I actually got to see Street Fighter 1, and it was good for the times. SF2 came out, and it was amazing, way ahead of anything and you got to be diffewrent fighters, quite a new concept then.
I spent numerous quarters on the game, bought every SNES version, and had fun.
I'd play Ken, since at the time I was still active in Martial arts, I had long blonde hair for a long time, and I even had a red gi that I'd wear before fights.
My bets friend back then always played as Honda. I didn't relaize the correlation between Ken and my choice until my girlfrieds (psych degree) Said I picked ken because he most looked like me, and my friend picked Honda because they looked most alike. And it was true.
