Told You Sports and Video Games Had a Lot in Common

There’s a great article up on Next Generation about the famous Street Fighter III match between Daigo and Justin wong, specifically the famous YouTube video of their fight. Which is, specifically, an article that was a originally published in Edge Magazine (UK), so they unfortunately don’t list the author. The piece does a great job in helping someone who’s not incredibly informed about the game (such as myself) appreciate it’s intricacies. The same way that a great piece of sports writing will help you understand even Byzantine games like Baseball. It also links to a video of the full fight, which you see in completely a new light after reading the article.
