Fighting game competitors have it so good today versus the ’90s.
Cramming into an arcade has been swapped with hotel ballrooms and event centers. Beating the local 7-Eleven champions has been replaced with beating global grand masters. Winning a bracket scores you thousands of dollars as opposed to a slightly used Capcom T-shirt. And watching the best players compete no longer requires having a friend that is willing to hook you up witha fifth generation VHS tape.
