    I'm not a fan of how much resources it takes to fadc. If it is that taxing on meter why bother having it in the game?
    If it took 1/16 of the ultra bar the game would be juicy. Taking regular focus out, making red focus ultra bar dependent and giving everyone...feints like viper.

    And I am no way shape or form capable of THAT character. If ultra was anything like that I'd drool.
    Fuck a winscreen, I'd be glad to witness some madness like that.

    The only bootleg cancel I can say about a sf5 character would be ken, seems like once you activate, you can not move and hope the other guy doesn't get at you before it ends.
    I guess you can call kof bootleg too but When you activate, you get free movement after that slight pause.

    I can't wait for this game to stop headlining and be regulated to side game status. Boring to watch, boring to play. I won't miss this piece of shit.

    As long as there is hype(and mods), then USF4 will never die.
    Just look at 3rd Strike.

    Even if broken, ST and 3s were still good games mechanically which is why they live to this day. Sf4 will live but because it was the first fighter for so many players, it will hold nostalgia for then once they see change.

    Well the primary goal when you engage in a footsies battle is to out space your opponent to create an error so you can punish in a way that allows you to continue to press the advantage. Common examples are whiff punish into knockdown for follow up pressure or mix up, whiff punish into super for high damage while also potentially getting pressure and or mix up afterwards as well.
    False.

    I sincerely enjoy more watching SF4 being played than playing it itself. I still cant get accustomed to 2.5D games that feels wobbly or "weird".

    Gameplaywise I liked it at first when ppl didnt knew the exploits of the engine (OS, Plinks, etc) nut always bothered me the braindead autocorrects and the easy executiuon barrier to do damage for some chars.

    Also WTF Capcoms balance tweaks? "kets make these normals +15 on block and 2 startup, but lets nerf Ryu so Daigo cant win anymore"??????

    Either way, Im most gratefull to SF4 to reignite the FGC, even when the 09ers was a terrible time to be in the forums BUT again... The fire is ON.

    I'm fond of half of ultra if that makes sense. When the following characters are involved ultra feels pretty good:
    Never can go wrong when facing or using:
    Makoto
    cody
    dudley
    hugo
    dhalsim
    ryu and ken
    yun or yang
    poison
    hakan
    Bison
    Dan
    Sakura
    Elena
    Balrog
    Guile
    evil ryu
    charge vega
    ibuki
    chun li
    Juri

    That selection makes the game great.


    Tbh I hate and like it. Is that what you people refer to as salt? I like half of ultra. That selection up there is why I put up with sf4 for that long.
    Didn't put viper there because that should go without saying. She has a feint, goes without saying.

    While I DO have SODIUM HAHAHAHAHAHA half of ultra is nice.

    I only played vanilla, some of ultra and never liked playing it. Characters were slow, neutral wasnt all that fun and playing it never felt natural so i just didnt care about it at all.

    Some matches were fun to watch, i guess?

    But but but but, fadc taking super bar is lame tho.
    Everybody unique now and that shitty ass bootleg cancel is gone.

    Capcom went back to the interesting stuff they did with 2, 3 and alpha 3.
    4 was necessary though. capcom does best when they use a system like vtrigger or isms.
    Although I will say being able to have genei jin and another super aka ultra was funny.

    Yeah
    Dont get me wrong , what you are saying is basically how i felt

    Its just that my post was meant to convey that some of the posts in this thread made me laugh hard

    Buhbye SF4! Thanks for making me interested in SF again after I dropped the franchise back in the late 90s with Alpha 3 (my fav game). SF3 did nothing for me, and SF4 brought me back. It had its flaws, but it revived the entire franchise and the genre. It has earned its place in history.

    Dsp sends chills down the spine with that laugh, impossible.

    But in all seriousness ultra was a polished mess. half the cast was awesome then the other half is well...there.
    Decapre. Really. Gen. Really. Rufus. Fuerte. Really. Thawk. Really. Sf2 thawk is nice, sf4 thawk, what the fuck is that.

    Feilong was nice back in the day too. Real nice. sf2 feilong was fucking nice. But I honestly think if they bring back a karate nigga it should be tony jaa now or a sleeping dogs homage.
    sf5 would probably make fei long, dope again.

    This thread reminds me of when people get drunk and just start shouting out shit they've been holding in for 20 years.

    This game isn't going to die instantly, it's not Call of Duty, where everyone just hops onto he latest one.

    On one side, I can't wait for this game to shift into the background.

