    I don't know if this poll makes me sad or makes me feel old...

    I vote daily on the Poll, and today I voted for the last option...
    I really don't know what it is.
    After Googling it, I found it was a combo with Street Fighter [​IMG]

    You should be ashamed of yourself!

    And it's not a combo, it's a special move [​IMG]

    I blame the advent of the Home Console, particularly the 3D era consoles. Back when arcades were the bomb everyone had played street fighter, and everyone knew what a Shoryuken was.

    It's also partly because all of the 3D Releases of Street Fighter have been shit, but maybe SF4 will enlighten people now? I mean we're seeing oldies from the best SF Games (stuff like II Turbo and Super Street Fighter) like Blanka, Honda etc

    And is Shoryuken REALLY that hard to do consistently? I found Dhalsim's Teleport and Chun-Li's fireball much harder to do consistently.

    It's partly mainly because the majority of people who use GameFAQs are children.

    My secret gaming shame: I've been on GameFAQs.

    The freaking Shoryuken (as well as the Hadoken) are even present as weapons in the Worms series!

    How could you not know what they are?!

    I didn't know either so I just voted the last option. I thought it was a joke poll to be honest.

    They're given different names though I guess.

    Wow. I'm saddened, but not surprised by that poll. But then again, The Smurfs are a dying breed as well. Kept alive only in memories. And Family Guy. (Yea, she smurfed me.)

    I have none of that shame, except for the time I spent an hour getting the Hadoken ability in Mega Man X.

    I guess Street Fighter isn't as popular as it used to be...

    I got suspended from school in 7th grade for giving a dragon punching (sic) my friend in front of a teacher. It was worth it.

    its definatley not as popular, but looking in the GBA super street fighter II turbo revival manual, the moves arn't even named how they sound in japanese.. I was expecting to see hadokens in there but the move list for ryu is called

    fireball
    dragon punch
    hurricane kick
    and the hadoken is called the 'Shakunetsu Hadaken'

    what the hell is a hadaken??

    The super combo is called the Shinku Hadaken [​IMG]
