Ok, so let me give a little background. I’ve been playing SFII since it came out, so I’ve literally been playing the game since some posters have been alive My last arcade experiences include playing at Playland in Times Square (I cut class a lot to get some good comp. What a tragedy that was when it finally closed down.). If anyone remembers that place on this forum, it would make me feel, not so old, maybe? Anyway, before college, I enjoyed getting my dome rocked in Flushing and in C-town to learn how to play, but my college years also brought on the end of a lot of my local haunts and my desire to travel all around the city just to watch kids play Third Strike/ Alpha 3.
Fast forward to today. I live in DC and have a wife and kid. My local Lan party has long since fizzled outs after all my friends are also married with kids. I play a bit online. I frustrate a lot of good players with my Honda. I’ve thought that maybe I try my hand at playing some casuals, or even a tourney, but I’m a little apprehensive about being the oldest guy in the room without some company.
So, let me ask, besides Valle and S-kill, are there a decent number of guys in their 30’s playing in tourneys and/or setting up casuals? What about the DC area? I’d like to meet some like minded individuals to play offline, but don’t know how to start. Any suggestions guys?