    On the other, it was my first real effort into taking a fighting game seriously and doing all I could to be a better player. It awakened the horrible inner-scrub within me through the years, inflated and hurt my ego countless times, endlessly frustrated me with trying to understand what is wrong with me and how I could fix it.

    Couldn't ask for a better preparation for SFV. Not to mention that game made SFV possible in the first place. I'm thankful for that. It was ugly as hell back in vanilla already, it wasn't a game for me, I hated how most of its mechanics worked. But it was a great stepping stone. Exposed me fully to what makes a fighting game.

    Think I still need to flatten my ego some more though. I wrote this crap here and am still enough of a hypocrite to post it anyway. The things you learn about yourself...

    It always had to be in the spotlight reminding me of how shit I am at the only relevant game in the fighting game space. Why couldn't the old outdated game that *I* was good at specifically be the one everyone actually cared about? SF4 requires no fundamentals. Can't wait to shit on all these scrubs in SF5. Though I don't know about that I'm starting to get SF4 vibes from SF5. NP I'll just go back to my main game if I start losi-I mean it ends up being a shit game. SF4, you will not be missed except maybe by baka gaijins and 09ers.

    Fun game that revitalized my interest in the SF series and in 2D fighters in general. With that being said, I'm more than ready to put the game to bed and let SF5 take over.

    I'm surprised by all the anti-SF4 messages. Let's be honest, the scene would be severely different if that game never dropped. I remember when EVO had just over a hundred paid players for 3rd strike and Capcom vs Snk 2. That was pre-SF4. Where are we now? Over 1500 players and a game is dropped if the numbers begin to dip into the lower hundreds. The community was on life support, and ST4 brought waaayyyy more players in than most are honestly admitting.

    Street fighter 4 is probably why xrd and tekken 7 exist, and let's not forget sf5.
    It is an alright game but face it, the game's a fucking placeholder, that we needed so other games could survive.
    Sf4 is what was needed to keep the genre relevant. Sf5 is different.

    Resident evil 5 is probably just as wack as sf4, but unfortunately I like it still.

    Sfxt could've replaced it if it wasn't for the dumb decisions made with on disc dlc fiasco.

    SF4 is certainly the single most important fighting game made in the last decade. That doesn't change the fact that there are a lot of things to dislike about the game.

    Dabbled in fighting games as a child when my dad owned them on Sega Saturn and Super Nintendo, but never truly played them until 2011, when I bought 3rd Strike and KoF98 by chance from an Xbox Live sale, then met some people on the 3rd Strike Online Edition, ran into SRK by chance on google looking for tips on KoF98 and 3S. Then fast forward a year later in late 2012, I got SF4 during the AE12 era, and loved it ever since, even though there was MANY things about this game that catered to bad players that made me rage. Even though I stopped playing this game seriously about a year ago, it's always fun to dabble in now and then to keep my skills sharp. Best part of my career on XBL was making WolfKrone rage quit. :L

    got into sf4 and the fgc at the same time here. saw the daigo parry for the first time as a freshman in college, was my first taste of fgc hype. eventually found the daigo/valle alpha 3 tourney vid when it had like 11,000 views and was blown away by alex's breakdown on the old srk forums of what went down. found out about the umeshoryu on an old st wiki shortly after. and all the hyper fighting/st ogs in the american scene. as an outsider looking in, the fgc exuded mystique. eventually started grinding sf4 on a friend's ps3 and haven't looked back.

    I don't care what anyone says: Street Fighter 4 rocks. I've spent 1000s of hours in it and I will spend more in the future. My favorite game for years.

    Street Fighter V by comparison doesn't look as fun to me, but I haven't played it yet so I can't fairly judge it yet.

    Goodbye to my favorite FG of all-time. Just like all other games, SF4 will slowly fade away until only a handful of hardcore fans are playing it.

    For what it's worth, I enjoyed SF4 for the first 2-3 years. Then I went back to ST and wondered why I bothered playing SF4. For the next couple of years I'd play SF4 only sparingly, in an effort to keep the game with the largest competitive pool 'fresh.' By late 2014, however, I'd had enough of SF4. It just stopped feeling like anything remotely similar to my conception of what Street Fighter is.

    So RIP, I guess.

    Good Riddance.

    I liked Vanilla a lot, but man did the game get old for me quickly. Stopped playing around 2011. Too many updates, too many new characters, too many changes couldn't keep up with it plus the core game just didn't have lasting power with me the way ST, A2, and 3S did.

    V looks amazing and I can't wait. Played it and it's a huge step in the right direction. Before people get mad: opinions.
