CONSOLE BATTLE Q8 PC ENGINE VS NEO GEO

Post by RodimusPrime » Fri Apr 14, 2017 8:36 am

Bored and stuck at work a lot for the next few weeks so fancied doing something long term on here for a bit of fun.

picked out 32 consoles and pitting them against each other in a knockout round. First up is 16 Qualifying rounds, will run this till 21/04/2017 and then the winners will be on to the next stage.

PC ENGINE VS NEO GEO

on the surface a bit of a mismatch in terms of power, but I feel the PC engine library can hold its own. In fact I give the slight nod to the PC engine on this one.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

I suppose we might have a few millionaires here, who could actually afford a Neo Geo. Either that, or they had a very understanding bank manager. :lol: :lol:

No doubting the sheer power of the neo geo. But it's stupidly expensive, PCE by a massive margin for me. A fantastic console.

Both fantastic machines for their time. I didn't have either of them. Even though I don't like 2D fighters, I still went for the Neo Geo because of the Metal Slug games and some of the other shooters that I particularly like these days.

I love the Neo Geo and the PC Engine! It's an almost impossible choice to make for me.

Flipping a coin...

Neo Geo wins. :lol:

got both, Neo geo has less games overall but the quality of whats there is awesome.

PC engine has some nice stuff, some good exclusives and conversions (lots of IREM games), but I can get most of the pce games i'm interested in on the megadrive too.

neo geo for me.

Not a fair contest hardware wise, but I would rather have a PC Engine for the games.

Well its not just about hardware. its about personal preferences, what you like best, and like you said sometimes the technically inferior machine can win by library. Like the PC engine here so far. Whick I also agree with you about.

This result is rigged :P

PCE is king, no amount of votes can change that fact.
