Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Dial-a-combos, some arena transitions when you uppercut the enemy in some places, run button and a lot of characters to choose.

KoF is my favorite fighting game series and this is my favorite one with its sleek moves, fun counter-grapple, neat 3 people battles, dodges and specials. The roster is immense and memorable, music tracks are awesome. The locales are exotic and evocative and change from round to round and your teamates appear there and have reactions.... All around great. Oh, and it plays handsomely.

Garou: Mark of the Wolves - PlayStation 2
It has a great cast, great graphics and sound both art-wise and technical-wise. It also features a parrying system that's much better than the excessively technical implementation in SFIII and a system where some options are opened to you when your life is at a point of the bar of your choosing.

Perhaps it's nostalgia goggles. I don't know, but I really like this version of this game.

The strikers system is still imperfect, this being its first implementation, but the graphics got better.

The Last Blade 2 - Arcade
So deep, technical, tactical... a bit too much for me, even. It definitely caters more to pro players. Still, the entrybarrier it's not as steep as it usually is with technical fighters (*cof* Street Fighter III *cof* Guilty Gear *cof*). I also think the cast is rather bland.

Love the roster and the graphics. The sequel uses too much 3D for my tastes.

I'm not much of a fan of planes, and that's why you won't see many Fatal Fury games here.

Much better implementation of strikers. Arenas are a bit bland, though.

Samurai Shodown - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Nice theme, great characters, and the Strenght Duel (don't know the official name) is an interesting idea, as is losing your weapon. And speaking of this, it was a novel idea at the time a 2D fighting game based around white weapons.

Exremely complex. But it has not only dashes, also air dashes, air combos, special defenses of all kinds and also defense-breaks. Steep learning curve. Also, extreme emphasis on combos makes the game very repetitive.

Mortal Kombat - PlayStation 3
It was really, objectively, the best MK to date.

It's classic SFII, but with a Super bar. The best iteration (and last iteration) of the classic. Vanilla SF's cast is bland to me, but it gets away with it for being the first of its kind. Still, every time I see a Ryu-clone with a twist, as almost all fighting games have, I always prefer the clone.

Promising

I need to play 'em more to judge.
Love that this is a "Dream Match" game with 99's graphics style and good arenas. And I also like the introduction of Super Movie Portrait Attacks. It looks sleek and awesome.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure - PlayStation
I like how flashy the visuals are, and how eccentric yet charming it all is, and the use of guardian spirits is a neat piece of uniqueness.

King Of Fighters XI, The - PlayStation 2
A tag team KoF? Ok, I'm down to trying it, especially if it is an evolution of 2003 and plays better than that. It also definitely looks better than that. The addition of MoW characters in 2003 was neat, giving a sense of progression to the series, and it's nice seeing this continuing here.

The King of Fighters XIII - PlayStation 3
How can I as a fan of KoF not want this game? It looks stunning, although definitely lacking in visual content (team partners in scenario background, differences in the arenas from round to round), due to how SNK struggled to port itself to HD, to the point of deciding for going entirely 3D with KoFXIV. The engine also looks fast, furious and faithful to how a KoF should play (not too combo-based). And the tutorial mode seems awesome.
XIV seems to play well but doesn't look as good.

Only because I'm interested in the approach to storytelling, with visual novel story pieces with choices and branching paths. The fighting system seems good too, as do the graphics.

The graphics of the 2nd Battle Assault seem too 3D-ish to me, so I'm more interested in this one.

I love 2D fighting games. I also suck at them. Nevertheless, I like their dashing pixel art and how modern they can feel.

Favorite things: Throws, throw-escaping, air dashes, air defense, parrying, dashes, dodges, flashy but fast super moves, stage transitions, portrait super moves. And also: big rosters, stylish sleek characters, flashy sleek unique moves, character interactions, good soundtracks, awesome 2D animation, interesting arenas.
