Street Fighter series, SNK and all that, but GG stands above the rest. Great characters, ever present mysterious story, awsome fast pace gameplay. My friends and I battle constantly on the PSP version, and there's a new one coming out this week! :boogie: World Heroes was the shit back in the day though. SNK is releasing a collection in Japan in october, and hopefully they put it out here too like they did the AoF and Fatal Fury collections.
