Probably the first I can vaguely remember was playing Virtua Fighter on an arcade machine at Gitex, maybe 1993 or 1994. All I remember it was a 3D polygonal fighting game. Most likely it was Vitua Fighter. Afterwards it was Mortal Kombat 2 on the PC in 1995. Man, I still remember that we had to go to MS-Dos and input these long commands just to play MK2, Aladdin (Genesis version on PC), and Lion King. And in those days we didn't have an instruction manual or a magazine to tell us even how to do specials let alone fatalities. Then afterwards Virtua Fighter, Groove On Fight, and Last Bronx on Sega Satrun. How about you guys? Do you remember your first times playing fighting games? EDIT: Wait! I forgot about that FAMICOM game Kung Fu. Is that even considered a fighting game?
