Original post edited to include: Nickel City in Miramar now has Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition and Street Fighter Alpha 3. I have been here twice in the last month to play both of these, as these are two of my fav all time SF’s.

there’s an alpha 3 cab at centre laundry on el cajon blvd


there’s a SF2 Hyper Fighting at the Filiberto’s in Vista.

960 E Vista Way, Vista, CA 92084

The sticks and buttons are a bit iffy. Tried both sides, same results on 1P and 2P. I was still able to 1cc it, over 1M points, and it seemed to be set to maximum difficulty.

Hyper fighting at coin-op has had some decent comp. lately. Also I believe the multicade at Berkeley Pizza on 30th has SF games on it.

That’s good there’s some comp now. I live in Serra Mesa and go to North Park all the time. Been to coin op like a few times and seen nobody on that old man’s game.

I was at Coin Op a couple months back on a Saturday. The place was hopping. I had only been there on Sundays prior, and it’s a whole different environment when it’s packed on a Saturday…like the arcades of old.

There were 3 or 4 guys rotating on the HF machine, which I quickly took control of. I give those guys credit, they kept coming back until realizing there was no hope. This old man had his day in the sun on that day. :smiley:
