Distracted

I'm a sucker for Street Fighter. I was introduced to SF2 in High School, and spent countless hours in with arcade buddies after school, trying to get better and better at it. I used to love holidays, when moms would dump their kids in the arcade with fists full of quarters, because it meant I had a long line of people to defeat, allowing me to play for hours on a single quarter. There are a lot of things I miss about those days.

Street Fighter 4 felt like the game I knew and loved, nicely updated. I played the hell out of it, picking Gen because he seemed so odd, and even got into the SLC SF scene, playing in tournaments, and against some truly great players. It was tons of fun.

Recently I decided to pick up Super Street Fighter 4 and check out the new characters. I've been distracted, going through the trials with every character to get a feel for new characters and satisfy my completionist urges, but I'm terrified to actually play the game because I already know how it will consume me. I think I'll start up Heavy Rain instead.
