    I'll take coverage of that over yet another show featuring two "analysts" yelling at each other.

    C'mon, we saw this coming a mile away
  3. Really? I never did. As a gamer, I think it's cool. As a journalist, I think it's questionable at best.

    I'd take a video game where you're an analyst yelling at another analyst

    I used to watch in awe when they'd broadcast Magic: The Gathering tournaments and the World Stacking Championships.

    I wish they'd replay all that on Classic.

    Hell, I saw the stacking championships on the Deuce in late 2006.

    It can't be worse than the Magic competitions they ran but surely it won't be much better either. Games are so esoteric if it is not one that you play you really don't care and can't appreciate the nuances anyway. If a game comes out that has a HUGE following maybe it could get compete with pool trick shot competitions.

    Gaming broadcasts are huge in Korea but I doubt they will catch on here anytime soon.

    Didn't TBS do this in the early '80s with a show called "Starcade"?
