Spontaneity in Fighting Games (Philosophy)
You may or may not find wisdom/use from this–and you may or not find it interesting. Whatever the case, give the video a shot and let me know what you think in the comments.
SOURCE FOR REFERENCE:
This video came about basically because I had a lot of Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 gameplay on my hard drive and didn’t know what to do with it. People in my New England Tekken group chat were talking about mastery & hesitation in fighting games one day and I happened to bring up this Alan Watts lecture. Being Buddhist, I think a lot about human nature, our place in the world, and connections between things–and so this video was born–funnily enough in a spontaneous manner. Rather than being an ordinary gaming montage w/ music, this is an unorthodox gaming montage w/ philosophical wisdom/commentary from an Alan Watts lecture. You don’t need to read too much into it, it’s just an impromptu project of random clips and events (that’s why some clips might not make total sense with the audio lol). Interpret the video the way you want to.
Organizing these random clips to work with the audio was pretty tricky. But making subtitles for 23 minutes of audio was super tedious and difficult (took me almost 2 weeks to finish it—so glad to be done ^_^).
