To be honest, one of the reasons I don't like SF4 a lot is because of the character choice. I only really like playing with the Shotos, and Bison. But I am terrible at the game because I don't play it enough. The game is somewhat boring as you said, and it just doesn't keep my attention. With SSFIV, there will be a bunch of new characters, plus other tweaks and ultras. I, like many, hate the ultras. But being able to choose like in 3S will be a cool addition to the game. And the fact that there will be lobbies (like it should've been from the start), is another thing I am looking forward to.
