Evo Moment 37
One of the most famous moments in competitive gaming history
On August 1, 2004, one of the most famous moments in competitive gaming history occurred in the halls of Cal Poly University in Pomona, Calif., sending hundreds of fighting game fans into a frenzy and many more scrambling to find out what happened and how it happened.
It is the most-watched tournament highlight ever, totalling more than 30 million views, first making its mark at a time when there were no major video streaming websites.
Ten years later, the event and this video are still brought up in video game conversations, and the two fateful competitors involved continue to compete today for world championships in fighting games.
In "Evo Moment 37," follow the journey toward the moment known today as 'The Daigo Parry.' The book chronicles the road toward the 2004 Evolution Fighting Game World Championships, the strange sudden rise of "Street Fighter III: Third Strike" in the United States, and how one unforgettable event in competitive gaming history changed several people's lives forever.
