Your Street Fighter analogy is exactly what I don't want from Suikoden; that is, I don't want them to continually "play it safe" and keep giving us Suikoden 2.2.5alpha, for fear of scaring away the fans.
S3 did almost everything differently and I felt was a real breath of fresh air for the series, and rather than look at what 3 didn't do so well and refine or correct those aspects when the game was criticised, they lost all courage and reverted back to the old template.
I hope V is a very different game from the others, and I also hope it will be a great RPG, but I don't want them to get so caught up in "pleasing the fans" that that would take precendece over everything else.
