I remember playing Virtua Fighter on Funky's PC at university. It was kinda slow, kinda clumsy but at the same time great fun! Tekken just blew that out of the water though. What a game...

I haven't played any of the new generation of fighters really. Tekken 3 is basically just Tekken. I think when I get my new PS2 I'll have to get Dead or Alive 2.

Although it sucks that you already have it... is it like Tekken in that someone who doesn't play much can still give someone who knows all the moves a game?

I liked the little green guy who kicked the heads across the screen and dragged the losers body away.

it really does have it all. But I think we all wished in our hearts that you could play all three players. My god that would be heaven.

Absolutely, we may only have had 2 joystick ports but surely someone could have played on keys?
