Here is the clip if you want to watch it. It’s short. Basically, he goes out there and says that every VS games is hot trash, but it’s our hot trash. That no matter how bad the game is, in the end the players are what make a game good.
This has always been an important sticking point for me when it comes to competitive games. So long as the game has a big enough talent pool that is invested into the game, the top level games themselves will have something worth watching regardless of how trash the base game is.
