this isnt a thing there needs to be a lot of, but there is not a lot of it in general, and its kinda weird, but i enjoy seeing a players hands. how they play. as i play many different games, and ive seen my execution make vast jumps the past 6 years almost in those varied games, ive always been intrigued how people hold their stick, how they move the joystick to execute specific commands, how they press the buttons. the videos i have seen on players hands has ALWAYS been helpful, especially the tekken ones.
maybe even a small segment of videos dedicated to the execution monsters in the community, where you interview people noted for their execution, how they do it, how long it took them, hurdles that where hard to overcome that they felt may be impossible, how it felt when they finally became beast at executing, opinions on why many american players lack good execution, etc…
every player interview i have ever seen is underwhelming. its the same old same old questions, that do not entertain veteran players, or provide any help to noobs. id like to hear more dream projects players would like to see (i might start a thread on that for fun today). id like to know more of why they do not like something, beyond the 140 character tweets of opinions we see now. there so much to really be had with the fgc shockingly. for 5 years since sf4, i sometimes still feel like i know nothing of some of the known players, and they have had a grip of interviews done on them.
i think of my own stories coming up in the fgc, specifically tekken at the time, my life journies in general, that in some cases brought me back to my passion for fighting games, when i had stopped giving a shit, and those stories could go on for 5 hours easily. from drunk tekken, and spilling beer on the host’s carpet all the time (lol), to the friends i made, to the games i played, the games i hated then loved, behind the scenes stories, goals, balancing out love, work, and fg’s, etc…
like i know new york players have a grip of stories beyond the little stuff i know, and no one has really tried to get that out of them in interviews. i also hate when people are like, okay, what do you do for fun outside of gaming, as if theyre gonna get an answer akin to, well i do a little coke on the weekends, then go clubbing, fucking random girls if i can. lol. i dont mind that question as much if you lead them a little, try to get more out of i hang with friends. where do you hang, what do you drink, do you drink, do you dance, is a club, bar, what kind of beer do you like. gimme something. lol
the bull pit in the front always has a lot of hype and random shit going on, but its whatever, and you will have to do a shit ton of editing for that to be worthwhile imo.
oh, id like to see more side matches. room matches. hype shit is always going on at majors, and sometimes it seems like arturo is the only one getting a ton of this stuff, but i could be wrong in that assesment.
you could always try your hand at more female player interviews too, but freshen up the questions and shit. bring some life to it. which comes to my last thing, its no shocker we dont always have the best personalities behind the mic (like 90 percent of the time), a nerd problem you could say, so getting someone who isnt a dork, dare i say maybe even attractive, that has a personality, can improvise on the fly, charm, make good jokes, etc… would be heaven sent for a project dedicated to more video content about the fgc. i think of someone like dogface when i say that. good looking dude, fun, charming, good jokes, could fucking improv shit on the fly no problem, and asked pretty interesting questions.
i would like to see interviews blend something like howard stern with a little ryan seacrest. everyone hates ryan seacrest, but a nice blend of the good ole boy, witht he charm, looks, etc…, mixed with howard sterns hard questions, interesting personal questions, jokes, etc…
please dont give us more content thats basically goobertecks and boooo mike ross all over again (shit is square as fuck, and hella wack. dudes be looking and acting like hella virgins behind the mic. they better then that), and dont go over the top like the, why we hate you shit.
