Before I look at or review anything, I am just going to say this in regards to "future games":

Karin, KARIN, MOTHERF*CKING KARIN! >o

*suppresses rant relating to how a FG return in SFxT as Sak's partner was damn wasted >.<*

I know about the "complications", but.....damn it qq

On a more productive note, specifically on the Street Fighter front, I believe Juri, C. Viper, Abel, and Hakan are great additions to the franchise and are deserving of returning rolls in future rosters ;)

Nothing against the other SF4 exclusive cast members, but those are just the ones I like the best personally.

#19
shekeib said on February 5, 2013 at 1:36 p.m.

ABSOLute said on February 5, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

An immeasurable amount of people use Ryu in just about every Street Fighter game, but no one seems to like him as a character. Huh.
Anyway, I voted for:
Karin
Urien
Rose
Vega
Ibuki

I use M. Bison also, but I don't think he'll be going anywhere, regardless of the results.

#36
triplefierce said on February 5, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

Retsu!! You get 5 votes fellas, spare one for him. Don't let him languish in obscurity, he needs to be updated same as Adon and Gen!

#37
Frewleftshoe said on February 5, 2013 at 1:47 p.m.

Q is my favorite SF character but I'm so afraid that if they bring him back that they will totally ruin his mysterious storyline =\.

I realized most of my SF favorites are blondies!

1. Ken
2. Alex
3. Charlie
4. Gill
5. Gen

Really hard pick for five. I love Vega, Makoto, and Dudley almost as much.

Anyway, I hope they aren't taking these polls too seriously. If Capcom had based everything on marketing research years ago, we wouldn't have had the SF3 cast, which I've come to enjoy a lot more over overall compared to the classic World Warrior roster. I hope Capcom intends to bring us some more new characters in the future. I applaud them for taking risks on guys like Hakan.

#49

jme said on February 5, 2013 at 1:53 p.m.

No one should pick ryu, ken, akuma and chun li. Those 4 are auto in in every SF.
So with that in mind I picked:
Charlie
Balrog
Urien
Q
Rolento

#51

For Capcom, the day gamers graced this poll with their responses is the most important day in its existence... for Bison, it's Tuesday.

3. Hugo
4. Juri

I know a lot of people don't like Q, and I get that, but I just can't not love him for whatever reason. :3

In no order:

1. Cody
2. Oni
3. Sakura
4. Makoto
5. Dudley

I'm glad to see they are doing this survey, and I'm especially glad to see a good amount of Cody love in the comments. Not much love for Oni, huh? My reasons for voting for him are

1) His moveset is pretty unique for being classified as a "shoto"

2) He's super fun to play as. All those air raging demon setups are so cool. If Oni doesn't return in later installments, I at least hope his moves are passed along to another character.

#77
