lol I’m almost OG! I thought I was. I was 7 or 8 when jump in HK c.HK was cheap… used the hell out of it though.

…Ode to the 2hit combo ftw!

Ha, I remember how geifs SPD was a seekrit move, and weather or not you could do it was some big seekrit. I even remember there being a rumor that in blankas stage geif could spinning pile drive that tree with the snake on it lol.


#6

If you were 14 before sf2 hit arcades…you’re definitely O.G.


#7

i still consider spending quarters as lost opportunities to play sf

Hell yeah, and if you ever front-flipped over the bull in Karate Champ, you are straight-up geriatric. My beard is grayer than shit right now.


#9

If you lost your turn because the guy behind you was Bigger than you… you might be OG.

Fucker always ran me down…then I’d lose, get pissed, get another quarter from mom and play Yie-Ar (or TRY to anyway. Chucka always beat my ass).
