It's sad, but numerous folks have similar galleries, if not videos. This is just one product of online-focused players who are discontented but can't/don't prove themselves offline. Another is acting brash in online communications.
I think these types of behavior recede when a player can confidently play offline. Then, either the player learns tranquility or he knows enough to walk with his tail between his legs.

More like an observation of the fact that you don't see anybody offline uploading cell phone pics of their opponents losing to perfects. Can you imagine how much that photo taker would get laughed at in person?
It sucks when you're the victim but this seems pretty clearly a result of online pseudo-anonymity and just isn't natural face-to-face human behavior. There are plenty of good-natured online players (probably a good majority) but like I said, these are typical actions from the online discontented.

Shouldn't you be somewhat flattered that someone is so proud of themselves for beating you they feel the need to document it? It may be weird because we are all gamers and not someone who should be FAMOUS, but comeon man, you saw mike tyson on the street and he pushed you and you turned around and swung and knocked him clear out, you wouldn't take a cell phone picture of it? (clearly before running)..

well, you know which clown that is ~
88 photos, damn.. willy d has to be the saddest cunt on ggpo
for what it's worth, i occassionally record my own matches and put them on youtube, but that's because i find watching your own matches back is a good way to learn, and i probably lose more than i win in those vids
about offline/online: i can link you to two dozen offline mvc2 tournament matches that will show you that acting like a bitch in real life can and does happen. look at that Izu dude in first SBO, lmao. but for sure, online can make people who are assholes generally even worse than usual. who's gonna take a cell phone pic, that makes no sense. if the match is recorded or it's a tournament match, then you already got your proof - it's just about gloating and stroking your own ego. i haven't played sf4 yet but i seen a couple videos, and there seems to be a few offline assholes on that game too
If technology keeps improving and lag is finally eliminated to miniscule amounts, then I would prefer online over in person any day. You can mute someone online, and it is impossible for it to get physical. Sure, I've run into some trolling online in other games but it can be easily dealt with. The worst experiences I have ever seen and been in all stem from (surprise) in person Marvel.
about ggpo: i only see this type of gallery shit from north and south american players, to be perfectly honest

I've only seen one screenshot of me being beaten perfected, It was waay back when I had no idea what I was doing, I was getting beaten horribly by another, And one of the rounds he gets a perfect, quits, and Posts the image... So what? you beat someone who doesn't know what he was doing... Great job.
I remember I also avoided that player for the longest time, and one day I decided to give him another chance (I had gotten better then) He didn't beat me a single game. what does he do? He pulls the image from way back and posts it in the chat again...
heh. It's funny how people think doing things like that is somehow redeeming... in that case it had the opposite affect. cuz he didn't shit talk the entire time we were playing.
