This idea maybe controversial considering I got get after the Brazzers wanting to help support the FGC. But basically it would be an idea to have a Joystick Casino.
I am an older gamer 29. And I love the fighting game genre with a passion. But if the community wants video games and especially fighters not to be seen as kiddie then some times drastic measures have to be taken.
I think it would be a good idea for a casino in Las Vegas to run fighting games tournaments where people could bet on who would win. I mean I hear there is already underground betting want not make it legal.I think many people who thrown down their bets of a Justin Wong versus Daigo match.
A lot of arcade owners have trouble keeping there arcade profitable. But if they say added booze, gambling(If in Las Vegas or an Indian Reservation), and maybe some exotic dancers themed around the fighting games. I believe it would be quite profitable.
I feel that I will be probably get much ridicule for saying such a statement but I had to say it.
