Inspired partly by this article as well as seeing some of the arcade sticks being shown off in the Pick Up thread, I’m interested in everyone’s thoughts on classic fighters. Specifically, if someone with exposure to only Street Fighter 2 is looking to give the genre another shot, what would you recommend? Are certain system ports better than others? 2d vs 3d? etc.
Having a Dreamcast, I’ve always felt like I should pay more attention to fighting games, and I like the idea of getting into one, but perhaps it’s just my 15-year-old self forgetting that I don’t have time to practice and get good at these things anymore. But then again, maybe it’s something my son and I could play together…provided we don’t get too angry at each other.
I’ve had my eye on Marvel vs Capcom 2 (DC) for a while now, but any time a used game is in the $40+ range, it moves from impulse buy to “ehhhh, let me think about it for several years first” territory.
