 Time for a e-sports merger.

Sadly, I think we are only going to be left with invitationals and large LAN parties.

All all thoes kids who wanted to be professional video game players...  sad.  Reality check.

A couple weeks back at a bar I saw that the Best Damn Sports Show Period had a $100k Madden finale in Times Square, I believe.  I could be wrong on some or most of this, of course, as I don't have cable and don't give a shart about pro gaming.  I'd pay creative double for drivers and apps that worked and NO MORE FATAL1TY BS.  He's a good/great player, not an engineer, and not at all useful in my day to day activities.



Just turn it into a reality television show.  Guaranteed financial cow.



I dunno... can't think of anything much more boring than watching other people playing computer or video games.



Sad to say, but there isn't much coverage for professional gaming. Not many magazines I know of carry at least a bi-monthly column on professional events, and thats just the tip of the iceberg.

Here's a thought. Provide monster prizes, along with a season like format (maybe echo the way the World Series of Poker is set up?), keep the games, maps, and game-modes fresh from match to match. Finally, wrap it all up into a syndicated television series on, say, G4 maybe. 

I don't know bout the rest of you, but I would tune into watch an hours worth of people fraggin the hell out of each other.
