Hi everyone, it's that time of the month again :)

This month I'd like to know what your favourite NEO GEO game (AES or MVS) is.

Samurai Shodown 2... played that for god knows how many hours during university time and never got bored of it (yeah one of my flatmates was well off enough to have his own Neo Geo console!).

My favourite game was Super Sidekicks 3. The long range shot mechanism was a lot of fun and you felt like a million quid when you scored one. I also loved the huge sprites and bright graphics, which made my Commodore 64 seem a little inferior.

Add to that that you could play as Wales, meant I loved it.

Aero Fighters 2 for me! What other game allows you to control a jet fighter plane with a dolphin as a pilot? :)

I would probably struggle to name more than 3 or 4 NEO GEO games, even though I have read all the SNK articles in RG.

Metal Slug! I fell in love with the chunky graphics, solid animation and smooth playability the moment I saw it years ago. And it does cartoon violence so much better than Itchy and Scratchy.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

The King of Fighters 98 without a shadow of a doubt. 30+ diverse characters to select from, an amazing soundtrack that takes classic tracks from past games and one hell of a hard boss seal the deal for me! Oh, and it plays well to.

Its difficult to seperate the retrogaming fanboy in me, from the games I've actually experienced. The conformant fanboy is adamant that its metal slug, but if I'm honest I've had more play and dare I say it more fun out of Neo Turf Masters.

So Neo Turf Masters then.

Magician Lord - Must have spent a good few hundred quid when I was young playing that in a dodgy arcade in Wigan!
