Ryan Hart: If fighting games are going to progress in eSports, the negativity has to die - if you discredit top players, you discredit your scene

Hold Back To Block TV interviewed Western Wolves' Ryan "Prodigal Son" Hart last month during Final Round 16. Ryan talks on many subjects including his experience at Final Round, the current state of the UK scene and more.


Ryan gives amazing insight into his origins and recalls his tournament memories as an upcoming fighting game player. Hart states that the first tournament he ever won was a King of Fighters '96 event at the age of 17. He continues on to talk about some of his experiences in Japan such as the kumite he played at the Play Max arcade in Japan.

Prodigal Son makes an interesting point in stating that he feels fighting games will never progress in eSports if the scene continues to put each other down. If players respect each other more and cease with the negativity, the community can take strides forward.

Overall, this is an excellent interview jam packed with tons of information. Check it out below.
