The Neo Geo is the greatest 16 bit machine of all time. From early titles like Magician Lord to the late era triumphs in pushing sprites and pre-rendered CG, Pulstar and Blazing Star shmups, the Neo was king. I remember the days when the home console with $200+ carts was spoken of in hushed tones of awe among kids who had to be content with an NES.

The only down side was the proliferation of fighters on the Neo. Shit, I like SF2 style games as much as anyone, but the Neo could have used a bit more stuff like Metal Slug.

It's a shame what the classic game price bubble has done to Neo cart prices-fucking insane.

i'm inclined to agree. i never could afford a neo geo. it wasn't until i picked up a jaguar many years later that i felt like i had a decent console.

the neo geo stands well even today.

I wouldn't call the amount of fighters on the Neo Geo a downside, especially since most of these were SNK fighters, only Capcom came close.

Still it would have been nice if they could have squeezed Magician Lord 2 in there somewhere. ML is a beautiful platformer, with atmosphere forever and a sequel was rumored. First played that game on a 2 slot MVS cab in one of those tiny Walmart arcades back in the late 90s - my first time playing a game on legendary N E O ⚫ G E O hardware - and the lush parallax of the first stage and everything is a cool memory.

Please check Neo Drift Out, now forgotten 2d racing game with a helicopter view. It is a lot of fun.

The price was high because the Neo Geo games use a lot of memory, and memory was freakishly cheap back then.
