No, But I met a guy that was a professional gamer at a convention this past summer. Was telling me how his winnings was paying for him and his team to be at the convention. Considering how drunk he was I don't know if any of it was true though.

I've never actually heard of this before. I know they have things for card games like the Magic games and such, but I didn't know they did it for video games. But, it does make sense that they'd have them!

No. One of the great things I love about games is that I can play them myself. With other sports I'm just a spectator - like racing - or just an amateur dabbler - like football and rugby.

I'm not really into gaming so watching other people play doesn't really sound that exciting to me

G4 used have a show on it (couple of years ago, i think). I watched it a couple of times but never really got all that into it.

Watched, no, but I DID date someone who gamed competitively for awhile. I have been known to watch others play games. Especially the scary ones, like Resident Evil, because the music gets all intense and then I am too stressed to move the character into the obvious zombie attack!
