For those who haven't seen RB1 in action here's a channel that has lots of great matches: [URL=https://www.youtube.com/user/rb1ukyo]rb1ukyo[/URL] [QUOTE] I haven't played very much Fatal Fury so I don't have anything to add in terms of personal anecdotes, but I'm very much enjoying reading everyone's comments. I think the last time I played RB1 was at your house LEGENOARYNINLIA! I should give the game another shot. Thanks for starting this thread, it's a fantastic idea! [/QUOTE] I'm sorry but I doubt you have been to my house, nobi! I live in Finland. I think you've confused me with someone else. But if you want to come over and play some games, sure why not! My personal anecdote about RB1: I'm a huge Yamazaki fan, but playing the game I got the feeling that the game needs to be experienced first hand as the Bogard bros and I had no choice but to reset the machine and pick Terry instead. I beat the game as him first, then as Andy and then as Joe. Only then I felt like I could play as the other characters. That's how riveting the setting of the game is. SNK's games really knew how to do boss fights right* and how to set up the athmosphere for the battle. *even if that is not the consensus on the internet --- [QUOTE] Real Bout 1 is one of the important landmarks in my long NeoGeo career; as it was a game that "pulled me away" of my regular fighting game menu and made me realize that appetizing with more frequence other dishes was not bad at all. I'll never forget the cool selection screen, specially since the arcade itself was dark and gave a similar feeling; making us rave more about the game. [/QUOTE] Hopefully this thread will encourage more people to try out different games and especially to dip deep into the history of fighting games and really relish the offerings. The character selection screen in RB1 is one of the best I've ever seen in a fighting game. And when you made a note about the less consistent art direction in the later game I was immediately reminded of RB2's character select screen which is the complete opposite of what RB1 has. It's very bland. RB1 has intense presentation and I love it. The whole game wrapped up in this mood that someone is going down and soon. [QUOTE] 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. [/QUOTE] I haven't really played those ports on real hardware, but I did check out the Mega Drive FM soundtracks on Youtube and enjoyed them a lot. Thanks for the tip! FM stuff always puts me in a good mood. Unless it's crap quality like the SSF2 port. Oh, and speaking of the Saturn port of RBGD. On my modded PAL machine I can do this trick with the Japanese version of the game: Start up the game normally, then hit ABC+Start to reset the game and suddenly the game changes to RBFF. The title screen and other graphics are in English! --- If someone hasn't heard this one yet but enjoyed the story in Garou Densetsu games; definitely check this out: [URL=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FuhHNxtrSEw]Kong Kuwata - The Sunset Sky Final[/URL] (AKA Geese singing to you from the heavens) [URL=http://videograpple.tumblr.com/post/142562641411/from-the-manual-of-the-hong-kong-edition-of-real]RIP Geese[/URL]
