18-year-old Ryan Hart competes in Tekken 3 on British television program 'GamesMaster' - video clip from 1998 In a recent interview WW|Ryan Hart mentioned that his humble beginnings in fighting games included a stint playing Tekken competitively. Today, we take a look back into the year 1998 and see Ryan Hart showing off his Tekken 3 skills against other top Tekken players at the time.


EnglishJaguar uploaded an episode of a peculiar British television show called GamesMaster in which an 18-year-old Ryan was a guest. The four combatants square off in Tekken 3, obtaining points based on how many rounds they win.

Ryan was known as the best Tekken 3 player in the country at the time and uses Paul Phoenix throughout the majority of the show. We rarely get to see decade old footage of current pro players competing so this is definitely an interesting treat.

Note: At around 12:30 in the video begins a... strange segment in which two women play a horse riding game. Although there really isn't anything NSFW here, it's a bit suggestive.

The Tekken segment resumes at around 18:40 in the video. Hit the jump to check it out.
