The Top 10 Best Movie Depictions of Video Games

04. City Hunter's Street Fighter Spoof

The first time that we saw this riff on the video game Street Fighter (well, actually while it was certainly a riff and perhaps partly an homage to Street Fighter, it can be said to apply to the entire genre of the Japanese Fighting games - watch the clip above to see what we mean), we lost it.

That is not an exaggeration - most of the gamers I know who are fans of Jackie Chan think this is the best scene in the movie - but then City Hunter is not exactly the best Jackie Chan movie... Just saying.

The reason that this makes our list has more to do with the manner in which Chan incorporates the riff/homage scene with the actual game - and the scene's hyper-extension of the characters.
