First off, I want to say hello, nice to meet you (despite it being initially off topic). I'm CrimsonCujo, a gamer who doesn't deserve to call himself one (speaking negatively) due to my lack of skill. I do have fun playing though, but I wish I could do more with it.
Anyways, to start off, I am a total SNK rookie. The only SNK game I have ever played is Fatal Fury 1-3 (since I have the Battle Collection Vol. 1 for PS2). After playing that, I wondered to myself: why didn't I hear about this series back when I was growing up? (Granted, back then gaming was seen by parents as a means to encourage juvenile delinquency - at least in my household, so I grew up with limited exposure to video games).
I began frequenting my local video game shack about a year or so ago (not GameStop or the like; when I say local, I mean it). Just recently however, I discovered another game by the same company who made the Fatal Fury games. Again, I was all like "Why the heck wasn't I aware of this sooner?". I picked it up, but because I picked it up so recently, I haven't been able to touch it (a lot of things happening in my life atm).
So to sum it up, I want to learn more about the wondrous universe that SNK has created. Granted, due to not using a credit card, certain titles will be unavailable unless they appear at my local game store.
But, I'm eager to learn about SNK's universe as a whole. How long has SNK been around? Is it a company as old as Squaresoft/SquareEnix? Was Fatal Fury their first franchise? Teach me, oh wondrous members of Orochinagi! I desire to learn!
And by the way, through simple looking at the case of the game I bought, I like the girl with that giant red staff, as well as the brown-haired punk. I won't say anymore about which game I got, since I'm sure you guys can figure it out.
Anyways, here's to becoming a member of the SNK fanbase!
