There's a time and place for everything. When you are in a Tokyo arcade, you should play video games, not with yourself. Common courtesy, folks!


According to Final Round organizer Scott Popular, one male gamer seems to have confused his joystick with an arcade one.

Recently, Popular was at Shibuya Kaikan, one of Tokyo's most famous arcades. He popped in to play some Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Absorbed in watching the game, Scott said he didn't notice what was happening nearby at first. "It took me like 5 minutes to visually realize and process that dood was just standing there jackin' his shit," said Scott. That's because, well, masturbation isn't exactly something you expect to encounter at your local arcade.


Even though the fellow gamers pretended not to notice, arcades aren't your private space for you to choke your chicken. Other people use those machines, so gross, ick, stop it. The man (above, caught red handed) was eventually told to leave the arcade.

But what game was he masturbating to? The King of Fighters XIII: Climax. That's no joke.
