I remember going to the arcade for the first time and seeing tons of people waiting for their turn to play the top dog in Street Fighter was my very first glance of a competitive scene in gaming.

I don't have a favourite game but the game I enjoy watching the most is Super Smash Bros. Melee. Hobbies outside of gaming?
