Top Five EVO moments in Street Fighter history

Twenty-five years of Street Fighter.

On August 30, 1987 the first Street Fighter game was released by Capcom. Little did anyone know that this would be the beginning of perhaps the best fighting game series in the history of gaming. Just as unbeknownst to all was a strong community waiting to explode.

The fighting game community (FGC) has grown quite a bit since the 1990s. Things went from bets in Arcades to HD streams with thousands of dollars hanging in the balance. Then there's the mecca of all fighting game tournaments, Evolution (EVO).

In honor of the 25th anniversary of Street Fighter, lists the top five EVO moments in Street Fighter history.

In we go:

Quick Pic: Capcom officially hits 25th anniversary of Street Fighter

Twenty-five years. That's how long Street Fighter has been around. The series is older than I am, which is hard to believe since I feel like a veteran of the franchise minus the skills. Congratulations Capcom, this day, August 30, 2012 belongs to you.

SFxT: "Online Warrior" episode #16 (Video)

Maximilian has returned to Street Fighter x Tekken (SFxT) for the 16th "Online Warrior" episode of the game. Max talks about the community with the game and titles this episode, "This Game Won't Die!?"

Fernando's POV: The PS3 version of SFxT must have way more players online than the Xbox 360 version because finding a match can be a chore at times. I also suffer from extremely wonky lag online, mainly input lag and the sound still suffers problems. I'm getting the feeling that Max is defending Capcom fighters way too much. As it is, Capcom has had many Evo games over the years. Leaving SFxT out won't be the end of the world.
