    I've never played a single NeoGeo game until November of last year, aside from Puzzle Bobble 1 & 2, and a little bit of Agressors of Dark Kombat, Kabuki Clash and Twinkle Star Sprites.

    Blazing Star. It's still my favorite shooter and the only one I'm remotely good at. I played Samurai Spirits 2 before on PC, but at that time I didn't know the first thing about Neo Geo and thought it was a PC game (lol).

    The first was in the year 1994 I think, maybe 1995. It was Art of fighting (probably the 2nd game) on a Arcade machine in Montreal Canada. I've played a little of the game that time, I most wanted to beat King with a special attack so her t-shirt would be torn apart and show her bra . After that I don't remember playing other Neo Geo game, but got back to it thanks to Metal slug last year. and now I can finally play a lot of Neo Geo.

    lol no, I bought It now, I meant I now have a lot to play because I never played any at that time. If I already had played them I would not play them now, there are too much good games to play before playing it through a second time. At the 90's I was a lot into Street fighter and Mortal Kombat, they were more accessible to have one at home (in a port for Sega Genesis) than a Neo Geo console.

    Arcade was Shock troopers and Neo Turf Masters. AES was Magician Lord, the pixels were amazing back then.
    Looking for UK copies of Dive Alert Becky's Version, Puzzle Link 1 and 2, Gals Fighters, and Pocket Reversi.

    the first neo game that really got me into snk was kof 95. in the school yard there was a rival debate on which game was better, my favourite game of all time (at the time) street fighter alpha or this other game they were calling kof 95.

    i thought to my self that there was no way that any game could be better than sf alpha. so after school we went to the arcade to finally see this so called better than sf alpha game, and when i first saw it, i was very impressed by the realistic yet very manga/anime art style, and the variety of great looking characters. i couldn't believe sam seed the master from jacky chan's drunken master was a playable character (chen). and kyo also caught my eye.

    and we were amazed that terry and andy from the fatal fury games were also playable charters. so although i still didn't think it was better than street fighter alpha, i really took a liking to kof 95 and accepted snk as a true competitor to capcom.

    Puzzle Bobble or Mutation Nation. My local pizza hut had a cool 1-slot MVS arcade that had these two games in it. I would always play on it whenever I dined in there.

    Over the years the cabinet started to fail, with the first being the monitor looking like complete dog shit and then the sound going out. Later on the 2player controls got smashed in somehow.

    Then around 2010 I wanted to take a picture of it for posterity and it was gone like the wind.

    Rest in peace 1 slot mvs cabinet wherever you are.

    You're just upset that you're too goddam stupid to understand the games and whiff infinites.

    Local roller skate rink had a Samsho in it around around when Street Fighter 2 was king shit. Wasn't hooked on the game but that's what introduced me to the system and got me hooked.

    King of the fighter 94, and Metal Slug are games that hooked me up. Also the arcade cab was different than the rest and I always thought it having multiple games was so cool.

    Had to be samsho and Metal Slug.

    Playing both those games brings me back to simpler times.

    Got me there. I should've clarified it was a 1 slot cabinet but with a 2 slot motherboard. The cabinet was one of those small ones with like a 13" crt?.

    Originally it had just puzzle bobble, but soon after it had mutation nation as well. The marque however didn't have two places for marques, but only one. Maybe the operator fucked up and put a 1-slot marque

    Maybe it was a conversion, but it did have the side art as well.

    Super Sidekicks 2 in a machine with retroprojector and seats. Amazing.

    Apart from that, Metal Slug 1&2, Shock Troopers, Puzzle Bobble 2, Gapporin, Battle Flip Shot, Windjammers, Neo Turf Masters, Neo Drift Out, Super Sidekicks 2... Everything that was not a 1vs1 fighter.

    Yes, I know this feeling, you captured it perfectly. I'd only add, that also Terry's bitter vengeance backstory, briefly insinuated in the atmospheric intro, hooked me instantly. It made the whole experience dirtier and more cinematic than of any SFII character. South Town's crime scene made all the difference, you could almost hear the white lines being sucked in.
