So I got the 30th Anniversary Collection for the PS4 and I find it simply impossible to execute any special move in the original SF. Where is the trick to it, does it require some really odd timing or is it just a matter of luck?

Never got past Adon in the arcade, can't get past Adon now.

It’s stupid no matter what you do, but I recall holding the button and then doing the stick motion being more effective then doing it like SF2.
And this time!

I ended up finishing SF1 in that collection. By pure luck mind you. I just kept doing the motions and mashing the buttons and every so often a fireball or dragon punch would happen. They are so overpowered that 2 or 3 connect and it's over.

Holding the button didn't work, I did the button mashing method and Ryu would just randomly perform a Hadouken or Shoryuken. Only took two unblocked hits to win a round but connecting them proved to be somewhat difficult.

There's really not a way to pull off specials consistently in SF1. I beat the game once on the Capcom Classics Collection but that was pretty much just by smashing my head against it until I won.

Has there ever been a sequel that was a bigger improvement over the original than Street Fighter 2?

I'm old enough to remember when they wheeled Street Fighter into the arcades for the first time.

I was like 12 and everybody was blown away by those graphics.

I'm old enough to remember Street Fighter in the arcades, but I don't remember the game being a big deal at the time.

I remember the big buttons that were supposed to respond to how hard you hit them. Like the harder you hit them the stronger the attack.

Super Mario 3 over 1/2 in Japan
Mario Land 2 over 1
Red Steel 2 on the Wii
Soul Caliber vs Soul Edge/Soul Blade
GTA3 over 1/2
Assassin's Creed 2 over 1
Plenty of lists various publications have put out that include Smash Bros. melee, Half-life 2, Pokemon Gild, Silent Hill 2, Metal Gear Solid 2, Resident Evil 2, Shenmue 2...

Red Steel is similar to SF1 where the 1st game set a very low bar. Soul Caliber had a similar advantage of coming out on upgraded hardware.

Why is it I feel Saxon us either misremembering or is using a canned response?
