I always fancied traveling across Europe. But the car is in the shop and my arcade monitor is broken, too :problem:

2100km one way for a round of Virtua Fighter sounds boss though 8-)

I'm very curious about something. What are the reasons why some of you prefer SF2 Champion Edition over other versions of SF2? :)

These are the games I have played the most, so my list is purely based on nostalgia:

Double Dragon
Final Fight
Street Fighter 2 World Warrior
Captain Commando
Vendetta
Samurai Shodown
Sunset Riders
TMNT
Mexico 86
World Cup Tehkan
Wonderboy
Golden Axe

I don't have 20 favourites, back then you had had to choose one game, stick to it, learn how to destroy it completely, I didn't have the time, or the money... to do the same with 20 games.

The End.
