Capcom: Developer of the Past

VGW: I grew up loving Capcom’s games. Street Fighter II Turbo occupied so much of my time growing up, and my constant quest to find a reasonable copy of Marvel vs. Capcom 2 for either the Playstation 2 or Xbox sucked up much of my time in college. I even remember saving all my allowance as a kid for when my family went to Shenandoah Acres each summer, so I could live in the arcade and feed quarters into the original X-Men vs. Street Fighter.

I still have and love my Super Nintendo with copies of Street Fighter II Turbo and Super Street Fighter II Turbo, as well as my Sega Dreamcast with Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Unfortunately, that same loving feeling that I used to look at Capcom with has diminished for one reason: they haven’t moved forward.

Interesting read. I wouldn't say Capcom hasn't moved forward. I'd say that they are moving in the wrong direction.

I must be one of the only gamers that just didn't give a damn about Street fighter 4, but I take that as posative thing now, considering all crap Capcom has been pulling with DLC and rehashing the game over and over again.
