So I was wondering, after listening to 8-4 podcast, about EVO. What I was wondering about, was how it is compared to other pro-gaming tournaments. I know it's kind of like the Mecca of fighting games as it attracts thousands of competitors from all over the world. Where does EVO and the rest of the fighting game community stand in the growing world of pro-gaming?
When I think about it, fighting games should be at the forefront of the pro-gaming talks as it has existed longer than most of the other genres played. However, when I hear about pro-gaming it's been about LoL, Starcraft (1 and 2) and some FPS like Halo or Counterstrike. EVO is the only the major fighting game tournament that I know of.
Maybe I'm just not paying enough attention to the fighting game scene, but yeah. I just wanted to hear others opinions on why this might be.
