Damn those Turks and their Turkish Delight! Damn them! 
 
Edit: Seriously though, I dunno. His fighting style is odd and he looks equally odd, so that's prolly why.

He is ass.  It's hard for him to oil up and he is terrible without his oil.  He is slightly better in AE, but he will still have a tough time winning.
 
Most characters can get the life lead and just sit there and Hakan can't do anything.

Because he's a greasy Turk? 
 
Note: I mean no offense to any Turkish people even though I should be bitter about what your country did to my country, but it's all in the past so lets hold hands and sing Kumbayah, ok?

But u said all this like this is everyones has issues with hakan, but this doesn't apply to everyone like me, who, like i said before, owns with Hakan online on PS3. I don't  want to start anything but i just disagree with you here. Who do u use on SSF4 then?

I don't hate him. He's super moves are as effective as they are hilarious. But he pretty much controlls like Zangief. And I never liked Zangief to begin with, so he's never been a favorite of mine. He's just not much fun to play with.

I'm not saying you are terrible at the game.  I have played with some people who are good with him.  I'm just saying Hakan is terrible.
 
As for who I use, I use Honda.

I think Hakan is one of the best characters in the game, even though I don't really use him.  
 
Also, I am terribly sorry for bumping this.
