Favorite Fighting Game and Char?

First thread, yay!

Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way we can go on with the real topic. We’ve all got our favorite fighting games and characters. 2D & 3D, what are your favorites?

My favorite 2D fighter is easily Street Fighter 3: Third Strike with Street Fighter Alpha 3 coming in at second. Ryu and Akuma are EASILY my favorites, I guess I’m a sucker for Shotos.

As for 3D, I haven’t played Tekken 5 yet for some odd reason some I’m just going to go ahead and say Tekken 4 with Kazuya, Jin, and Paul being my favorite chars.

Oh, I almost forgot. If this has been done before then just lock this or ignore it.

Why thank you, I will.
