Street Fighter II meets Dragon’s Lair courtesy of YouTube.
These progressed to Dragon’s Lair, where instead of reading pages, you were treated to a cartoon where you had to make the choices in a limited time.
Now, with the introduction of hyperlinks into YouTube videos, Patrick Boivin has created a game of Street Fighter II with action figures.
The “game” itself pits you as Guile versus Zangief, Dhalsim or E.Honda, and every time A, B, X, or Y flashes, clicking it quickly enough will allow you to attack your opponent. React too slowly, and you’ll take a hit.
Using stop-frame animation, the figures go through all the moves you’d normally associate with the characters (Guile even combs his hair at the end of a round) but it’s far more an interactive movie than an actual game. Still, the sheer amount of work it must have taken to set up all these shots is quite impressive.
