King of Capcom: Robin Mihara’s Victory in One of Gaming’s Forgotten Tournaments

Erik Ackerlund – Reblogged from our friend Patrick Scott Patterson regarding Losthammer’s own Robin Mihara.

Classic video gaming accomplishments and records have been all across the mainstream media for the past few years.

From the battle for the top spot in Donkey Kong to new champs on games like Frogger or Pac-Man, films such as The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, Chasing Ghosts: Beyond the Arcade, and the upcoming Doctor Kong have helped the champions of the 1980s classics gain much mainstream attention in the modern day media.

Champions from the 1990s, however, are not yet the media darlings that many of the classic 1980s gamers have been.  Outside of the 1990 Nintendo World Championships and a few later Nintendo contests, very little history from the last decade of last century has been passed along to historians of the gaming industry today.
