I think they should somehow "remaster" Street Fighter 1, making it easier to execute special moves. Even if they throw in all these games, the only ones I'd play are probably just SSF2 Turbo, SFA3 and SFIII 3rd Strike, the rest are more or less the same as these 3 anyway.

I have an idea, why don't they throw in all the characters from each version into a single game? Then you can select a character from any version and fight against character from other version? E.g. SF1 Ryu VS SFIII 3rd Strike Ryu.

That would be pretty cool if Someone made a official fighter maker type game, make your fighters and pick your moves, etc etc. Similar to the THQ WCW/WWF games on the N64 create a player. I just LOVED those games, I made the best wrestler that kicked everyone's butt that played against me, cause I always picked the fastest hardest hitting moves and easily won

Like, we do have a RPG maker and other type of games like it that you can make your own "game" out of it, but never one that is official for fighting games from the big devs that make fighting games.

No it's not, that game doesn't let you choose the same character from different generate of the games and it was a horrible.

Easy there.

I was just satirising that game because it got disjointed graphics and it's awfully unbalanced wich is a common thing in most mugen games.

The problem i have with this collection is that there is no way i'd play all those games.

So, why even have all those SF2 versions?

Cause they tried to not have them in other versions, people complained cause the version they liked wasn't there.

But what is the point of older SF2 versions? They didn't have exclusive stages and systems.

It was just faster gameplay, but that is all in the later version with supers. There is literally no reason to play previous versions. Maybe nostalgia for the championship edition that released on consoles back then. But the rest... cmon even the earlier versions of alpha and SF3 will see little play.

Oh well... not like more is less. But if it would give me a discount i'd definitely skip them.

People who love fighting games are extremely picky about versions of the games they like. There are small differences that to them is the best instead of the newer one.

Sometimes, also, newer characters ruin the game for them and they just like playing against the original lineup.

For people who play Street Fighter 2 religiously all those versions are worth getting because there are different priorites in moves and stuff that most of us don't bother understanding and that for them brings an array of strategies they can employ between each version.

Something worth mentioning about the Street Fighter 3 versions is that New Generation and 2nd impact remained exclusive for the dreamcast until this compilation, so it adds more value into getting this.
