The state of fighting games in e-sport
Fighting games are getting big in the e-sport world and to follow up on my 2017 predictions, I decided to talk about it on a podcast. Street Fighter and Super smash bros are the biggest fighting game so far offering hundreds of thousands of dollars at EVO, the event for this genre of video games.
With the upcoming Nintendo Switch launch, I expect Nintendo to dive in and invest energy and money onto the e-sport. I feel that fighting games are a genre that could be dominated by Nintendo.
I’m curious, are you guys fighting gamer? did you watch EVO last year? Let me know what you think and your overall opinion.
