"Has taken more quarters from children than every bully combined." ~ Honest Game Trailers - Street Fighter
From the studio that hates Mega Man as much as you love it [Capcom] comes the game that has taken more quarters from children than every bully combined.
Because your Mom wouldn't let you play Mortal Kombat, get ready for the other fighting game. In a franchise that's all about travelling the world and beating the ever-living s*** out of foreigners! In an epic story that absolutely no one cares about! [Punching] Whoo hoo! Combos!
With a series spanning 25 years, every one has their favorite version, like: the first one, which exists... apparently...; the second one, over, and over, and over, and over, and over again; the anime ones; the virtual fighter ones; the one from the video you've seen a million times [Meme]; some spinoffs; the one you have to keep buying; the one based on the movie based on the game, the game; and everyone's actualy favourite - YouTube videos of the sprites kicking people's asses! [Sprite hits a cute cat. Sprite kicks a kid into a pool. Sprite punches a piano-playing woman's face.]
Pick from a huge cast filled with iconic characters, like: the Japanese guy who taught you how to spam fireballs; the Chinese girl who never skipped leg day - Mmm! Thighs!; and Every. Stereotype. Ever. See, this is what happens when you never leave Japan, Japan!
Challenge opponents that range from a punch-up-baby easy, to more unfair than the U.S. prison system, to a... car? What that car ever do to you? Before taking your game online to face your ultimate opponent: the lag! Pour your heart and soul into the latest edition, til you're good enough to enter a tournament, where you'll lose to the best players in the world, who you could wreck in an actual street fight! So get hyped when you win. Get salty as f*** when you lose -- just don't be this girl [Crying guy: "I won the money match, people, so I could get them take it seriously, because my money was on the line. And because it was f****!"]

What is he saying?! Something about pound-cake?
Honest Game Trailers - Street Fighter has a 98.9% approval rating from YouTube viewers. Caleb Reading of Uproxx highlighted the "special voiceover appearance by the voice of Ryu himself, Kyle Hebert." Reading noted, "We don’t know how they managed to limit this video to such a quick, entertaining summary when there’s so much Street Fighter lore that’s easy to parody and even easier to edit into fail videos." Blair Marnell of Nerdist found the video notable for pointing out "Capcom’s addiction to Street Fighter variants and a lot of the franchise’s other issues." Marnell also commented, "We don’t necessarily agree with the video’s assertion that everyone’s favorite Street Fighter is watching the sprites beat up people on YouTube. But it is funny!"
