A log of the games -D- I remember having played.

Dead Island. Dead or Alive. The gameplay of Dead or Alive was unique at the time of its debut because it featured different choices in gameplay than other 3D fighting games (at least at the time).

Dead or Alive

Its most defining features were its speed and countering system. Dead or Alive put an emphasis on speed, and relied more on simplistic commands and reaction time. Furthermore, its countering system was the first in the fighting genre to utilize different commands that corresponded to each type of attack.

There are two kinds of holds, an Offensive Hold (OH) and a Defensive Hold (DH). Dead or Alive 2. Gameplay[edit] A fight in DOA2 on the Dreamcast In DOA2, the basis of the entire fighting system is the circular relationship between three types of moves: holds, throws, and blows.The other defining feature of DOA2, aside from holds/throws/blows, is its stun system.

Dead or Alive 2

In DOA2 many attacks upon hitting will inflict a stun on the opponent. While stunned, the opponent cannot attack, and cannot guard, but they can hold. If the attacker lands a non-knockdown, non-launching attack while the opponent is stunned, the opponent will be re-stunned in a new way, depending on what attack was landed. In DOA2, sometimes battles will occur on either water or ice; when a character is on such a surface, all non-knockdown, non-launching attacks will induce a stun on any successful hit. Defender. Defender was one of the most important titles of the Golden Age of Arcade Games, selling over 55,000 units to become the company's best selling game and one of the highest-grossing arcade games ever.
