As comical as these sightings have been, the hacker's latest is also their greatest.

The worst title in the Street Fighter franchise? Here's a closer look at Street Fighter: The Movie... which is a game

It must have been when I was about six years old, I can recall an evening at the local Golf N' Stuff arcade with my dad when, as we were making our way toward the exit, I noticed Jean-Claude Van Damme doing flash kicks on an arcade cabinet marked "Street Fighter;" it was the coolest thing my six-year-old, Street Fighter-loving brain could conceive at the time.

I didn't actually get to play it, and couldn't tell you the other games I played that evening, (though I'm sure they were of the fighting genre) but the image of that Street Fighter: The Movie game has stuck with me for a full 23 years and counting.

You know that place of extreme frustration and utter disenchantment that you sometimes go to while playing fighting games? Well it turns out that even the great CYG|Daigo Umehara goes there sometimes too, and did so while exploring Kage in Street Fighter 5.

The answer? Disappointment all around.
