"Fighting games are the oldest eSport, why aren't they the biggest eSport?" Daily Dot's Efren Salinas confronts the competitors of Absolute Battle 6 with this intriguing inquiry.

Limited accessibility as compared to PC-based games is a big barrier according the AB6 competitors. Perhaps it's in the fact that fighting games aren't quite compatible for online play yet? Perhaps they are too difficult at an entry level to bring in enough new players?

Online compatibility, diversity in the culture and the difficulty of fighting games are all interesting points that're tossed around by Salinas' interviewees. In the video, you'll see what players like EG|K-Brad, F3|Alucard and Nebtune have to say on the matter.

Hit the jump to check it out.
As you're probably thinking, we haven't at all conclusively answered this question, so we turn to you EventHubs readers, why do you think it is that the fighting game genre falls where it does in the list of popular eSports?
