Things you never knew about Street Fighter

The most famous fighter in video game history might be a little old, but it still packs a wallop.
And lots of Hadoukens.
Believe it or not, Capcom's legendary Street Fighter turns 25 today. While it wasn't the first fighting game ever made (that honor arguably goes to the 1976 coin-op Heavyweight Champ), Street Fighter indelibly altered the genre with its intuitive controls, fantastic animations and deep gameplay. It's had an equally large impact on popular culture, spinning off into movies, cartoons, and even a fancy slot machine. (PS Vita, PS2, PS3, Street Fighter, Xbox, Xbox 360)

I remember when I played street fighter 2 back when I was a kid. ( I am only 5 years older then street fighter)Sagat and M. Bison was tough!! Days of sore thumbs, and indestructable dragon punches.Truly this is a game ( like virtua fighters) where you have to play this game for years to actually master or become good in. This is a game where most kids WILL NOT beat you in:)

Did you know that the toughest street fighter boss was shin akuma on street fighter alpha 2?(Saturn version of course)
