I'd recommend the King of Fighters series, specifically versions 1994, '95, '99, '00, XIII and XIV. '94 and '95 are classic and they come with heavy battle damage per hit. These are harder games in the franchise. 99 is a more well rounded game with the best game mechanics imo. '00 changed a bit to cater to more combos and lastly, XIII and XIV have modern game mechanics with bigger (infinite) combos/ attacks.Ruhe Strom said:so any fighting game aficionados out there with some recommendations?
