Street Fighter Games

Capcom's Street Fighter turned 35 last year and Street Fighter 6 is just around the corner, so now is as good a time as any to ask the most important of questions; no, not "what's the meaning of life?" or "why do I only have odd socks in my underwear drawer?" We're talking about the real big question facing mankind: "Which Street Fighter game is the absolute best?"

To answer this query, we've revived this article (which was originally published with a basic poll in August last year) to hopefully give us some idea what you – the games-playing public – think is the best instalment in the long-running franchise. Using our fancy user rating system, the results of this will directly influence our 'best Street Fighter game' list, which we'll be publishing very shortly.

We've tried to include every Street Fighter variant we can think of, as well as a few left-field choices (such as Capcom Fighting Evolution), but if you feel we've left a title out that should be included, drop us a line in the comments to tell us.
