Honestly I am more into Mortal Kombat than I am Street Fighter. My boyfriend actually does competitive gaming and plays Mortal Kombat but we do watch the competitive Street Fighter matches on stream out of bordem. I personally have only played the old ones but have watched people play this one. I have never really liked the graphics in Street Fighter and I feel like there is always way to much going on for my mind to wrap around! Personally not for me but a lot of people all over the world play this religiously and enjoy it! To his his own!
