About

Fighting Game Player Quote Cards refer to a series of image macros pairing photographs of fighting game players with humorous quotes they've said in the past. The series is reminiscent of similar memes in the NBA and sports fandoms, such as "I Wasn't Really Familiar With Your Game."

Origin

On September 14th, 2023, the official Twitter account[1] for EVO posted an image macro of fighting game player Justin Wong featuring a quote from him about parries. In response, user @TheSupernoon[2] quote-tweeted it, writing, "we need to start making these photo quotes with FG players. high level meme content right here." The tweet gained over 530 retweets and 5,000 retweets in less than 24 hours (shown below).
