I love watching videos on YouTube, but I also like to play video games. Well, the fine people who run the PatrickBoivin YouTube channel have come up with a way to do both at the same time.

Introducing YouTube Street Fighter! It plays just like the arcade version--almost. You get to pick from three characters. On the side of the screen, watch your buttons carefully. When your meter is full, you click on the flashing button to deliver the appropriate strike.

Don’t sit there pondering your next combo too long, however. If you delay too much, your computer opponent will strike back at you, costing you precious energy. Definitely something worth checking out--over 3.3 million viewers can’t be wrong! Stats for YouTube Video Games Trending: Older & Average
