    In my opinion:

    KOF96 best overall game -> first of the "modern" style KOFs
    KOF97 best storyline -> I love Orochi team and the tv show presentation
    KOF98 best gameplay -> vsmode is gold

    None of them (KOF) are bad, maybe 2k3

    Why do not build a KOF collection or begin in order by KOF94 at a moderate price? (about 40$)

    The SNKP KOFs are pretty bad. 2001 feels like a Mugen game. But then I tend to think all SNKP games suck.

    KOF97 is one of the best balanced games besides of 98. Anyway nobody needs a limited run game which is 20 years old. Better invest your money in the original cartridge or CD

    If they were going to go with this approach, releasing volumed compilation sets of the aca neogeo releases would have been a better option for new/modern neogeo fans. I imagine a set like that would have done especially well in physical format on the nintendo switch. Oh well.

    I think everyone actively posting in this thread agrees that this feels like a cash grab attempt.

    Completely agree. I was thinking about this myself, I'd totally go for physical volume sets from the ACA Neo-Geo releases. I just wish there was more love for physical on PC and not just consoles.

    To be honest KOF '97 had it's charm; red Orochi battle, Bali, Monaco, and last boss stage. Music and then lack thereof; liked the Akira-esque Bali theme, Monaco lo-fi guitar.. shitty character portraits that massively improved in later entries. Definitely a compilation of KOF games would appeal more. 1 random okay kof game on a disc? Oh Simple Jack.

    Nice custom status. Do you get that when you brag about not supporting the developers and publishers that made the platform of the site on which you're posting possible? People who buy crap like this are idiots, but they're still well above your ilk.

    This instead of just a single release for kof97.Hamster really has been cranking out those aca neo-geo releases id rather have just a compilation.This definitely screams a cash grab on snk&lrg part.

    I'm sure about people who get care about physical releases are in the age 35+ & 40some, young kids don't care about having games in their shelves, they just want to play them.
    About kof97 release, I'm not with a game who were released 22 years ago who is going to offer nothing new right now.

    I have more expectation with the new Samurai Shodown and KOF XV.

    Fun fact: SNK mashed up two traditional Balinese sounds for that stage, the kecak chant and music that accompanies the Legong dance. More info here, in post 7: http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showth...music-in-KoF97

    Thank you for reposting that thread, LS! The attention to detail that SNK poured into their titles was amazing. Even though most don’t care for the direction that kof97 took in terms of theming and music, it really shows how much thought and research really went into the global tournament theme of the final chapter of the kof orochi saga.

    Thanks LoneSage, I missed that thread. It was so cool to see details like that and that was definitely the first stage that comes to mind when I think of 97.

    it seems that KOF97 wasn´t the best decision for LRG. Still over 20% of inventory left after 4 days.

    but in comparison to "the good old stuff" it wasn´t good. WTF is the KING OF DINOSAURS doing there or KUKRI ? That reminds me more of Tekken or Battle Arena Toshinden, but not KOF

    Makes me happy to hear. I was an early supporter of LRG from their very first PS4 release through the end of 2017, but after the (often crappy) games kept coming week after week after week, the novelty faded and their true goals became apparent. And no, it's not preserving games in physical format. If that were truly the case, they would leave Windjammers, Wonder Boy, Night Trap, KoF '97, etc. alone since they already fucking have physical releases!
