Essential SF4 viewing

Now that SF4 is done and dead, and SSF4 is here, I thought it would be good to list the many moments that made 2009 such an awesome year for the Street Fighter spectator. (I can’t play SF that well, so I watch tons of videos instead).

Warning: being a Ryu main, there’s a lot of Ryu vids here.

What?!! Lariat got nerfed? At least we have each other Edmund.....

The Rules of the Zangitroll

Troll rule #1: Abuse the silly headbutt over and over and take all the damage you can from the dizzy.
Troll rule #2: Do whatever it takes to make sure you can continue doing rule #1.
Troll rule #3: Since these are *only* ranked battles, DO NOT LOSE!

(Zangief’s neutral jump uf fp does a headbutt move that does an enormous 700 stun. That means if you hit this move twice in quick succession, you probably dizzy the opponent. However, the move is so vertical and has such a lousy hitbox that it’s practically impossible to hit any decent opponent with it. It’s a joke move basically.)

Shiro’s amazing match from SBO. Mindgames and mixup after mixup. The Viper made the Shiro guess wrong seven times in a row! Working on a perfect. Then all Abel does is make him guess wrong twice, and he comes back all the way. What a round. SF4 mindgames.
