Not content to let the past go peacefully, GamePro looks back at a generation of video games that started the first console war, brought arcade games back from the brink, and showed gamers what 3D graphics could do in a cartridge.
#2: Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (SNES)
Original GamePro Score: N/A
Claim To Fame: SFII Turbo on the SNES bought even more speed to an already excellent formula of fisticuffs, plus it added new moves and color sets for Capcom fighters to brawl over.
It's easy to think how innocent gamers once were. Back in 1993, the thought of playing as the same character in a fighting game was a pipe dream. But with this bigger, badder Street Fighter, you could finally settle once and for all who played a better Ryu. Street Fighter II Turbo hit homes pretty quickly after the arcade version did, and the ability to crank the speed all the way up to a whopping four stars made following your own character deliciously impossible. If you wanted to boast about reflexes, SFII Turbo was the place to run your fingers and your mouth, and it still holds up today as a tournament-worthy title.
