From SuperiorAttack: "For much of the early 90's, fighting games were the poster child of video games. Everywhere you looked, there was a Street Fighter II or Mortal Kombat arcade cabinet. People would line up to play the latest installment of Samurai Shodown or The King of Fighters at local arcades. There were even movies based on fighting games. Truly, fighting games were the biggest thing gaming had seen since Mario. But it would not be that way forever."
