Beginning in 1994 with the KOF 94, the King of Fighters originally started with the idea of taking characters from popular SNK games and putting them into a team against team format. Though the fighting format has evolved over the years, the original team format remains in tact. With new games in production nearly every year, KOF shows no signs of slowing down in the years to come.
Any basic KOF conversation is to be had here. Some example questions:
Do you like it? Why do you like it? How long how have you liked it?
What's your favourite game?
What's your favourite character? Who are you best with?
What's your favourite team? Do you pick the game defaults? How has your team changed over the years?
Which hero is the best? Which storyline is the best?

I first started really getting into the series when I played CVS 2 but before that I only knew of the characters.
I liked the way the characters were designed and I liked the moves they had 3nodding I'm going to try and get really involved in it later on though, so you all might see a post from me asking what combos are good and other questions.
Shut up Art! - Pushes him in mud, because Art is the same age as him, he can do that - Anyways, My first KoF was '96, and because of that it is my favorite, also I think it has the best music of all the KoF games, mostly the OST though, the AST was decent.
Funny, Chizuru was kinda easy especially compared to Geonitz and the Chizuru/Maki tag team. I really love the endings these past years. Excluding the hero teams I personally loved The Female Fighters '96, Korean Team '99, NEST '01 ('cause it was different from the rest), and AoF team '03 endings.
My first KOF was in 95 and it is still my favourite because it introduced the world to Iori Yagami...which paved the way for the really weird Iori/Kyo pairings, not that I mind! ^^ I really love playing K', Beni, Iori, and Whip as a team. I am not too good with Kula, but I can still deal lethal damage!
I love Shingo for the fact that he sticks with Kyo no matter way! xd
