    Hahaha... the reason why these days are so awesome is the fact that they're gone forever. Going back to them would mean profanation ;).

    Here in the UK my parents were very video game adverse. There only reliquish was to get me a Game Boy in 1990 as it didn't interrupt with their living room TV habits. Arcades whilst enduring to me at the local cinema or bowling alley were considered "dens of evil and tobacco" by my parents. Of course it all came about that I'd rebel and by 16 (1996) owned at least 6 game consoles with my own money and my room at home was decked out! The one prize that I never achieved was until I was in my early 30s 5 years ago. The Neo Geo. This was featured heavily on Channel 4's show "GamesMaster" where they pitted players against celebrities on the latest games. Glad I have one now, and appreciate that those who owned one in the 90s REALLY had an arcade at home! For me..... SAMURAI SHOWDOWN/SPIRITS
    I suck at competitive one-on-one beat-em-ups....Fancy a game of Puzzle Bobble?

    oh man, i remember games master. that old mans head projected onto the screen. i always remember the episode where one kid was asking him tips on a level he couldn't beat or didn't understand how to get through in desert strike for the megadrive, and the games master couldn't give him an answer.

    and i completely understand about parents being strict them days. especially over video games. remember it was a time when "professionals" were trying to convince everyone that video games effected the development of children's brains.

    I have played some Neo Geo games in the past on various compilations and via MAME, but the game that got me hooked on Neo Geo and to get a CMVS was Waku Waku 7. Even though now, I still have a bootleg copy, I still enjoy the game alot and it is still one of my favorite fighting games on the Neo Geo.

    Metal Slug. I got into the neogeo much later than i'd of liked too. By the time I got into it it was 97. Granted I think SNK's best years where 97 to 99.

    I was in a CompUSA in 1991 and they had a demo system setup with King of the Monsters, I will still playing NES and I was blown away by the graphics and game play.

    Art Of Fighting.

    Played it for the first time in 1991 in a cabinet housing it along with King Of The Monsters and Baseball Stars 2. Was super impressed from the minute I laid eyes on it.

    My heart sank to my stomach when I saw the price tag for the console in a gaming magazine, and I felt like i'd never own it. Fast forward 26 years, and I finally snagged a North American AES with Fatal Fury. My life is complete!

    Fatal Fury 2 was my first arcade, I was impressed with Mai and TErry´s background but, to be honest, I spent like millions on Metal Slug
