Growing up in the 90's, I've played my share of those very entertaining, side scrolling fighting games.
Mortal Kombat, Virtual Fighters, King of Fighters, Street Fighter, Dead or Alive, and more.
Which one was your favorite?
Its very hard to choose, I guess I would go:
1.Street Fighter - first fighting game I ever played, I played this game with my cousins almost every day when I was a kid.
Favorite charater: Ken
2.Mortal Kombat - hard choice between MK and KoF but I choose MK because of its awesome fatalities.
Favorite character: Sub-Zero
3.King of Fighters - One of the most popular games in Asia, I see this game every electronic store I go to in China. If you havent played this, I recommend it.
Favorite character: Kyo or Terry
What are your favorite old school fighting games?
You might have seen this already but its probably very well done:
MK vs SF(Ryu vs Scorpian)
Akuma vs Chameleon
Ken vs Raiden
