Should have directed you to use Ryo instead of Choi. He's practically a clone of Ryu from the Capcom games.
The PSTV is amazing.

ooooh. That would have been helpful. Haha. I never ventured out beyond those 3 because the choices were too overwhelming. I clung to any familiarity that I could find.

Ryo, Yuri, Robert Garcia (The Art of Fighting Team) are all VERY Street Fighter Veteran friendly.

So is Kyo, Iori, King (kinda), and Chizaru.
The PSTV is amazing.

This is by far the best King Fighters in the series (followed by 95,97,00 and 02) the characters are really well balanced and most of the console ports (specially the dreamcast one) are really closed to the original game (excluding loss a frames and sprite sizes).

I'm lucky enough that a Fiesta Mart has this game on MVS a couple blocks from my house and a lot of people play it. I either play it there or the Dreamcast port for practicing.

My top tiers are Chris, Shermie, and the hidden version of Terry (Hold start while selecting him) these characters are really fast and have both good defense and offensive moves, Shermie will take down Clark no matter what.

I'm an above average KOF player and KOF 98 is not an exeption. I'll be glad to play with yall via GGPO any of these days, even though I think emulators are for noobs.

sorry to necro-bump, but can now confirm, KOF 99 Dream Match on DC is way easier than 98 UM on PS2. Though the final boss is insane. But I couldn't get to him on PS2, yet got to him on one credit on DC.

It's because KoF '98 was essentially the anthology of all the ideas, characters, and bosses of the first four games. KoF '99 was reboot of everything, even a new story line.

It gets harder over the next two games. In general, I wasn't a fan of NESTS saga (KoF 99-2001). It was a little too Marvel vs Capcom for me.
