2D Fighters and the Rough Transition to 3D

prolly shoulda put Sonic the Fighters in this one huh

In a generation lost to rapidly shifting tech, one genre - the 2D fighter - found itself challenged directly by trends and market changes. Street Fighter, King of Fighters, Mortal Kombat even - all of them needed an answer to Virtua Fighter, Soulcalibur, and Tekken. They were visually impressive, they pushed boundaries, and for some reason people didn't care all that much about exceptional spritework anymore. A new wave was crashing.

I know someone's gonna ask, but no that wasn't a dunk on eventhubs, I've been going there every day for 9 years lol.
