Hey guys, wrote an article on the fighting games community, and the language therein. Enjoy!
Here’s a brief snippet to get you going:
“I’ve been running TekkenCanada for 8 years. I’ve been heavily involved in the Fighting Games Community (FGC) since 1999, first in Europe, and now in Canada. I host weekly gatherings at my place, and I am the heart of the Tekken scene in Montreal. When I lived in Toronto, I showed up to as many tournaments as I could, and although I couldn’t be as active as some other members, like my good friend Neorussell, I pitched in to help whenever I had the time.
I’m also an avid follower of most large FGC events, either participating in and/or organizing the ones in Canada, and watching most of the ones in the USA. I’ve written 7 articles on why I love fighting games, the beauty of tournaments, and why the FGC has been my home for over 13 years.
And now my home is under attack.
Well, I won’t stand for that. Let’s talk.”
