Why The Sequel To Rival Schools Is My Favorite Fighting Game Ever

Richard Eisenbeis: ''Growing up, I had two game systems: a barely working Atari 2600 (which lived largely forgotten in our guestroom closet) and an original NES. These lasted me until 1997 when I saved up and bought a Super Nintendo—over a year after the release of both the original PlayStation and Nintendo 64.

So, during my childhood, I did what many young gamers did: went to friends' homes and played with them on their game systems. Of course, as I was the invader, I had little choice as to what we played. So in my young years, I played a staggering variety of games: platformer to puzzle, racing to adventure—and, of course, fighting games.

Back in the 90s, fighting games were the go-to type of game when you had more than two people over and wanted to game—the loser just passed the controller to the next person in line. So as a kid, I played everything from various iterations of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter to Killer Instinct and Primal Rage.'' (Arcade, Project Justice)

Rival Schools is one of my all time favorite fighting games from the PS1 days.

They really need to make a current or next gen sequel to this game.

I remember playing this on the Dreamcast. If you play Rival Schools in an emulator and scale it up to 1080p it is surprising how good it looks for such an old game.

It is a really good fighting game. I agree they need Rival Schools 3 and Power Stone 3.
