[QUOTE] fan-favourites Sagat-Sakura-[b]Hakan[/b] fan-favourites Sagat-Sakura-[b]T.Hawk[/b][/QUOTE]I just needed to reemphasize something hilarious and important and excellent. [QUOTE]"who the hell are these characters and where is Sagat"[/QUOTE]It's true! In addition to freeing us from SFIV, SFV season 2 also wins the award of merit for helping recreate the nostalgic joy of hating SFIII's characters, here in the present day! Too bad it's not more technically competent and [b]this [/b]game's mostly dreary new characters aren't at least drawn by Kinu and Akiman like III's, but it's [i][b]still[/b][/i] more fun than the parry-blocking system. It's funny how based on the quality of the cultural/martial arts basis for a new SF character that we've talked about before, you can generally tell who will last. Like, no focus group was required to figure out that El Fuerte and Abel and Remy wouldn't last where Laura might (though this does not explain the mystery of Juri's reappearance). [QUOTE]Years from now, though? Who knows. Wait for it all to die down so that people can take an objective look at the game again instead of throwing up their hands and lamenting that we're stuck with it and chasing the ghosts of classic characters. [/QUOTE]Gojira's point here really points to the bind Capcom's in. I love playing SFV, but frankly what it has going for it is that it's the most modern entry in a long-running series, but once that newness wears off, there are better Street Fighters (SFII, SSFIIX, Zero 2, Zero 3, and [i][b]fine[/b][/i], I guess SFIII (I'll eat my vegetables)). Short-term, people will be annoyed without their favorite characters, and long-term, even if SFV gets more cohesive and people come around to the new chararcters, it's too late because among retro Street Fighters, SFV will be destined to lose.
