I was so HYPE for this year’s EVO when I realized that FOUR of the japanese fighting GODs were in the TOP 8! (excluding the fifth god, Nuki, who hasn’t play SF4) Every challengers this year gave us their fullest during their matches and it wass soo crazy, expecially the top 8!!! I was just happy that the Japanese players were able to climb together this far to show how good they are, to be able to preserve their titles as “gods of fighting games”
This year, we all saw Sako play with skills in every match and showing his unmatched executions, we saw Haitani destroying all the Cammys and proving that Makoto is a top tier monster, we saw Tokido’s murder face and his mirror match against Infiltration, and finally, Daigo, the Beast,…yup, his reiatsu killed everybody loool
After the EVO, I was asking myself “Which one of them is the best?”, It’s pretty hard to choose since they play different characters and all have different gameplays. IMO I think Sako is more dominant in the aspect of execution, footsies, reaction, and his mastery with LOTs of characters.
And you, my friends, what do you think? O:
