Video: How NOT to play fighting games


Kramez over at Capcom-unity has posted a video of what I imagine is happening at the other end of a lot of ranked Street Fighter IV matches online. Two goofballs stand poised at a Capcom Vs SNK 2 cab, and apparently having mistaken it for Pop'n Music 16, proceed to beat the ever-loving sh*t out of it. This is why we can't have nice things, kids.

All jokes aside, it's pretty funny to witness, and I'm actually kind of shocked at how many special moves these knuckleheads are able to coax out of the machine by randomly smashing the control board. Could it be that these two are savants, having developed an unconventional yet effective technique like so many drunken Kung Fu masters of Hong Kong cinema? 

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say they're less Yoda and more Jar-Jar Binks. Furthermore, they're probably the reason so many of our cabinets are broken, and could both use a dose of whatever would be the arcade equivalent of having one's mouth washed out with soap. Still, it's pretty funny so long as that's not your local spot in the video after the jump.
