What is it that makes someone obsess?
The first time I saw Street Fighter II, it felt like something I wanted in my life. I must’ve been 8 or so, and like kids often do, I sat staring at the demo for many minutes. I loved Blanka, because he was a green monster who could electrocute people and he made a really nice monster sound.
Looking back, I wonder if my parent’s disdain for television and videogames fed my love for them. Love what you aren’t allowed? Does that really happen?
