Frank Joseph / Mr. Yagami
Y'know, sometimes it's healthy to be proud of yourself. I'm my own toughest critic, and I've lost many hours of sleep working on this website; but in the end, my 20+ years of passion have paid off in more ways I can describe in words. TFG is one of my life's accomplishments and
I'm glad other people still enjoy fighting games and art as much as I do. (TFG was up and running before the acronym "FGC" was popular, or even used.) As TFG's webmaster, I've put 10's of 1000's of hours into managing FightersGeneration.com, writing reviews, coding, making videos, keeping "party games" off the site, and managing TFG social media
for 2 decades. It hasn't always
been easy or fun, but it 100% has been rewarding. . . Enjoy The Fighters Generation and fighting games for life, my friends.
For being my one and only amazing wife, being patient & understanding when I'm spending hours
working on articles, website stuff, social media posting and/or doom-scrolling, and of course... playing TEKKEN. Also thanks for being TFG's awesome proofreader and making sure I don't butcher the
English language. In general, thanks for being wonderful every day. <3 You are the real MVP and Master. (No really, she's actually a "Master" ranked 5th Dan blackbelt, in 3 styles, and an amazingly talented and disciplined martial artist.) Words could never do justice to how special you are to me or how much I love you.
Thanks for being one of my best
friends, a lifelong sparring partner in MVC2, SoulCalibur & TEKKEN, a big inspiration in my life, and of
course... being TFG's original OG Featured Artist. Also thanks for always cracking me up with your epic voice acting and inspiring me to keep drawing. Many fun times, many fun memories. Session soon? Love ya brother.
For selflessly helping and supporting the website for well over a decade,
such as sending in timely news updates,
links & corrections. Also thanks for co-creating two awesome TFG-themed arcade fight sticks back in the day, and
for sending me ALL of the awesome birthday & X-Mas gifts over the years! Thanks for being a generally good guy with a great heart. There aren't enough people like you in the world!
For donating over $1000+ on TFG
Twitch (OMG!) and being a visitor of the website for 15+ years! 0.0 Seriously my friend, your support is incredible and I can't thank you enough in words. Also, thanks for browsing TFG while riding inside a freakin' U.S. Army tank... on the job. You
Hisham "Futeki" Al-Kubeyyer
For being a TFG visitor and supporter since the very beginning. Thanks for your wise words of wisdom and awesome input, my friend! Also, thanks for sending me amazing birthday gifts (Art of Tekken, DMC5 Collector's, etc). And not to outdo yourself, thanks for buying me a friggin' video game console - something no one besides
my parents ever did in my lifetime. (I love my Nintendo Switch w/Pro controller + Smash Ultimate.) REALLY COOL of you. Now people are going to ask me to put Smash on TFG. lol. Finally, thanks for teaching me about your culture. It's amazing to have a friend in another country.
Thanks for being one of
my best friends, a worthy rival in fighting games, and introducing me to the greatness of NEOGEO Pocket Color and Card Fighters Clash back in the early 2000's. Thanks for sharing your wisdom and inspiration over the years.
Also, thanks for proofreading my old school reviews and adding your input (and many years of fighting game experience) back in the day. Also, thanks for your 6 years of service in the U.S. Navy, brother!
