[QUOTE] Blathering: Sometimes I get the feeling that with SF, we've ran into something like what comic book companies like Marvel had to deal with: you've got a bunch of faithful who've kept up with all the storylines of some characters for years, and want more story built up with that knowledge and background. On the other hand, you have a bunch of kids who aren't going to know what the hell is going on if they're thrust into that kind of story, and need to start from the beginning. And of course you've got some people who just know of the thing, and little more. No matter what they do there's going to be people unhappy. But if I were tasked with making an SF that will serve as an entry point for all kinds of people who have had little or no exposure to the game, as much as I love SF3 I don't think I'd do it with SF3's cast. I also don't know how many people are enough of a genius to be able to do it with a completely new roster... though if they did, there'd be little point in calling it Street Fighter in the first place. [/QUOTE] I actually thought of this before, but didn't post my thoughts for some reason. You probably put it better than I would have anyway. The above mentioned mindset is why the iconic comics characters don't change much. At one point Commissioner Gordon wasn't a Commissioner anymore, but he was brought back because due to the cartoon series and movies he's too well associated with the Batman mythos. At one point (actually at a bunch of points) Norman Osborn was killed off, but he was brought back because he's one of Spidey's most well known rogues. I'm sure alot of the "hardcore" fighting game fans would love to see some big changes in the SF cast, but apparently Capcom is willing to take the risk of alienating those who recognize the characters as they are.
