My guest on this week’s Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show is Justin Wong, one of the greatest fighting game players of all-time.
Despite multiple world titles in games like Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Mortal Kombat 9, Justin is probably most famous for being on the wrong end of a dramatic comeback in the 2004 Street Fighter III finals. Kotaku called it the #1 moment in the history of eSports. The clip is embedded above. If you don’t think competitive gaming is exciting, skip to about :20 in this video and watch this crowd’s reaction.
In this episode Justin and I discuss the match, how he got so good in the first place, and one of my favorite games of all-time. As always the show is available on iTunes, YouTube, and JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com.
