Streets of Rage was trash?
Are you sure you are ok?
I don't know if its some shit emulation but I played it like 2 months ago, on the Mega Drive, and it was still a blast.
Maybe, could have been the ps3/360 or perhaps the controllers or maybe my perspectivr in 2011/2012 but it did not feel good or as close to as I remember. Just was't fun to play. I remember playing Wolfenstien OG port on ps3 around the same time and loved it to bits so it wasn't the retro vibe. believe they are now on PSN on ps4, perhaps I'll give some of them another go along with SoR.
Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!
