I bought the Neo Geo back in the day from Babbages when they were doing a pack in deal. I got the system, Magician Lord, Fatal Fury, two controllers and a memory card...all for $699!!! This game was it for the day...but man was it tough!

I'm pretty sure you got a deal too! What an expensive system, but no other console could bring the arcade to your home like the Neo Geo could.

And they said the PS3 was overpriced!

jaidek3249d ago

It was pricey at the time, but to actually play arcade perfect games in your living room was amazing. Also, anyone that owned a Neo-Geo can attest to its build quality. The system and controllers were hefty, not like today's cheaper feeling consoles. I still kick myself for trading it in towards my Japanese PlayStation.

Pity you don't really see that level of creativity in video game today. Especially now when so many devs went with the UT engine.

@Godmars290 - I know what you mean. I think Muramasa on the Wii has that creativity your talking about. Having allot of fun with it now.

Magician Lord is one classic neo title. Nice that you can get it for the Wii VC now. Its almost like I owned a Neo Geo. almost :)

I always forget about the Wii's VC.
