The original ''Street Fighter Alpha'', as well as ''Alpha 2'', ''Alpha 3'' and ''Gem Fighter'' are ported from their original arcade releases, while ''Alpha 2 Gold'' is a remixed version that combines elements from the previous console version and the Japanese arcade release ''[[Street Fighter Alpha 2#Arcade|Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha]]''. The version of ''Alpha 2 Gold'' allows players to select [[Cammy]] in all the game modes, including the single-player "Arcade Mode" (in which she is given her own storyline and ending), not just Versus and Training. The soundtracks for each game are from the arcade version, with the exception of ''Alpha 2 Gold'', which uses the arranged soundtrack from the PlayStation version. The original ''Alpha'' gives player a choice between CPS and CPS II-style soundtracks, the former based on the CPS Changer version of the game.

All the games in the compilation includes the standard Arcade, Versus and Training modes, as well as Survival mode and "Dramatic Battle" for the ''Alpha'' games. The "Dramatic Battle" mode featured in the original ''Alpha'', ''Alpha 2'' and ''Alpha 2 Gold'' is the same one featured in the Japanese arcade version of ''Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha'', allowing players to create their own team of characters and fight against a specific series of opponents ([[Adon]], [[Sagat]], [[M. Bison]], and [[Akuma]]). The original Dramatic Battle mode from the first ''Alpha'', which features [[Ryu]] and [[Ken]] against Bison, is still available in the game as a secret feature.

In addition to the default games, this compilation also includes ''Street Fighter Alpha 3 Upper'', based on an updated arcade version of ''Alpha 3'' released in Japan that includes the extended character roster from the console versions of the game. Neither the original ''Alpha 3'', nor ''Alpha 3 Upper'', includes the "World Tour" mode introduced in the PlayStation version of ''Alpha 3'' nor any of the additional characters in the portable versions of ''Alpha 3''.

After the player completes all the default games (as well as ''Alpha 3 Upper'') at least once, a second secret game titled ''Hyper Street Fighter Alpha'' will become available. Based on the same concept employed in ''Darkstalkers Chronicle'' and ''[[Street Fighter II#Hyper Street Fighter II|Hyper Street Fighter II]]'', ''Hyper Alpha'' is a Versus/Training Mode-only version of ''Alpha 3'' where the player can select between different versions of the characters featured in the ''Alpha'' games. ''Hyper Alpha'' also features secret fighting styles in addition to ones featured in ''Alpha 3'' as well as a soundtrack that not only spans the ''Alpha'' series but includes music from the earlier ''Street Fighter II'' and ''Final Fight'' games.

The Japanese version of the compilation, ''Fighters' Generation'', differs slightly in its content of games. The Japanese version of the compilation features each of the ''Street Fighter Zero'' arcade games, with the Japanese arcade versions of ''Street Fighter Zero 2'' and ''Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha'' as part of the default lineup. The US version of ''Street Fighter Alpha 2'', as well as ''Street Fighter Zero 2 Dash'' (the Japanese version of ''Alpha 2 Gold'') as secret "arranged" versions of ''Zero 2'' and ''Zero 2 Alpha'' are featured in the Japanese compilation due to their additional characters (Evil Ryu in the US ''Alpha 2'' and Cammy in ''Zero 2 Dash''). In the North American and PAL version of the compilation, the default versions of ''Alpha 2'' and ''Alpha 2 Gold'' are the same as their "arranged" counterparts in the Japanese compilation.

In the main menu, the Japanese compilation uses the same illustrations that were used in the sales flyers promoting the original arcade versions, while the Western versions of the compilation uses the art used for the American flyers. Since ''Alpha 2 Gold'' was never released for the arcades in North America, the cover artwork of ''[[Street Fighter Collection]]'' (which features the ''[[Super Street Fighter II]]'' renditions of Ryu, [[Chun-Li]] and Cammy, as well as the other "New Challengers" who were not in ''Alpha 2 Gold'') was used instead.
