CVS2, Rival Schools, Third Strike, MVC2 and a LOT more; this epic, blast from the past combo video features 60 different fighting games

Scrolling through our more recent posts, you may notice we're on something of a Street Fighter 5 binge. While we're absolutely loving playing, discussing and delving into the new game, a little variety is always nice.

We use the term "little" very loosely, as the video we have here for you features no less than 60 different fighting games, (yes SF5 is in there as well,) from over the years.

The nostalgia you'll get from seeing a few of these titles is reason enough to give this combo collection a watch. Take a look at this Chun-Li sequence from Tatsunoko vs. Capcom... which does over 25 billion damage:
