sf2_arcadeAh Street Fighter II, how you have become a beloved fighter franchise.  While the celebrated fighter may hold a special place in the hearts of arcade enthusiasts or those who were teens in the mid 90s, I am always fascinated by the stories of the game’s genesis.  Since I will never have access to the veteran team responsible for Capcom’s classic, Matt Leone (formerly of 1UP and now at Polygon) has covered just that in his recent Oral History of Street Fighter II.  It’s an amazing and deep read that any fan of game development should definitely take in.  I swear, features like this prove that true featured articles did not die with print.
