I like the one that looks like a house, in that Dreamcast game where the characters looked like houses and big robots and tanks and... er, stuff!!!

I'm not into fighters very much. Can you tell?

I played Street Fighter 2 all the time for years (til my poor SNES died) ,
Chun-Li was the only character for me.
She was lightining quick in my eyes and the other characters were just to cumbersome and slow.
I know others will disagree with me on that!

Plus she did the Spinning Star Kick. The woman defies gravity!!!!

Why? Cos I was being a smart arse and acting as if I was too cool for MK. ;)

In the arcades I used to play with Raiden whenever I played as I knew all his moves and fatality. He was a pretty cool character.

I never really liked Mortal Kombat either, but on the few occasions I have played it, I've used Liu Kang. :|
