Hello from Sweden!
ying
Hi folks!
I am looking to get into Neo Geo again after 25 years.
I had an AES back in 1991. Endless hours of fun playing Baseball Stars 2, Ninja Combat, Sengoku, Super Baseball 2020 and Fatal Fury Grin

But I do not know which way to go. I understand that there are many variants these days, from AES to CD to MVS to CMVS to Supergun.

How do I find my way in this jungle?

Thanks a lot Smile

Hi Ying, welcome to our humble forum. We are not so active as infamouse neo-geo.com but we are so much more friendly here Wink Awesome you're from the release era.

If you want to solve your question, you should answer yourself honestly; how much can and should I spend? Neo Geo prices has gone skyrocketing since release, so be prepared. Some early AES games are still friendly priced, the same for the system, so you can safely get these.

To play the rare AES titles, a supergun (with the MVS versions of these titles) are a good alternative. Much cheaper but beware, also some of these prices are increasing (fast). A combination of AES and supergun is still great. I can't recommend the CD system, never owned it. A cabinet is also great but you should have the space and technical knowledge for it.

Please add a topic in the appropiate section, I'm sure other members can give you more tips and tricks!

What? Another one from Sweden, welcome! Where in Sweden do you live?
 
ying
Thanks for the welcome!
I live in Stockholm. Back in 1991 I drooled over Neo Geo at the big, luxurious department store NK. In the simpler part of town there was a store trading second hand neo geo and other systems, on Ringvägen, that´s where I got my stuff Smile
And of course, you had buy and sell in a newspaper style weekly paper called Gula sidorna (Yellow Pages). That´s where I made my biggest mistake, selling my AES...
 
Henke
Ahh haha I remember buying Gula Tidningen and read everything even though I could never buy anything. Sweet self torture. Smile

Many thanks Sensi!
I am not looking to overspend. An AES, or Cmvs, would be nice of course. And then making do with cheaper games as I find them here and there.
Or a CD , just for the much cheaper games Smile

Hi and welcome to the NEO GEO forum that counts, Ying Thumbs Up

Avoid the NEO GEO CD if you can and go for the real deal either an AES or a CMVS.

Welcome to the forum ying.

Congrats on getting a Neo Geo CD system. That was a good decision. Hope you get a lot of enjoyment out of it.

People are put off getting a NGCD because of the loading times but for many games they are short. There are quite a few games which only need to load at the start so it's pretty much like playing the cartridge version e.g. Last Resort, Viewpoint, Nam 1975, Mutation Nation, Fatal Fury, Crossed Swords, Cyber-Lip etc.

I think having both a CD and a cart system is a good idea, playing the games which have longer loading times on AES or MVS instead.
 
NEO-GEO man
Ive got 6 CD machines here now, i love them all!
 
jsianes
I'm also trying to buy NGCD games. If you know a place in Europe where find them cheap please let me know. Welcome to the forum!
