    I have to say this was one of the best documentaries that I have ever seen. Mike seems to be extremely awesome and very much down to earth. Maybe to even meet him one day would be sweet. I wish him luck and it really opened my eyes to see what players have to put in to become one of the greats. You can definitely see he puts his blood, sweat, and tears into playing. Great job all around for the movie I hope everyone that plays any fighting game gives this a look to appreciate the games that much more.

    i liked the documentary but street fighter is a terrible game especially since the online is filled with kids who just shoot fireballs mortal kombat is more fun but still a good documentary

    This was just an amazing look into the fighting game community. Mike Ross is such a humble player and all around awesome guy. I really hope this is where the fighting game community is going. If ppl didnt believe in Mike Ross b4 "FOCUS", they definitely believe now.

    I've been a big Street Fighter II fan when it first came out in the arcades 20 years ago (wow, it's been 20 years) and I've been following the series ever since. I loved how you guys (G4) made a film about the professional gaming community featuring with Mike Ross. Great job G4! Hope to see many more!!

    Great film. Us gamers need more of these documentaries since we are so passionate about what we do. It's great seeing these kinds of things. We love this hobby!

    I've not been one to really follow professional gaming. Not cause I dont like it, just never taken the time to. I'm glad I watched this. Well put to together and a very cool story about one gamers journey to the top. Having not followed this, I found myself watching Mike Ross' matches as if they were actually happening, ha. I didn't know if he was going to win or lose. Had to laugh at myself pulling for someone in a match that happened over a year ago.

    I wish him luck. Seems like he has what it takes. Nicely done G4. I look forward to more of these.

    This was awesome. Movies like this and King of Kong are too few in number. They need to make more.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this. It gives people a chance to see that a person who enjoys video games isn't just mindlessly playing them for no reason. Sometimes, it serves purpose, whether its to make a living, or doing it to prove how far you can go with things when you work hard at it. Mike Ross is a pretty cool guy. :)

    This was awesome, if you don't have a smile after this and appreciate what Mike "Mike Ross" Ross is then I feel sad for you.
