It might end up with these undiscovered, but very good ones. Are they all SFII clones? You decide:Quite a great article there! I certainly didn't mean to say all fighting games in the 90s were ugly SF2 clones. Just that I remember going to the arcade and seeing a ton of those; there was a huge amount of crappy SF2 wannabees, which didn't actually add a lot to the gameplay but were just part of the era. Maybe the same thing is happening here.
They are more than just imitators, they're innovators. The Street Fighter series are, too. They feature some ideas that are unique and some ideas that have been done before in Konami's Yie Ar Kung-Fu and these other pre-SFII fighting games.
When Video System created Tao Taido, they focused on unique ideas more than good gameplay, but it didn't become successful enough.
Fighter's History is the opposite of Tao Taido. While it doesn't feature many unique ideas other than the "weak point system", its gameplay made it become successful enough to not only be sued by Capcom, but to also have some sequels.
My Mugen Wish List would include protagonists, mascots and other iconic characters with everything they have brought straight from their source with little or no editing.
