Like the question in last week's bombcast said. I was gonna do a poll, but there are just too many Street Fighter games.
- Street Fighter V
- Street Fighter 3 3rd Strike Online Edition
- Street Fighter 2 The World Warriors
- Super Street Fighter 4
- Street Fighter Alpha 3 UPPER
I presume everyone's gonna have a story about why their specific games are what they ended up with, and I'd like to hear everyone else's. That's more interesting than just a plain list.
In my case, World Warriors was my first. I used to visit my neighbor all the time to play at his house when I was like six years old. I bought a used SNES much later and played it on that, too. At the time I only liked Blanka and Chun-Li, and was a big fan of Ken and Guile's stages and music, but with enough time and nostalgia I just love every melody and every character in that game. When I was around 13, I ordered the GBA versions of Alpha 3 and Super Turbo. It was an awful way to play those games, and I didn't have too much fun with them, but it was my first time seeing all the Alpha characters.
I got a 360 in something like 2011 and played a little Street Fighter 4 here and there, but honestly I never liked playing it that much. It was cool seeing everyone in 3d, and it was still Street Fighter, but I wasn't a fan of how it looked or sounded or even moved for that matter. A few years later, I tried Iron Galaxy's port of 3rd Strike, and that's an awesome game. Best animations I've seen in a fighting game, just feels great and responsive to play. I'd play it weekly with my flatmate for years during college, him always using Ibuki and I using either Chun-Li or Makoto. Street Fighter V, as broken a first year as it's been, is the deepest I've gotten into any of these games. I feel like it's a choice I need to defend, so here goes: I actually use the online features a ton, I enjoy the new mechanics, and I can still get my college mate on for matches a couple of nights a week. I really like how it looks and feels, and their remixes of classic stages and songs and their new characters are mostly cool instead of mostly blegh.
