Many years ago, at the Timezone in Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast, there were many, many fighting game cabinets. Sadly, none of them are there now, but that's beside the point.
I went there one day, and among the fighting game cabinets, there was Soul Calibur 2.
I beat the game by spamming Kilik's A+B spinning move thing.
I was impressed because this was back when I thought arcade games were supposed to be impossible (and before I knew fighting games were played competitively).
Also, I kinda think that going 3-3 in my first SF tournament was pretty good, too.
