* ''PumpItUp'' tries to have a World Pump Festival every year, challenging players to either come up with the best freestyle routines or step the most accurately to a specific set of songs. Unlike the previously mentioned example, most of the accuracy players have had to play without using the support bar.

* The {{Pokemon}} Company International has run the [[http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/World_Championships Pokémon World Championships]] since 2004, containing tournaments for both the [[TabletopGame/{{Pokemon}} TCG]] and, after 2008, the video games. Much as you'd expect, players from Website/{{Smogon}} regularly dominate the elder divisions of the video game tournaments, having a particularly impressive showing in 2011.

* Fictional example: ''Film/TheWizard'' had a {{NES}} tournament in the film's climax. It later experienced {{Defictionalization}}, albeit in a much simpler form, through the 1990 Nintendo World Championship and its successors, the 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge and the [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Nintendo PowerFest '94]].

Game play at the highest level. This is beyond the arcade, way beyond UsefulNotes/{{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 up to several millions. [[note]]The 2015 Dota2 International first place prize was over 6 million US dollars.[[/note]]

* The Mecca of Professional ''StarCraft'' is South Korea. There are two main individual tournaments, each held twice a year: the [=OnGameNet StarLeague=] and the [=MBC StarLeague=]. Additionally, 12 teams of players compete in the Proleague, where each match consists of a series of 1v1 games between players on opposing teams. 11 of the teams have corporate sponsors from major companies such as Samsung, MBC and STX. The twelfth team is the team of the '''Korean Air Force''' for pros who go because of mandatory conscription. A third individual tournament, the [=GOM TV Classic=] had begun to take off but was quickly stifled by ExecutiveMeddling.
