Why aren't you rating the arcade versions?
Also you should bold Special Champion Edition for the Genesis, it's a fantastic port that offers two modes, one based on Champion Edition and one based on Dash, and it has a group mode that makes it a very unique version of the game. It's a favorite among Sega Genesis fans.
Because then I'd have to organize all the games by console which I was not
nor will ever be willing to do, I mean, seriously, I'm not even willing to put forth that much effort for a school project.
I did bold that one, there's two Championship games for Sega Genesis, I bolded the latter one because I believe it had the Turbo mode, which at the time was considered the closest you'll get to the arcade (and lots of folks believe the SNES version to be a broken translation, though I still have that one in the same tier as the highly superior Genesis version only because it's considered a must have for the SNES, so I don't know what the fuck I'm doing). I originally orange bolded that one before I decided that the tier rankings should be based upon how well they adapted the original arcade versions, which I found the only ones that are considered better translations were Marvel vs Capcom 2 and Third Strike for the Dreamcast.
I just assumed everyone else would assume the arcade versions were the dominate ones, so I didn't bother ranking them. It's very difficult to rank these games seeing they have so many translations that are so incredibly different from one another. For instance, SF - The Movie for arcade and PS are considered some of the worst fighting games in history, but the Saturn version is considered a pretty damn solid game (but nothing compared to the other games, so I only regular bolded it instead of oranged it, something just wouldn't smell right had I done that).
EDIT: Oh wait, there is only one Genesis Street Fighter, didn't realize they were the same fucking game, just different modes. Damn, that's confusing.
