Yoshinori Ono (pictured) is the producer of Street Fighter IV and Super Street Fighter IV. So you'd imagine he'd be pretty good at Street Fighter. He's just not as good as Daigo "The Beast" Umehara (not pictured).
Ono recounted a time he played against Daigo, who is one of the best Street Fighter players on Earth. Ono tells Italian website Next Game:
We once played a so-called 'friendly match'. He's such a serious guy. He always studies the game to improve himself, but he has no sense of fun. I tried to inject some into him, saying, 'You're playing with the producer of Street Fighter IV, it's a nice chance! Ok, you shouldn't let me win but at least let's try to have fun together and show the spectacular things the game can offer...' He replied 'ah' and continued to butcher me without batting an eye. He KO'ed me in few seconds...
Was Ono holding the joystick correctly? Daigo has tips!
