C’mon, we all have Dream Matches in our heads. We can’t help it, SRK is like Fantasy Football. And with EVO regionals taking place all over the country, now is the time. You know, those matches you always hope to see in pools somewhere, and then put on Youtube for the world.
A lot of hype came up last year when people were talking about the Greatest SF HF player Tomo Ohira returning to the scene. Sadly, he never did, but his legend lives on.
Last EVO the Wolfe brothers shocked everyone by basically coming out of retirement to take AE along with OGer Jason Nelson.
Rowtron reemerged to take on Sanford in MvC2. And I think Duc vs Sanford MM blew us all away.
And the recent MM of Hsien “Texas Techer” Chang, who was one of the first innovators of Third Strike, vs the current #1 American 3s player Mike “Pyrolee” Flauson plans to be just as big.
Even the recent Magneto Godfathers thread showed that people still remember who inspired them to play, and have tremendous loyalty to players we idolized and revere. Soo vs Yipes was exactly what I’m talking about.
Now who would you like to see play head to head? In your Dream Match? We’re all SFers and can’t help but talk about this stuff when the arcade is closed. Now these are matches that are **really **possible, and in some random cosmic calculation they could just happen.
So, here’s a few of my own suggestions. . .
Mike “Legend in his own Time” Watts vs The King Of Hate DXP in Super Turbo.
Marvel’s Godfather Ducvader vs his once young protege Justin “Dark Prince” Jordan in MvC2.
Justin “Marvelous” Wong vs Alex “Calipower” Valle in Alpha2.
Those are just a few from my tremendously limited knowledge of every game. I’m sure we all have some. Post them up and who knows, maybe there’s a Money Match in the making. . .
EDIT: In no way am I trying to disrespect any of the above mentioned players, or even suggesting that they confirmed any of those matchups I posted. Just throwing a few out there to get the ball rolling.
