Does King of Fighters suck?
#1  April 13, 2009, 05:06:10 am
I have played and owned all kinds of fighting games like Tekken, Guilty Gear XX, Street Fighter, Samurai Showdown, Dead or Alive, Super Smash Bros and many, many others. I even own Ninja Masters on the Neo Geo. The only game I haven't played is King of Fighters. I heard it was a rip off of Street Fighter with Ryu ripoff named Ryo and all the male characters look like something from a Abercrombie magazine. I know I shouldn't take these opinions seriously but before I play a KoF character on MUGEN, tell me what you think.


(side note; which creator makes the best KoF characters and where can I get them. Please note that Im not requesting, im just curious, thats all.) --;

KOF sucks. Just play CvS2 if you wanna play with SNK characters.

BTW the best KOF creators are Beppu, Ahuron, and MDK.

I like this thread.
It so funny.


I for one prefer hardcore games with advanced technical gameplay like Mortal Kombat.

But yeah, it only features a couple of shotos and very few headswaps, so it's no fun at all.
Innovative character designs scare me.

Just try it, download some char from here, test it, play it, feel it, fall in love with it, and so on, and so on, and so on....
in my opinion: it's suits my taste.

Some one did tell me about KoF at first it's a rip off of Street Fighter. they see SF make it big time so they start to do some thing similar (too similar)

when the time past by and they start to have they own style.

but yeah the art work it not what most people would like.

so they go for the cute girls :P they put many hot one in they game just to get some fan  --;

If it not for those girls KoF won't making it this far with they gameplay alone  :-\

KOF sucks because:
- designers always fuck with the fighters moves. imo its always never for the better
- too slow
- kof xi's shion and that other boss
- tired sprite design (but that won't be the issue with kof xii)

Other than that it's cool. Reiterating again

You know, I liked Pit Fighter as a kid...

Anyway, KoF... I never played it. I've never actually played any SNK game, aside from a SNES rom of something... I don't remember the game title.

Nah, it keeps them (somewhat) fresh, and every now and then it's for the better and you get such cool things as "new" Kyo.  The experimental moves don't stick around if they fail anyway, I think.
Downside is how I keep forgetting which moves a char has in a particular version. >_<

- too slow
...if you play it like Street Fighter.  It's actually pretty fast.

Shion kicks ass, though I can never remember whether it's a he or a she. :S

- tired sprite design (but that won't be the issue with kof xii)
I guess always cancels never and vice versa, so I agree it's for the better, but sometimes it's 50% 50% like 2k lin chain move > 2k1 sucky hand, it could have been better if the poison chain and normal grabs remained to be with the rdp+P moves and new command move + new sdm(I missed the poison one though), also I can't stand what kind of faggotry cursed king over the years etc...

been playing too much mvc? best physics aren't what I'd call slow, also if you wanted to play faster you could

dunno if you mean by that that those bosses are a bitch but they're great designs

sprite style that still has a lot to give, try doing wonders with that "few" pixels while not fucking up, although big sprites need more time they are easier to work with(if you see what I mean, if you don't agree then you're not), small sprites will give you a hard time trying to achieve what result you had in mind, they are the bigger challenge


I'd rather complain about the unreasonable amounts of priorities and invincibilities in most bosses combined with the acceptable high damage and defense

The only reason I posted this thread was out of curiousity about whether KoF was a good game or not. Im suprised at Wild Tengu's reply, saying that the series sucked yet he has Ryo as his avatar. Plus, I know that if I play KoF on MUGEN, I may get the wrong experience of what a TRUE KoF game is like. I guess I should wait until KoF 12 comes out... Btw, who is the main character of KoF anyways? Is it Kyo, Terry, Iori, Rock, Andy or something?

KoF main characters : Terry (Fatal Fury), Ryo (Art of Fighting), Kyo (KoF '94-'97), K' (KoF '99-'01) and ugh... ash (KoF '03-now)

Play KoF XI or 2002 Unlimited Match if you've got a PS2, and if you don't, play KoF 2000 on an emulator as an introduction to the series.

Try it, opinions are subjective and everyone tells a different story.

kof '98 is not beginner friendly, kof 2000 is usually regarded as the first kof to play.

My opinion: Better than street fighter but not as easy to get to. Get neorage and try out a few of them. My faves are 97 98 02 and XI. Why do I like it better?
Well, first off its fast, if the game is playing slow its cuz you and or the competition is slow.
Larger variety in terms of cast and move types and design.
HUGE CAST, means I never get bored of it. Hell I still haven't used every char.
Also the game system nerfs the importance of projectiles since you can glide past them. Which means your not forced to block or jump.
It's honestly the deepest most technical 2D fighter from the old days (not always a good thing).
Even after SFIII and IV I still think the games looks better in terms of design (I LOVE SFIV and III)
