[QUOTE] This idea popped in my head just now and I thought I should just go with it. I'm sure everyone in here has played a plethora of different fighting games from way back. And I'm sure everyone has some great memories about them as well. So let's talk about them! We'll pick one fighting game per week and talk just about that one gem of a game. The more personal we can get the better. Did you become a fan of a certain character because of particular game? Or did you begin to hate some character for some reason in that game? Does a song in it bring back memories of good old times? Did you love the game even though you only had access to a sub-par console port? Or maybe you just regret selling it to buy another game you wish you had never bought. Let's share these stories. Hey c'mon! [b]And now beings the epic drama[/b] [i]Ultra Deadly Attacks meet the Hidden Power. This is the long-awaited Real Bout![/i] Let's start off by talking about REAL BOUT GAROU DENSETSU. RBGD is a game I own for three different consoles for some reason. I was so into the game at one point (must've been in 2012) that my girlfriend back then made custom wrapping paper from Shinkiro's art to wrap my birthday present in.

For me RBGD is one of those games that I can enjoy even if I'm playing it against the CPU. G [/URL][/b][/s][/i][color=660000]-- Message too long, Autoquote has been Snipped --[/color][/QUOTE] My experience with RBGD started at Electronic Boutique. Well, not playing experience but let me explain. So at the time when stores like Electronic Boutique and Gamestop(or was it called another name? I forgot) was selling import games, especially Sega Saturn games, they had RBGD on display. Pandoras Cube and Starland did not have the game from what I remembered. I would always browse and look deep into the Saturn games they had for sell. RBGD stood out to me as a game that had a badass covert art on its package. It looks so sick and vicious, I fell in love. I would always just stare at it and look into the case more like if I knew how to read Japanese when I really could not. I mean this game was literally in every EB store(and that other video game store) I came across in multiple states I traveled to. My mind was like "I really need to buy this game, or set of both, soon!" During those times I was always searching and buying import Saturn games on eBay. I finally got my hands on RB2 for a steal. However, the guy sent me one with no manual. I did not say anything until i tried the game out as much as I could. Sad to say, I was kind of disappointed with the game. Not that it was a bad game, I just wanted a little more or different at the time. After playing many fighting games during that time, especially KOF, I wanted more or expected more. The game had a good presentation and great characters but I felt like I could not use them more like I wanted to. It bugged me to that it used the exact songs(arranged) that KOF 97 used for those characters. So it did not felt new/different to me. It was my pickyness that I did not get to experience the game like how you describe LEGEN. I really wanted to play with the Gin brothers especially but did not felt right to me. It was great to experience the characters from the old FF days. The only FF game I played heavily with were FF1 and FF2 both for the Genesis. FF2 was the best ever and the music for the genesis was the best out of all of them including FF3. As a result, I spent about two weeks with RBGD and sent it back to the seller with no problem. He gave me a refund and that is when I finished my time with RBGD. All in all, I still believe the box art with Geese and his henchman(well they cut them off on this version) on the Sega Saturn is kick ass.
