    I'm split between '94 and '95, but I gave my vote to '94 for the sake of nostalgia. These are the installments I played the most of in the arcades, way back when. I absolutely loved '95s CD soundtrack. I'd listen to it all the time. But, I also love '94s stages. That 3D wall in Pao Pao Cafe, doves in London, parting trees in the jungle, gate in China, wire fence in NY ... Nothing can beat my memories of those stage intros. It was such a small thing, but it blew me away.

    One KoF to rule them all, One KoF to find them,
    One KoF to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them... '98.

    Same-ish. I voted for 02 but was split between that and 97.

    Edit: I've been playing XI on Atomiswave the most lately, though.

    TOO EASY. '98.

    they got '98 UM, '02 UM, and XIII on the Nesica cabinets at my local Round 1. I go there pretty much weekly. It's amazing.

    people always seem to be split between 98, and 95. can't really go wrong with any years in between there as well. 97 is great if you actually want to feel like you're in a tournament.

    My vote goes to 98.

    We have been talking about the same shit since 2002 or whenever, earlier if you count before the neo forums. So I think it's all been done before.

    There comes a time when a man gets bored, and tired of reading 10 year old threads, thus, he asks the same questions again seeking human neo geo related interaction.

    Then there comes a point - a moment - in life when your mind outlives its desires, its obsessions, when your habits survive your dreams, and when your losses... Maybe death is a gift.

    If you ended that statement with and I play people on it all the time it would have been worth a fuck you. Spending $.50 (probably more) to play something I play at home isn't as impressive.

    I picked '96. If I'm honest I really didn't start to love '98 till '98UM. It never had the one player spectacle that '96 gave you. Plus by the time '98 was out hardly anybody want to play it in the Chicago area. I had better luck with '02 honestly because by then the fighting games being produced slowed down.

    Am I the only one who voted based on first impressions associated with the series rather than on refined mechanics in later installments? It's not that I can't see the advantages of refinements and how these make the gameplay more enjoyable, but I have to admit, I often focus on visual appeal and cohesiveness. This is exactly why SF III New Generation is my favorite, instead of 3rd Strike. In later installments, KoF turned to pre-rendered elements and toned down color palette.

    As far as the visual appeal goes, '96 and '97 did not impress me, but '99 brought it back in a major way. I'd like to say I might change my mind about this in 10 years, when I've had enough of '94 and '95, but I can't see that happening, since New Generation never stopped being the number one SFIII for me.

    Oh I know it's all been talked about before, but there are always new people or old people who've played different ones over time.

    I'm not sure exactly why but I keep popping '00 in more than any other KoF. I'll admit I suck at fighters and probably don't even scratch the surface on the depth of them either, but '00 is just one I can pick up and have fun with.

    like most arcades these days, sure it isn't a bustling competitive scene other than for the latest available, in this case Tekken, but I do roll through with my circle of KoF friends and there are some strong players outside of us that will show up now and again. Can't complain. Any local match is better than Steam.

    I do the same, but folks around here are snob enough not to join in. It's very accessible: easy to pull out desperation moves, tons of unbalanced charas and very detailed, grim visuals contrasting with some of the funniest of the series. 2k is a serious attempt to abandon the integrity of the King of Fighters Tournament, so let's not forget our sense of humor.

    I am the lone vote for 99. I don't know why it's my favourite, but it's the one I go back to more than any other.

    I still love '96 above all others. Probably nostalgia has a lot to do with it, but I love the soundtrack/graphics/locations/story and, of course, character roster. Boss team FTW.
    97 & 98 would come after.

    It was split between 97 and 98. I feel 97 was the begining of a better generation of fighter but 98 refined. The series did get better as time progressed.

    '98.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.
