Guile

Post by timewarpgamer » Tue Jun 17, 2008 11:15 pm

Surprise, surprise, I'm going old-school on this one. You really had to be there in the arcade when Street Fighter II was first released to appreciate this one. On top of his edgy cool look, rumors were rampant about Guile's special moves (largely due to some bugs in the arcade machine that allowed Guile to do a "freeze pose" and use "handcuffs"). I remember people even claiming that Guile could pull out a gun if you entered the right combination of moves.

I think I'm a bit of a Nightmare from Soul Calibur fan at the moment, it's great killing all those cheesy online cheating fighters with him.

Law, from the original Tekken. Fantastic-looking game when it came out, and he had such a cool move, running up the opponent and doing a backflipping-kick off their chest.

Hard to answer, Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken series or Akuma from Street Fighter.

Faust from Guilty Gear for me. Giant scalpel? Paper bag over his head? Works for me!

Still good old Ryu (Street Fighter) for me. The era of mystery around him is what attracts so many fans I think. He really doesn't care about trophies or championship titles, he just wants to fight worthy adversaries and train to get stronger as he goes along.

Another favorite would be Makoto (SFIII and soon SSFIV). Looks like a cute little schoolgirl in karate class, but doesn't take censored from nobody.

Always on the look-out for fighting games!
Have any stray ones laying about? Let me know and we'll try to give them a cosy new home.

Soul Calibur's Isabella "Ivy" Valentine for her excellent fighting statistics and, er, assets.
