As a TOTAL street fighter ( or any fighting game) newbie, I’m wondering how you pick a character that’s good for you? I understand that ryu and ken are pretty much the first characters I should be using since basic is what they’re all about. But after that how do you decide what character you want to main? I’ve tried my hand at Juri Ibuki and Abel and I thoroughly enjoy them but Abel seems to be favorable for me (not like I can beat my friends who have been playing for years) but it seems that I am able to do more with him than with the other two (leaving Ken and Ryu aside). I have watched the videos by TBird which were greatly helpful in understanding the game and learning how I could improve, but other than doing reps on ryu I don’t entirely understand how else to better myself.
Edit – I realize that through my original question I opened a new question as to how to better myself.
