Street Fighter III: New Generation (CPS3, 1997)
"Fighting is my nature." 

They called it a new generation, and it truly was. It had been three years since the last installment of Street Fighter II, and with the Street Fighter Alpha and EX games taking up arcade space alongside SFII, Capcom was saturating the market with 2D fighters, and was in serious danger of edging themselves right out of the market.

Their solution, naturally, was to make another Street Fighter game.

With its oddball cast, silky-smooth graphics and updated hardware, New Generation seemed poised to take the arcades by storm… Or, at least, it would have, if the public hadn’t been completely sick of 2D fighters by that point, heralding the violent death of arcades across America.

This didn’t stop Capcom from putting out a further two revisions of Street Fighter III, though, one of which has gone on to be praised as perhaps the finest Street Fighter game ever made.
