I've never been a fan of the the new street fighter 4 and mortal combat 9 look with 3D polygon characters on a 2D plane. I hated the art design of street fighter 4, and I've never wanted to play anything past Guilty Gear X, Capcom vs. SNK 2 ,or MVC 2 but this is hands down the best fighting game I've seen or played in the past decade. Thank you Atlus! P.S. Note to Capcom!!! Keep 2D fighting games 2D "anime-style!" Quiet trying to cater to us stupid americans. We love Japan, so stay Japanese! I'm american so I can say that.
KoF has always been, and will always be the best fighting game ever, whether its graphics or gameplay.
