I''ve seen some very interesting discussions recently on the mechanics of platform fighters (street fighter, tekken)contrasted with traditional rpg battles (ff series, secret of mana). I am currently developing a platform style fighter and have reached the point where gameplay needs to be really well defined for me to continue. My question is what do you think the best way to merge RPG stats with a fighting game? For example, if you have played OMF:2097 (the only great PC platform fighter to my knowledge), you can upgrade your fighter with improvements in speed, power and endurance. Also, you have various robots that you can use, which have arm/leg power, speed, armor and so on.. Anyway, this system adds a tremendous amount of replay value to the game and makes it much more enjoying because as you progress through the various tournaments you keep improving your fighter with the money you earn from victories, so a loss actually matters to you. I really liked this idea and wanted to apply a similar concept to my game, but since you guys come up with such great ideas I wanted to see what kinds of thoughts you had on this. PreManDrake
