During his big moment with the crowd chanting you fucking talked over it, let us see it instead of your awful generic talk about him winning

Yeah, Tokido has basically been my favorite Japanese player since I saw him stand in front of the projector to get the proper "天" on his back for the demon pose. Really glad to see this, great little biography.

Watching this video is the main reason as to why I mained Akuma in SFV. This man, Tokido is such an amazing player in the FGC so much. Period. <3

io son italiano e seguo l esport oltre a parteciparci, ti ripeto bravo nel lavoro del video e gli effetti sonori realizzati in ogni singola scena.....molto toccante gli ultimi discorsi di Tokido... mentre hai tempi i videogiochi erano solo un passatempo.... adesso è un modo per creare nuovi amici e divertirsi

Why is SFV considered the main event?
Duv Jones (9 days ago)
Several things, Street Fighter legacy, the EVO Founders having a say in it.... However, I would have to say that CPT being a thing (along with the money that it does bring) and the fact that it only recently dropped to second place in Player Registrations (That crown would go to Dragon Ball Fighterz this year with a 2000+ bracket, SFV is just shy of DBFZ's numbers however) would have a LOT of pull in deciding things. That said, next year is going to interesting when it does come to game selection. Smash Ult being a thing (and Mr.Wizard's instance on not hosting 3 Smash games @ Evo), SC 6 being a thing, and Dragon Ball Fighterz World Tour being tested at this point plus the health of GG, BBTAG, and others.
Oceania Times because capcom want people to focus on their latest game

But why the fifth installment? My guess is that it has to do something with gameplay.
Initiall_d_ (22 days ago)
Oceania Times well it's the pioneer of fighting games. It's been around since 1987.. so I guess out of respect for such a legendary game, it's only right to make it the main event .. Street fighter opened the door for all fighting games to date

I wish that Guilty Gear Rev 2 got this much hype considering that GGR2 is a superior game mechanically than SFV.

I think people forgot that Snake Eyes actually did get an EVO title in Street Fighter for the U.S. back in 2010 in Super Turbo.
Bainbow (1 month ago)
Tell you what the most inspirational thing Tokido ever did. That FT10 he had with Daigo after his Evo win, Tokido was crushed both in-game and emotionally, failing to ride the momentum from Evo to bring down Daigo. Yet even as Tokido was fighting tears, he closed by saying that he wasn't done, "I'll come back again." God damn, was that inspiring.

I didn't think you would like Lo-fi Hip-Hop, or anything of that type of music (Caleb Belkin - I Fall In Love, Too Easily). Though it's understandable if you just like it because it sounds cool, which I also like it too. :)

Ever since i watched tokido play akuma on sf4, ive played akuma on every fighting game since. What a great journey from a truly great player, he wasn't called one of the 5 fighting game gods of Japan for nothing.

God Tokido destroyed Punk. I always forget how dominant that match was. Also, what a great fucking video this is! Well done!
Tech Core (1 month ago)
I'm so glad Tokido finally got the win he deserved. When I saw this at evo last year, I was a bit torn because I wanted an american to win Street Fighter, but then I had remembered how many near wins Tokido has fought so hard for, and very very consistently, that ended up rejoicing and felt happy for the guy, and the fact that he ended it all with no bitterness really sealed the deal. I was expecting some kind of trash talk, because that's what winners do in fighting games, but this time it was just wholesome.
