How many times did you run out of quarters and were forced to just wander around the arcade watching other people play and hoping to find an abandoned credit? I hated that time, but now I look back on it fondly. It helped get me excited for the next time I had a pocket full of quarters and allowed me to mentally make a list of what games I would be using the quarters on. One game that got a lot of those quarters was Street Fighter II.
I would watch this Intro for long stretches at a time, visually playing the game in my head and trying to remember the moves. Just hearing the audio is enough to take me back to the arcade.
