Panzer Kick Boxing - Amiga,

brilliant game where you could pick ALL your moves and assign them to the joystick.

Another vote for Ballz here. Already mentioned as well, but I'm always surprised by how few non-hardcore gamers there are that have heard of Rival Schools. Probably my favourite game on the PS1.

Virtua Fighting Animation (MS/GG) is one that rarely gets a mention as well.

Who can explain why practically all Japanese video games with playable black characters seem to always where sunglasses? Or their face is obscured somehow.

After all the years Eddy Gordo has been around, this is the first official looking picture I've seen of him, facing the camera!

It came free with my CD32, as was the reason why I nearly took my CD32 back for a refund :shock: :lol:
Luckily, when I got to the shop, they had loads of good CD32 games.

I have Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha on PSX. I actually quite like it, it's a good game.

Legend on the Snes is a good game if a little on the slow side but with great graphics, cool soundtrack and good arcade style action.

Sorry about that, bud! As fighting games are my favorite video game genre, I guess I got a little carried away. :oops:

Did everybody check out those two links to videos ala Eddy Gordo and Dhalsim in my previous posts?
