Afternoon Quickie: Street Fighter

So... I won't limit myself to any specific Street Fighter as I have basically the same opinion of them all. Street Fighter is how pasty-faced gamer boys get out their aggression. These boys aren't going to go out and start fights all West Side Story style (they don't have the grace nor the body to pull off the tights). So what do they do? They mash buttons. If they're in an arcade, they mash bigger buttons. Street Fighter, I would say if anger management for the gamer crowd. Supposedly there is some sort of story, but who knows what it is. There's a lot of noise and not of all it is in English. Most of the time, they're just yelling at each other (the snapping and songs from West Side).  Now, the game has some risque parts. When one of the girls jumps up, you get a panty shot (compare this to the low-cut shirts of the Puerto Rican chicas). Basically what I'm saying is that Street Fighter is like a Japanese game version of West Side Story. No one knows why the characters want to fight each other, but they do and they make a lot of noise in the process.

Now to sit back and watch all the gamer's freak out that I just compared one of the most beloved video games of all time to a musical...
