My personally is Alpha 1, I've had it since it first came out on Saturn, and I really love the normal attack combos. And because Guy Pwnz!

    A3 for me. World tour mode on the psx stole the show.

    That's Street Fighter Alpha 3 Upper basically.

    So everyone who has the Alpha 3 for Saturn and PSX(Playstation 1), if you choose that alpha 3 instead of the arcade alpha 3, please choose Alpha 3 Upper, since that is the one with the extra characters like Deejay, Evil Ryu, Shink Akuma, Guile, etc.

    alpha 2 by far.

    aside from the marvel series, no other street fighter game comes close.

    Although A2 will always have a special place in my heart, at the end of the day I prefer to play A3. And since I'm cool with either version, I picked normal A3 over Upper to even the chances a bit.

    A3 CPS2 original. Got one in the shop on a 29" candy cab, and I play that thing at least once a day. Good times.

    The amount of votes for Alpha 3 Upper is already surprising me.

    My vote goes to Alpha 3 tho, I fucking love that game.

    I think the real question is...how come no one has voted for A2 Gold over A2?

    PSX and DC versions of A3 were effectively Upper weren't they? I'm going Upper over plain A3 coz Guile and T.Hawk... wouldn't be the same without em.

    I bet most of the people voting for Upper haven't even played it. :confused:

    Console versions are not upper.

    This is a really hard one for me. I love the superiority of A3, but A2 Saturn was the first SF I REALLY got into. It was my mother game, so to speak. But I did leave her behind..... I'm going to have to say A3. I just like the overall apearance of it better, like the anouncer, fight screens, loads; although I did come accustomed to A2's super screens. Also the game's just superiour... More characters, more veriety, recovery, it all just makes the game better, it also runs a bit smoother I think. Edit: Also one button super activation > A1/2.

    Don't get me wrong, A2 is an awsome game, I just think A3's one step ahead.

    Alpha 2 and then in a close second Hyper Alpha (A2 was the game that made me continue in the fighting game world)

    Maybe Hyper Alpha will replace all the Alpha games in a close future (maybe)

    Reason A2 was liked more was that A2G made some unpopular changes, like making the Flash Kick airblockable and the SPD slower.

    On HSFA I tend to play a modded SFA2 (I use supers A3 style, and Customs A2G style, with no airblocks)
    Just wish there was a way to disable customs entirely.

    alpha 3 with alpha 2s music, presentation, sound effects, etc would have been top tier IMO

    alpha 3 upper, i think the new juggling system of alpha 3/ alpha 3 upper is what really put it ahead of alpha 1 and 2. i;m choosing alpha 3 upper over alpha 3 b/c of the new characters and backgrounds

    Because A2G is actually more balanced? I liked most of the "unpopular" changes, and Chun-Li needed to be nerfed.

    And I voted for A3U, so you can guess what that means as well. Because, although I do like V-ism, I didn't like it utterly dominating every aspect of the original A3 that wasn't named A-Dhalsim. Both V-ism and Dhalsim got knocked back to earth in A3U, allowing for more gameplay balance and variety.

    Although A2 has the most votes, A3/A3U got more votes than A2/A2G. I voted for A3U but if the votes were only A1, A2, or A3 I would vote for A3. Maybe we should do a second poll with just A1, A2, and A3?

    Man why is this so difficult. It is obvious that Hyper Alpha Street Fighter is the best game. Even if I am not fighting one of my friends, I can still random battle for about 200 battles straight. Good Times

    I had alpha 3 for psx and its horrible!! dee jay hawk guile and others are not worth it.
    So im for alpha 3 then alpha 2 then HSFA(cause you can pick shin bison:lovin: )

    btw ive never really played a lot of alpha 1 and I hear a lot of Guy??
    what makes him so great?

  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    I enjoy the first Alpha the most.
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    HSFA is my favorite because it lends the most options and you can basically play any character from any Alpha game.

    A3

    Playing A1 and A2 after being so used to the A3 engine is like having steak without the A1... yeah...
  • SystemSystem Joined: Posts: 508,676 admin
    Alpha 3 Owns!!!

    I think SFA3 is the best of the Alpha series. Especially the SFA3 special edition in Streetfighter Alpha Anthology which basicly sounds like ya'll describe SFA3 Upper to be. I never played SFA3 Upper but I guess the special mode for SFA3 in SFA3 Anthology must be that SFA3 Upper ya'll talk about. I've seen Evil Ryu, Shin Akuma in it and more.

    Anyway the SFA 3 engine is the best of the whole Alpha series. More fighting options and more specials. Graphics, counters, crossovers, combo's and sequances are far superiour to SFA1 and SFA2.

    I voted for SFA3, it's mass of characters, well tuned gaming engine and the sheer skill needed to play it makes it a great game. The fact that it's still being played and included in tournaments is proof of how good the game is, it's been almost 8yrs since it's release.

    but everything else in alpha 3 is better.

    A2 did have some better BG's compared to A3

    But A3 is still my fave

    I'm surprised that Alpha 2 has so many votes, I was amazed that A2 was in the lead because there is always so many people talking about A3 in srk, the thing is that there is many people that enjoy more the "alternate versions" of A2 and 3: Gold and Upper, so it's fair to have all the Alpha games in the same thread for each user to vote.

    I never enjoyed A3 (it's a question of taste) and even if I play less fighting games today A2 is still my fav fighter, I'm just surprised that srk has much more people who enjoy A2 than what I tought (and that is a big thumbs up) :tup:

    To the poster above= ^_~

    To the topic:
    I like A3 the most. But understand what people have with A2. The better music, the better stages, mostly everthing is very cool there. But it lacks in some points. Mainly the deep and nearly perfect A3 game engine. And all the A3 characters like Karin, Mika etc. especially Juni.

    It fun learning this game, it's fun playing it. it's fun do train VC's, it's fun to learn match ups your not familiar with. So much fun, lol ^^

    I can play it for hours and don't get bored. It's the game I can play the most charas. All those points let me feel free playing A3. In 3rd for example I feel more like being closed up. Don't like the feeling of the game, don't like how the normals feels like you can't cross-up with everyone. I just don't feel this free.

    A3.

    I felt the fighting engine was more refined than A2, and they brought back the old characters (Blanka, Vega), which was pretty cool.

    A2 Then Hyper Alpha.

    A2 is the shit. Hyper is all of them being able to play with every character for m every revision.

    I hate A3. Just didn't feel it. Im a 3s man anyways.:bluu:

    As of right now I vote for Alpha 2. But that mainly comes from the fact that I have yet to really sit down and learn any of the in's and out's of A3. From the little I have played though I love the way it feels and handles. Music and all is not as good as A2 but I usually wear headphones while playing anyways so it's not a big issue to me.
