Oh interesting choice, I hadn't heard of that one. I answered this question recently, asked by someone else, here: www.girlsaskguys.com/.../q2043937-what-is-your-favourite-video-game
And my answer hasn't changed at all. So I'll just list a couple more favourites.
Yatagarasu is a little indie fighting game from Japan. Its mostly popular in japan, actually at the arcades, but it has a small community of online players too. It has the selling point of being 'like 3rd Strike and Garou made by the devs from King of Fighters' - I love the female characters:
Another fighting game fave, an old one, a very somber and beautiful game by SNK called the Last Blade. It's set in the Bakumatsu era of Japan, in the 1800s, a time as I understand often seen as the end of an era for Japanese culture. It shows the Samurai Showdown-style Samurais in an era where they were rapidly losing relevance, and work. The matches usually have no music, just the gentle sound of wind and rustling bushes. A remarkable game.
Some of the spinoffs had these wonderfully melodramatic titles, too, like one for the Neo Geo Pocket Colour which was called "The Flower that Blooms in the Moonlight, the Flower that Dies and Falls Apart"
