Legitimate complaints about a modern product don't lose credibility just because a nostalgia trip convinces some people it's still the 90s.

I learned about the inferiority of console ports with X Men vs Street Fighter. I loved that game to death in arcades and convinced my little brother to pool our money to get it on PS1. Then reality hit that the PS1 didn't have the ability to have real tag matches and the graphics were way worse. I also learned that Wal Mart won't take back opened games that day. Double bummer.


I didn't like it much at first too, because there were alots of missing sprites (Gambit and Magneto come into mind) but even with not having the tag like in the arcade, it did not take me long to enjoy the game nonetheless, and Gambit was a monster in the ps1 version, the memories.

Anyone here in their 30s like me and remembers the early/ mid 90s and how obsessive we are over the home ports of street fighter 2 and alphas ? We would anazlye each missing sprite , each sound effect, each pixel and generally we were happy despite the vastly inferior home versions. I still distinctly remember the exact moments I would rush to toys r us and back home to excitedly play street fighter 2 and turbo and super and to s lesser extent the snes version of alpha 2. I would spend months going over every screenshot in magazines and read every article I could find about upcoming update.

Just seeing all the people complaining on these boards over the collection. Geez we would have literally given an ARM to have just one of these games for homeplsy at this quality back in the early to mid 90s

Started following you. Well said. You touched a heart string with me. I'm 36 myself.


Thanks man ! I'm 36 too.

Time changes. Nowdays you have perfect emulation on pretty much any PC and without spending a dime. You even have fightcade with a pretty damn good netcode, again, for free.
So, it's ok. I know those aren't the "right" methods. Capcom (in this case) decides to release a compilation of old games, you expect them to be like their free counterparts at least... But no, you have to pay for an inferior product. It's pretty logical to complaint. Back in the day, you couldn't because the console versions were the only way to play those games.
I'm 33 by the way. Still I like my games to be as high-quality as possible... I'd say even more than when I was younger.

I've been gaming since the 70's so going to the Arcades was a good hangout spot with friends. The console SF2 experience was the day I got SF2 Dash with Turbo on the Super Famicom. It was a great collection at the time.
The cartridge days. No loadings, or input lag, or waiting for the games to start up.

I bet some people here remember the 10 star speed code.
