SB Recommends Neo Geo Games
SNK's powerful-for-1990 arcade platform with a mostly identical, ridiculously expensive home counterpart, and a later CD-based version with games that took approximately seven lunar cycles to load anything. Despite bankruptcy and the soiling of several key franchises by some hack Korean developers, the Neo retained official support for a staggering 14 years. Home to more fighting games than you can shake a QCF + P at.
The King of Fighters '98: The Slugfest (also on: PS, PS2, PSN, Wii VC, XBLA)
Sniper Honeyviper: The definitive KOF
. I still prefer '97
Metal Slug X (Also on: PS, PS2, PSP, Wii, Wii VC)
is a remixed version of 2
and is my favorite Metal Slug
. My problem with 3
(popular favorite) is the enemies eventually take too much damage and it just gets too hard to stay alive.
Felix: Objectively it's probably the best game in the series. I have a lot of affection for the original because I can 1cc it, but this game has more varied level design and is better balanced for co-op. As Rudie said, 3 gets to be a bit much, even though it is grandiose and spectacular.
