YouTube content creator Chris Le explored this idea by animating a two minute video that shows Counter-Strike as a fighting game.
He calls it CS: GO Fighter Alpha, and it's built to resemble the latest Street Fighter games, from the text down to the UI. It was made over the course of two months, and includes a stage select along with loading screens and a battle between a Counter-Terrorist and Terrorist on de_dust2.
