PAX East 2013 – The Fighting Game Community: From A Niche Genre to a Worldwide Phenomenon

As the growth in competitive gaming and eSports rises, one community is primed and ready for the spotlight: the fighting game community.  Influenced largely by the success of games like Street Fighter 4 and Marvel vs. Capcom 3, the fighting game community has grown into a cottage industry with members planning and organizing their own events, content producers streaming live and on-demand footage and prominent members getting hired by major developers based on their accomplishments in the community.

Join community leaders for a discussion about the current state of the FGC and its major events and projects, as well as the what the future may hold for the growth of the community.
