Houston Gamers Getting Down With Test Your Skills Texas Bar Fights 6

Let’s face it, my hometown of Houston is known more for having a problem than having a solid videogame community. Which is where we come in. Having trekked far and wide, I came across a group of truly fanatical gamers, in all senses of the word. This weekend I spent some time with them and got to watch an intense competitive bouts. Super Smash Bros., Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom, Super Street Fighter, and King of Fighters, were games that were on the menu for the day as tournament brackets were filled and players battled each other.

“We want to get Houston on the map again,” was the sentiment that echoed by the 40-50 players that I hung out with, and even outside of hometown love, everyone wanted to get Texas recognized again as a place of competitive champions.

It made me feel relieved to know that my hometown of Houston had a growing grassroots movement of hardcore gamers, and I feel honored to be a part of the movement.

Here’s a video recap of the weekend:

Keep an eye on our Twitch channel as we’ll be broadcasting these fight nights and tournaments in the future. And if you’re a Houston gamer, get connected! The Houston video games scene is young, but it’s also strong.
