Favorite Street Fighter Character?
Mine would have to be Ken. Sure, Ryu maybe be more recognizable as the Street Fighter poster boy, but I find Ken to be a way cooler Character. While Ryu focuses mainly on the Hadoken (going by his Speacils in Street Fighter games) Ken relys more on the Shoryuken. which I like more than the Hadoken (which is more like a Kamehameha fi anything.) Plus, His theme pretty much became THE song for Street Fighter for alot of people. and in my opinon, is one of the songs most Recognizable to gaming. (for me anyway)
Without question, Zangief is my favorite character. Not only do I love everything about his design and how he's evolved over the years (He's a gigantic, bear-wrestling, Russian gay with the most powerful moves in fighting games. Too good.), but he's also the reason why I started taking SF2 seriously when I was a kid. All my friends would play just Ken and Ryu but when I went looking for competition, I saw every character in the roster and realized that I could play whoever I wanted, and thus began a decade+ of practically non-stop Zangief play. Everyone knows I love the dude ... my girlfriend made me a custom Gief toy and I even had him etched into my iPhone.
Runners-up? Hugo from SF3: 3rd Strike comes to mind immediately, not only because I have a certain affinity for the giant grapplers, but because I love all his ridiculous animations. Makoto, also from 3rd Strike is up there mainly because her sprite work is probably Capcom's best. Every frame of her attacks is filled with so much energy and emotion that it's hard not to get excited watching her fight.
Real obscure picks there. Champion Edition obscure! lol
" I like the more obscure Street Fighter characters. Zangief, Dhalsim, Balrog, Sagat, and Bison are my favorites. Don't make me choose beyond that. "
I used to like Ken the most, but in SFIV he is mad gay. So forget him.
