For the uninformed (no offense)
ST= “Super Street Fighter II Turbo”
CCC2= “Capcom Classics Collection Volume 2”
SFAC= “Street Fighter Anniversary Collection”
Long story short, after recently receiving my severance pay (don’t ask) I went on a random, unplanned PS2 fighting game splurge and instantly snapped up FG’s I’d been wanting to for a long time. This grab included new copies of SFAC ($50 :sad: ), “Street Fighter Alpha Anthology” ($30), “Art of Fighting Anthology” ($10) and “Fatal Fury Battle Archives Vol.1” ($20). I also got “Capcom Classics Collection Vol.2” because I could not immediately find a copy of “Strider 2” for PS1 (PS1 port of Strider>>>>>CCC2 port of Strider)
I achieved that grab all in one day, and when I finally sat down to look over it I realized I made some mistakes. I horribly failed to realize that:
- I’m the only video game player in my household of two.
- I have no fighting game-playing friends or family within a remotely close radius of my crib.
- I don’t even have a good enough pad, much less a stick to become any better at SF (Neo games play well enough with a PS2 pad) and play it the way its meant to be played
- I OVERPAID for SFAC ($50, original MSRP: $29.99) and to a lesser extent FFBAV1 ($20, should be going for $10 or so by now) and was blinded by the fact that: A) they were new and that B) none of my local GS’s had either in stock, new or used.
Which means that I’m stuck with some compilations that feature overlapping games and have little, if any single-player replay value.
Right now I’m deciding between SFAC and CCC2: I could keep one, return the other, or return both. Which has the most worthwhile version of ST, and is “Third Strike” enough of a reason to keep an overpriced copy of SFAC for, despite me not having anyone else to play it with? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
