Blankas only got a basic roll

I voted Ryu though it's a bit of a half-hearted vote as I prefer the revisions and Cammy/Akuma. I actually don't think I use any of the original 8 characters in the rest of the series aside from occasionally Chun-Li.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

For me I pick Blanka.

As a kid seeing street fighter for the first time I was watching someone play as him and I remember thinking to myself "wow he can fry people" :lol:

Luckily he is a ok character to use.

Back in the day I enjoyed using Blanka. A kid I knew back then had a SNES with SF2 and after a few shots I worked out exactly how far the rolls went - and he always fell for me doing a roll right up to him (without hitting) followed going right into a head-bite. I think he always went for Ken or Guile at the time.

Ken. He's always been my favourite. Although Honda was my go to guy for a while, especially at the arcade because people always assume he's too slow. I learnt a few combos and then proceded to destroy my friends.
theantmeister wrote:Blanka - he's got to be the most interesting one, anyway. I tend to pick Ryu these days, but Blanka was the character I picked the first time I stood in front of a Street Fighter 2 arcade machine.
I did too! First time I played I picked "the monster" because i thought a monster could beat anyone. Then I lost to Chun Li.

This is a pretty tough question for me... The first character I ever picked was Blanka because he was a monster who could electrocute people! :twisted:
When I got it on my Mega Drive I started to learn to play as Ryu but started to prefer using Ken because of his seriously overpowered Dragon Punch and multi hit hurricane Kick :mrgreen:

I guess I'll go for Ken as I do play as him the most in the original game

If we're talking just SF2 then it's Ryu, as he was the most well rounded and had easy to pull off moves. If we're talking the series as a whole I'd say Chun Li, because I've always preferrred the fast but weak characters over slow but strong

There's no M. Bison on the list so I refuse to vote... :wink:

From the original The World Warrior cast, I'd say Guile is my fave. I like to spam his "sonic boom" projectile attacks and when the enemy gets close use the "blade kick" move or jump behind his back and smash his head upside down. Hate Dhalsim though, unplaylable character for me. Zangief is hard to use too.

With a flattop hairdo that Ivan Drago was jealous of it has to be Guile. That spinning double kick was pretty cool too.

Ken. Could finish game and very hard without losing a round with him but couldn't do it with anyone else. Also has a cool triple hit dragon punch combo on World Warrior that is lethal, knocking 50% of health off and instant stars!

Dhalism for me too, when I first played Street Fighter he felt totally unique compared to other fighting games characters.

Ken. He was ultimately the same as Ryu in Street Fighter 2, and I know thats what this thread is about, but by the time Super Street Fighter 2 came out, he had differentiated himself with the awesome flaming dragon punch....meanwhile, Ryu just had red fireball.

Ryu tries too hard to be cool as well, with his daft endings. Where as Ken "gets the girl"!
