17. Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting (SNES)

Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting Super Alpha Awesome Fun Edition… Okay, maybe some of that was made up. Street Fighter 2 Turbo was the definitive Street Fighter 2 package for home consoles back in the day. While this version doesn’t contain the four new characters (who honestly sucked except for Cammy) it features faster gameplay and a more refined control. Street Fighter 2 is a classic, everybody knows these characters. From the cocky American Ken, to the evil boss of Shadaloo, M. Bison, these guys (and one gal) don’t get any more memorable. This was the first game to really pull off fighting game mechanics, and the surprising thing is how well it still holds up. Pulling off those Hadoukens and Shoryukens never gets old, and will keep you mashing those buttons well into the night with a buddy.
