Samurai Shodown is one of the best fighting games Ive ever played. The way the battles are orchestrated, is fantastic. The 3DO version was really fun.
Someone beating you down, all of sudden, you pull a foward flip with the sword, and then pause for the final blow.
If they made Samurai Shodown today, just at that final blow, they should have written across the screen, OWNED!" spelled out 1 letter at a time, fairly quick.
Just picturing this, after you deliver the final blow, in my mind, it's hilarious.
