Watch: Are fighting games losing popularity?

Here's this week's Eurogamer Show.

Street Fighter 5 is out now and - discussions about Chun-Li's boobs aside - I can't help but feel this launch has lacked the same buzz that characterised previous releases.

As it turns out, Aoife got the same impression - but just what is going on? Are fighting games in general less popular than they used to be? Have they become more the preserve of hardcore fight fans? Are Street Fighter fans fatigued by the numerous iterations of each title? We decided to talk it out in this week's Eurogamer Show, while also duking it out in Street Fighter 5. Badly.

Have a look at the video below and give us your thoughts on the matter. Not on the gameplay, mind you - seriously, we know we're rubbish.
