About the Movie
The world of video games is currently a billion dollar industry, which profits off fans both young and old. Since it’s creation, a subculture has formed which looks to make playing video games a career rather than a hobby. Their goal is to turn "gaming" into a legitimate sport, where money can be made through competitions, endorsements, and sponsorships. One of the largest communities within this subculture is the “fighting game” community. In order to make a name for one’s self in the “fighting game” community; players must start in small arcades and work their way through both local and sponsored tournaments. The largest event is this community is known as the Evolution Tournament, or “EVO”. This is Justin Wong’s story as he attempts to work his way through the “fighting game” scene with the release of "Street Fight IV". Justin's goal is to make playing video games competitively his full time career.
Finally!! A look into competitive gaming. And who better to star than Justin Wong? This really took me back to when I was living in NYC spending my free time at Chinatown arcade. A brilliant documentary.
It's not so much a movie about video games as it is a film about rivals and relationships. Great drama, lots of feeling
This documentary shows how incredible the FGC is. If it's just a game, and anyone can do it, then why do the same people show up at the top of every tournament? These guys, especially Justin and Daigo, have taken their passion and dedication to another level, which transcends the fact that they are playing a video game. This is more of a story about the human spirit, and how we can take something as simple as a video game, and use it to inspire millions of people to follow their dreams with passion.
