Thanks to the efforts of The Urban Arcade and Retro Reality Gaming, we have two glimpses into the past of Capcom's Street Fighter history. The first video gives a look into an arcade tournament held on 1999, the first year of Third Strike's release whereas the second video is an instructional videotape from the Nintendo Magazine System showing players how to play The World Warrior.

There are humorous pieces in both videos, The first contains Yun players using SA2, people actually picking Twelve, a Q player winning, and Chun-li players doing the same low forward shenanigans as always. The second video has takes on how strong some characters are compared to others while showing some of the more interesting move properties in SF2 (such as Honda's Sumo Headbutt not knocking down).
