    Playing the original Fatal Fury in a local arcade was my first exposure, but there was something about the release of kof95 that stood out from everything else to me. From gameplay to design, kof95 is saturated with an approach that I would come to recognize as being unique to SNK. I've been hooked ever since lol

    I had seen the Fatal Fury anime movies and that led me to the 3-D Fatal Fury: Wild Ambition on PS1. A few years later I played KOF 98 and it blew my mind that the dudes from Fatal Fury were in it! I also got to play Samurai Shodown 3 at the Kenwood Mall and it blew me away. I've loved SNK since.

    It was three different games for me. There was a mall near our house that had a 4 slot and my brother and I would play Baseball Stars Professional, the machine had other games but wed just stick with Baseball. There was a Lionel Playworld Toy store that had a NEO GEO system with Magician Lord that we would just drool over the gameplay demo. The third would be King of the Monsters, you could actually destroy buildings and they stayed destroyed, and we thought the graphics were amazing!

    This is a lovely story and reminds me how cool it would have been to experience more games back then, in the exact same way as you did. They taste so different, far more different then those you played just recently for the first time. Those you played without childhood to exfiltrate your adult observatory skills and/or cynicism.

    Metal Slug was definitely the first NeoGeo game that got me into it. I still love the series to this day.
