Okay, so in the US there’s obviously a longing to play some Super Turbo by anyone who’s actually ever played the game. Other games like CvS2 and Guilty Gear Accent Core have some following and people who like them, but there’s this sense in the US that those games’ time is gone. This sucks, because good games like ST shouldn’t be cast aside because there’s a newer version, especially when it’s still got a major tournament in Japan for it (SBO).
So here’s what I want to see: a major national tournament for older games that is supported by other tournaments a la the EVO Series. I think there would be enough interest to back it up, provided you drum up support with other tournaments like CEO or Final Round or ReveLAtions and whatever start pushing their older tournaments as well. It’d have to be an organized movement, but I feel like the US could bring back those wonderful old games. I mean, I’d really love to play Vampire Savior in a tournament setting and not have to play against people who’ve been playing the game since before I got out of elementary.
