From my guess, it must be something about demise of SNK... and these pics are from Penny Arcade.

Hopefully I'm wrong here; SNK did produce some 1337 games.

Sarcastic

tedious fighting games mostly

some of the cool neo-geo 'SNK' stuff people assume they made was actually produced by contracters or outside developers.

That Penny Arcade is (as usual) about as funny as seeing the family dog run over.

by "tedious fighting games" you mean games that require skill not down down-forward forward and 3 punches to take off a good 4th of the life bar aka marvel vs streetfighter?

SNK refined the art of the 2d fighter. Capcom continues to shovel crap out.

And not only fighters...have you ever played metalslug?

I will never understand the game industry. Kill the good stuff (look at all the wargame companies that have gone under) and shovel out crap.

yes indeed, metal slug...

....made by Nazca

If by 'refine' you mean making crap 3d & handheld versions of their old neo-geo games then I guess you're right

SF2 Turbo was the last decent 1 on 1 game capcom made

Samurai showdown was the only series I really liked by SNK that I can think of.

It sucks when any game company goes out of business though. Even if you don't like the games someone else might.

Only person I know that no one would mind going away is John Romero. Daikatan owns j00
