Street Fighter II has been acknowledged as an industry-changing title by the Video Game Hall of Fame.

We already know how important and influential this particular title has been for the genre we love, and it looks like the Video Game Hall of Fame finally agrees. It has been announced today that Street Fighter II: The World Warrior has been inducted into the Video Game Hall of Fame as one of four 2017 selections. A nice nod to this quintessential fighting game, on the 30th anniversary of the franchise!
