Game play at the highest level. This is beyond the arcade, way beyond {{Xbox Live|Arcade}}, way, way beyond just sitting on the couch with your buddies. This is the best players in the state/country/world getting together to slug it out, the winner is usually awarded prize money, from mere hundreds, to the hundreds of thousands. [[note]]NASL Season 3 total winnings are a whopping 200K[[/note]]

* ''InTheGroove'' had an official tournament while the series was running. Initially, they decided that the main prize would go to the winner of the division that didn't hold on to the support bar, while the support bar division (and most hardcore players used the support bar, since it makes it easier to get higher scores) got basically nothing. No points for guessing how well that went over.

* The ''Videogame/MechWarrior'' series has traditionally had online tournaments, often in the form of a "Planetary League" which adds in persistent rewards (capturing factories, monopoly money to buy mechs, etc) into the otherwise instanced games, though the League is designed to be an endless ForeverWar, albeit with a ResetButton if a team or alliance manages to wipe out the enemy. Individual tournaments are frequently hosted, though monetary rewards are rare.

Game tournaments are now a SeriousBusiness, where a really good player might be able to make his living off his winnings. Some players even sign contracts with their teams, like professional athletes. Because of this, they occasionally get some flak from other fans who accuse them of being StopHavingFunGuys, specifically Tournament players of games like ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', where all items are turned off, and several stages are banned. On the other hand, who wants to lose the finals (and a huge payday) just because [[LuckBasedMission a bomb spawned on your face]]?

* TabletopGame/{{Poker}} has their annual "World Series Of Poker" events where the Main Event (a $10,000 buy-in Texas Hold-Em No Limit) has over 6,000 entrants playing over the course of 9 days for millions of dollars in prize money. Subverted in that poker, by its very nature, is a LuckBasedMission. The Statistics of the game, however, has developed a "[[StopHavingFunGuys proper playstyle]]".
