I have fond memories of waiting in line at Maxwell Pizza waiting for a game of Street Fighter on the cabinet. I endured the stomach tickling arrangement of burnt pizza and BO to throw my quarter down and reserve my spot to play the most gorgeous fast paced game I had ever seen. I had the chance recently to replay the original SF at a local BK Subs and thought I'd relive the glory days only to find that the fast paced game I had loved was replaced by slow moving pixel art roughly the resolution of an animated gif. Things had not aged well, however I'm sure the game could retort that I hadn't either.
