Destructoid: "I've been a fan of the Street Fighter games for more than half of my life. The first game in the series I ever played was Fighting Street on the TurboGrafx-CD. Despite its crappy two-button controls, narrow selection of playable characters (Ken and Ryu), and a multitude of other "flaws," I absolutely loved the game, and on some level, I still do.
Ever since then, I've picked up every Street Fighter game brought to the home market (with a few exceptions) on the day they've been released, but with the release of Street Fighter IV, that long tradition has finally been broken. Though I did feel some pull to pick the game up when it hit stores last Tuesday, I ended up passing on the purchase, and so far I haven't regretted it. I'm sure I'll end up buying the game eventually, but I'm not entirely certain that's going to happen this week, or even this year.
What does it take to make a die-hard Street Fighter fan pass on the first major Street Fighter game to be released in almost ten years?"
