Nigga, everything in this post is either wrong, hilariously stupid, or both. Lol
I'm simply saying that SF4 2009 is not what is being played today. Period.
Are you really comparing MK9's updates...to SF4's? lmaooooooooooo. Reach for the stars bruh.
And SF being played longer than MK is kind of a myth because SF took forever to come out. You do realize there was 10 years between SF3 and SF4, right?
MK1 got way more play than SF1
MK2 was played just as much as SF2
MK3 was played just as much as SFA
I'll give you MK4 vs Third Strike, but everything inbetween that and MK9/SF4 is a wash...unless you want to discuss the SF EX games lol?
MK has the tech and popularity now, whereas SF popularity seems to be on the decline and never matched MKX's during its peak apparently. Same for Tekken. The hype for Tekken 7 is non-existent. Nobody is playing SFxT either. Damn...without those quarterly "updates", makes one wonder why :-? Both MK9 and Injustice definitely got more play than that game.
Anyway, we off topic. Some people just seem to have a really hard time admitting that SF and MK are on the same playing field now, with MK selling more. I don't know why. They are both great fighting games. Don't understand this need to defend SF's honor as some sort of undisputed fighting game champion of the universe that no other game could ever touch. Its not the 90's anymore lol.
