I recently went to a gaming center in Catonsville, Maryland. It's called Xanadu Games. They host Magic the Gathering meetings and also host fighting game events.
Because I am a major fighting game aficinado, I decided to head up to Xanadu for the first time in April to test my skills. The game of choice was Street Fighter IV. Players that I faced were exceptionally skilled.
I got crushed and immediately thought that I shouldn't waste my time playing fighting games. Then, I thought that the only way to get better is to practice and fight stronger players. Around mid May, I returned to Xanadu Gmaes and although I didn't win the tourney, I at least won a few matches and learned some good tips and strategies.
If you are looking to level up your fighting game skills, then Xanadu Games is where you need to be. They have some of the best players in the state and you may have yourself handed to you by a really good player.
