Capcom's Street Fighter Reaches Its Quarter Century

If you played the SNES original, you're officially over the hill
As pointed out by Kotaku, Capcom's seminal Street Fighter series is now 25 years old. The first game - which is also known as Fighting Street and ironically, isn't very good - launched in arcades in 1987.
Of course, it was the sequel Street Fighter II which would make the franchise the blockbuster it is today. The SNES conversion was a defining moment in home video gaming, offering an almost pixel-perfect replication of the coin-op.
These days, the Street Fighter bloodline continues to thrill players, with the likes of Super Street Fighter IV on 3DS and Tatsunoko vs. Capcom on Wii. What's your favourite moment in the Street Fighter lineage? Let us know in the comments section.
