    Bluegrass was pretty awesome because he fought his adversaries with the power of his music

    He definitely would add something to a SilverHawks stage background.

    Man, these stages are so pimp. Artistry is such an interesting thing in classic games. Especially for classic arcade games since there was fewer graphical limitations.

    Yeah, same. The jacket hanging on the second floor is completely unnecessary and doesn't fit at all. Shoulda just left one on Rob's car and been done with it. I like to imagine SNK staff talking about that

    Genjuro's early stages were always well done. The progression of the children in III realizing the magnitude of what they were seeing, coupled with the mother taking them to safety was just great.

    Fucking amazing. The power of the Neo, you're so into the game that you really don't see how much detail went into the backgrounds.

    I wanna see a quick comparison of Capcom's best BG vs. SNK's best BG.

    I know Capcom's BGs are no where near what SNKs were.

    nice thread!! Never noticed it until now, but itreally a pleasure to see al those great bg
    Have Matrimelee backgrounds been ripped off? It's been a while that I haven't played the game, but if I remember correctly some of them where quite crazy (or maybe was just the BGM that made them look better).

    A couple of my favs. The stage specials is one of the reasons why I fell in love with SamSho.

    I always thought the Alien in the cauldron was a pretty interesting touch in Genan's stage in SS-II. I tell ya', the Shiranui clan has some pretty discerning taste.

    Im not sure was it Terry´s stage in FF3 where there was monkey jumping. I think thats most awesome background. Its always hard stage for me because im just keep watching that monkey.

    Thats a cool one.

    Just by looking at all these backdrops makes me remember how great the original SNK were.

    I always felt that – for their time – Apha/Zero 2 and 3 were demonstrative of Capcom’s best work, in terms of stage art. SF-3 has some winners as well.
    I honestly think that SNK has outdone pretty much every other developer in the background department, not just in the technical aspect of it all, but in the fact that SNK’s stage backgrounds have more character put into the art itself. It makes sense when you think about it, though; SNK was first and foremost an arcade game manufacturer, which requires great presentation. Even some of their games which have aged poorly in terms of gameplay still look like a million bucks.

    Wish I could find a gif of Hon Fu's stage from FF3. That made my jaw drop the first time I saw it. And the second. MAYBE the third.

    That'd be one loooooong gif, man. I know what you're saying, though; it's a great stage.

    This isn't a gif, but it's at least nine minutes or so of material worth gawking at:
