The Street Fighter

Today I just wanted to share this recent internet discovery I made with you guys. It's a web series called 'The Street Fighter" made by The Game Station. They usually put out more comedic gaming videos but this was their first attempt at something more dramatic. Sure it isn't perfect and has plenty of issues inherent to amateur productions but what I like about it is how it portrays gaming as a totally natural part of someone's life. Phil plays a lot of games but he healthily has his priorities straight as a father and someone looking for a job. Like great sports movies it recognizes that the sport itself really isn't the point. It's the people. I'll just let the rest speak for itself. Enjoy!

The other episodes are after the break.

At least it isn't "The Tester" #teamegoraptor
