yes I know I am wrong but I'll still fight my position
Picking hills to die on seems to be a popular click bait technique these days.
LOL I think people missed where I said “I know I am wrong but”It could be labeled a guilty pleasure game, but I don’t think Matrimelee quite has the polish needed to be considered the best Neo Geo game. It doesn’t do anything more impressive or better than Garou Mark of the Wolves from 4 years earlier. There’s more characters in Matrimelee for sure, but more isn’t always better.
At least people know what I like LOLI knew this was a bacon thread just by the title...
Matrimelee is alright, fun for a few rounds every now and again and a nice break from the other fighters of the time. It's a broken ass hot mess though but at least it's not as lazy as ROTD.
Not bothering to change Garou to Fatal Fury also feels lazy, like they couldn’t be bothered to fully localize it for western markets.
