While you can argue the nuances of whether comics inspired video games to show a freeze frame of characters squaring off with a "VS." or "FIGHT" inbetween, which is questionable itself, this particular scene was clearly referencing a Street Fighter/Tekken type freeze frame, not a comics convention, and Scott Pilgrim was innovative in referencing video games in that way. You're just hating and nitpicking.
While it might have been "fresh" it certainly wasn't "pioneering".
It's an important distinction.
