    Default Didn't know street fighter 2 came out on PC.

    Ha, I just found an old Street Fighter 2 game on 3 1/2 inch floppies. I haven't tried to load it on anything yet, but it has the box book and everything. I'm sure it's not to rare, but the big box looks great in the collection.

    Install it and make back ups before Disk Rot sets in!

    Yeah, Street Fighter I and II both got ported to PC (and I remember stores even packaging them together) and in Street Fighter II's case, it was ported multiple times (there was a Super Turbo port later that came with its own controller, and then later arcade compilations which were just ROMs and an emulator on disk).

    One thing you might want to check and see is if your copy also includes the two PC Mega Man games. That would be awesome for you (kinda... they're not as good as the NES ones but they are a neat thing to have).

    I own the original Street Fighter on PC.

    It's absolute crap. I also have one of the many versions of SF2 on PC (no Mega Man included, wah) and I swear these games are worse than any NES pirate original cart. They're godawful.

    I've heard bad things about SF1 and (original) SF2, but SSF2 and SSF2 Turbo's DOS ports are both pretty solid.

    I own one that came out on disc. It looks like an OEM game that came with a PC. It's awful. Currently trying to get rid of it.

    ... yeah the SSF2 port I have isn't very good. There must've been several versions.

    http://www.scary-crayon.com/games/sf2pc/ is a very nice rundown of SF2 PC and some of its variants.

    The original Street Fighter was also on the ST. The developers re-used the engine for something called Human Killing Machine, immortalized in this beautiful, timeless Ashens review:

    That's pretty close to the boxart of the the one I found. I'm afraid it has no megaman games included though, which makes me very sad.
