    Spy Hunter was the first game I was addicted to.

    Street Fighter II brought me back to gaming in college.

    A Link to the Past blew my mind with what 16-bit could do.

    Advance Wars taught me the joy of handheld gaming and introduced me to turn-based strategy.Edited 3 times. Last edited 10 hours ago by Unknown

    Awakening was okay. I do have a love/hate relationship with it. Sure, it was a good game but it also sealed the fate of Advance Wars which is my preferred strategy series from IS, despite AW having the best waifu. If one would dare call Sami a waifu to her face, which no one would.

    Fire Emblem is one of those series that lost a lot of charm in the transition from 2D to 3D graphics. The attacks in the GBA games had such dynamic attack animations, specifically the pegasus knights.

    I really wanted to love Persona 5. It was beautiful and cool but it just didn't click. It didn't leave me as cold as P4 but it didn't grab my like P3. I think I'm a big fan of Persona 3 and not the series.

    Ocarina of Time is my main go-to. It is the best 3D Zelda game. I recently started a new game and plan to spend more time searching for secrets rather than tearing through the game.

    Advance Wars is runner up. It's my favorite strategy game and has a ton of stages to play.

    I recently picked up Splatoon 2 and am utterly addicted. I always loved the aesthetic but was afraid it would make me motion sick. Luckily, it didn't! I also plan to play Opus: Rocket of Whispers and maybe some Steamworld Heist.

    I cannot wait for this. I honestly expected it to be released earlier in the month so it isn't competing with the Mega Man Collection. Ah, well. I'm getting it on Switch. I'm not sure how good Ultra SFIV is as a pre-order bonus. I would imagine most people getting this collection already own Ultra SFIV.
    @RushDawg James Chen and Justin Wong have both verified training and versus modes vie Capcom reps at Final Round this past weekend.

    @kidgorilla I've always felt air blocking blocking pushed the Alpha series to be more offensive thanks to safer jumping options. I don't like games that place to much emphasis on defense. Ultra SFII does an amazing job of balancing offense and defense. Throw breaks work really well in that game.

    @kidgorilla It's always interesting to discuss these things! I love to watch 3S but prefer to play Super Turbo or Alpha 2.

    @kidgorilla I wish I could love Third Strike. I've tried. It just feels like that's where SF started to go wrong for me - it was slower than previous games and the two button throws kill the tick throw game. It's also more defensive then earlier SF games. I like my fighting games to be fast and hard-hitting.

    I'm so ready! I loved the original and was honestly underwhelmed by the second. The third game looked good but I never did play it.
