I think it's possible to say a bit more about Sugou. He had an inferiority complex driving him to prove that he was better than other people. Not to be better than other people, but just to show it. In a very real sense, he was trying to be Kayaba (Kirito even points this out) but in the end he never understood the man he was so jealous of.

Anyway, given that his whole motivation is to show off his superiority, it's really no surprise that he did a lot of what people like to consider "stupid" moves like explaining his plans or drawing things out. To Sugou, the destination is less important than the process, and it's important that he belittle and demean as many people on the way as possible, or else he might be forced to remember his own weakness. The opposite of Kayaba, really.
