Street Fighter 2


This.


Definitely Street Fighter 2. I think the only reason more people haven't said so is because they haven't played the original...2 is so far ahead they're barely the same series.

I forgot about SFII!

Back in '91 it was like looking into a rabbit hole. To quote the "Matrix"
I couldn't believe the amount of special moves and strategy. I was amazed by high low combos and think every main sequel brought something new to the table.

SF Alpha: Alpha counters were my favorite b/c they were the same for every character, too bad you lost you meter. The alpha combos were perfected in SFA3 were a majority of the characters had 3 and you could activate your meter simply if you chose to.

VS series: ultimate tribute to comic fans. I really didn't' play it a lot until DREAMCAST b/c EGM said it was so watered down on PS. All in all, it was a great party game, too bad I had to let my little bro use the arcade stick.

EX alpha series: really slow IMO. Is there great strategy there? I'd like to play it again someday if it's worth it? I saw it for the PS2 and was glad I bought a DReamcast. The class of characters.. where did they get Cracker Jack and D Dark?

SFIII: the first time I saw it was in an arcade in summer of '97. Yes, that long ago! I didn't buy it day 1 b/d EGM said "..3rd strike" would inevitable be released, Why buy an inferior game? The Oxygen system is my favorite, but a whole new cast except for Ryu and Ken in the original release made me overwhelmed with new character to button mash.

SFIV: oline play

Haha I can be a jackass sometimes man, don't take it personally. I love everyone.

A better question would've been: which games have sequels that aren't as good as the original?

Because of technology and budgets, most sequels turn out better than the originals. Of course, there are plenty of exceptions.

the majority of this board would suggest "Perfect Dark Zero" and "Devil May Cry 2" are the 2 most hated sequels.
But being an XBOX 360 board, I'm hard pressed to find a lot of examples because, as mentioned, bigger budgets, more testing by developers, consumer communities rather than just word of mouth. I think bad games may be in the past as long as developers dont' get greedy or release too many movie tie ins and holiday rushed released dates.

Looking at my collection the only real dissapointment I have for the 360 is an early game: "Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2". Good formula, but bad execution IMO.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I've always liked this game more than Sonic 2.

I felt Super Mario Galaxy was a better game than Sunshine, mostly because it wasn't so dang frustrating.
Your favorite game will always be underrated.
