As a tall, skinny adolescent, I often played as Dhalsim, because it gave me hope that I could kick ass too.
When I actually wanted to play to win, I was Guile. Serious badass right there.
Whenever any shit-talking about 2 player went down, the truest test of skill between two players was Ryu vs. Ken.
Am I the only one that thought it was hilarious that E. Honda's special move was the pimp hand?
