your top 10 neo-geo game characters ever
ok after seeing the top 10 videogame characters and the worst i decided to make top 10 neo-geo game characters so i am waiting for the first reply and after that i will say my list ok i am waiting for replies
Nice idea Bojan. I have done my list i sometimes get the names wrong though.

1. Ralf
2. B Jennet
3. Terry
4. Sho
5. Mai
6. Marco (main Metal Slug guy) + from MOTW *cheats*
7. Akira? (Last Blade)
8. Big Bear (i love it when he goes YEAHHHHHH, or whatever noise he makes when he wins.
9. Kaede
10. Bub from Puzzle Bobble
Mini-Reviews of films I have just watched :
Mini-Reviews of ZX Spectrum games :
Ok Bojan here's my list in no particular order after giving it some thought. They are mainly from fighting games.

Shin Shishioh
Dio/Neo Dio
Alsion III
Karin (VFG)
YanYan (TSS)

One character that I've come to appreciate a lot more in recent times is Hayate. I'll admit the idea of mixing karate with boomerang throwing makes for a rather strange fighting style but I just love his overall design and he's got cool special moves. Including him in a KOF game was a good move and he doesn't seem out of place.

Although he didn't quite make it into my top 10 I think the legendary Satan Goat from Crossed Swords deserves a special mention too. Grin
1. Haohmaru (Samurai Shodown/Spirits)
2. Makoto Mizoguchi (Karnov's Revenge/Fighters History)
3. Load Ran/Sprites (Twinkle Star Sprites)
4. Marco Rossi (Metal Slug)
5. Ryo Sakazaki (Art of Fighting)
6. Hanzou (World Heroes)
7. Sho Hayate (Savage Reign/Kizuna Encounter)
8. Sasuke (Ninja Masters)
9. Prim Amor (Pochi and Nyaa)
10. Rugal Bernstein (King of Fighters)

Here goes with another one, will try to do one character per franchise just like last time, but chances are you will see some really creative rule bending below. But keep in mind that I did my best to make a list that was also an entertaining - and hopefully informational - read!

10. The guy from Riding Hero
How many other characters do you know that...
- Were so badass that they had a special move named after them?
- Starred in a motorcycle racing role playing game?
- Starred in a Neo Geo game that actually used the link feature?
Not many, I assure you ;D

9. Elta: certified Magician Lord - featuring his nemesis: Gal!
I've said it before but just for you I'll say it again: in my eyes he's SNKs very own blue bomber. Both his badass title as the Magician Lord and his super-hero magician costume makes Elta a winner in my book! Plus his game has some of the most hilarious monologues ever by a villain.

8. Moriya Minakata, as that guy from Last Blade.
Not quite Genjuro, not quite Iori with a sword, all badass. In fact, aside from the cute Akari, Moriya is just about the only character I truly like in Last Blade. His gameplay is extremely fluid, his animations have tons of oomph in them and his anti-hero personality actually works really well for me. I used his last name for several of my original creations, including custom characters in other games.

7. Clark Steel as the Metal Slug guest star.
I used to play Eri but then this guy came along. He's the most well balanced character in MS6 and MS7 but on top of that he can use is Super Argentine Backbreaker for a cool pose, plenty of invincibility and most importantly instant death to everything it touches! Tricky to play but a real score whore when you get down to it.

6. Shishioh, aka King Lion, as Rugal's stand-in.
This guy somehow manages to scream both ultimate final boss and 80s cartoon villain at the same time. He has no qualms about bringing his sword to a fight yet he still wears boxing gloves for some reason. On top of that he wears a medieval armor and sports a mohawk too. Yet Shishioh somehow manages to get away with all that and still compete with Rugal for the title of most badass boss ever in a fighting game. That's got to count for something!

5. Mina Majikina and Charlotte Colde, as the tie that f***ed up the entire list!
Argh! How can I choose? They're both part of the same series and neither of them did any real crossover work that I could use to bend the rules! To put it simply, Mina is my main from 5 up while Charlotte is the same from 4 down. And even though this would mean that Mina should win by default I still felt I hade to mention them both.
Mina - best character in the series, hands down.
Charlotte - best interpretation of Jeane D'Arc ever, hands down.
So there.

4. Leona Heidern, as the KOF original.
She takes all the Guile clones, cuts them up and probably eats them too when no one is watching. Leona mixes cute with pop-culture antics from Kamen Rider. She's cool and reserved yet manages to come off as very human. She's sexy but not overdone and has a dark side without becoming excessively emo. Being able to chop wood with her bare hands probably pushed her up a few spots too.

3. Blue Mary Ryan, as my first love. Fatal Fury.
Yeah I am huge Cammy fan but as much as I like the blonde britt she's just not very good to use as a character, at least not for me. So in comes Fatal Fury 3 and the debut of Blue Mary, and what do we have here? Another blonde sambo commando fighters, who eats shotos for breakfast??? Needles to say, along with Ryo she's been one of my absolute favorite characters throughout both her own series and KOF.

2. Ryo I used to be a main character you know Sakazaki, representing SNKs crossovers. - Uh, didn't I use to be number one on this list?

Shut up! At least you got the HD treatment and a spot in KOF12 unlike certain other people on this list. Anywaaay...
Make it AOF, KOF, SvC, CvS, Buriki One or even Fatal Fury - this guy is always around to represent. Ryo has been in more games than 98% of the characters on the planet and for a good reason too! Ryo brings a little slice of life and a doze of humor to the otherwise stale shoto archetype, and it's a perfect combination.

1. Lee Pai Long, as the Art of Fighting avatar.
Yeah I guess he had to be on there, being my avatar and all. So what makes Lee so cool? Well for starters he originates from AOF which is near instant star power in my book. More? Well, he's also clearly inspired by Sun Wukong - the star of Journey to the West - which is also near instant star power in my book. More? Seriously? Well okay then, I also like his fighting style in that he's one of those striker character who works fine without a fireball and gets around them when needed as well. His personality is very human too, despite his mask, because for me it represents the feeling that we're all a little insane, that no one is perfect but also that anyone can shine in the right light. Poethic huh?
