Wait wait wait. I gotta get in on this streetfighter thing.

First, Kens over-reliance on the dragon punch is his weakness. Notice it goes further horizontally then Ryu's but not near as high vertically.

Ken is a pick character. he pokes at his opponents and relies on combo damage. Note how his spin kick doesnt do knockdown damage which usually results in ken getting slammed.

Ryu has the faster taller uppercut, a better fireball and a spinkick that clears the opponent and allows you to regroup. Add in the excellent sidekick move from SF3 and the unblockable fireball special and you have the best character short of Akuma or Shin Akuma.

I had no net for a week but I was thinking about this! Firstly your talking more about 3, I was thinking more about the older ones.

If it goes less high its a good thing because it leaves less time for the counter if its a miss or just a scrape.

The hurricane kick argument is flawed in my opinion because most of the time it can lead to a well timed dragon punch unless your playing a seasoned expert.

I agree Ryu has the better fireball of course, and the side kick is awesome. I think Ken is probably slightly better generally (very very slightly and it depends on 'what your feelin'' at the time), but Ryu has the better specials.

I didnt put too much time into Shin Akuma but he takes loads of damage, his combos are great though.
