I just came across this series of articles, and figured they were worth sharing:

Probably not as complete as it could be (off the top of my head Ryoko Kano from Fighter's History could have also been mentioned as a double reference to people not mentioned in the articles), but still an interesting read for those curious about the origins of the fighting game genre.


The index to the guy's articles - a bit too SF-centered though -  is here: http://www.capcom-unity.com/bigmex

You say he's too SF-centered when his site is hosted on "Capcom Unity?"

Not a problem and kind of expected - just means that other games might be worthy of similar analysis outside of that particular series.
Also, by the look of some links, it was once hosted elsewhere, 1up or something iirc.
