These are the five games in my collection currently that I think makes me cool. This was posted in response to the new Pick 5 feature on Gamespot.
1. Street Fighter II: Champion Edition (PCE)
That’s right, the TurboGrafx version, on HuCard at that, not even on CD like Fighting Street! Sure, the voices don’t sound all that great and the visuals pale in comparison to the SNES version, but for a system that isn’t even true 16-bit, it plays really well and looks good for a title on this system using the HuCard format.
2. Tobal 2 (PS)
A fighting game series by Square? WTF? Yeah, I enjoyed Tobal No. 1 for more than just the Final Fantasy VII demo that came with it that I was bummed when its sequel wasn’t being released outside Japan. All of the rave reviews it was getting in magazines at the time made me want it even more.
3. X-Men vs. Street Fighter (SAT)
Probably one of the best arcade to console ports ever thanks to the 4MB RAM cart required to play this great game. You can stick with your butchered PS1 versions, I’ll play the one all of the cool people play.
4. Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (PS2)
I selected this one because it is probably the most valuable title in my collection at the moment. Valued at about $75 on the secondary market.
5. Akumajo Dracula X: Gekka no Yasokyoku (PS)
All of the cool people know this better as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. They also know that this version has way better box art than that lame North American version. Konami needs to make more 2D Castlevanias for consoles and not just portables since the 3D ones are so boring.
