Matt Dahlgren, Capcom's senior product manager, just announced he's leaving the company after a decade --

Dahlgren was in charge of marketing campaigns for Street Fighter 5, Street Fighter X Tekken, Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition and assisted in the marketing campaigns for Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and Capcom's best selling game of all time: Resident Evil 5.

Linky

The community outreach on the fighting side was amazing back then.

Matt Dahlgren always seemed to give 100% of his effort running the Capcom Pro Tour.

He also apparently helped start Melee's and Smash in general competitive tournaments.

We've been telling people for ages- Best RE is action RE.

But people let nostalgia cloud their judgement!

They're counting every iteration of Street Fighter 2 separately though. SF2 being number 3 counts only the SNES copy of the game, otherwise it sits so far atop that pile as to drawf every other entry in the top ten by an order of magnitude.

I actually did interviews and talked with him a couple of times during the later SF4 and pre-SFV hype cycle of stuff. He really sold the CPT and other things and was always super on point when talking to him. Sucks to see him move on from this, but I hope his skills go on to a better company honestly.

if anything is a meme is Munch's obcession with a mediocre clone of another franchise, the bizarre part being, both franchises are from the same Publisher.

Dino Crisis is like those random ass shit clones of popular games we had all the time in the 90s, but its from Capcom so some people pretend it matters.

Its like if BIO Freaks was published...by...Midwa- wait >_>
