Capcom Unity asks Umehara Part 1 [2011 Edition]

Two weeks ago, Capcom USA let users post a question for Daigo Umehara. Today, they started posting the first part of his interview.


The motivation:
For me to play a game means trying something new and pushing myself to a new boundary. What matters to me is not whether I can win, throw a cool combo, or just even simply have fun with a game. It also has nothing to do with what others think of me or my play, but how I feel. I keep pushing myself, and that’s what drives me.  I don’t compare myself with others. My inspiration comes from the desire of wanting to challenge myself.

To become a pro:
Luck plays a role in one’s victory or loss at any level – that’s something beyond one’s control. But in the areas I do control, like my execution ability, as a pro, I should not make mistakes. That is at least the obvious element required of me, which gives me an entitlement to call myself a pro. I would say a requirement for moving up to a pro or big tournament level is the same thing – to minimize mistakes.
