Forums - Gaming Discussion - Alternatives to SNK and Capcom Games?

Since that worthless cock sucker of a prince has bought SNK, and a minority stake in Capcom, it feels like there's nothing we can do but find alternatives to SNK and Capcom franchises, just to avoid paying that cockroach.

Anyone here know good alternatives to Metal Slug, King of Fighters, Samurai Showdown, Mega Man, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Dead Rising and Ghosts N' Goblins?

I found Mighty Goose which looks like a fun alternative to Metal Slug at least.



And there are some here that look like they'd be good Street Fighter/King of Fighters alternatives.

Dragonball Fighter Z is a pretty good alternative to Marvel. Guilty Gear or Melty Blood are closer to Street Fighter V. 

Of course, there's always the other option.

For once I'm ok with that. Know any alternatives to Resident Evil? I would've said Silent Hill had Konami fucked that franchise over.



Just sell your soul to the devil and play the videogames you like. Might as well make yourself happy while you are alive, cause I doubt some Saudi Prince is gonna get stressed out because he is not getting those captainexplosion dollars anymore. Join us in the darkness. Be one with the void.

Void, you say? You chose your words poorly. *eviscerates Jpcc86, puts a bomb in the wound, sews it back up, kicks him out a window and detonates the bomb*

Another good Metal Slug alternative is Blazing Chrome.

I mean, any third party companies could at any moment have minority or majority stakes sold to sketchy companies like that or Tencent. Why get attached to a new series that could get scooped up or at least partially purchased into? Your safest bet would be one of the Big 3, but even they could have minority shares owned by sketchy people.

Could you please not bring that up when I'm trying to find hope in an increasingly compromised gaming industry?

Depends on what you mean by Resident Evil. If you mean RE4-6, I'd suggest Tomb Raider. It's a bit similar in gameplay in that you're playing as a character who has guns and projectiles against enemies that do not, so the shooting aspect is about crowd control and stuff. If you're looking for a survival horror experience, the best I could think of is Zombi U, which also falls into the Dead Rising category a bit. The game was buggy as fuck on the Wii U, which is unfortunate because it was a really nice survival horror game otherwise. Genuinely makes you think carefully before firing a bullet. They remade it for PS4 and Xbox One I think, hopefully without bugs.

Ok, what about a good game that's kinda like the first three Resident Evil?

Sorry, I normally like to be optimistic, but perfection out of any company is impossible.
