The youngsters these days might have all the games and the most advanced games consoles, but for those who grew up between the 80s and the 90s definitely remember the good old days where the most favourite gathering spot to meet friends would be at the arcade hall. I myself was amazed back then by the quality of Street fighter which was developed by Capcom and was made available in most arcade halls in 1987. I was more blown away with Street Fighter 2 The World Warrior which was released a few years after 1991. Capcom back then and till these day, produces a great selection of video games, but it is good to know that Street Fighter was one of the very first games that made their name shine bright, and with a reason. No one ever saw such a high quality video game at that time!
