Very cool article on the history of fighting games

Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Smash Bros. and Beyond: The Ultimate History of Fighting Games

The past few days I’ve been reading this article bit by bit, watching chunks of the linked videos and so far it’s a great journey for somebody who has very little experience in fighting games. I’m especially amazed SNK had so many fighting games besides Fatal Fury and KOF.

I would recommend also to take these chapters at face value, and read one per day. If you’re meaning to check the videos, this will be a long article that will take a month to read through.
