Wow, my list is missing the SF Zero series. I like them all, but 3 is the best.

Our votes here for the best fighter ever seem to be in the minority...

For some reason I seem to prefer the "2nd best" title in each popular series over the established popular choices. I.e.
Favourite version of SF2 is Champion Edition.
Favourite version of SFZ is Zero 2 Alpha.
Favourite version of SF3 is 2nd Impact.
Favourite version of KOF is 97.

Also, where are all the mentions for 31k fighters; Guilty Gear, Bazblue, Hokuto No Ken... yeah, they're **** aren't they. :lol:

Yie Ar Kung Fu
first, I grew up with it in the eighties at a time when I played LCD handhelds and thought Game & Watch Donkey Kong was the ultimate in home video game entertainment.
second it still plays very well and was a very important step towards the later milestones (it's still a **** better than the first Street Fighter, which admittedly doesn't say that much).
