Sakurai knows it's the obvious choice and Pacman might not be our Namco rep

It is still the most successful 3D Fighting game out there and taking Japan into account, it is partially responsible for Fighting Games making a comeback, alongside Street Fighter 4.

Well, that's a common claim people make but the reality is the fighting game genre hasn't truly changed.

It's kind of a thing that Fighting games in the west were dying out, then Street Fighter 4 came out and suddenly the FGC had an explosion of new people coming in.

So many big profile games came out after SF4 was released, as well as re-releases of older games, it's kind of a noteworthy thing the state of the FGC before and after Street Fighter 4 in the west. Allegedly it was similar in Japan, only Tekken 6 helped play a significant role there.
The site Meeple argues at for too much of his life!

That's just the popular opinion but there's nothing to suggest that that's true. People just saw the return of SF and think fighting games are revived, yet the opinions and sales for the other fighting games has been the same even before SF4.
Wonder Red, Pac-Man for Super Smash Bros. 4.
Tekken vs. Dead or Alive, Shonen Jump vs. Capcom please
