      It was one of the best games on the arcade and so I vote on arcade!

      The home versions were crap!

        I have to agree, arcade all the way. One of the only machines that I spent weeks worth of allowance on before I actually beat it.

          Arcade definitely. I can't remember how many weekly allowances I spent on this game.SNES version comes in at a close second though.

            I picked "other" The 3DO version kicked some ass at the time genesis & snes were around. Also, I liked spending my allowance on arcades only till i was about 13 and stopped popping in my hard earned quarters just about after the NES first came out

              Genesis was the best non-arcade version IMO. It even had the intro where that guy punches the other guy's lights out in front of all those people, which wasn't in the SNES version.

                Yeah but the genesis only had 3 buttons didn't it?

                So?

                  You're lying. There's a 6-button controller.

                    Yeah I loved playing the genesis version. You had to press the start button to switch between all punches or all kicks. After a little practice it becomes second nature and really fun. When playing against friends I'd prefer the 3 button. The downside though was you couldnt pause.

                      Same here. The Ps2 version of Street Fighter II is a little hard with the arcade stick but its fun with Street Fighter III.

                          at what point does "arcade" count as a console? Anyway for sf2 I never had an expensive home system and honestly the snes one wasn't up to par with the arcades.

                            The Super Nintendo versions of Hyper Fighting and The New Challengers, because each has their plus and minuses. If I had to go with one I'd say the latter because of more options, more characters, better music, and overall not as repetitive.

                              yeah the new challengers was the first snes version to actually make use of what the snes can really do

                                  Obviously the arcade version is the best, but as far as home console versions... Turbo on SNES.

                                    The SNES version is the only console version I have.

                                      I'd pick The World Warrior on the Super Nintendo and Special Champion Edition on the Genesis.

                                        Ok, yeah, this post is about console versions of the game. Of course everyone likes the original better, but not everyone could afford to have a SFII machine in their house as kids. My personal favorite console version of that game was Street Fighter II Special Championship Edition for the Sega Genesis. It was revolutionary for its time and convinced Sega to create the six-button arcade pads that Genesis fans all know and love.
