Can’t Stand the Heat

No pain, no gain. Right?

I have a question: Do people actually prefer to play as Ken Masters? I know I never do. I would always choose Ryu over Ken, but I’ve seen quite a few online discussions that argue that Ken is actually the better playable character to use. Is that true?

    Ryu is overall more balanced, and is in a better spot than Ken right now, but Ken has a better Shoryuken, has a higher stun threshold, and stuns faster in exchange for less health. Problem is, what Ken does, Akuma does better.

  • Al the mighty

    I use either. Both are fun.

    I used to feel the same way about Ken, back in the Street Fighter 2 days, but now Ken is my main.
