Yeah, kind of pointless to compare a game that is crap to begin with. The best thing about it is that ports couldn't really get much worse.^^

I never wondered about the first Street Fighter. Street Fighter II was fine and never made me question what came before. 

Like the movie Leonard Part 6 was the only movie made in the series. Always thought they just started at Street Fighter II.

Now knowing the horrible truth, I want to talk to management! :P

Here's something I found on YouTube to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter.  I present to you, I Am Street Fighter - 25th Anniversary Documentary.

Special mention needs to go to the C64 version here, it even manages to make the CPC version look good! Disgusting! Obviously the PCE version is a hands down winner here, even if the graphics look a bit stretched in the video. I'm pretty certain that isn't correct.

What a terrible game.

I remember playing this game on arcade when I was 10/11 in my grandpa's village, controls were really bad but it was cool back then.

I really wanted to have it on the Spectrum but never could, the cover ilustration is still awesome!

BTW, the same team released years later Fatal Fury on the Neo Geo.

There's a Spanish saying that goes:  Para los gustos, los colores.  It could be translated as: For every color, there's a taste.  ;)

I don't think no one wants to play it today but back then was the first 1 vs 1 arcade game, everybody loved it despite its controls and it 's the basis of the genre, call it videogame culture. ;)

Far from the first! That honour goes to Karate Champ - released in 1984 by Data East:

I expressed myself bad, I was trying to say it was the first game which really marked the way the future fighting games took, the first one which added specials like the hadoken.

Karate Champ was just karate, is a simulator but even if it's included it's not the very first fighting game, that was Heavyweight Champ in 1976 by Sega, a 1 vs one boxing game. ;)

The first game with special moves was Yie Ar Kung Fu by Konami:

Well, I haven't seen any specials in that vid... Specials are spirit attacks like Ryu's hadoken.

Awesome - Love this game, so going to bookmark out an hour on Monday for this.

Feel a bit sorry for the guys who paid $150, assume they got other goodies!
