Let's talk about 2009 and the fighting game community for a minute!
If this sounds a bit like gang culture... yeah, kind of.
Capcom announced Street Fighter 4.
And video game streaming was getting to be a big thing.
"We have got to clean up our act and change the community culture to not talk like a Spike Lee movie, or we are going to fuck this opportunity up. No more yelling 'I RAPED YA BITCH' when you win. No more friendly jokey racist slang."
But before I end this ramble, one final story. To keep us warm.
One dingleberry tried to argue. The streamer's mods kicked him out immediately. And then the stream resumed, a little more civilized than before.
Or you can be xQc.
Something to think about.
1) This is mostly about the American FGC. Things were VERY different in Japan, Mexico, Korea, and other places.
