    I love story based games that include great characters, and adventure or action or both. The Great Nash loves nothing more than playing Red Dead Redemption 2 whilst eating a Tyson Fury ice pop. Nash out.

      Built my own 4-player arcade machine last year. It plays full MAME set plus pretty much all emulators up through PS3. Around 70K games in all from the late 70's to early 2010's. I honestly built it to play one specific game, Gyruss, which I played at the local pizza parlor during my entire childhood. It still holds up as a super fun shooter with great music. Also love to play fighting games like Street Fighter (dozens of variants), Virtua Fighter, Dead On Arrival (DOA) and Soul Calibur. Fighting games are just so much more fun on an arcade cabinet. Sports game favorites include NBA Jam (fun in 4 player), Punch Out and several old school soccer games like Back Street Soccer. Adventure game faves include Super Mario series, Ghosts and Goblins, Ghouls and Ghosts.

        Street fighter 3 3rd strike, so so underrated

        People always go on about SF2 and it was a good game at the time, SF3 was a massive upgrade in every regard but was overshadowed by polygon fighters at the time such as Tekken 1

        Its funny because Tekken 1 looks like dog **** now where as SF3 still looks fantastic.

                They should have just pulled the trigger and released SF3 sooner instead of milking SF2 and coming out with like over 50 variations of it, there was champion, hyper, super, super turbo, etc.

                And X-Men vs. Capcom came out before Street Fighter 3, so that game already set the course for the future of the Street Fighter franchise. When Marvel vs. Capcom came out in 2000, people completely overlooked SF3 which was only out for a few years by that point. Such a shame because SF3 really was a damn good game.

                  Ken or Ryu in SF and Scorpion or Sub Zero in Mortal Kombat. At one time I was really, really good at SF

                    Respect. I could only ever win as Blanka against the computer or sometimes E. Honda because of his grappling skills. Mortal Kombat I used Sub Zero because it was easiest to beat Goro with him using his freeze attack, once I learned how to do it and could use it on Shang Tsung or jump kicks.

                      I would use M. Bison in SF too, at least in the ones where the bosses were playable.
