Viper is my main and playing with her for a while gets your execution up no matter what. 
 
To answer your question, Gief is easy when you play bad players but some characters like Ryu, Sagat, Akuma and basically anyone with a good projectile and that zones well can deal with him. He's fun to play against though.

aye :( "
Am I the only one who hears Stang's posts in my head as Captain America?
 
Anyway, he's one of the best at punishing people, because most of his moves take away heaps of damage.

" Viper on the other hand is imo a footsie oriented character, and she requires a lot more mind games to land her damage than geif does.
lol Viper is not a footsie oriented character at all!! She has awful normals with the exception of her overhead.

" I think Viper is a very good character for mind games, if you arent good at that, then you cant be good at viper, which might explain why so many of them arent very good. "
Any character is pretty much good for mind games, with Viper you need to have her super jump cancels, thunder knuckle cancels and juggles down though which I think makes her by far the most difficult character to play.

Yes, you can play mind games with anyone. The difference is, Viper is better suited for someone who wants to do that.  Thats why she has all those cancels.
Sagat on the other hand, can get by on mostly power. Hell, weve all lost to a masher.  Most  of the top tier chars can get by on flowcharting alone. The  fact that they exist in every grade of the game means they can definitely beat a lot of people this way.
 
you cant mash with viper. I tried it when I first had the game when I  was trying to get all the endings. She doesnt have a goto move

I get what you're saying. If you wanna win with play alot of these top tier guys then you can get by on pretty lame low skill flowchart nonsense and still get some wins (well at least online), but if you wanna play any kind of Viper and win you've got to be on point. I understand that. I mean, who's ever lost to a starting Viper, no one has. I bet everyone's lost to a random mashing Sagat a few times, though.

@dbz1995: If Captain America is a mentally disturbed alcoholic, then yes, that is me you hear.

@Ygg: footsies goes much deeper than having good normals.
