Wisdom from Street Fighter

In 1987, Capcom unleashed a new challenger to the halls of gaming arcades. Staring a martial artist by the name of Ryu, the polished, tactical six button fighting game would soon transform the world of beat'em'ups, with the success of 1991's Street Fighter II confirming that the Japanese publishers had a champion on its hands.

A staggering 28 years on and the Street Fighter series is still the undisputed king of combos, with Ultra Street Fighter IV the latest title to exercise gamers' thumbs. We've collected together our favourite words of wisdom from some of the many fighters who've stepped into the SF arena: from wise words to brutal brags, there's something to learn from each of these.

Let us know if we've missed any of your favourite words of wisdom in the comments below.
