Street Fighter has been around for more that thirty years, let that sink in for a moment and let it make you feel really old. Starting in 1987, there have been a tremendous amount of games and spin-offs since the original arcade game. Capcom recently released, by means of a celebration, the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, a twelve game anthology of key titles from the series history in ‘arcade perfect’ forms with added online functionality. After fighting through the collection in a strange kind of fighting rite of passage, does the collection match the legacy?
