    I'm one of the lone MS4 fans too. It just seemed cool when I got it.

    Rage of the Dragons
    Matrimelee,
    KOF2003
    SSVS
    Metal Slug 4

    Those would probably be my top 5 today but at the time of their release they were all pretty cool considering SNK was thought dead.

    KoF 2k2 - plays incredibly well even if the backgrounds and UI are terribad. It's like the anti-2000.
    RotD - As others have mentioned, it's not anything particularly special but it has a workman-like quality to it and isn't just a boring asset rip. It's better than 90% of the golden-age Neo fighters.
    Samurai V Special - Kinda like 2k2... it's largely an asset rip but it plays really well and is a great culmination of the series (we'll just ignore that 6/Tenkaichi exists)

    2003 is one of my favorite KOF games. Ties with 95 as my favorite. Matrimelee is fire too, had a lot of fun on that one.

    Slug 4 is a real weak entry, like a rom hack, but I like it. I’ll admit it’s trash overall though.

    Looking to buy complete very good and excellent condition genuine/authentic AES games of the titles listed below. If anyone is selling them please send me a PM.
    No NGF markings, Game-dude void stickers or Sun-fade please. I want clean carts but insertion marks are ok.
    NONE at this moment.

    I enjoyed KOF2003.
    And I am probably in a minority but SamSho V was great imo. Ya SSVS was better balanced but SSV had a better atmosphere and presentation to it imo.

    The MS5 soundtrack is largely just noise. No melody, no nuance, no style, no rhythm, just harsh noise. I'm sure death metal is alright in its home environment on CD or vinyl, but not on Neo Geo PCM. MS5 doesn't hold a candle to the Nazca Metal Slugs.

    Metal Slug 4 isn't anywhere near as bad as people say it is. It has a wide selection of weapons and vehicles, the levels are alright, music is good. It's not outstanding by any means, but calling it a bad Metal Slug is pretty extreme. I'd sooner call Metal Slug 5 bad if just for the awful music.

    You must be new here. Good thing I won't get to MS4 until the end of my video series. I'll probably lose all my subs.

    I recently acquired Slug 5. Just want to say it has the worst soundtrack in the whole series IMO.

    MS4 is not that bad. I like its simplicity.

    There is no bad Slug in my opinion. Mega just had some huge shoes to fill, and creating something to best Metal Slug 3... Almost impossible.

    I'd like to spend some more time with Sengoku 3, see if it really is as vapid as people say it is. I've tried to like Metal Slug 5, the horrible soundtrack ruins the experience for me.
    Yes to all of the above but I could personally die happy w/o playing MS5 again.....

    Matrimelee: It's completely bonkers and gives zero fucks about it...and it's a fun fighter.
    Nightmare in the Dark: I absolutely love this game, I wish I owned a MVS copy but they are so rare, or ebay$$$ prices.
    Samurai Showdown V Special: I've always loved the SS and Last Blade games, I prefer swords to the modern KOF fighters anyways so it has to be on the list.

    SVC is cool that it exists, but compared to Garou it just feels so unpolished and janky.

    KOF 2002 is the only game I'd bother with there. KOF 02 is underrated IMO.

    It's not underrated. It was hailed as the '98 of its time.

    01 is the real underrated KOF, even though itís ugly as sin like many/most of the post-bankruptcy titles.

    That said 94-96 is peak KOF

    Nightmare in the Dark
    Zupapa!
    Sengoku 3
    King of Fighters 2001
    Metal Slug 4
    Rage of the Dragons
    King of Fighters 2002
    Matrimelee
    SVC Chaos
    Samurai Shodown 5
    Metal Slug 5
    King of Fighters 2003
    Pochi & Nyaa
    Samurai Shodown V Special

    For me, my true favorite is Samurai Shodown V Special, which is my favorite fighting game actually. That, followed by Pochi & Nyaa and Zupapa!.
    I enjoy slug 4 and 5 alot actually and kof 2k1.

    Yes it's one of the worst Slug games but that doesn't make it bad. Its pretty good fun.

    I also like Matrimelee. Love the idea of the music perfomers in the background too

    KOF2002 also an amazing game but just wish it was slightly less grey-looking

    It's really difficult to pick a favorite among the post-bankruptcy era, as they were all very solid for the most part. Though if I had to pick one, I would say SVC Chaos. Their is just something fascinating about seeing and playing with Capcom fighters, using the KOF artstyle and controls. Plus, Zero is in the game. Albeit the MegaMan Zero version, and not the awesome MegaMan X version.
