Some franchises have gotten better with each game though, street fighter and mortal kombat come to mind. Of course MK had to come a looooooooooooooong way to be playable. Anyone who says they don't want darkstalkers and street fighter 4 is a damned liar.
There are always exceptions to the rule, but I think most people would say that the SF peaked at II. Alpha and III let most people down. Don't get me wrong 3rd Strike is frickin awesome, but not too many people give it the love it deserves.
Also I think NightWarrior: Darkstalkers Revenge is the best in that series. Vampire Savior added some great new characters and features, but alot of people hate the continues life bars in that game. You are correct though that people would kill for sequels to both of those 2D fighters.
True enough, personally I think the street fighter games have gotten better as years gone on. And third strike really doesn't get the respect ti deserves. And darkstalkers got lal btu ignored here which is a crying shame.

Bah, the games combat system is weak. I totally agree multiplayer makes a good fighter even better but DOA just sucks the combat system always felt limited and the characters flavorless.
