From the Japanese well-spring of Street Fighter comes this new chart, ranking the console characters alongside the arcade originals in SFIV.
C. Viper is too far up the list, her fakes are cool but she takes too much damage and takes too long to dish it out even for a decent amount. Zangief REALLY shouldn't be in 8th place, he's alot better than that to me. I like the official strategy guide's tier a little better Sagat Zangief Ryu Fei Long Balrog M. Bison Blanka (the main guy I use online, I'd put him above Fei Long...even in front of Ryu in bad online connection issues) Rufus Akuma Seth Chun-Li Gouken Rose (too high up) Ken Sakura El Fuerte Gen Abel Dhalsim Guile C. Viper Cammy (too far down) E. Honda (don't agree with the bottom 3) Vega Dan
Cviper is a musical genius!
I think the list depends on who you can play best with. For example I can't play as Seth at all, takes too much damage and is too slow for me but he's ranked 2nd. Akuma is my best because he has the best balance of speed and power for me.
I love Akuma, Sagat, and Gouken.
