is just about the best fighting game
series ever. All arcade
games, they are done by SNK
for the NeoGeo
(of course, that platform is being phased out soon), and port
ed to the PSX
. The series is set apart by being based upon a team
, exceptional art
, tons of moves
and desperation move
s, a power meter
system, and lots of characters
. (of course, gameplay
is a small factor for it being popular
The most notable first impression from a King of Fighters game is the sheer amount of characters to choose from. These characters are partially culled from previous games (like the Fatal Fury series) and partially brand new.
Oh, also, there are a few doujinshi series based on KoF, such as Athena and Friends and Yuri and Friends.
