"Streets of Rage, developed by Sega in 1991 for the Megadrive, is a near perfect gaming experience. Whereas many gamers might highlight Mario as a simplistic, pure and iconic gaming experience I personally would rather say this about Streets of Rage. Streets of Rage, for me, is a focal point of greatness in gaming. It’s one of those games that I use as a reference point to compare everything else against."
