Street Fighter Games
Get ready to hit hard with this awesome selection of Street Fighter games! It is crazy to think that for over three decades, Street Fighter has been the premier fighting game series. It changed the game in the arcades and the home console versions performed even better. Here you are going to find the ultimate collection of Street Fighter games and we are going to look at a few of the best, interesting and unusual games that you need to try out.
If you want old school Street Fighter games then you have to start with the original, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior. However, if that is perhaps a tad too old school for you then you are probably better jumping in with something like Street Fighter II Special Champion Edition or Street Fighter II Turbo which were massive and we mean massive hits when they appeared on the SNES and Sega Genesis/Sega Mega Drive in the early 90s.
One of the best series of Street Fighter games is the Alpha series and we well and truly have you covered here. From the first game, Street Fighter Alpha this series would have a more anime and stylish kind of look and feel about it. It offers a great mixture of classic characters and new characters too, all the while being a prequel to the events of Street Fighter II. It would be followed up by the better, Street Fighter Alpha 2 and then lastly, Street Fighter Alpha 3 which many regard as one of the best games in the entire Street Fighter series!
If you want to play Street Fighter games that are a tad different then the EX series is for you. This started on the original PlayStation with Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha which kept a similar 2D style of gameplay, but used 3D polygon characters. The last game in the series, Street Fighter EX 3 was actually a launch title for the PlayStation 2.
There are also some of the Capcom crossover games that feature Street Fighter characters. One of these, X-Men vs Street Fighter is arguably one of the most important Street Fighter games ever made as it would ultimately launch the Marvel vs Capcom series that we know and love to this day! Another cross over game that does not get the attention it deserves is Street Fighter X Tekken. This was a very interesting game and collaboration. It plays like Street Fighter IV, but perhaps the most interesting thing about this game is seeing Tekken characters play like Street Fighter ones. It is such a shame we never got to see Tekken X Street Fighter after this.
For those of you that want to play one of the more modern Street Fighter games, you need to see what Capcom did with Street Fighter IV. The best and most complete version of this series is Ultra Street Fighter IV which is jam packed with content. While the launch of Street Fighter V may have been a bit of a disaster. Capcom has well and truly turned it around and now it is one of the best fighting games of its generation and well worth your time.
