We had a blast from the past last night. Dave brought Street Fighter 2 Anniversary Edition to the flat. Like most kids growing up in the early '90s I played my fair share of the original fighting game. As it came bundled with almost every SNES, performing a Hadouken, was a pretty essential social skill.
Street Fighter 2 is responsible for a generation of kids with above average hand-eye-coordination a rapid button pressing skills. Last night we had the first of what will undoubtedly be many 'winner-stays-on' tournaments. It was good to play the old game again, now all we need is NBA Jam Tournament Edition and Super Mario Kart. Perhaps we should just buy a SNES.
