Our own Samit Sarkar was really having a good time with EVO 2010. It's the one time this year that the often downtrodden sports fan can raise his head up high and say to his videogame-loving, sports-hating brothers and sisters "HA! If you like watching EVO, then you can't make fun of me for watching sports! It's the same thing!"

Yeah Samit, that would be true, if in baseball the pitcher could throw multi-hit, flaming baseballs out of his hands, or if in Football, you could tackle a guy ducking on the ground and flexing you muscles until electricity flew out of your body, shocking the guy with the ball (and half your team) into submission. Stuff like that just one part of why I can watch competitive Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom or Super Street Fighter IV all day, but have a hard time still during your average sporting event for more than two minutes. I'd definitely watch Football more often if it involved giant robot dogs breathing fire on light saber wielding robot until they explode.

Curious about what competitive fighting games are all about? Did you miss EVO 2010 this weekend, or do you just want to relive some of the event's best matches? I've thrown a few of the more exciting EVO 2010 moments (Super Street Fighter IV Grand Finals, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 exhibition, Super Street Fighter IV Woman's Finals, Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom Finals, and Tekken 6 Finals) together for you after the jump. The Tatsunoko matches are probably my favorite. I had no idea some of that stuff was possible in the game. Even the announcers sound shocked.

Would you watch a season of competitive fighting game matches on TV if you had the chance? Do you think regularly televised tournaments of this type would get better ratings than reruns of Cops?
