This month marks 10 years since the first Marvel VS game, X-Men Vs. Street Fighter was released. The game was a dramatic change to the pace of previous capcom fighters (and fighters in general); having devastating super moves, super jumping, infinites, and generally a super fast feel of play. More VS games were released, including Marvel Vs. Street Fighter, Marvel Vs. Capcom, and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, which is arguably the pinnacle of the series.
I remember when XvSF first came out, although I was still very young and very scrubby, I was still in amazement that X-Men and Street Fighter characters were actually fighting against each other… only in a dream could you imagine that. It is also worth to note that there are some people here that wouldn’t even be playing fighting games if it wasn’t for the VS series… it has definitely come a long way.
