Article Index

There was a time, long before online gaming, when video games had a largely social aspect. Video arcades were everywhere and all you needed were quarters. When video game consoles started to become a staple of every home in the late 80s and early 90s, video arcade attendance dropped significantly and needed a game changer. Arcade game developers realized that they had to stay ahead of video game consoles by offering games that have superior graphics and required the social interaction that home video games lacked. It was then that the fighting game genre was born.


While there were one-on-one martial arts games before then, like Heavyweight Champ (1976) and Yie Ar Kung Fu (1985), it wasn’t until Street Fighter II’s release in 1991 when the fighting game convention was truly defined. The original Street Fighter game came out in 1987 but technology hadn’t caught up to the advanced motion and input detection necessary to make the animation run faster and smoother. With eight-way joystick switches, the range of motion for the characters to move on the screen was significantly superior to previous 4-way joystick inputs, allowing for greater depth in gameplay mechanics.

Alas, home console and PC gaming technology eventually caught up to arcade game graphics and most of the video game arcades in North America have closed down. You can only keep a business going for so long one quarter at a time with the economy as it is. While video game arcades are no longer as massive and profitable as they once were, Street Fighter has enjoyed success on the video game console and, with the success of Street Fighter IV in 2009, has also broken into PC gaming territory.


Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is a massive update to CAPCOM’s flagship fighting game title. Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition features 39 playable characters and is now equipped with an overhauled online system. Replays and records of other players can now be monitored in Super Street Fighter IV Arcade edition, so you can practice, compare and review matches while in front of your PC. With the GeForce driver 280.26 WHQL driver update, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition is now also rated NVIDIA 3D Vision ready, allowing for glitch free stereoscopic 3D gaming experience.
