Are those older KOF games on sale now much different from XIII? A scrub like me would pick them up if they gave a better experience.

In various ways, yeah. 98UM is much less combo-focused in general, and is more straightforward to play. 2002UM is somewhere in between 98 and XIII.

Certain things have stricter timing in 98UM and 2002UM than in XIII, though, so you’ll still need to practice.

98UM is the one I recommend for beginners, personally.
