Street Fighter 3: Third Strike was released in 1999 but was still being played as late as 2008 and 2009 at evo (the main game at 2008, a team tournament at 2009). I disagree it would be pointless to have two games from the same series as SF4 and 5 are quite different to each other, and they've had Smash Melee and Brawl at the same evo before.
I don't feel like its been dropped because the majority are bored of it (ok, some people are), but because Capcom want people to focus on and buy SFV. And by making SF4 irrevelant, by dropping it being a part of tournaments they're doing that.
Maybe I'm biased though, if it was up to me I'd have Street Fighter 3 as one of the games there this year.
