It’s no secret that Chicagoland Melee has a thing for Donkey Kong. DK is featured in our Twitch emotes, our tournaments, and yes, our hearts. But why is that? As a newer member of the community, I set out to discover this over the past two months. The results of my research can be found below in this Youtube video! It’s a donukumentary of sorts.
The response has been awesome, with some noting that there is in fact a deeper chronology of DK in Chicagoland that goes beyond the scope of this video.
