Two Rivers Correctional Institution’s incentive unit PS4 video game tournaments has been a huge hit! The Paradigm Shift Club (PSC) hosted another video game tournament this year (first was Madden 23) but the Injustice 2 tournament received significantly more interest than the previous event.
The initial bracket is generated for each incentive unit where AICs play their on-unit tournament to determine an overall unit winner. The winner from each unit then plays in the final event against all eight housing units including the Minimum facility.
The video game tournaments are popular amongst the population because it reminds many AICs of their life before prison as many are lifelong gamers. Gaming has become a pastime and favorite activity within prison as well. The game tournaments offer AICs a platform to compete and put their skills on display for the institution.
The final Injustice 2 tournament was won by Alexander Tanguy who never lost a match on his road to the championship. Alexander played this video game prior to his incarceration so he may have had a leg up on the competition. The final game was played on a 130-inch projector with excellent sound and video. The PSC hopes to offer more video game tournaments in the future and continue the trend of supporting healthy and positive activities.
