I know them all. But I heard of the Ogre twins first. Ogre 2 finished off each Halo game with a national championship, which is incredible. Played against both of them too, so that helps in my vote XD. Jwong is tight though.

I agree that eSports are not sports, but that's why they have a different name: eSports. Obviously that's trying to tie into the emotional attachment people have to "real" sports, and video games most definitely are not SPORTS sports, but what are you gonna do. Saying "video games aren't sports hurr hurr" makes you look like a douche and makes me wonder why you're on a site about competitive Smash.

Seriously, why is this so fighting game biased? It's as if you googled for others and got ****ing HALO as your FPS e-sport of choice. Seriously, try harder, console games are (with good reason) known as failures in the e-sports community. How about some 1.6 and Source and throw up Dirtysecret, ClowN, Juan, Walle, and teams that win more in a single tournament than MLG puts up in an entire year. Even CoD4 Pro Mod is more competitive than HaLOL.

You figured me out. It's definitely not that the American eSports scene -- in terms of mainstream coverage, money, and hype -- is primarily centered around MLG and its games. Nope, definitely not that.

Oh, and it's also definitely not that Smash is a fighting game and thus our community would be mostly familiar with other fighting games.

it's really sad how almost every poll you make neal, the most negative option of "i don't care" or "none of the above" is the highest tallied one.

Seriously, just remove that option from the poll. For this one "I'm not familiar" suffices. I guess i'm just nitpicking. Of course it's there for a reason, it just iirks me for some reason that people can be so negative on every subject.

Sponge why so saltious, brah?

Ogre twins are more known than Clown, and with reason. Clown was cool on WCG Ultimate Gamer, but there is also a bit fatty article about him cheating in a 1.6 tournament.

I don't follow PC too much, but I do follow it a little bit icon_smile. Clowns a cool guy though.

Now, Halo and Deadspace have won me over, it's actually sad how addicted i am to Halo and Crysis II (Yes, The Leak...) atm, but, hey, There's a few hyped releases coming.

- Bulletstorm

Gameplay, looks better then the cover, i got this thing reserved <33

Here's a interesting shot.

In the game bulletstorm, you basicly are trying to get points by using your enviorment to your advantage, which has been done, but not in the way Bulletstorm has...


Homefront's another one, HYPE <333333

Homefront is when China takes over america, set in 2020, not very futuristic, almost like a CoD and Crysis Mix.


I don't have to explain MVC3, because, hopefully, you guys know of it... But i'm really looking forward to these upcoming FPS releases, plus Portal 2, which is so unique, i have to try it... Anyway, back to black ops and reach for me...

What's so bad about it? Not everyone can know about something. I just voted for "I'm not interested in eSports." as well. I don't even know what it is. From seeing the comments I assume it's like MLG or something.

I think there could have been better choices for the list and included more games. No CS/WC3 options, no Fatality. If someone is familiar with Justin Wong or Sanford I'm sure they're familiar with Daigo. Same with Jinro and Boxer.

I think Sanford should have been replaced for Grubby, but that's it. Grubby is a wc3 genius and actually moving onto SC2.

boxer is more famous than any of them, and has been around in starcraft for over 10 years. how do you not know him?

I've heard of all these people, but its a question of who is the most known

EDIT: also, grubby should be mentioned, he is a bit of an icon
