I've been playing Virtua Fighter since its first iteration and I have never liked Akira as an opponent. Of course he's hell to learn how to use, but trying to fight him is even worse. Take all this with a grain of salt since I still love the game. I realize the challenge of beating Akira is a motivation to play, so I'm not knocking the game itself, just venting about what a **$%#@@ he is. Who's with me and does this qualify as a poll? BTW I've been learning Aoi's moves and she's now my new favorite (Shun being the first and Lion second).
