Sugou was a villain who took an active, malicious desire in hurting and manipulating others for his own personal pleasure and power. Comparatively, Kayaba only cared about his goal, the impact on the lives of the players was an unfortunate consequence of seeing his dream fulfilled. That these people would suffer was inevitable, but his goal was not to create suffering.

Side by side, while both men committed evil deeds, Sugou comes off as a far more despicable person, even though Kayaba's indifference took a greater toll on human life. (By my calculations, 347 microhitlers. )
That Sugou comes off as a far more despicable person, doesn't lessen Kayabas crimes.
And that Kayabays goal was not to create suffering is irrelevant beacuse he must have nown the outcome of his deeds, but he simply didn't care. Kayaba is responsible for the suffering an death of thousends of people.
Kayaba is just a different kind of a monster than Sugou, thats all.
