    Guile, and I suppose Charlie by default, were my default picks.

    Guy was fun and also that one dude with the grenades and night stick (not so much a "street fighter" at that point, huh?)

    Street Fighter Alpha was definitely the peak of that series, for me. Although I'm REALLY looking forward to Street Fighter 4.

    Character-wise, I got a kick out of Vega. I'm a strict Ryu player though, and of course I had a crush on Chun-Li.

    Dan

    ...

    Okay, so I'm not much of a Street Fighter guy, King of Fighters(Vanessa) and Guilty Gear(Millia) are more my speed. Still, Dan amuses the hell out of me, and so I'll often use him if he's available. Otherwise I've spent a ton of time spamming E. Honda and flopping around badly with everyone else.

    As it happens, I watched the Street Fighter movie this past weekend, for laughs, of course.

    If you can play with Dan effectively, you kick ass.

    Blanca, how can you not love Blance. He's big, green, he has a bright orange mowhawk and studied for years with electric eels to learn to channel voltage through his skin.

    I've always liked the implication that channeling electricity through your skin is a skill that can be learned, like playing the banjo or getting really good at tetris.

    Ryu is totally the best.
    But my friend always beats me with Blanca.

    Also, any Street Fighter that is not Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition is a waste of time. That is arecognized fact.

    What's Warren Ellis's favorite street fighter character?

    Speculate away, minions.

    when i was a kid, the first person i beat SF2 with was Zangief, which was a total fluke.
    seeing him dance with Gorbachev was hilarious to me at the time.
    shortly afterward, i beat it with everyone else.

    typically though, i played with Chun Li but later settled into Ryu.
    i just got the virtual console SF2 for my Wii, and i can feel the addiction bubbling up inside my soul again. can't wait for SF4.

    I would have to say my favorites were either Cammy or Dee Jay.
  7.  (742.16)
    I feel like a complete square, but yeah. Ryu.

    Is it any justification that my SF2 nemesis' character of choice was Ken? To this day if your favourite character was Ken, I am compelled to oppose you. In whatever you do.

    Endless, endless, endless fireball duels [shudder].

    Favourite character? Vega: the hair, the mask, the claws, the tights, the climbing around like a demented spider on the wire fence - if someone turned up to an ACTUAL street fight in that get up, he would have a great many shades of shit beaten out of him by everyone in the vicinity. And that's why I like the wee bastard.

    Favourite character to actually play? Given that I'm crap at fighting games, I'd say it was a toss up between Blanka, E Honda and Chun Li because they all have special moves that can be pulled off by rapidly punching a single button.

    Ryu, i know i know, he's the go-to, back-up, stand-by for Street Fighter, but he's always been my fav. Dee-jay was pretty fun too.

    And @Fractal: I heard a report that they are doing a new Street Fighter movie sentering on Chun-Li. Kristen Kruek from Smallville is supposedly supposed to be cast as Chun....I'll go watch.
