    I looked around a bit and it appears there's no "official" thread regarding this type of games.
    I thought I'd open one since just a few days ago I bought KoFXIII and been trying to get into it ever since.

    So go ahead and discuss whatever you feel like it about those games.It'd be nice if we could exchange information and advices on those games(although i can't offer much from my part as I have very little experience on 2d fighting games at the current moment)

    I started giving 2d fighting games a shot around 2011 with Blazblue Continuum Shirt,which I played a bit online and with a friend.Then for a couple or so years I didn't play it at all and just now I got myself KoFXIII which is giving me a harder time online(than BBCS) as I often get matched against players who are levels above me.

    honestly you could probably just search for a specific 2d game and find a respective thread or discussion

    I liked Weaponlord, which took time for me to get into eventually. It was more of a successor to the game Barbarian, from the 1980s. So fortunately for me, the character designs weren't a more convenient influence from the mid 1990s, opposed to the rest.

    It was kind of ahead from depth to complexity measure. Every strike can be parried and blocked, throws included. Every character had about 10 to 12 special moves. The skilled combo performance, the SNES version especially, were considerably more strict in timing than the rest of the fighting games I've played. The motion controls, every character had most of the time a special move command where you had to hold either a medium to strong attack button, then motion the rest of the command to register the attack. So basically, these aspects and the fundamentals are where I had to readjust my perspective on 2d fighting games, because I was use to the familiarity that modern ones had. However, Street Fighter and more so the King of Fighters series helped me with the transition.

    It's too bad that the this game was released the year of the first Playstation and on low powered consoles during the time, because it was released as arcade perfect on it, which meant frames were cut and so were extra characters. Arcade mode from a difficulty setting, there was a story expansion for each characters before entering story mode with them. After spending alot of time with Weaponlord at the time unfortunately, I can't go back to any other 2d ones.

    weaponlord is a game i have never played, but some people have told me it's surprisingly not awful. beyond sparse knowledge of the game mechanics, i know almost nothing about it.

    Fighters History 1 and Fighters History Dynamite aka. Karnov's Revenge, are really nice fighting games. One thing I like about this fighting game series, is that it has alot of interesting characters. And it is easy to pull off combos. And the combos in these games, are easier to do than in Street Fighter.

    Like alot of gamers, I was never a fan of the SF3 games.
    But I like SF3 Double Impact on dreamcast, more than Third Strike.
    I'm also glad they decided, to put Chun Li in the game too.
