Street Fighter 2 - brilliant game, superb characters and was still a beat-em-up back then. Each version since has taken the series into the realms of the shoot-em-up.......

Street Fighter III: Third Strike for me. Incredible game with stunning animation and the awesome parry mechanic.

I thought Alpha was an excellent entry. Loved the setting, the look, the Final Fight crossover and the dramatic battle mode. It was also the sequel that reignited my interest in the franchise after all the SFII milking.

You can’t beat the brilliance and impact of SFII though, so it gets my vote.

I'd personally pick either Super SFIV or SF Alpha 3 but neither are on the list so its probably 3rd Strike for me by default. An excellent sequel and it was refined nicely after a couple of iterations and had a nice cast of new characters. Plus the animation still impresses me to this day.

It has to be specifically SF2 Turbo here for me, perhaps the voting needed to be broken down more? ;)

I have to second SF2 Turbo as it was the game that really got me into the series.

I'd played SF2 but adding the bosses as playable characters just took it to another level.

Street Fighter 2 - It was the most perfect port of an arcade to home console, ever. It may seem slow and sluggish now compared to its faster prequels and sequels, in which case I'd probably say Street Fighter 2 Turbo, but in retrospect, Street Fighter 2 was and still is the most perfect and balanced game of the franchise.

It was between SF2 Turbo & SSF2 Turbo but neither is featured in the poll. In the end, I went for the game that influenced the development of the one on one fighter even today, SF2.

Non of the Street Fighters has got me so excited since Street Fighter II. I think it must have been the joy of playing it for the first time on a home console back in the early 90's. Takes me back to my teenage years, rose tinted specs and all that.

I have recently been playing Super Street Fighter 4 on the Xbox 360. I really like it, but still doesn't give me the buzz that SF2 did back in the day.

I have never understood all the fuss regarding Streetfighter games, they are good games but not the be all and end all they were made out to be when SFII was released. Out of the whole series I still like the Streetfighter Alpha games the best, I love the look of them and for some reason always found them easier to play.

Street Fighter II to be fair is the only game i've given a lot of play to.

Still not a huge fan of beat em ups, some of my mates love them but i just try and press every button in a 'daley thompsons decathlon' manner if i'm playing against a mate hoping to win.

SF2. It improved in all ways on the first, kind of became the karmic root for subsequent editions, those of which never really did much to provide further enhancement in my opinion.
