I became aware of the ''Street Fighter'' series after ''[[Street Fighter II: The World Warrior]]'' had become popular among my circle of friends, around 1992. Several of my friends were playing it at arcades or on their SNES or Genesis. My brother borrowed the original SNES release and we played it together. At first, I didn't like the game because my brother was a lot better than me at it, and I kept losing. However, since a lot of my other friends were also playing the game, I kept at it. Around 1993, I bought ''[[Street Fighter II: Turbo - Hyper Fighting]]'' for my SNES and played it a lot. I became better at it than most of my friends, but I still had a hard time beating the cheating AI. After getting really frustrated by it one day, I broke my cartridge. I had played several other knockoff games, but always liked Street Fighter II the most. I remember seeing when ''[[Super Street Fighter II]]'' had come out and played it a couple times at a friend of a friend's, but, after getting annoyed with the horrible AI of fighting games in general, I never bought another one. I haven't played the bulk of the Street Fighter library since then.

Street Fighter is a fictional universe created by Capcom. It first began with an arcade game released in 1987 and slowly ballooned into a series of video games, cartoons, comics, films, and various other forms of media.

I became aware of the Street Fighter series after Street Fighter II: The World Warrior had become popular among my circle of friends, probably around the end of 1992. I first played it after my brother borrowed the original SNES release from a friend, and we played it together. At first, I didn't like the game because my brother was a lot better than me, and I kept losing. However, several of my friends were playing the game too, and it was appearing in a lot of gaming magazines, so, I kept at it. I got a demo released of the DOS port around 1993, and eventually bought Street Fighter II: Turbo - Hyper Fighting for my SNES and played it a lot. I became better at it than most of my friends, and even beat the AI for four different characters. However, I kept getting frustrated with the cheating artificial intelligence, and eventually broke a controller and my cartridge in a fit of rage. I've played a couple of the other releases like Super Street Fighter II, and various games that feature the Street Fighter characters, but I lost interest in the franchise by the mid-1990s.
