West Coast/East Coast and Beyond: Regional Styles Discussion Thread

So I’ve been into fighting games for a while and I’ve always wondered what are the differences between regions when it comes to play style? I mean when SFIV Vanilla first came out Balrog was supposedly a west cost thing.

Does where you live factor into your play style? Does where you live help you pick certain characters. Hell maybe which games you play?

Tell me Shoryuken! I must know!
